"So, you guys like to tell jokes, huh? Giggling and laughing like a bunch of young broads sitting in a schoolyard. Well, let me tell a joke. Five guys, sitting in a bullpen in San Quentin, all wondering how the f*ck they got there."

That quote was from Lawrence Tierney's character Joe in Quentin Tarantino's big-screen directorial debut, "Reservoir Dogs." Unfortunately for the group of guys Joe was talking to, most of them found themselves in a place far worse than prison at the end of the movie. Lucky for us, the film didn't follow the same path; two decades after its release, it has gone on to become an influential cult classic and one of Tarantino's finest works.

Granted, it wasn't popular at the start: When "Reservoir Dogs" first debuted in theaters twenty years ago (on October 23, 1992), the movie failed to make a huge splash with audiences, and eventually developed fans years down the road. The film follows a group of robbers with colorful code names (Mr. Pink, Mr. White, Mr. Blonde, Mr. Orange and Mr. Brown and Mr. Blue) who plan a jewelry heist that ends up going awry.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of "Reservoir Dogs," let's take a look back at the cast, which includes Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, and more.
