"...Smith stalks everyone in sight and turns in a fabulously enjoyable comic performance..."

"[T]he film is fascinating for the way it merges the dueling sensibilities of its creative masterminds, investing a quintessentially Coen plot with Raimi’s love of broad physical comedy."
Ernest Tread called the exterminators. He had a rat in his place of business - his partner. Unfortunately, the exterminators dispatched the wrong rat. Written by the Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan.
Joel Coen appears uncredited as a reporter at the execution.
