5 Most Memorable Nicolas Cage Performances Raising Arizona
Raising Arizona (1987): One of the Coen brothers' earliest, most playful and visually inventive films features a deliriously nutso starring performance from Cage. Hi McDunnough is a loser and ex-con who seemingly can do no right, but he finds a way to make his wife Edwina (Holly Hunter) happy when he steals a baby for her from furniture tycoon Nathan Arizona, the father of quintuplets. Like "Moonstruck," "Raising Arizona" allows Cage to tap into his unique brand of off-kilter, romantic goofiness. He's a grubby, lovable cartoon character.
