Tolerably Adequate
I went to "Intolerable Cruelty" with high expectations: a Coen Brothers comedy with beautiful actors in the lead roles, dealing with divorce lawyers and pre-nuptial agreements among the super-rich in Los Angeles. And certainly the film has its Coen quota of bizarre moments, ludicrous situations, inane dialogue. I chuckled often. But the movie lacks the big pay-off laughs that I was hoping for. There is something vaguely disappointing about it all - a sense that the filmmaking team was resting on their laurels, not following up on the truly inspired creativity that produced such minor miracles as "Fargo" and "Raising Arizona." I mean: it's not exactly "original" or "bold" or "unpredictable" to poke fun at lawyers in Southern California! And when I go to a Coen Brothers film, "original," "bold" and "unpredictable" are exactly what I hope to see on the screen. If this had been the work of some no-name director making his or her first big-budget flick, I might have been more impressed - and maybe that's not fair, but hey, that's the way of the world. I rated this film only a six out of ten - and a weak six at that.
