RAISING ARIZONA

“I tried to stand up and fly straight, but it wasn’t easy with that sumbitch Reagan in the White House. I dunno. They say he’s a decent man, so maybe his advisors are confused.” – H.I. McDonough

In this 1987 screwball comedy from The Coen Brothers, an ex-con named H.I. McDonough (Nicolas Cage) and his policewoman wife Ed (Holly Hunter) are desperate to have a child but when they find out she is unable to give birth due to her “insides being a rocky place where his seed can find no purchase” they decide to kidnap a well-to-do furniture salesman’s baby. The zany antics follow. The supporting cast includes John Goodman, Frances McDormand, Randall “Tex” Cobb and William Forsythe.
