I liked this movie very much. It had a very nice blend of Comedy and Thinking, plus some very good references to The Odyssey, including John Goodmans character.
If you notice the burning cross was a reference to How Odysseus defeated the Cyclops, I.E Using a wooden post that was burning at the tip to put out the Cyclopses Eye. The Three women Down at the stream that Seduced Ulysses and Company? OBVIOUSLY a Reference to The Sirens.
LOVED the "I'm a Man of Constant Sorrow" Music Video, and the music in general. It very much reflected Mississippi, and was just excellent in it's timing and placement.

I'd really suggest this movie to anyone who's got a few hours to kill and nada to do.
