Raising Arizona (1987)

 Rated sort-of R for mild language.

The Coens & the Cage combine to give us Next 100 Project ep # 54. Joel & Ethan have always been great at crime movies and their brand of comedy tends to be a bit oddball. However, just like the filmmakers and their star, Bev & Ryan didn’t fully agree on the ‘Zona. Laugh it up whilst you guzzle some Sparkplug Coffee!

NOTES: The Top 100 Laughs List was released by the AFI in June 2000. There’s Something About Mary was indeed the most-recent release to make the Top 100 Laughs.
