“Written with wit and concision and remarkable confidence, Bottle Rocket is a joyride worth taking.” — Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

“Anderson's debut film is a small-scale delight.” —Jon Fortgang, Film4

A delightful and offbeat comedy that follows the misadventures of three eccentric friends with dreams of becoming masterful criminals. Dignan, Anthony, and Bob embark on a series of small-scale heists and unplanned escapades as they navigate the unpredictable world of amateur crime.

Driven by Dignan's grandiose plans and infectious enthusiasm, the trio sets out on a comedic and often bumbling journey that tests their friendship, their aspirations, and their ability to evade the law. Along the way, they encounter quirky characters, unexpected obstacles, and moments of self-discovery that challenge their notions of what it means to be successful.
