While trying to keep their crime a secret, friends, co-workers and a bounty hunter look to use the child for their own purposes.
Dir: Joel and Ethan Coen / 1987 / US / 94 min
“In a shrewdly calculated move to show their versatility, the Coens made this madcap comedy right after Blood Simple. If their debut was slow and spare, this one has breathneck pacing and hopping banter by terrific Holly Hunter and Nicolas Cage.” – Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.com
“A wacky, happy, daring, darkly comic tale of parenting outside the law.” – Rita Kempley, Washington Post
“The laughs keep coming courtesy of the many slapstick highlights that litter this fast and furious action comedy.” – Almar Haflidason, BBC
