Crime Doesn't Pay - Rotten Tomatoes
The Coen brothers' filmography reads like a modern catalogue of criminal ineptitude, from the goofball (Raising Arizona) to the amateur (Burn After Reading) to the mistaken (Big Lebowski); they even remade one of cinema's great tales of bumbling crooks in The Ladykillers. Among the Coen bunch, arguably the most definitive are the trio of tools behind the events in Fargo. William H. Macy's nervous car salesman couldn't have hired more incompetent criminals than Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare, who double-cross him, then themselves, and end up being caught by a wily small-town cop -- in a compromising and ill thought-out situation with a wood-chipper.
