Bottle Rocket
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Wes Anderson


The debut feature film for director Wes Anderson and actors Luke and Owen Wilson, BOTTLE ROCKET is a kind-hearted yet quirky tale about three friends who fashion themselves into modern-day robbers. After leaving his voluntary confinement in a mental home, Anthony (Luke Wilson) joins his friends Dignan (the film's co-writer, Owen Wilson) and Bob (Robert Musgrave) in a bookstore heist. In need of direction, more so than money, the three guys prove to be polite, but rather inept, criminals. Nevertheless the job is a success, and the trio head out to a remote hotel, planning to lay low until they can return to join a gang of supposed professional criminals lead by the infamous Mr. Henry (James Caan).

Press

"...A sharply funny and touching first feature that tests the bonds of buddyhood..."

- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"...[A] funny, low-budget sleeper....This movie is like a bottle rocket itself: a big bang for the money..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
