Overview

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.

Wes Anderson's first film. Definitely not his best, but worth watching for the debuts of the two Wilson brothers and the dynamic Wes Anderson's direction.

This is, hands down, a great, great movie. Owen Wilson has never been better. Luke Wilson is great as Owen's straight-man. This is truly Wes Anderson's masterpiece. The scene with Luke Wilson and his little sister when he first gets out of the loony-bin and meets her at her school is priceless. This was not as well recieved as Anderson's next effort, "Rushmore", and it doesn't pack the punch of the tour-de-force "The Royal Tenenbaums", but has a charm and subtlety that is beyond words.

This movie slipped by most people, but it is a must see for anyone who enjoys off beat comedy with a little romance. It is a great movie that will make you empathize with its characters. You will find yourself cheering for them to get away with the crime.

This movie is a film which should be a cult favorite for anyone with an off-beat sense of humor. Any Production company worth it's salt should buy the rights and have a series of films starring Dignan (Owen Wilson). That character has so much potential and is by far one of the funniest on-screen characters I have ever seen.

This is a great movie with great characters. It is very funny, but only if you have a wierd and offbeat sense of humor. I recomend it to everyone who wants to laugh out loud. It will most definetly become one of your favorite all time movies. Have fun with it!

This first film from Wes Anderson and co-writer Owen Wilson nicely illustrates where these two now much sought after writers came from. I find that Anderson's films work within a world of themselves, each one of them creating an imaginary world where fables and dreams take off with subtle speed, always making us think about ourselves and where we have both come from and are going. Bottle Rocket shows the simplicity of the director and his co-writer, but this simplicity is a good thing. It is more of a gentleness seen in the dialogue (listen for Wilson's off camera lines; they are the best). The two partners build on this gentleness in their sophomore effort, RUSHMORE, a classic in itself. Both movies make you feel the most human of emotions, from self-grandeur, utter sadness, to happiness and inner-peace. With the Royal Tenenbaums now out, Anderson is being compared to many greats, but do not get lost in this. He is his own man, never trying to be Capra or Salinger. He is simply showing us the everyday hope that he feels in his own world, and he does a marvelous job translating this hope for us.
