Sprung from a chain gang and trying to reach Everett’s home to recover the buried loot of a bank heist they are confronted by a series of strange characters–among them sirens, a cyclops, bank robber George “Baby Face” Nelson (very annoyed by that nickname), a campaigning governor and his opponent, a KKK lynch mob, and a blind prophet who warns the trio that “the treasure you seek shall not be the treasure you find.”
Plot: In the deep south during the 1930s, three escaped convicts search for hidden treasure while a relentless lawman pursues them. On their journey they come across many comical characters and incredible situations. Based upon Homer’s ‘Odyssey’.

Hillbilly hi-jinks. Bluegrass music. Laugh out loud funny!
The Coen Brothers have done it again. Three depression era convicts(George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson)escape a Mississippi chain gang and head off in search of buried treasure that will fund their new lives. Along the way, they sing on the radio and become much sought after stars as well as escapees. Great laughs and a soundtrack that is a lesson/introduction to bluegrass music.
Clooney is outstanding as the fast talking, quick witted Ulysses Everett McGill. Holly Hunter plays his estranged wife. Turturro and Nelson are flawless stumblebums. Also in the cast are John Goodman and Charles Durning.
Dan Tyminksi provides the singing voice for George Clooney on “I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow”, the Soggy Bottom Boys song that serves as a template for the bluegrass laden soundtrack that also features Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, The Whites, John Hartford, The Cox Family and Gillian Welch. Toe tapping, knee slapping fun for the whole family. You’ll be surprised with how relaxed and funny this movie is.
I realize this movie came out 18 years ago, but I wasn’t on IMDb then. Did IMDb even exist? I don’t know. But as I’m sitting in the barbershop right now, this movie is being played on the tv right now, and I’m reminded how much I love this movie. In my opinion, one of the best comedies ever made. I know it’s not for everyone (I have friends who hate it), but it’s a classic to myself and some others I know. Excellent writing and acting.
