I love most Coen brothers' movies, but this is my least favorite of their films. Only one of the stories ends happily. Other than that one, poetic justice is lacking. One of the other stories does have a deliciously twisted sort of irony.
The movie didn't have a message, but it kept my attention. It's a metamorphosis-themed plot, which is obvious from the trailer. The special effects were good. The young woman, going through puberty, was spiraling down a dark path, but, in the end, it didn't really matter.
I thought it was hilarious! I found this movie funnier than both Borat and Bruno. His comedy style reminds me of early Woody Allen, although much lewder.
The plot was a mess, not believable and somewhat confusing. But the movie was generally entertaining.
I love this movie. I watched it for, probably, the sixth or seventh time a few days ago. I still laughed all the way through it. I read that Billy Wilder, the co-writer and director, was disappointed with the movie, saying that he was straightjacketed by censorship rules of the fifties. He said that, without a sexual affair, there's nothing. I totally disagree. Richard Sherman would have lost the sympathy of the audience had he cheated on his wife. The fact that, after his speech on how they shouldn't try to fight their attraction to each other, he was taken aback when the girl suggested she stay overnight, showed his ambivalence. He still loved his wife. If he had acted, I would have lost my warm, fuzzy feeling for this film.
