Goofs

  • The room Dignan and the boys stay in is a non-smoking room, there is a big white sign on the door. After Dignan is beaten up and they're back in the room, Inez leaves and you see the sign on the door. Anthony leaves a second later, and the sign is gone.

Quotes

    • Dignan: What a lemon! One minute it's running like a top, and the next it's broken down on the side of the road. And I can't fix a car like this, because I don't have the tools! And even if I did have the tools I don't know if I could fix a car like this!

This is a movie about friendship, about foolhardy endeavors that get your adrenaline going and make you feel life buzzing in your toes. Written with wit and concision and remarkable confidence, Bottle Rocket is a joyride worth taking.

It's a cool breeze of a comedy, with a slant on things that's dark but compassionate. Watching Bottle Rocket doesn't just make you laugh. It makes you smile between the laughs, think beneath the smiles.
