Upon his release from a mental hospital, Anthony Adams (Luke Wilson) and far less-sane friend Dignan (Owen Wilson) set on out on Dignan’s hair-brained 75 year long robbery plan.

Directed by Wes Anderson and written by Anderson and Owen, Bottle Rocket is the movie that made Wes and Owen mainstream names.

I have always bee a fan of the “bumbling criminal” type of movies and Dignan fits this mold perfectly.


Bottle Rocket is the beginning  for Wes Anderson and if you’re a fan of his other movies (Rushmore, The Royal TenenbaumsThe Life Aquatic with Steve ZissouThe Darjeeling Limited), you will definitely be a fan of Bottle Rocket.

Bottle Rocket has a 7.1/10 rating on IMDB, is 80% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes an has a 60/100 Metascore.
