Quentin Tarantino - who won an Oscar with screenwriting partner Roger Avary - tells three crime stories in one in an unbeatable, out-of-sync compendium overflowing with shocks, laughs and endlessly quotable dialogue. Hitmen John Travolta and Samuel L Jackson riff on fast food and foot massages while cleaning up after their fearsome boss (Ving Rhames) and looking after his coke-snorting wife (Uma Thurman). Boxer Bruce Willis angers the same crimelord before they both find themselves in the clutches of a deviant cop. And a criminal couple (Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer) have their hold-up held up. Meanwhile, Willis' dad (Christopher Walken) has a tale to tell about a gold watch. A groovy, bloody, Oscar-winning Big Kahuna burger. With cheese.
