Intolerable Cruelty

Continuing the Coen Brothers movie reviews, (forgive the passive voice opening), I got to see Intolerable Cruelty.

As in O Brother where art thou? , the Coens are great at getting a comedic performance out of Clooney, playing on his vanity. In this case it's his flossing-teeth action, whereas in O Brother it's combing his hair.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is one of those people who looks even better on moving film than any still shot. I can see why Michael Douglas fell for her. 

This is a great movie, and I enjoyed it hugely, with all its plot twists and turns. 

Very funny indeed.
