Intolerable Cruelty


The Coen brothers head into rom-com territory for their latest release. He's a smart divorce lawyer, she's one of his victims. But then she decides to hire him for her upcoming wedding to a wealthy Texan. One thing leads to another as he struggles to control his hormones while she works her charm on him. They're both aware that neither is entirely on the level, yet they can't deny the attraction between them. What's going to win -- love or money?

Ian Douglas: Mmm I don't think this is the best effort from the Coen brothers. Although billed as a romantic comedy (and it does indeed have elements of one) it is more a romantic farce. It starts off over the top, and frequently veers back there, instead of being more straight comedy. Although there are a few good laughs, these are infrequent, I found it more silly than funny much of the time. The leading man has a tooth-fetish (as opposed to his hair gel fetish in O Brother), while Catherine doesn't really do much except float around looking gorgeous. In all, a bit disappointing, given the Coen brothers' pedigree.
