Intolerable Cruelty

Jays Rating:
Director: / /

A Coen Brothers movie that isn’t very funny but is entertaining is the over the top comedy Intolerable Cruelty. George Clooney plays a divorce attorney who specializes in saving his rich clients millions of dollars in divorce settlements. Catharine Zeta-Jones is a gold digger who specializes in marring rich men then divorcing them and taking their money. When the two meet only one thing can happen, they will fall in love or try to kill each other. Clooney and Zeta-Jones are great in this film but it lacks something. Maybe humor, funny one-liners and witty dialogue. Parts of this movie were intolerable cruelty to sit through. Other parts were enjoyable and I’m giving it a C rating.

This is just a summary of the movie followed by a comment or two.
