||Homer in Mississippi?|
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.
By Blake (Brandon,MS)
||Homer's Odyssey in the 21st century|
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.
By a reviewer (Hayward, CA)
||O Brother, What A Great Movie !!!|
When I rented this movie from the local video shop, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Before I returned the video, I had watched it four times! What a hoot! It helped that I'm familiar with much of the music in the movie and could relate the characters to their counterparts in Homer's "Oddysey".
By a reviewer (Shrewsbury PA)
||They came so close...|
To making this a great movie. The music is great, the acting is superb, but the story was at times just too hard to piece together.
By a reviewer (Huntsville, AK)
||Great CD, great movie!|
This is an outstanding cross-section of American "roots" music which dovetailed perfectly with the hilarious movie it is married to.

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.
