Jerry, a small-town Minnesota car salesman is bursting at the seams with debt... but he's got a plan. He's going to hire two thugs to kidnap his wife in a scheme to collect a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. It's going to be a snap and nobody's going to get hurt... until people start dying.

And if you think her small-time investigative skills will give the crooks a run for their ransom... you...

There's humor (which is practically always the fact with the Coens of course), there's an engaging and thrilling story (probably still their best) that also makes some subtle, interesting comments on our society as a whole, the characters are meticulously constructed and especially pregnant policewoman Marge....

Frances McDormand is also very good as Marge Gunderson. Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare also play their respective parts well, particularly the former.
