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.
