Creator/TheCoenBrothers' follow-up to ''Film/BloodSimple'', ''Raising Arizona'' begins with harmless criminal H.I. "Hi" [=McDunnough=] (NicolasCage), and police officer Edwina "Ed" (Holly Hunter), meet and fall in love during a series of mug shots. They get married, settle down, and decide they want kids. There's one problem: Ed's infertile. They try adopting, but H.I.'s criminal past prevents this. Then, when all seems hopeless, an opportunity presents itself: Furniture magnate and local celebrity Nathan Arizona (Trey Wilson)'s wife gives birth to quintuplets. An off-handed remark about "having more than they can handle" gives H.I. and Ed the idea to kidnap one of the babies, and raise it as their own. So, H.I. sneaks in, and takes Nathan Jr. (we think), and that's when all hell breaks loose. First, H.I's prison buddies Gale (John Goodman) and Evelle (William Forsythe) break out, and hole up at their place. Then a demonic bounty hunter (Randall "Tex" Cobb) seems to spring from H.I.'s nightmares to pursue him. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And then he punches out his boss.]]

* AllGirlsWantBadBoysAllGirlsWantBadBoys: Although calling HI truly "bad" is a bit of a stretch..



* BadAss: Nathan Arizona proves himself to be quite formidible when confronted by Leonard Smals. He's completely unimpressed by Small's threats and attempts at intimidation. When Smalls shoots his hand out to catch a fly three inches from Arizona's face, he doesn't even blink.

* SophisticatedAsHell: H.I., and everyone in the film, to some degree. An early example of the Coens' fondness for stylization, but RogerEbert found it distracting enough to pan the movie over it.
