"They're not really criminals, but everyone's got to have a dream."

Bottle Rocket is Wes Anderson's first movie, a small quirky comedy starring then unknown brothers Luke and Owen Wilson, who also co-wrote the script. Anthony (Luke Wilson) has been in a mental hospital suffering from what he terms 'exhaustion', upon his release his charming pal Dingan (Owen Wilson) presents him with a ridiculously elaborate plan involving multiple small robberies. Anthony still feels adrift, and Dingan can barely explain his complex plot, but they still manage to recruit Bob (Robert Musgrave) as their getaway driver. They proceed to steal a small amount of cash and use it to hide out at a remote motel near the border.

While at the motel Anthony falls in love with a beautiful maid named Inez (Lumi Camazos) even though she speaks no English and he can't speak Spanish. Complications ensue as the boys continue trying to pursue a life of crime and eventually meet up with Mr. Henry (James Caan) an eccentric but experienced con man.
