“If Cary Grant were in his forties today he would be making this movie with the Coens. Instead we get George Clooney, and that ain't bad.”

“If Cary Grant were in his primes I could see him playing the Clooney role in this Coen Brother's flick--and he'd be great paired up against gorgeous Zeta-Jones!”

About this movie


A sleek George Clooney and a seductive Catherine Zeta-Jones square off magnificently in the divorce comedyIntolerable Cruelty. The plot is simple: Lawyer supreme Miles Massey (Clooney,Out of Sight,Ocean's Eleven) skillfully outmaneuvers gold-digger Marylin Rexroth (Zeta-Jones,Chicago,Traffic) when she divorces her wealthy husband--and she sets out to get revenge. But this movie comes from the creative minds of the Coen Brothers (Fargo,Raising Arizona,O Brother Where Art Thou?), and soIntolerable Crueltyincludes a Scottish wedding chapel in Vegas, an asthmatic hit man, fluffy-dog-stroking European nobility, and a legendarily unbreakable pre-nuptial agreement. Still, it's pretty restrained for the Coens; smooth and consistent, it never stumbles as disappointingly as their movies can, but also never quite hits the operatic pitch of their best work. It's still damn funny, though, with top-notch performances from the leads as well as Geoffrey Rush, Cedric the Entertainer, and Billy Bob Thornton.--Bret Fetzer
