Reviews
Mine: Good cast does not quite bring off this inventive story. Worth seeing for Tim Robbins and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The Coen Brothers least successful effort.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A country bumpkin arrives in the Big City and becomes the unwitting pawn in a scheme to ruin a thriving corporation. The Coen brothers' most extravagant creation to date, an eye-popping 50s fantasy of big business gone berserk, with Robbins absolutely perfect as the wide-eyed patsy who miraculously rises to the top. Newman is a crafty villain, and Leigh is fun (if a bit one-note) as a fast-talking, Kate Hepburn-ish reporter. Written by Ethan and Joel Coen with Sam Raimi; the Coens rival Fellini in the selection of unusual faces to populate their films.
