In this, another great, or at least near great, Coen Brothers film, we find ourselves in the midst of gangster wars, ala the 1930s, with modern tools. Tom (Gabriel Byrne) is an apparently heartless gangster who is loyal to kingpin Leo (Albert Finney) and is now caught up in a gang war. The prize: control of the city. Lots of black humor, extreme violence, and interesting twists.

Murray (Martin Short) is a male fairy godmother-in-training. While Murray has the best of intentions, his ineptness always comes to the fore.
