One of the Coen brothers earliest films, Raising Arizona remains, perhaps, the duo’s wildest. Nicholas Cage plays Hi McDunnough, a thoroughly incompetent robber who marries Holly Hunter’s Ed, a police officer. With the couple, having difficulty conceiving a child, Hi decides that a wealthy family with quintuplets has more than they need of just about everything, and so a kidnapping seems to be in order. As messed up as that is, it’s hard not to root for Ed and Hi and their wild hijinks—but the kind of love that justifies a kidnapping is, perhaps, a tiny bit unhealthy.
