Clooney stars as chain gang escapee Ulysses Everett McGill, who, along with fellow escapees Pete and Delmar (Turturro and Nelson), sets out on an "Odessey"-like journey through Depression-era Mississippi bound for home, where waits McGill's wife, Penny (Hunter). What the trio encounter along the way are a number of Coenesque situations and characters that, when all is said and done, seem like just that--individual situations that never really add up to a cohesive whole. They fit well enough to comprise a pretty enjoyable film, though. Fine performances by Clooney, Nelson, and Coen regulars Goodman and Turturro.
