I just saw this movie recently, and I have to say, it's one of the better movies I saw.
The acting is great and seems very realistic and natural. (the car dealer is hilarious to watch, how he responds to stressfull situations)
The story is pretty good but nothing spectacular.
The settings also seem very normal, and there's almost no "over the top" hollywood moments. I don't really know what it is about this movie but I really enjoyed it. Anyone else seen it? :blink:

El Fugitivo

Yeah, I loved it, though I like The Big Lebowski and Miller's Crossing better (two other films by the Coen brothers).

I thought it was more of a bastard-ish decision to say it was based on a "true story". Gimmick or not :angry:

It was a great movie though, especially when Willis's character is shoving his friend through the wood cutter.

i love this movie

i liked it a lot more than the big lebowski

Commercials. I can't figure out whether "x = (George Clooney) + (Coen Brothers) - (Catherine Zeta-Jones)" yields a negative or positive value for x. I know the absolute value is very small.

Great scene, if you like dark humour check out "Harold and Maude".

This is a pretty good description, quote from Amazon user:

"The movie introduces us to Harold. a quiet, if slightly odd young man, so desperate for the attention of his mother, that he stages various "suicides" on a regular basis, just to try and get a reaction from her. We soon learn that the one thing that actually makes Harold happy, is to attend funerals. Which is where, he ends up meeting Maude...a fellow funeral groupie. In contrast, Maude is a soon to be 80 yr old fireball of life and chaos, who counts 'barrowing' total strangers cars, and liberating canaries from pet stores, as hobbies"


I also like the scene where Marcy (not positive of her name) is looking in the snow and bending over, it goes like this:

Police Partner: You see something down there Marcy?
Marcy: No, I just think I'm gonna barf.

The way she said it was great.

Also a great scence, when the salesman (main character) is staying in the motel, and when he hears a knock on the door he trys to stall so he can escape through the window. Very funny.
