About the movie

image8.1/10 image 94/100

Jerry, a small-town Minnesota car salesman is bursting at the seams with debt... but he's got a plan. He's going to hire two thugs to kidnap his wife in a scheme to collect a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. It's going to be a snap and nobody's going to get hurt... until people start dying. Enter Police Chief Marge, a coffee-drinking, parka-wearing - and extremely pregnant - investigator who'll stop at nothing to get her man. And if you think her small-time investigative skills will give the crooks a run for their ransom... you betcha!

I enjoyed the television series version, but I didn't love it the way I did when I saw the original. Still, a great story, smart character development, and true to mystery form.

I love comedy crime dramas but this one just wasn't for me tho . I wanted to check it out for all the good reviews but I was bored out of my mind watching this.

“Would it... kill you to say something?” Not at all. I will start off by saying that this movie is truly one of the greatest cinematic marvels of the 20th century, and has become one of my favorite films of all time. Its masterful writing, acting, directing, and scoring puts it (in this reviewer’s opinion) far and above most of the films brought to the big screen in the 1990s. Often dark and surreal in its humor, the legendary directing duo that is Joel and Ethan Cohen give us Hollywood’s view of middle America and the crazy cast of characters (literally) that dwell there, including the main character Minnesota car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (portrayed wonderfully by William H. Macy), the hilarious Carl Showalter (played by the marvelous Steve Buscemi), Gaear Grimsrud (played by Peter Stormare), and Wade Gustafson (played by Harve Presnell). The main highlight (in terms of acting) in my opinion is the remarkable acting prowess of the lovely and wonderfully talented Mrs. Frances McDormand (portraying police officer Marge Gunderson), who won the 1997 Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Speaking of awards, the Cohen won the 1997 Academy Award for Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen. The film was Oscar- nominated for Best Picture at the aforementioned 1997 Academy Awards, upon numerous other awards. And rightfully so. If you haven’t seen this film or haven’t seen it in a while, I would highly recommend giving it a watch. You won’t regret it. Not at all.
