Forgive me if this thread exists. I searched and only found subjects in the disc forums.
Joel and Ethan Coen are national treasures. Few films have brought me more lasting enjoyment than this. Various scenes will inevitably pop into my head at random moments and make me smile. I can't imagine many folks here haven't seen this, but if not, get on that ASAP. Because of that, I'm not going to unpack the plot much at all. Probably the most hilarious case of mistaken identity committed to film. The cast cannot be improved upon.
You know how when you're watching a TV show or movie, and you think of what would have been a much better line? That never happened while watching this. I think that speaks to the Coen Bros. skill and attention to detail. Nothing is a happy accident. It is all the result of hard work and caring deeply about the craft, and, as a fan of the movies, I appreciate the heck out of that.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, uh, your opinion, man."
"You said it, man. Nobody f**ks with the Jesus."

"Hey, careful, man, there's a beverage here!"
