Two criminals kidnap the wrong woman.
WHY WE PICKED IT: This densely plotted bloodfest became a cult classic for its quick, quotable dialogue and blatant subversion of conventional heroism.
Two small-time thugs get more than they bargained for when they decide to kidnap a surrogate mother. Anchored by great performances, this was the directorial debut of Christopher McQuarrie, who first struck fame as the writer of 'The Usual Suspects.'
