O Brother, Where Art Thou? : 4 of 5
This is a really enjoyable film with a fun story (based loosely on The Odyssey) that is touching and goofy at the same time. George Clooney does an excellent job in the lead role (George is just so cool - if I could snap my fingers and be someone, it would probably be George Clooney), and I could even stand Holly Hunter's voice for a few lines. It was fun trying to find the Homer references - the cyclops and the siren were obvious, but there really isn't much more beyond that (besides coming home to his wife beset by suitors). The music is very cool - not my usual taste, but it works perfectly in the film. I guess the main thing I enjoyed was that George actually becomes a hero - everyone in the audience finds themselves rooting for him and his dreams.
