Miles Massey (George Clooney) has reached a crossroads in his life. Despite a string of impressive legal victories and being creator of the only impenetrable pre-nuptial agreement in existence (the Massey Pre-Nup), something is missing. But he is about to get more than he could ever have expected when Marilyn Rexroth (Catherine Zeta-Jones) walks in to his office. Soon to be ex-wife of his client, millionaire property tycoon and love rat, Rex Rexroth, Marilyn is anticipating financial security and independence from a bumper divorce settlement. But as a result of Miles's courtroom prowess, she ends up with nothing. However, despite his success, Miles does not account for the old adage, 'Hell has no fury like a woman scorned'. Not to be undone, Marilyn sets about exacting revenge on Miles and quickly weds oil tycoon Howard Doyle (Billy Bob Thornton) as part of her plans. What ensues is a complex sexually charged battle of wits. Miles and his unflappable associate Wrigley, find themselves embroiled in underhand tactics and acts of deception, in this slick and sassy romantic comedy.

Marguerite, South Africa. 22 July 2014

This is one of Ethan & Joel Coen's less bizarre films, with a message about marital fidelity that can be interpreted either positively or negatively, depending on the viewer's attitude. Miles Massey (George Clooney)is a typically cliched screen lawyer, who likes to win at all costs. Marilyn, of the many surnames (Catherine Zeta-Jones), is a woman who makes her living marrying and divorcing rich, gullible men. When Miles wins a "no-pay" divorce settlement for his client, which leaves Marilyn penniless, she concocts an elaborate plan to get even. Her partners in crime are another disgruntled divorce settlement loser (Geoffrey Rush in a delightful cameo role) and a TV soap opera actor (Billy Bob Thornton).
Sexy-suave Clooney and just plain sexy Zeta-Jones make a dynamite screen combination with comic support from Edward Herrmann as Marilyn's first husband,and Cedric the Entertainer as a private detective-turned TV reality show host. Carter Burwell provides the cleverly selected music score to enhance Bill Condon's equally clever screenplay, and Mary Zophre provides the classy costumes.
