    Although some of its parts are brilliantly executed and played by a terrific cast, the result is scattered, overamplified and unsatisfying. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    It's a pinball arcade of a flick -- the Coens invent a bunch of wonderfully flaky characters, stick them into a Plexiglas narrative, and let them bounce off each other. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    It's paved with delightfully irregular and unanticipated bits of business that stimulate the viewer to stay fully alert, while renewing our faith in the sheer joy of watching movies. show more

    One Of The Worst Commercial Movies With Explicit Language and Without Any Comedy. The Boring Thing In It Is The Excessive Use Of Vulgar Language without any story. If You wanna waste your time and you love bad language like: I suck your c...k for 1000$,then see this Bad Movie!.
