Raising Arizona

Coen Brothers comedy rendered mostly-annoying by typically self-conscious ‘wry’ with and ‘irony’ etc. and of course the appalling Nicolas ‘how does that man get work?’ Cage. What makes this worth watching though is the scene where the police are interviewing Nathan Arizona (formerly Huffheinz) the father of the baby taken and ask him to describe the clothes the baby was wearing, upon which they are told that it was wearing it’s damn jammies which were decorated with ‘Yodas and shit’ which is just brilliant.

    Raising Arizona was released in 1987, not 1983.
