4 out of 10 Quins
Philip from Dublin, 09 Sep 2009
One of the Coen Brothers best - and maybe the last film that Nicholas Cage was in where he actually acts.

You either love the Coens or you don't - if you do, then you've probably already seen it....

Off the wall Cage in his earlier years, a real popcorn movie, no major brain cells needed for this one, but great fun. Holly Hunter is perfect in it.

What's it about....
Combining influences from Tex Avery cartoons to Sam Raimi horror movies to 1940s B-movies, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen followed up the stylish film noir of their debut, Blood Simple (1984), with this frantic screwball comedy. H.I. Hi McDonnough (Nicholas Cage) is a philosophical but slightly dim career criminal who has been arrested so often that he gets to know Ed, short for Edwina (Holly Hunter), the officer who takes his mug shots.
