Starring George Clooney and Catherine Zeta Jones, Intolerable Cruelty is a romantic black comedy from the writer-director team of Joel and Ethan Coen. Miles Massey (Clooney) is a suave and sophisticated divorce attorney, famous for creating an ironclad pre-nuptial agreement known as the 'Massey Pre-nup'. Marilyn Rexroth (Zeta Jones) is a gorgeous gold digger who complicates Massey's life and challenges his beliefs after he represents her husband in a divorce case. When she then hires him to draft a prenuptial agreement for her upcoming wedding to a Texas billionaire, Miles is convinced she is up to something. Having finally met his match, Massey falls head over heels for the stunning femme fatale. A wild and quirky movie in their usual madcap style, Intolerable Cruelty most resembles the golden age of Hepburn and Tracy battle-of-the-sexes comedies. The screwball antics are enabled by a stellar supporting cast that includes Billy Bob Thorton, Geoffrey Rush, and Cedric the Entertainer.
