I was never crazy about the ending of Raising Arizona, but while I'm daydreaming ...

It makes me smile to think that in 70 years my nieces will have these same smiles, which will be captured in pictures much like this one. Side by side. Sisters and friends. With nieces, nephews, daughters, sons, and grandchildren of their very own. (The purple pajamas are optional, but if the mood strikes them, why not?)


  1. The end of Raising Arizona invariably makes tears well up in my eyes.

  2. I love the rest of the movie, but the ending never quite worked for me. Actually, starting with the return of Nathan Jr. to the Arizona household, the movie loses steam. It's forgivable, though, considering the high quality of every other scene. And I'm probably in the minority anyway.
