Intolerable Cruelty
Screwball comedy from the Coen brothers

submit to reddit

Miles Massey, a successful LA divorce lawyer, first meets gold-digger Marilyn Rexroth when he is hired by her millionaire husband to crush her crippling divorce suit. Though sparks fly, Massey trounces her in court. But that's not the last he will see of the one-woman bank account hoover...

The Coens' first mainstream romantic comedy is a superb hijacking of an ailing art form - short, sharp and frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious. Zeta-Jones shines in a tailor-made role, but this is mostly a wonderful vehicle for Clooney, framing his matinee-idol looks but playing to his sublime comic timing.
