As a huge fan of the Coen brothers, I expect a lot from each new movie. Intolerable Cruelty wasn’t the best Coen film, but a mediocre Coen movie beats the crap out of most “good” movies.
A few reasons to enjoy the movie…
George Clooney’s Teeth
Asthma Inhaler Scene
Quick, fairly sharp dialog between beautiful people is always fun. Toss in a few (restrained) bits of the typical oddball Coen sensibilities and you’ve got something pretty, fun, offbeat and well worth watching.
