Few of the Coen Brothers' films spike the vein of pure pleasure as easily. It's an irresistibly loquacious, unpredictably riotous comedy that dares you to keep up with its daffiness and doesn't give a damn whether you get left behind.

An impressive technical achievement--the period New York sets are to die for -- and its version of the invention of the hula-hoop is a comic highlight.

A minor work, but confirmation of the Coens' position among America's most ambitious, able and exciting film-makers.

Criminally overlooked and sinfully wonderful Coen brothers comedy. Jennifer Jason Leigh is just flawless here.

[The Coens'] inventive style and the over-the-top performances from Robbins and Newman make this a feast for the eyes and a barrel of laughs.

Movies are, after all, about fakery; so is the story of Norville's rise and fall and redemption.

Worth seeing for its quirky invention, but it's hard not to wish that so much talent could come with a little more heart.
