Intolerable Cruelty

Coen brothers' battle-of-the-sexes screwball comedy starring George Clooney as Miles, a hot shot divorce lawyer, and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Marilyn, a gold-digger who uses marriage/divorce to fund her extravagant lifestyle. In the aftermath of a court battle in which Miles denies Marilyn a sizeable marital purse, he finds himself smitten while she wants revenge. From there, the cold-hearted pair engage in a ruthless romantic pursuit to out-swindle each other.

The Coens' first mainstream romantic comedy is a superb hijacking of an ailing art form - short, sharp and frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious.
