If you haven't seen this movie, SHAME ON YOU.When Ed, the darlin' police booker meet H.I. McDonaugh, one of the cutest repeat offenders around, its love. Well, after 5 bookings that is. When H.I. gets out of the slammer, he decides to propose to the the petite Ed and they each give up their careers, cop and con, to be wed in holy matrimony. All is well in their dusty corner of Arizona, until the baby boom hits home. Ed and H.I. try and try, and when the Doc tells Ed she can't carry a baby, their loving relationship is in a downward spiral. They can't adopt because of H.I.'s "checkered past." Ed obsesses about children, her depression gets deeper and deeper. Once the immaculate housekeeper, she can't keep their trailer straight. One night, H.I. and Ed are watching TV. The famous salesman Nathan Arizona and his wife have just had quintuplets. With that many babies, Ed reasons, they wouldn't miss just one. So Ed and H.I. set out to claim a baby for their own. And this is not even the first 15 minutes. With outstanding performances by Holly Hunter and Nic Cage, Raising Arizona is perhaps one of the funniest movies ever made and one of the best the Coen Brothers produced. There are so many stand out performances in Arizona, from John Goodman to one of my personal favorites, Frances McDormand. Its an ensemble piece that really works. I believe the first 15 minutes of this movie is one of the most hilarious ever put on film. I dare you to watch it and NOT quote from it for days, weeks, YEARS.Drop dead hysterical movie, marvelous performances from a great cast.
