So, for those of you who don't know, the Mt Rushmore game is this.. a "Mt Rushmore" is the 4 definitive american presidents. Not necessarily the best, the smartest, the greats. Just the 4 definitive presidents. So the Mt Rushmore game is this.. someone (aka me) picks a subject for consideration... then the rest of us (you), give your opinions on what the 4 definitive examples of that subject are.. and then the guy who picked the topic (me), gives you the correct answer. As an example, the Mt Rushmore of Vin Diesel movies would be xXx, the fast and the furious, Pitch Black, and Boiler Room. Okay, so here we go, we'll start things off with a bang.. this mt Rushmore is likely to cause fist fights, all over the forum..Today's Mt Rushmore is.. what is the Mt Rushmore of Coen Brothers Movies?BigDMcGee's Mt.

I think Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men are no doubters (even though Fargo wouldn't be on my personal Rushmore). I think Raising Arizona is the fourth. Hudsucker, Barton, and Serious Man just miss the cut.My personal Coen Brothers Rushmore is is Lebowski, Country, Burn After Reading, and Hudsucker. I think. For now anyway.

I think I gotta go with vu-man-chu on the main ones. I like o brother more than all of them except no country, but those first ones are the most "coeny" ones.

There's Something About Mary, Kingpin, Dumb and Dumber, and I guess Stuck on You, but the last one is debatable.

You've got too many movies in the same general time period. That's why I went with Raising Arizona as the 4th; you need one of their first movies and I thought that was the most identifiable one. I can't really argue with Miller's Crossing.

I just picked my 4 favorites. I guess I see your point. I would choose Miller's Crossing over Raising Arizona.McDonald's, Wendy's, In and Out, KFC?Edit: McDonald's and Wendy's are the two no-doubt choices I think.

I know, right?But I didn't even consider pizza places anyway. Seems like that should be its own Mt. Rushmore.

I had burger king, but then I saw subway and slapped my head, of course, so I quick changed it to subway, hope I got that in fast enough. That's how you play Mt Rushmore, kids.
