Synopsis / Plot
The suave, irresistible Joe (Bruce Willis) and his hypochondriac partner Terry (Billy Bob Thornton) have escaped from prison. Cutting a swath from Oregon through California, these fugitives rob banks in order to finance their scheme for a new -- and somewhat legitimate -- life south of the Border. In their wake, they leave a trail of chaos, disguises, wrecked automobiles -- and an adoring public. Their operation is running smoothly until an unexpected run-in with Kate (Cate Blanchett), who is drawn to the thieves as a way to escape her ordinary life. Together Joe and Terry are the most successful bank robbers in U.S. history, and, to Kate, they also make the perfect man.

2001: Screen Actors Guild (SAG): Nominated for Best Sup. Actress (Blanchett)
Critics' reviews
  • "An amusing tale of larceny triumphant, Bandits is an entertainment with a rogue's imagination"
  • "A funny, character-driven action comedy with three disparate stars -- who have great chemistry together"
