    The Coens at their most underrated; a screwball comedy worthy of McCarey, Hawks, and Wilder. Features some of their strongest playfulness with tropes, this one eagerly attacking the cynical nature of the very structure of most romantic comedies.

    If this is the Coens at their worst then just give them a place in the Pantheon already.

    -"That Rob Reiner guy should act more."

    -Never thought I'd hear a Foo Fighters song in a Scorsese film, nevermind one that actually really fits.

    -It'll be interesting to see how the mass public reacts to…
