My second favorite Coen Brothers movie, this dark comedy is hilarious
A funny movie about serious matters. The Coen bros excel at making this type of film. Not their best effort, but still really entertaining.
Good comedy drama movie, good story and great characters and performances. Worth watching
Very silly but fun. Pitt is an adorable idiot in this movie, one of his best performances. McDormand looks like a blonde Wonka on cocaine.
it's not the best Coen bros film but its got a quirky feel to it. there are some subtle comedy highlights and Clooney is fab!!
Cohen Bros and a great cast make this a lively romp.
Great. Anything done by Coen brothers is at least worth a watch
A fantastic dark comedy film from the Coen brothers with hilarious, shocking scenes and a gripping twisty story, phenomenal performances
Might be the funniest Coens movie, certainly one of the most overlooked. Brad Pitt in this movie is a treasure
