Bottle Rocket [DVD] [1996]

The first film from the team that made Rushmore, Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson's Bottle Rocket is a tale of three ne'er-do-well, rookie criminals who never quite overcome their suburban upbringing. With a minimum of special features, all of the DVD's fireworks are in the film itself. The double-sided disc allows for viewing in original 1.85:1 widescreen or full-screen formats. Dolby Surround Sound as well as 5.1 Digital, including a French option, are available; languages and subtitles both include English and Spanish. A scene-by-scene chapter selection is also offered. All in all, this DVD shoots straight, even if the film's cast of bumbling crooks never quite can.

Bottle Rocket
A bright, optimistic caper comedy from first-time director Wes Anderson, Bottle Rocket focuses on a group of young Texans aspiring to become master thieves. Their leader is Dignan (Owen C. Wilson, who also co-wrote the screenplay), an upbeat if naive charmer who convinces his friends Anthony (Wilson's brother Luke Wilson) and Bob Mapplethorpe (Robert Musgrave) to enter the crime business. After their first heist, a bizarrely-executed robbery of a local bookstore, the trio goes on the lam, taking up residence in a border hotel where Anthony falls in love with a maid played by Lumi Cavazos. When the three buddies decide that they need to return to the real world, they hook up with a master con-man (James Caan) who sends them on a daring -- if ill-concieved -- mission. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
