Raising Arizona

It's an oldy, but a goody, and probably one of the few films I like Nicholas Cage in.  It's also the second film with Holly Hunter and third with John Goodman I've seen in the last week or so, and that was completely unintentional.

In this film, Nicholas Cage is an ex-con who married a police officer, Holly Hunter.  They can't have their own kids, and aren't able to adopt because of his record, so they decide to kidnap a baby who is a quintuplet recently born to a prominent family in their state.  It seems like it may all work out until the kidnapped baby gets kidnapped by someone else, and Cage and Hunter set off to get the baby back.  All this is going on while a head hunter is trying to find the baby to sell on the black market.  So, without getting too detailed, it gets pretty crazy.
