Intolerable Cruelty
Review: Miles Massey is a high powered Los Angeles divorce lawyer nearing a midlife crisis. He meets Marilyn Rexroth who is a Beverly Hills lawyer and they get married. His intention for him marrying her is so he can make millions out of the divorce.
Directors: Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (Uncredited)
Actors: George Clooney, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Geoffrey Rush, Richard Jenkins and Billy Bob Thornton
Year: 2003
Genre: Comedy, Crime and Romance
Conclusion: 3/5
A brilliant slick and colorful screwball comedy. As always great directing from the Coen Brothers. The relationship with George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones worked really well and looked like they actually enjoyed working together. Apparently this is Joel and Ethan’s most expensive film to make and also their first working film from an existing script. Both have stated that this film was nearly in the works for eight years. A very enjoyable film that you could never get tired of.
