Three Best Friends Who Attempt To Escape Their Surburan Boredomthrough A Life Of Crime. But These Bickering, Bumbling Thievesare No Match For The Local Godfather Who Leads Them Into Thebiggest Heist Of Thier Careers.
This quietly daffy comedy should have been an indie hit, but ended up ignored by audiences. Too bad; it's a wonderfully sustained caper movie about friends whose career choice is all wrong. Low-key Anthony (Luke Wilson) and high-strung Dignan (Owen C. Wilson--the two actors are brothers) are brought into a life of crime by Dignan's ambition to be a small-time thief. After a few amusingly laid-back trial burglaries, they (and a third buddy) find themselves over their heads when they hook up with an experienced crime boss (James Caan). Because this movie is so relentlessly deadpan, you really have to be dialed in to its brand of humor--but once there, Bottle Rocket shoots off plenty of sparks. Above all, Owen Wilson's portrayal of Dignan is a terrifically original comic creation; Dignan is so sincerely focused on his goals that he can't see how completely absurd his ideas are. Owen Wilson, who went on to supply similarly knuckle-headed performances in Armageddon and Permanent Midnight, wrote the screenplay with director Wes Anderson. --Robert Horton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Le dvd était en parfait état, tel que décrit. Je suis très satisfaite. Il est arrivé rapidement et était très bien emballé.Published on Dec 21 2012 by joannie lavoie
A rambling, oddball shaggy dog story, but it packs some real emotion and laughs along the way. Terrific understated
performances, and good use of images and music. Read more
This movie is greatness. Two rules: Don't watch it alone or only one time.

Taking a trip into Wes Anderson's head is like going into a parallel universe where most things are the same, but the nature of reality is just slightly warped. Read morePublished on March 31 2004 by E. A Solinas
I might as well not even try to give 'Bottle Rocket' a fair and balanced review because Owen Wilson is all I can talk about when it comes to this movie. Read morePublished on March 11 2004 by Volpe
I had no idea what I was getting in to when I purchased this DVD prior to viewing (as I often do); I was just excited to find another movie with both the talented Wilson brothers. Read morePublished on Feb. 29 2004 by "mijita24"
