Bottle Rocket Movie Review Summary

Actors: Owen C. Wilson, Luke Wilson

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Bottle Rocket

Anthony, a nice enough sort, is fresh out of the hospital after a mental breakdown. His crazy friend Dignan cooks up a robbery scheme that includes Anthony and their sorry neighbor Bob, under the guidance of Dignan's former boss, the supposedly legendary crime lord "Mr. Henry," played by James Caan. During the course of these dim bulbs' misadventures, Anthony finds love in the arms of a hotel maid named Inez. Star Owen Wilson and director Wes Anderson co-wrote this offbeat 1996 film, and went on to collaborate on "Rushmore" two years later.
