Product Description

Amazon.ca

L’un produit, l’autre réalise, mais les deux frères Coen scénarisent ensemble depuis 1984. Abordant avec un talent réellement original quelques-uns des genres emblématiques du cinéma américain (policier, comédie musicale.…), ils se laissent glisser non sans humour sur les rives de la comédie romantique avec Intolerable Cruelty.

Miles Massey (George Clooney) est l’avocat le plus efficace qui soit en matière de divorce. Intelligent, charismatique et drôle, il est la séduction même. Marylin Rexroth (Catherine Zeta-Jones), quant à elle, a presque fait du divorce sa profession. Belle, vénéneuse et féline, elle est la manipulation incarnée. Évidemment, leur rencontre, dans un grand jeu à qui arnaquera l’autre, fera des étincelles.

Dès le prologue et le générique, les frères Coen nous rassurent : leur ironie et leur humour second degré ne se sont pas dilués dans les codes du genre romantique. Au contraire. Personnages décalés, mise en scène à la limite du burlesque et verve des dialogues servent le film sans jamais le transformer en parodie. Car les Coen respectent le genre, sans aucun doute. En veulent pour preuves, la réalisation lumineuse et élégante, le charme de Clooney (dont les capacités d’autodérision le rendent encore plus irrésistible) et la sophistication de Zeta-Jones. Inattendu, subtil et dynamique, Intolerable Cruelty rend un bien bel hommage à l’amour. Des prises supplémentaires surprenantes, un making of et un documentaire sur les costumes complètent agréablement le DVD. – Helen Faradji.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best comedy iv'e seen for a long time. May 31 2004
Format:DVD
Catherine Zeta-Jones and George Clooney give and outstanding performance in this funny movie. When it came out, I scoffed at the movie, because I thought all of Zeta-Jones's movies were bad. However, she gives a great performance in this movie, along with her co-star. This is a good comedy that I would reccomend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Full of surprises. Great laughs. Feb. 22 2011
Format:DVD
This review contains NO spoilers.

I am surprised at the many negative reviews here and on [...]. I consider myself to be a picky movie watcher, not easily impressed.
Intolerable Cruelty (awful title) is one of the rare films to impress me recently.
The production is very slick, as is to be expected from the Coen brothers. The acting by Clooney and Zeta-Jones is top-notch, and they were cast perfectly for their roles. There is a colorful cast of supporting characters. The film only made me laugh out loud once in a while, but almost every scene is fun since the movie doesn't take itself seriously. The plot is full of unpredictable twists, keeping things lively. The writing is excellent, with many clever lines. By the end I was truly jumping out of my seat, raving about how great a movie it is.

If you don't believe me, here's a quote from professional film reviewer James Berardinelli ([...]):

[...] for those who like intelligent, quirky movies filled with big laughs, dry wit, and other small pleasures, it's difficult to beat Joel and Ethan Coen's humorous outings. Intolerable Cruelty is the most recent of these - a film that takes the traditional romantic comedy and tweaks it by way of The War of the Roses. Rarely has strife between the sexes been so ruthless, so civilized, and so funny.

Ignore the negative reviews and give this film a chance!

3.0 out of 5 stars clooney + coens = ??? July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
as long as you realize this is a screwball comedy, it's not SO bad. there are some very funny moments, courtesy of clooney. but there are also many dead spots. and some pretty bad dialogue - ie, could've been written and directed better. an interesting effort from the coens, easily their least idosyncratic film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is Diner Food Really That Bad? July 11 2004
By Maeri
Format:DVD
Miles Massey (George Clooney) is a ruthless divorce lawyer and Marilyn Rexroth (Catherine Zeta Jones) is an equally ruthless gold-digging wife in this Coen Brothers take on the screwball comedy genre. The film takes place in a slick, shiny and heartless Los Angeles-it's a place with no sympathy for losers. In the old thirties' comedies, there was always an element of humorous class confrontation (and sympathy for losers) that gave the films an edge-there's not enough of it here. If we knew a little bit why Miles and Marilyn were so driven (Miles seems to have a father problem, but we never really learn anything about Marilyn) it could put their behavior into perspective.
The inclusion of an African-American detective is interesting-but he's of so little value to Miles that Miles meets him for lunch in a dingy diner instead of one of the glossier restaurants we see in the film. In the screwball genre, this should be the scene where we see the better, decent side of Miles; we should see that he's a man of the people. But in this film the diner, usually a place of populist wisdom, (and a handy cinematic counterpoint to the empty values of the wealthy characters), is dismissed and ridiculed. It's too bad, because the dowdy patrons of the diner are also surrogates for the ordinary people in the audience. If Miles had met the detective in an upscale restaurant (and taken Marilyn to the diner), that would have told us something about his inborn decency despite his privileged background-then we would have really been on his side. And if we'd been given an inkling of why Marilyn is so money-hungry, we might have more sympathy for her. This film lacks the underlying empathy for ordinary people that the great comedies had beneath their slick facades. This empathy is in the other Coen Brothers films, so it's disappointing not to see it here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Screwball June 10 2004
By A Customer

If you enjoy the classic screwball comedies of Preston Sturges (The Lady Eve, Sullivan's Travels), you'll enjoy this. It's not great, but it is very good. I was pleasantly surprised
