It may try to be more than it is and deceive the audience by seeming 'weird,' but it's great to look at.

Tonally, it's the silliest Coen Brothers movie I've ever seen, but something about that retelling Homer's Odyssey makes it all the more satisfying, as if we dare to blasphemize a classic and get a failing grade in English class.

O Brother Where Art Thou? is one of the earliest examples of the Coen Brothers' practicing of what I like to call "cinematic masturbation." Initially performed by Godard with Pierrot Le Fou, this is when a director over-stylizes the material and "masturbates" to their own form. However, for what it does do right: good humor and brilliant cinematography as usual, I enjoy it on a purely guilty level.

Grade - D+
A rather poor entry from the Coen's here. It looks great, and has some good performances, but other than that the movie feels like a flat, boring, one note song that I'd rather not listen to again.

This movie is stupid and goofy and is nothing in comparison to The Big Lebowski. However, for some reason this movie has a charm on me and this goes down as probably one of my favorite movies ever.

Aiemmin olin antanut tälle peräti neljä tähteä, ja muistalen kyllä tykänneeni siitä. Nyt nukahdin. Mutta ehkä vika ei ollut leffassa vaan työviikossa...

The Coen Brothers demonstrate their wide-ranging abilities in this cultural touchstone.

Very good movie. Tonally, the Coen brothers strike gold again with a wacky comedy full of smart humor, clever satire and great music that is led by great performances from its three leads. The only issue is its pacing is a little slow in multiple moments, drawing away from the great story.

It takes a lot for the Coen Bros to make a movie that isn't entertaining. 'O Brother Where Art Thou?' is engaging at times but it's very hit or miss. The cast is having fun which isn't unusual for a Coen flick, but it just didn't make me laugh and there were instances I was bored. Worthwhile for the performances and the supporting cast but we have come to expect better from Coen and Company. Final Score 5.7 of 10.

Overlooked today in favor of its folk soundtrack, "O Brother" stands out among the Coen bros films that tell a deep story with important themes, yet don't take themselves too seriously. O Brother takes The Odyssey and transports it to Depression-era Mississippi, and it will be remembered for clever dialog that's fitting for the time period. The use of repetition will be amusing for many, but annoying to other moviegoers.

O Brother, Where Art Thou is a magical experience who's mediocre ending can be forgiven for the wonderful goofiness the rest of it brings.
