Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A mildly facetious tone limits Anderson's film to the lightweight, but the collective enthusiasm behind this debut effort still comes through.
Fresh: The title refers to cheap fireworks that fizz before they flame out quietly, and that's what three Southwestern slackers do in this amiable heist movie-cum-road flick.
Fresh: A little deal, this movie is like a bottle rocket itself: a big bang for the money.
Rotten: Bottle Rocket was conceived as a low-budget family affair -- it has more Wilsons than the Beach Boys -- and outside of a few cult-intensive pockets of fandom, that's where it's likely to end up.
I love this film so much and it got Owen and Luke Wilson started out and the charisma between the actors is great! I would recommend this film to anyone who likes wes anderson.
I Love this movie. It is my favorite! Bob Maplethorpe, potential getaway driver.. GO!
90's nostalgia :)
