And the winner was…

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

PG-13 | | 2001

Directors: Joel CoenEthan Coen (uncredited)
Writers: Homer (epic poem “The Odyssey”), Ethan Coen, Joel Coen

Here’s what the teen audience had to say…

FINAL RATING: 5 out of 8 slices

Every PaaM night, we ask our teens to give us their honest reviews of the winning movie. We then select voices that capture the range of opinions and critiques. Read what Yhara, Shamil. Chanda, and A’Janae had to say about the journey flick.

Choose three words to describe the movie.

Yhara: Humorous, random, wordy

Shamil: interesting, funny, heartfelt

Chanda: Unique, funny, different (because I don’t really watch movies like this)

A’JanaeBoring, thrown together, and old-timey

What was your favorite scene? Bonus: Why? **SPOILER ALERT!**

Yhara: My favorite scene was when the band finally performed and got pardoned because it’s what all of them had been waiting for: to be appreciated and pardoned for their wrong doings.

Shamil: When Eric told the truth to his friends about his mission. They were upset, but they continued to help him–this shows character development.

Chanda: The scene with the four men singing at the venue. The reason being that it was like a total flip on their characters and the plot.

A’JanaeThe KKK scene because it was the most interesting.

Would you recommend this to a friend? Why or why not?

Yhara: I would recommend this to a friend because its not a typical blockbuster film that most people are used to.

Shamil: I would because its not like regular Hollywood movies. The singing, acting, and comedy makes it really unique. Very bona fide.

Chanda: I would because it was kind of funny towards the end. The singing was really entertaining.

A’Janae: No, because most of my friends wouldn’t enjoy a movie like this.
