Movie Synopsis:
Raising Arizona is a Coen brothers cult classic, oozing with quirky humour, an array of equally quirky characters and peppered with uniquely written and delivered hilarious lines. 
H.I Mcdonnough, a repeat offender with a penchant for holding up convenience stores with bulletless shotguns, is constantly bouncing in and out of jail. Falling for recently jilted policewoman Edwina, who always takes his mugshot, he somehow manages to catch her interest and propose. As H.I sets on the path of crime free ex con, the two of them are wed, living in a trailer in desert Arizona trying desperately for a baby. When they discover they cannot conceive, they hatch a plan to steal one of the 'Arizona quints', figuring 'they've got more than they can handle' as mentioned jokingly by the parents themselves on a tv interview. H.I steals the baby who the couple believe to be Nathan Arizona Junior and as he and Edwina try to proceed in life with their new 'family unit', all kinds of challenges, temptations, and situations are put in H.I's path; including the release of his former jail bird pals and their appearance at his trailer one night and having their own plans for Nathan Junior, a disastrous run in with his boss and the allure of a convenience store. The story is interwoven with symbolism, the almost dreamscape sequences of a monster biker bounty hunter, self appointed to track down and rescue Nathan Arizona Senior's son, leading to a somewhat inevitable dramatic showdown and ending within one of H.I's dreams of the future.

THE RAISING ARIZONA RAP!!

My name is H.I but you can call me Hi,
Never had much luck, didn't really try,
Came the fateful day
I met my dessert flower,
Living the good life in our Arizona trailer.

She's a cop I'm a Con, I knew I was beneath her,
Maybe that's why my sperm couldn't reach her,
Or maybe it's because her insides are rocky
practicing hard, but we're just unlucky.

So my honey hatched a plan, you should have seen her,
She'd stop at nothing for a baby, my Edwina,
They had more than they could handle and so we broke in... 
And helped ourselves to an Arizona quin.

Sayin' 'We got ourselves, 
a family here!'
But the baby wasn't ours,
so we lived in fear.
Descended upon by former jailbirds,
With all their heavy questions, we got muddled with our words.

Had a dream, or nightmare, couldn't really tell
Filled with visions of a biker from hell 
I don't know if he was just a weirdo,
Or perhaps a symbol of my alter ego.

Pointing right at me was a great big arrow, 
sayin, 'You will never walk the straight and narrow'
I couldn't resist the allure of the convenience store
Maybe the nuclear family left me wanting more... 
A pantyhose on my head and a cop in my bed
i knew Edwina wanted something else instead...
But you know what they say about best laid plans
Soon the situation was out of our hands....
