||Homer's Odyssey in the 21st century|
O Brother, Where Art Thou? DVD for sale This is a wonderful adaption of the Odyssey to America's depressed South, replete with a blind prophet, sirens, cyclops and treasures found then lost.

||Sequel to Sullivan's Travels|
O Brother, Where Art Thou? movie The film claims to be based on the Odyssey, and it is, but it is so much more heavily based on Sullivan's Travels, that it could in fact, be considered to be the sequel. Both films are really good.

||They came so close...|
O Brother, Where Art Thou? video To making this a great movie. O Brother, Where Art Thou? film The music is great, the acting is superb, but the story was at times just too hard to piece together. The men who wrote this movie are trying to re-tell Homer's "Odyssey" from a 1937 Mississippi point of view... good idea, but came up short of the potential this movie had to be a classic.

||Homer in Mississippi?|
O Brother, Where Art Thou? review I thought it was a great idea to put Homer's story in a Mississippi setting. Even if you don't think this movie is funny you still have to admit that it's entertaining. The unique characters and beautiful music help add to this amazing adventure.

||Great CD, great movie!|
O Brother, Where Art Thou? DVD for sale This is an outstanding cross-section of American "roots" music which dovetailed perfectly with the hilarious movie it is married to. Kudos to T-Bone Burnett for a soundtrack that should win an Oscar hands-down.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? DVD Features
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Disenchanted with the daily drudge of crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney, THE PERFECT STORM) busts loose. Except he's still shackled to his own chain-mates from the chain gang -- bad-tempered Pete (John Turturro, SUMMER OF SAM), and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson, HAMLET). With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain -- before it's lost forever in a flood -- the three embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this hilarious offbeat road picture. Populated with strange characters, including a blind prophet, sexy sirens, and a one-eyed Bible salesman (John Goodman, COYOTE UGLY), it's an odyssey filled with chases, close calls, near misses, and betrayal that will leave you laughing at every outrageous and surprising twist and turn.
