Intolerable Cruelty

A spot-on screwball comedy, but the Coen brothers seem to be more interested in being wry, ironic, and eccentric than showing any emotional involvement. We never feel like the characters are really in love, and we never see Catherine Zeta-Jones even pretend to fall in love. Great costumes, and wonderful supporting performances. (AMC Fenway)
