Overview
An offbeat crime caper that turns convention on its head, BOTTLE ROCKET is "the sort of endearingly oddball project that will be remembered for years to come... for the formidable talent it introduces to the world" (Michael Medved, New York Post).

Newcomer Owen Wilson, in a star-making performance, co-wrote the screenplay about three best friends who attempt to escape their suburban boredom through a life of crime. But these bickering, bumbling thieves are no match for the local 'godfather' (James Caan) who leads them into the biggest heist of their careers. Co-starring Luke Wilson and Bob Musgrave in their film debuts, BOTTLE ROCKET is the cult comedy hit that "will shoot to the top of your favorite film list" (Stephen Sabian, Details Magazine).
