Movie synopsis

George Clooney establishes himself as a true Hollywood movie star and heir to the Cary Grant throne in this hysterical dark romantic comedy from the Coen brothers. Clooney plays Miles Massey, an unhappy and lonely divorce lawyer who specializes in protecting the wealth of men who have been caught cheating by their wives. But when Marilyn Rexroth (Catherine Zeta-Jones, who has never looked better) walks into his office, he thinks he might be in love, leading to a thrilling cat-and-mouse battle of the sexes in which audiences never know who's scamming whom and whether true love is ever attainable--especially when there is a lot of money at stake.Much has been made of the Coens' venture into mainstream movies, but INTOLERABLE CRUELTY fits in well in their pantheon of unusual and highly entertaining films, including THE HUDSUCKER PROXY, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, and BLOOD SIMPLE. Clooney and Zeta-Jones light up the screen, and they get ample support from Billy Bob Thornton as a rich country bumpkin oil magnate, Julia Duffy as a poor little rich girl, Richard Jenkins as a low-rent lawyer, Edward Herrmann as a train-loving naughty boy, Geoffrey Rush as an eccentric television producer, Cedric the Entertainer as an outrageous private investigator, and the inimitable Irwin Keyes as bizarre hit man Wheezy Joe. Fast-paced dialogue, gorgeous settings, and Clooney's facial gestures combine for a whirlwind film that is both fun and funny. The soundtrack contains many Simon & Garfunkel songs, in two cases riotously performed by a folksinging priest and a Las Vegas chapel bagpiper.

Editorial reviews

"...Clooney turns in a terrific comic performance that stirs memories of Cary Grant..."
Total Film - Mark Salisbury (11/01/2003)

"...In the Coen manner, the film brims with crafty character turns..."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (10/30/2003)

"...An intelligent, modern screwball comedy, a minor classic on the order of competent, fast-talking curve balls about deception and greed like Mitchell Liesen's EASY LIVING and Billy Wilder's MAJOR AND THE MINOR..."
New York Times - Elvis Mitchell (10/10/2003)

"...CRUELTY stands up fine as Friday-night fun..."
Sight and Sound - Ben Walters (11/01/2003)

"INTOLERABLE CRUELTY is a deliciously good time, enhanced by the big-screen charisma of its two stars..."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (10/10/2003)

"...With George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones working together beautifully..."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (10/10/2003)

"A quick-witted comedy....Catherin Zeta-Jones is Marilyn, a gorgeous schemer who wants to take her filthy-rich husband -- and Miles's woefully foolish client -- to the cleaners."
Wall Street Journal (12/04/2009)

A GREAT MOVIE!! TWO THUMBS WAY UP!!!

Created: 21/03/07
An EXCELLENT movie by far!! A MUST SEE/MUST OWN!!

Similar to a true-life example of what some will do in order to achieve freedom and independence, and also the consequences involved in some cases. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose! Offering a GREAT Cast, including: George Clooney, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Cedric, and Billy Bob Thornton. This movie will make you laugh, and maybe even make you cry!! This picture shows how true love many times comes out ahead!
If you havent yet seen it, we highly recommend it!! This is a movie that can be watched over & over again without wanting to put it away!
A movie for all age groups.

Divorce was NEVER so FUNNY~Clooney VS Zeta Jones~5 STAR

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 26/09/10
PLOT: George Clooney~ is the BEST weasel lawyer DIVORCE LAWYER~~~ MONEY CAN BUY~ why he has an IRON clad pre nup~ soon is hot and bothered by Catherine Zeta Jones who got ZIP when Clooney was her husbands lawyer~ got that?

THIS POKES FUN AT LAWYERS AND THE BUSINESS OF MARRIAGE ~ Miles Massey (Clooney) is bored and vain right down to his shiney smile~ he has the BEST pre nup around~ and handles those BIG divorce settlements too~ Mr. Rexroth hires MILES when his lovely wife (Zeta Jones) catches him cheating on video~ they have no prenup and the LOVELY Marylin Rexroth (Zeta Jones) ends up with ZIP when CLOONEY is able to bring up her GREEDY motives for the marriage in court.

the sparks fly between Miles and Marylin who he asks out the day of her divorce~ soon Marylin finds a wealthy COWBOY who loves her so much HE tears up the MASSEY prenup they just signed~

6 months later weathy divorced Marylin meets Miles in VEGAS at a lawyers conference ~ the passion is HOT and they end up married~ but Miles has been duped when he finds the wealthy COWBOY (Billy Bob Thornton) was an actor hired by Jones~ LOL~ Miles then has a HIT MAN hired to kill Marylin who duped him and he is NOT going to part with a penny of his hard earned money ~ the fun continues when MR Rexroth dies and leaves Marylin a wealthy woman~ this is a VERY FUNNY MOVIE~ the wealthy are the target right down to the GREEDY, TROPHY WIVES, SUGAR daddies, WEASEL LAWYERS~ this shows just how funny a divorce based on greed can be. Co written by the COHAN brothers. CLOONEY is hammy and hysterical. Catherine Zetta Jones is the woman who was to get ahead by marrying UP and then dumping him~ GREAT support cast~ with Cedric the Entertainer as the videotaping private detective/ housebreaking low life friend of Miles, Julia Duffy a rich EX trophy wife that Marylin helps coach on how to get ahead by marrying a dupe. one of the BEST comedys by the Cohans. I GIVE THIS 5 STAR FOR LAUGHS FROM BEGINING TO END.

marriage-God's command! what happened?

Created: 08/06/09
I think Catherine-Zeta Jones is one of the most beautiful women so I bought the movie. It is hilarious. I really think it is a true comedy of the dark side looking at what happened to the marriage institution as well as the lawyers who deal with it. I recommend seeing it for everyone.

"Intolerable Cruelty" - More than Tolerable Super Cute Film

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 09/04/13
Intolerable Cruelty (DVD, 2004)
George Clooney / Catherine Zeta-Jones

Super cute film. A romantic comedy for sure, but unlike any other romantic comedy you've seen before. Think "When Harry Met Sally" meets "War of the Roses." Not nearly as sinister as "War of the Roses." A much sweeter film, thank goodness, but with just enough of an edge where you don't feel like you've seen this script a million other times in a million other movies. Well-acted by both leads. If you want something a little different, with several unexpected plot twists, much like a good book, but still with a happy love story ending, this film is for you. Nice mix of funny and serious. There's a romantic, yet competitive, relationship between the two lead characters. Cute film. Would never win any Oscars, but it's not meant to. They don't all have to be "Gladiator." "Intolerable Cruelty" can be enjoyed on a lazy afternoon, for a date night, or have all the girls over to swoon over George Clooney and cheer for Catherine. Cute film.
