In this exclusive 20th Century Fox Double Feature, you will get two of the greatest crime comedies of the last 20 years! Includes the critically-acclaimed and criminally hilarious Raising Arizona and Fargo, both directed by the crazed Coen Brothers!

Raising Arizona: Nicholas Cage, Holly Hunter and John Goodman star in Ethan and Joel Coen's acclaimed screwball love story filled with mad chases, unexpected plot twists and wild pyrotechnics. Vowing to go straight, a convenience store bandit (Cage) proposes marriage to the police department's photographer (Hunter). All is wedded bliss until they discover she's unable to get pregnant and are turned down by every adoption agency in town. It doesn't take long before they realize the only solution is to kidnap one of the town's celebrated quintuplets and hit the road! Nominated for seven Oscars including Best Picture, and winnner of two (Actress and Original Screenplay), this "darkly amusing" (Los Angeles Times) thriller about an unusual kidnapping plot unravels in the Midwest like never before.

Fargo: Fargo combines a "first-rate cast" (Variety) with "a dazzling mix of mirth and malice" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) into an enthralling film that's "in a class by itself" (The Boston Globe). Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), a saccharine-sweet car salesman in a small Minnesota town, is bursting at the seams with debt...but he's got a plan. He's gonna hire two thugs (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife in a scheme to collect a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. It's gonna be a snap and nobody's gonna get hurt. But as soon as the bumbling criminals get into town and casually off three locals, poor Jerry's plan goes awry. Enter Police Chief Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand), a coffee-drinking, parka-wearing--and extremely pregnant--investigator who'll stop at nothing to get her man. And if you think her small-time investigative skills will give the crooks a run for their ransom...you betcha!

"[Raising] One of the most inventive, original, absolutely wacko comedies in years.  Joel Siegel, Good Morning America
"[Fargo] Two thumbs up, way up!  Siskel & Ebert
"[Fargo] ...first-rate cast...   Variety
"[Raising] Wild, surreal and hilarious.  VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever

Editor's Note
The Coen Brothers wrap two different tales of kidnapping-gone-wrong in their inimitably eccentric style in this double feature of two of their very best films: the madcap comic romp RAISING ARIZONA (1987), and the pitch-black dramedy FARGO (1996). See individual titles for plot details.

Professional Reviews

Variety 7 of 10
[Raising] Pic is the Coen Brothers' twisted view of family rearing in the American heartlands and as full of quirky humor and off-the-wall situations as their debut effort, Blood Simple. The film captures the surrealism of everyday life. Characters are so strange here that they seem to have stepped out of late-night television, tabloid newspapers, talk radio and a vivid imagination...Loosely structured around a voice-over narration by Cage, Raising Arizona is as leisurely and disconnected as Blood Simple was taut and economical. While film is filled with many splendid touches and plenty of yocks, it often doesn't hold together as a coherent story...While Cage and Hunter are fine as the couple at sea in the desert, pic sports at least one outstanding performance from John Goodman as the con brother who wants a family too.

ReelViews 8 of 10
[Fargo] Fargo takes the usual "caper gone wrong" storyline and applies a new twist. Based on a supposed series of "true events" from 1987 (a tongue-in-cheek claim made by a screen caption), the film examines what can happen when the police and criminals are equally dim-witted. The product of the Coen brothers' fertile (and twisted) minds, Fargo represents one of their least ambitious screenplays to date. Even so, the finished product still bears several of their unmistakable trademarks, including atypical humor and an unmistakable visual flair...It's easy to admire what the Coens are trying to do in Fargo, but more difficult to actually like the film. The absence of viable characters limits any dramatic impact, making this more of a laid back, lightly entertaining experience than a fully immersive one. - James Berardinelli
