A classic film from the Coen brothers, Raising Arizona features an excellent DVD transfer but not much more. Top cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld, who later directed Get Shorty and Wild Wild West, photographed this film and its transfer would make him proud. The widescreen 1:85 sparkles with color saturation and even the smallest background detail stands out to enhance the humor. Joel and Ethan Coen are known for making great quirky films and for never including commentary or interviews on their discs. They stay true to form here. Extras-wise, the disc doesn't offer much, except for a theatrical trailer, three TV spots, and trailers for their other films, Miller's Crossing and Barton Fink. Dolby Surround is available in English and French languages. Since the film has such a fanatical following, even without extras the awesome transfer will be enough for many fans to add this to their collection.

One my favorite comedies. There is not much funny today but the Coen bothers & the cast, Nicholas Cage, Holly Hunter & the rest the rest hit the nail on the head. I have enjoyed all of the Coen brothers films beginning with Blood Simple (unfunny). I hope they are still active,
The Cohen brothers most underrated film! I’m a huge fan of the duo while this isn’t my favorite of their works ( Fargo is the best in my opinion) but it is still great. Nic cage is excellent in this film so is everyone else. Raising Arizona is a wild and wacky ride that I would recommend to anyone
