Wes Anderson is known for his whimsical stories, perfect color coordination and collaborating with the same actors. Take Bill Murray, who acted all of Wes Andersons feature films, except for the debut. Owen Wilson is also featured in almost every Anderson movie, with Moonrise kingdom and Rushmore being the only exceptions.
Anderson and Wilson actually met at the University of Texas. The two, now very famous, roommates started to work on the script for Bottle Rocket. The movie had the worst test screening in the history of Columbia pictures and failed spectacularly at the box office. Owen Wilson almost joined the army, thinking he had no future in acting. However, there was one very prominent, very positive critique: Martin Scorsese called Bottle Rocket one of his top ten favorite films from the 90s.
