Cute comedy. Definitely had some funny moments, but not something I'll watch over and over.

I think the film title speaks for itself...

"This film is intolerable, and forcing us to watch it is downright cruel; which is quite surprising. I mean, you take two of the worlds most charming stars (Clooney and Zeta-Jones) and pair them with two of the worlds most intriguing and visionary filmmakers (those darn Coen brothers) and you'd expect something magical, or at least TOLERABLE. Instead, you are handed a hot mess of unfunny moments and boredom inducing pandering. The Coen's have always been hit or miss, but I don't think they have ever missed this extremely. When you consider their magnificent work on films like `Fargo' and `Raising Arizona' (which somewhat fall in this cinematic genre) then you'd expect them to understand how to build a comedy this `subtle', but instead this film falls all sorts of short. Stay far away from this mess. I guess I'll never really understand the draw of this film. There is no chemistry between the stars, the dialog is stilted and the plot feels at one moment nonexistent and at then almost immediately too full and overworked. There is nothing to enjoy here, and that is sad when you consider how magnificent this looks on paper."

"Miles Massey, a prominent Los Angeles divorce attorney has everything, and in some cases, two of everything. Despite his impressive client list, a formidable win record, the respect of his peers and an ironclad contract the Massey pre-nup named after him, he's reached a crossroads in his life. Sated on success, boredom has set in and he's looking for new challenges. All that changes when Miles meets his match in the devastating Marylin Rexroth. Marylin is the soon-to-be ex-wife of his client Rex Rexroth, a wealthy real estate developer and habitual philanderer. With the help of hard charging private investigator Gus Petch, she has Rex nailed and is looking forward to the financial independence a successful divorce will bring. But thanks to Miles' considerable skills, she ends up with nothing. Not to be outdone, Marylin schemes to get even and as part of her plan, quickly marries oil tycoon Howard Doyle. Miles and his unflappable associate, Wrigley, unwittingly dig themselves in deeper and deeper as they go head-to-head with Marylin. Underhanded tactics, deceptions and an undeniable attraction escalate as Marylin and Miles square off in this classic battle of the sexes. This movie is decent, some good acting, decent script, decent direction, and nice atmosphere. A multiplex pleasing romance with quirky humour, it does work and should be enjoyed as that.
