Outlandishly funny movie with Nicholas Cage and Holly Hunter at their comic best.

Add in John Goodman as a heartless desperado (think, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and the monstrous (in this movie) Randall "Tex" Cobb as a fire-blowing bounty hunter and you've got an over-the-top clown show that keeps on making you laugh.

Cage as a deadpan, unintelligent, yet hyperarticulate narrator is one of the funniest performances I've ever experienced.

Once of my all time favorite movies! It is interesting to view Holly Hunter and Nicolas Cage then and where they are today in their careers. Very funny movie!

A wonderfully funny film from the Coen brothers, as was "Oh Brother where art thou." Nicholas Cage and Holly Hunter play in this as a married couple who want to desperately have a baby. I believe this to be one of Cage's best. My husband and I enjoyed this movie very much, and both feel it is one of those movies that you love watching over and over. I read where the Coen brothers have been a long time friend of Holly Hunter's, and created the role she plays in this, with her in mind. You won't regret it if you grab this one.

Raising Arizona
Arnita D. Brown | USA | 02/03/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recidivist hold-up man H.I. McDonnough and police woman Edwina marry, only to discover they are unable to conceive a child. Desperate for a baby, the pair decide to kidnap one of the quintuplets of furniture tycoon Nathan Arizona. The McDonnoughs try to keep their crime secret, while friends, co-workers and a feral bounty hunter look to use Nathan Jr. for their own purposes. A lot of things come together to make this movie highly enjoyable; acting, writing, music, pace and directing. "Raising Arizona" is an enjoyable and funny experience all the way through. Highly recommended.
