 The People's Review of O' Brother, Where Art Thou?

Score = "90"
"Well it goes to underscore there is no accounting for paid critical review... Once again the guys geting paid to tell us what is and is not good have missed the boat. This is a fabulous film that deserves to be seen. It is a wonderful, mystical adventure that is full of great acting, excellent music, an absorbing story, and lots of laughs. Ignore the critics and run, don't walk to the theatre to see this film!" 

Score =  "100"
"well cast. fast paced. great comedy but edge of your seat excitement, too. it was really fun and considering how much it costs to go to the movies these days it was money well spent. i loved it and so did the rest of the packed theatre. "

Score =  "100"
 "This is one of my favorite movies of all time I can't hardly believe it. As my wife said ""hey they made a movie for you"

Score = "30"
"This movie is not that funny. It drags much of the time. The only reason I give it a score of 30 is due to the music and the Soggy Bottom Boys final performance (and you can go buy the soundtrack). Clooney's performance was good but this movie is not worth whatever amount you're charged to get in."

Score = "90" "What a breath of fresh air! The Coen brothers did not disappoint....their best since Fargo. Set back in the Thirties, this movie takes you there... excellent cast, soundtrack, photography, full of lighthearted humor!! With the movie theaters full of sexual humor, senseless violence, formula stories and graphic gore, this movie is defintely welcomed! I enjoyed it the second time as much as the first."

Score =  "90" 
"i fell in love with this movie as well as the sound track. the tongue in cheek comedic levity and cinematographical beauty are really a refreshing. the movie leaves you feeling clean and energized."

 "very good movie good acting by everyone definetely superior toany other movie seen in the past 6 months with thwe exception of traffic which was equally good. "

Lance G.
Score =  "80"
 "Worth the price of admission. Liked the settings, the cinematography, the music. Interesting cast. I think Delmar stole the show."  

Score =  "100"
 "This movie was rootbeer thru the nose funny. Clooney, My hats off to you. The two supporting characters should win something for this one. I hope other movie makers will take the que." "

Score = "100"
"Most fun I've had at the movies in years! It was a hoot! Wink at Odyssey great fun. Clooney delicious! I worship and adore the Coens!" 

Score = "100"
"This movie was great. Funny and very nice change of pace. I would pay to see it two more times!" 

Nathanael M 
Score = "90"
"This is one of the best films of the year. The Coens have once again proved themselves masters of their craft. Funny, mesmerizing, witty, insightful, and surreal. Everything I ask for in a movie." 

Score = "100"
"This movie is great. It is a break from the normal Hollywood stuff. This is really a good funny family movie. I laughed all through this movie. I agree, let the critics whine as that is all they know how to do anyway. Every movie they say is good I don't like and everyone movie they don't like I do. That is their job to put down every movie but they forget some of us just like to be entertained sometimes without meeting their approval."

Score = "80"
"Movie well worth watching. Would like to know the name of the girls singing while they are washing clothes at the river. What a terrific sound. Email me at imvyky@aol.com--thank you. (If you email plase put in subject O Brother or I will delete your message.) :-)" 

Score = "NONE" 
"tlaughe till i cried especially the beared singers hought cloonet was great . loved the movie. "

Joe A 
Score = "90"
"The film is done in a surreal manner, somewhere between fantasy and the harshness of life. I liked it. Clooney showed comic ability, and cameos by Holly Hunter, John Goodman and some others were well done. It was a romp through Miss of the 1930, and the songs were great, interspersed, as Jay Leno said, without making it a musical. Some old, some new, some gospel, all great. Forget the critics, they need to find fault to keep their job, I laughed throughout it, and I bet you will too."

Score = "80" 
"This is the best movie I've seen lately. Very charming, very fun and very funny. Enjoy"
