Dir. Joel Coen. USA, 1987. 1h 34m. Starring Holly Hunter, Nicolas Cage, John Goodman, Trey Wilson, William Forsythe, Sam McMurray, Frances McDormand, Randall "Tex" Cobb.
Coen Brothers knockabout comedy in which Holly Hunter’s plays a cop who kidnaps one of a set of quintuplets from a wealthy family with her partner (played by Nicholas Cage). Driven, badass, fast-talking, and with perfect coming timing, Hunter is the shining light in a film filled with numerous star turns.
'Starting from a point of delirious excess, the film leaps into dark and virtually uncharted territory to soar like a comet.’ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
’Has all the classic excesses of a Coens movie -- brilliantly crazed characters, apparently nonsensical dialogue and some fantastic camera shots.’ Empire Magazine
