Still as good today
Watched this again recently and still as good today as it was then.
“Son, you got a panty on your head . . . ”
Hilarious! Two then-unknowns, Nicholas Cage and Holly Hunter – both future award-winners, and deservedly so – play the most unlikely of couples. Cage is Hi, an “armed” (I use quotation marks because he normally makes sure the gun he carries is not really loaded) convenience-store robber. Upon being arrested, he meets a lovely little police officer named Ed (Hunter) and does not let the circumstances stop him from flirting with her (“What kind of name is Ed for a pretty thing like you?” Her answer: “Short for Edwina. Turn to the RIGHT!) Upon the occasion of his second arrest, he notices that his Officer Ed has clearly been crying. She reveals to him that her fiancée has dumped her for another woman, and he responds by calling her ex a “fool” for leaving her. Hi serves his time and meets other inmates including a trustee (I assume) who simply growls at him as he passes by and two other convicted armed robbers/brothers (John Goodman and William Forsythe; these guys are geniuses at casting). Upon his release, He and Ed are married (“Okay, then”, says the pastor who performs the ceremony after they say their I-do’s). But something is wrong in paradise. You see, Ed BADLY wants to have a child – or children – and after some time trying to conceive on their own, they decide to see a doctor, who gives them the news that Ed is infertile. Upon trying to adopt, they are rejected because of Hi’s, as Ed herself puts it, “checkered” past. But then, they see on television that a local millionaire furniture-store owner who goes by the name Nathan Arizona and his wife have just had a set of quintuplets due to the wife’s use of fertility drugs. Rationalizing that it won’t be so bad to take one baby from a couple who already have four others, they proceed to kidnap one of the tots (Nathan Junior, they think) and bring him home.
But of course, complications ensue. You see, our two brother-convicts have escaped, and who do they seek out? None other than their prison buddy Hi. Needless to say, Ed is not thrilled with this turn of events. Meanwhile, Hi has lost his job due to beating up his boss (after said boss, while at their house for a barbecue, tells him that he and his wife are “swingers” and wants to know if Hi would ever consider “wife-swappin”.) Hi cannot bring himself to tell Ed that he lost his job for “defending her honor”, and this causes tension between the two. So much so that, although he has turned down a chance to join in a bank heist with the escaped-con brothers, he decides to rob a convenience store he goes into with the intention of getting diapers for the nipper (which he does, just before he pulls an unloaded gun on the clerk and orders him to empty the till). Seeing what he is doing, Ed decides to leave him there, driving off and taking the baby with her. Meanwhile, it turns out the teenage, braces-wearing clerk has a (loaded) gun of his own, and has no qualms about using it. There follows a chase scene that must be seen to be believed. The words “fall on the floor funny” come to mind. Ed finally shows up, picks up Hi, and they retrieve the diapers, which had been abandoned on the road somewhere along the way.
The Arizonas, in the meantime, have troubles of their own besides a missing baby. You see, a bounty hunter (Randall “Tex” Cobb) has shown up and promised to find the child. But he is not satisfied with what they have officially offered as a reward and threatens to sell the baby on the black market if they do not agree to his price.
Poor Hi, meanwhile, has to deal with his outraged boss (the “swinger”) who shows up at his trailer again to officially fire him. But that’s not all, folks – he has figured out the baby’s true identity for himself, and wants the baby for himself and his wife (who seems to have a baby obsession; she wants another as soon as the youngest one they have is “too big to cuddle”). But the brother-cons overhear this and decide to kidnap the baby for the reward. Hi, of course, refuses to let Nathan Junior (he thinks) go without a fight, but he loses. The brother-cons take the baby and attempt their bank heist. But they decide to take the baby into the bank with them and then forget to put him back in the the car as they make their escape. Upon discovering they have forgotten him, they scream – and then scream some more when a cannister of blue paint that was put in their bag along with the money from the bank explodes.
It all leads up to a final confrontation between the bounty hunter, Hi, and Ed. I won’t give anything else away, just say that this is one of the funniest, most original films I have ever seen. Cheers.
