Strange little ditty from the Coen brothers. Funny at times. About ordinary people with feelings of grandiosity. Their lives are way more important than anyone or anything. The usual quirky characters (Brad Pitt is hysterical as a hyperactive personal trainer) and bizarre misunderstandings will make for an enjoyable night out but it’s not something to analyze and treasure like The Big Lebowski, Fargo or last year’s phenom No Country for Old Men. It’s just a bunch of friends (Pitt, George Clooney, Frances MacDormand, Tilda Swinton, John Malkovich) goofing off for a few hours.
