"wonderful. You know, for kids!"
5 stars

I once played a character in a school play who had to be a fast talking reporter. I used this movie as background.

Sooooooo funny. I love Paul Newman (sure-sure), Tim Robbins (that hair!), and Jennifer Jason-Leigh is both a great actress and hot. ANd Frasier's dad rocks too.
I think it's a near-perfect movie. Sure, it doens't always make total sense, but which Coen movie does? Huh?
Laugh-out loud, love the cameos (Buscemi and the Italian guy and Goodman).
Some people say it didn't work. To them, I say, "yes. it did."

"Mister Leven, thirty-seven." "Thirty-six." "walk down!"
