Their lawless years are behind them. Their child-rearing years lay ahead...

A bandit that falls in love with a police woman. They want to have a baby but they can't have it or adopt, so they decided to steal a baby from a couple that had 5 twins! Sounds like a good story and it really was! Another great work of The Coen Brothers.
Raising Arizona is a funny story, full of crazy characters but it's also heartwarming and emotional.
Lately I've been discovering some good works of Nicolas Cage, he was very good in this. Holly Hunter was great also and I really enjoyed the small role of Frances McDormand.
