Directors: Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (Uncredited)
Actors: George Clooney, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Geoffrey Rush, Richard Jenkins and Billy Bob Thornton
Genre: Comedy, Crime and Romance
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.
