Synopsis

The Coen brothers bring this dark, romantic comedy. Slick divorce lawyer Miles Massey (George Clooney), obsessed with his pearly white teeth, has become bored with his endless victories of huge settlements for his Beverly Hills divorce clients. When Rex Rexroth (Edward Herrmann) is caught with another woman, his wife Marylyn (Catherine Zeta-Jones) sees it as an opportunity to become a wealthy divorcee. Rex hires Miles, but Miles becomes infatuated with Marylyn who has her own agenda; she plans to marry and divorce wealthy men until she becomes independently wealthy. Her next victim, or husband, is hilarious buffoon and oil tycoon Howard Doyle (Billy Bob Thornton).

Dove Review

Intolerable Cruelty, which pokes fun at marriage a la Hollywood and the legal profession, is an adult comedy that will do well at the box office. Dove cannot award the Dove Family-Approved Seal to this film due to its offensive language and immoral behavior.
