Oh Clooney Where Art Thou?

Five reasons why the new Coen Brother's film might hit the spot

  1. The trailer is particularly dark and boring enough to suggest that this is not a film they are hoping to be commercially successful. Call that the Rule of Fargo.
  2. Neither Tom Hanks, George Clooney nor Catherine Zeta Jones star in it. Call that the Rule of John Goodman.
  3. There is an no good bad man with strange hair. Call that the Rule of Bernie Bernbaum.
  4. The title of the film will put popcorn lovers off when queuing at the multiplex. Call that the Rule of The Hudsucker Proxy.
  5. There seems to be a pleasingly high use of Stetsons. Call that the Rule of Sam Elliott.

You got the wrong John Goodman clip - the Shomer Shabbat speech is a classic.

However an excellent choice of film, one of the funniest movies ever made.

Good call JP
