O Brother Where Art Thou?

The Coen Brothers come out with this comedy and it is to no surprise that it's absolutely whacked. George Clooney stars as an escaped inmate who tries to repair his relationship with his divorced wife. The plot which is based on Homer's The Odyssey is uneven, but there are moments that are wonderfully hilarious! It's certainly not the best of the Coen Brother's flicks that include "Raising Arizona" and "Fargo," but it's a great movie for their fans. An interesting and ultimately satisfying musical score!
