A smooth talking recidivist convenience store robber, falls for the police photographer who takes his mug-shot whenever he gets incarcerated. They marry, she gives up police work, he tries to go straight, they plan a family, she finds she can't have children, she sends him out to steal a baby from a couple whose fertility treatment resulted in a spectacular multiple-birth - quintuplets. They get a visit from a couple of his prison chums who tunnelled out, and who formulate their own plans for the baby. Then they get a visit from his employer and his wife and hellish kids, and they also have designs on the baby. Then some sort of spawn of the devil rides in on his Harley to "rescue" the baby. It all sounds very ordinary, doesn't it? Just every day stuff. I should also mention that it's incredibly funny though it may not sound like that from my pale and inadequate description.
I've become a fan of the Coen Bros films over recent months. There's something so twisted, delicious, irresistible and unexpected about their humour that once I'd watched three or four and noticed that all these gems were coming from the same two writers, I started scouring Amazon for more. I highly recommend this film and if you like it, then you'll probably like the others. My favourites are this film, The Hudsucker Proxy, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Big Lebowski and The Man Who Wasn't There. There are a couple that I've yet to see so that list could be shuffled later. If you haven't tried any of these films, do try one and you might find that you too become a Coen addict.
