My particular fave among their movies -the ones I've watched, of course- is "Barton Fink"; "Fargo" is good too, ditto "Raising Arizona" or "Blood Simple". I've always thought they're overrated anyway, can't think of a Coen Bros. film that I thought: "It's a masterpiece, period". Possibly "Lebowsky" is their more evident attempt at a pure comedy, and hence I guess it can be considered their funniest oeuvre, but you've got to be in the mood for it and I didn't consider Jeff Bridges character especially likeable, let alone identify myself with him.

I never got into Blood Simple , gave up on it and have never gone back . The Dude is a likeable rogue , a rough diamond if you will . I get that you don't think he is likeable but he does want save  " that poor woman" . I reckon , most of us will have met a 'Dude' at some point - . .what about the Credence?🙃

I've met lots of Dude-ish characters  ;D

Not on purpose, Mike, I can't discuss it as I haven't watched it

It's well worth it, although not a typical Coen Bros. film...
