Fargo - Favourite Comedy Film 33

I love the Coen Brothers film - this is very black humour of course but in an appropriate, intelligent way. The cast is superb - I can't think of many films with the heroine being a pregnant female sheriff.

Jerry Lundegaard: Well, heck, if you wanna play games here! I'm workin' with ya on this thing, but I... Okay, I'll do a damned lot count!
Marge Gunderson: Sir? Right now?
Jerry Lundegaard: Sure, right now! You're darned tootin

In his original review Ebert called it "one of the best films I've ever seen" and explained that "films like Fargo are why I love the movies."
