Satisfying Homage to Screwball Comedy

For fans of the screwball comedy era of film, this Coen Brothers film is an energetic joy. It contains the usual off the wall Coen Bros. characters, but the madcap pace is amped up and the in depth and structured characters fall by the wayside. In another directing team's hands, this could be a recipe for disaster, but the Coens know the genre they are paying homage to and craft a film that is funny, satisfying, and never boring.
