Natural Born Killers (1994)

This is a moderate movie. Mickey (Woody Harrelson) and Mallory (Juliette Lewis) are an unofficially married couple who gain notoriety by driving from one town to another shooting as many people as they can. After being bitten by rattlesnakes, they are arrested while robbing a pharmacy. When they have been in prison for a year, a popular television host (Robert Downey, Jr.) is given the chance to interview Mickey about their crimes. During a live broadcast Mickey grabs a gun and starts shooting at everyone in the room. At the same time, a riot erupts in the recreation room giving the couple an opportunity to reunite.

Filming locations included the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge in New Mexico and Stateville Correctional Center in Illinois. Coca-Cola approved the use of the polar bear ad, without knowing what the film was about. The film was banned in Ireland. In Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Bill mentions that the bride is a "natural born killer".
