It's funny but I guess this movie just isn't my type of comedy. The cop is really funny and it has a good plot line. I would still recommend it because you may find it amazing

A fantastic dark comedy with some of the best characters to ever grace the big screen. The story and writing is absolutely amazing, as it takes place in the perfect setting. A must-watch for all. Doncha Kno

Fargo is quintessential Coen Brothers. It is a film, populated by slightly off characters, that reveals the depths of human character and behavior, using black comedy and a macabre plotline as a backdrop. The film is sarcastically funny, but doesn't cut back on the occasional brutality of its plot.

"Geez".

"Geez" Frances McDormand stars as Marge Gunderson, a pregnant police chief whose affable, folksy demeanor masks a whip-smart mind. When a pair of motorists are found slain not far from the corpse of a state trooper, Marge begins piecing together a case involving a pair of dopey would-be kidnappers, Carl (Steve Buscemi) and Gaear (Bergman stock player Peter Stormare). They've been hired by Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), a car salesman under the thumb of his wealthy, overbearing boss and father-in-law, Wade (Harve Presnell). Jerry's raised some money illegally through a petty scam he's run on General Motors and he's about to get caught. This movie has one of the best writing in any other films, the dark comedy works in this film by the writing and the actors in the movie. the...

Fargo...still the best

One of those movies you can watch over and over again, and can't help but make your fondness for the Coen brothers' genius grow. William H. Macy makes this movie - if there is a character more believable than this perennial, hapless failure, I would love to hear about who it is. Buscemi and Stormare's misfit chemistry is hard to top in the history of criminal conspirators. Harve Presnall, his daughter and grandson work so perfectly, you can't help but think they are more "Fargo" than actors. And Frances McDormand deserved her Oscar - a pregnant Police Trooper - I dare you to find better. In the end, it's hard to think of a movie with a more bizarre plot that is fully believable up to the now pop culture-esque "I'll throw you in a wood chipper" scene.

A ridiculous anecdote of misdeed in the winter.

Fargo is a trophy of 90's Coen Bros. filmmaking. Admittedly, there are a few pointless scenes and the climax for me is a little underwhelming, but that doesn't give the film a reason to be bad, because every scene is better than the last.

It has the most unusual pair of characters, but for some reason they work well off each other, even if they don't share a scene together. A criminal duo, a terrible (TERRIBLE!) husband, pregnant police chief, where else do you see that?
Frances McDormand deserved her Oscar here, without a doubt. She is funny, she is convincing, she basically defines a woman from the north with her sing-song accent and jolly expressions. Priceless.

The music by Carter Burwell feels majestic. It's like you're being wrapped in a warm blanket.
Even the direction that...
