For fans of the screwball comedy era of film, this Coen Brothers film is an energetic joy. It contains the usual off the wall Coen Bros. characters, but the madcap pace is amped up and the in depth and structured characters fall by the wayside. In another directing team's hands, this could be a recipe for disaster, but the Coens know the genre they are paying homage to and craft a film that is funny, satisfying, and never boring.

As a movie, it is a typical so-so romantic comedy. As a COEN BROTHERS movie - it's just not good. It took 8 years to develop, so it's either that it was fussed with until it was barely recognizable, or that it could have used another year or two in order to get it right... The story lacks the stylish flow of a Coen project, instead it clunks along with weak humor, and generic, colorless characters (which is perhaps the most disappointing element - these fellas are the KINGS of brilliant character building, what happened?) It's best to forget who made it, and just watch...it's more Tolerable that way.

Intolerable Cruelty review

Donovan Donaly (Geoffrey Rush) discovers his wife having an affair. Rex Rexroth (Edward Herrmann) was caught cheating by a private investigator named Gus Petch (Cedric The Entertainer). Rex asks the assistance of a skilled divorce Lawyer named Miles Massey (George Clooney). Marylin Rexroth (Catherine Zeta-Jones) tries to get back by hiring Freddy Bender (Richard Jenkins). Soundtrack, screenplay and direction was fantastic. Humor was surprisingly good, which is evident by the brothers talented minds. Only reservations this reviewer had were the huge cast while some of the background characters were left of such as Donovan and the career-minded Herb and sometimes cartoonish moments of Wrigley. One of the best quotes: "Life is compromise." "Struggle and challenge and ultimate destruc...
