Synopsis

Amazon.com
Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton, and Cate Blanchett play an unlikely trio of bank robbers in Barry Levinson's outlaw comedy, and this eclectic soundtrack reflects the quirky personalities of their characters. Heard quietly under the film's opening credits, Bob Dylan's "Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum" refers to the bickering duo played by Willis and Thornton, while two '80s hits by Bonnie Tyler ("Holding Out for a Hero" and "Total Eclipse of the Heart") virtually define the neglected housewife-on-the-run played by Blanchett. You'll have to listen closely to hear some of these songs in the film, and two tracks ("Walk on By" and "Wildfire") are exclusive to this release. And while there's not much connective thread from one song to another, their sequencing has an idiosyncratic appeal, just like the film itself. From the soothing effect of Mark Knopfler's "Rudiger" to Five for Fighting's whimsical hero's lament "Superman (It's Not Easy)," these songs convey the same emotional range explored in Christopher Young's "Bandits Suite," a score sampler that closes the disc with instrumental flare. --Jeff Shannon

CD Reviews

But were is MSI!?????
michael dahlquist | Elk Grove, California United States | 07/20/2002

"Yes, this album is very very incomplete. Aside from the great U2 not being there, where the heck is Mindless self indulgence(my favorite band )??? They were played for like a minute and a half when Bruce willis and that other guy walk in on that young guy and that girl making out. It was a song called kill the rock and its great. So i don't know why they didn't put it there!"
Good music, but incomplete album

"I loved the movie, and thoroughly enjoyed all the music mentioned and played. I especially liked the inclusion of the Dylan song and "Twist in My Sobriety."However, I am not sure why the U2 song was not included, as it's played twice in the movie, and is especially significant as the closing song. The only reason I can think of is that the group did not agree to having it on the soundtrack. If that is true, shame on U2 for marring a great set of music! If it was the producers of the album, shame on them for depriving us."
Where's U2?

"Why do soundtracks always seem to be missing one big song or another? In this case, they left out the awesome U2 song "Beautiful Day" and possibly others that I'm not recalling right now. This makes listening to the soundtrack like seeing the Three Stooges without Moe. Maybe people would be less critical if they haven't already seen the movie."
