Following their oscar winning flick, 'No Country for old men', the Coen brothers made this lighter comedy. First of all, there was a really top cast (George Clooney, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton, Richard Jenkins, J.K. Simmons) and they were all pretty good. I must say, even though the premise sounded really awesome, the end-result was pretty funny but nothing more th... read more

Brilliant dark comedy! exceptional acting by the always wonderful Malkovich. A story of how small scale plans evolve into an unrecognizable mess. Very entertaining and ingtriguing the whole way trough. Great cast and evan greater caracters. most frequently used line was probably "what the fuck", but always in good humour and carefully placed. Fucking awesome!

"November 28 I decided to catch up with the Coen Brothers by watching this. I thought that this was a good movie that was dark and was funny. I knew Brad Pitt died in the movie, but thankfully I forgot about it before I saw it."

A Complete review of the Coen Brothers' work (17 movies items)

" Cast : George Clooney, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton, Richard Jenkins, J.K. Simmons What was it about? A disk containing the memoirs of a CIA agent ends up in the hands of two unscrupulous gym employees who attempt to sell it. My two cents: It is obviously a minor effort for the Coen brothers but it is probably why I actually enjoyed it. The story is pretty stupid but there are some hilarious moments (My favorite are the scenes involving J.K. Simm"
