Intolerable Cruelty [Oct. 11th, 2003|06:06 pm]

After an unprecidented two-week movie hiatus, I went to see Intolerable Cruelty today.
This is a Coen Brothers film, but it doesn't really feel like a Coen Brothers film. It's really rather slick and breezy, but then, when you least expect it, a little flare of surrealism flashes and you're reminded...
It's a movie about love and trust. It's a movie about marriage and divorce. It's interesting.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and George Cloony make this movie. They really do. They don't exactly have chemistry...but they have something, and it works.
The nicest surprise was seeing Julia Duffy, the maid from Newhart, as C Z-J's friend. The most disconcerting thing in the film was Edward Herrmann, Lorelai's dad, as a...train fetishist, I guess is the only way to explain it.

Still...I think that perhaps I wasn't in the right frame of mind to see this today...

I was wondering if the movie was worth seeing...Excellent.
