Sometimes it comes on Encore, and various spin-off channels thereof.

Mental Pooperscooper, it's no longer out of print, so you should be able to find it for sale on Amazon or any other online DVD shop.

I LOVE this movie. When the Cohens released this and "Oh Brother" back to back was their high water mark just before they crapped out (Ladykillers?), and then got all pretentious(pick between Country and Burn, they were both wankfests). My favorite bits are when he recollects marrying his wife.... He says, "Don't you want to get to know me more?" She said, "Why? Does it get better?" She looked at me like I was a dope, which I never really minded from her. And she had a point, I guess. We knew each other as well then as now. Anyway, well enough.".. F'n gold. And at the end when he's sizing up all the haircuts... Won't give anything away. A truly underrated film and I'm glad you reviewed it. They nailed the whole Noir bit to a tee... And Billy Bob has never been better. One of the most underrated actors around right now. Cheers guys, you never cease to amaze me with what you pull out in your reviews...

Yeah, this is my second favorite Cohen bro's film right behind Oh Brother. Nobody I know seems to have seen it. It's on pretty often on one of the premium channels for any of you that want to watch it.

I thought it was great too. There are a lot of movies where a few bad choices leads to really complicated consequences. But most of them aren't believable, they just leave you with the feeling that the main character had all those opportunities to get out of his trouble again that he would have taken if he wasn't such a complete idiot. But with this movie you really understand how he got there, it really feels like everything happens to him inevitably.

Another great Coen Brothers movie, but in my opinion, Hudsucker Proxy is their most often overlooked film. I mean, Paul Newman? Come on. You know, for kids!

The Hudsucker Proxy is my favorite Coen Brothers movie by far, but I feel like far more people have seen it than The Man Who Wasn't There. But yeah, everybody should see both of those movies... no doubt about it.

Really, RoG? Granted, I don't live in the most intellectual area, but I could count on one hand the amount of people I know who have seen The Hudsucker Proxy, much less even know of its existence. I guess that's what makes it so special to me. Lebowski is my favorite Coen Brothers film, but most people know about it, so whenever I watch Hudsucker it's like my own little secret film.
