O Brother, Where Art Thou?

We watched a recording of O Brother, Where Art Thou?. I know that this movie has received a lot of praise, but I wasn't so impressed. It was a good movie and worthwhile, but I wasn't blown away by it.

Set in the depression, this made a nice cross between music and comedy. I think George Clooney always does a good job at coming across as charming and his role really plays to his strengths. The plot of the movie is based on Homer's Odyssey. If I was more familiar with the Odyssey, I might have derived more pleasure from the movie, but I only know it well enough to recognized the obvious allusions like the Cyclops and the sirens.

On my scale of 1-100, I would give it a 73.
