    Not a terrible remake but not that good either.
    I did seek out and watch the original British film a couple of years ago, and of course it IS a classic. Both movies benefit from great acting from all concerned, and both are very funny in their own way. The appeal of the Coen Brothers film for American audiences is that its band of would-be thieves is composed of a number of very recognizable American "types" that would be as out of place in most British films as the cast of the '50s version would be to an American movie comedy today. (You see something similar if you watch the American and British versions of 'Ghosts', and to some extent 'The Office'.) Nevertheless, the '55 British original is most definitely a classic. Many of the British comedies of that era have not aged well.

    As a big motorcycle fan you just gotta love this scene
    Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.

    American Beauty was very unique
    it was a type of "coming of age" film of an adult

    What struck me was that each person in the film was trying desperately, in his or her own way, to find happiness, and for the most part not having a clue how to do so.
