  1. jooley's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    There's a couple of juicy trademark Coen scenes thrown in there, but otherwise painfully middle-of-the-road.

  2. bardley's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    much better than promoted or expected. also: richard jenkins.

  3. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Vaguely crass in a way I find it hard to put my finger on and is never any more than the sum of its shiny, superficial parts... but it made me and my partner at the time laugh an unreasonable amount and it is intoxicatingly cynical. Basically I like it against my better judgement!

  4. Ethan's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    This is what a romantic comedy from The Coen Brothers looks like.

  5. tri ...'s rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

  6. JUERGEN_K's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

  7. Renton47's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Has the benefit of being the Coen's most underrated film, if only because that spot is relatively uncontested. I like them most at peak-ridiculousness, and with the acting and names on display here, this is a comedic gem. Special props to Jenkins whose exasperated gestures make this. Would be higher if the final act didn't feel so hurried - the leap to murder feels unearned and the film starts to move through paces.

  9. Francesca Di Donna's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Ok, it's the worst Coen's movie, but I can see their style even in here. So, to a Coen's movie you can't give less than 3 stars.

  10. When the Sun Dies's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Hysterical. Perfect throwback to screwball comedies, and man, does it hold up. While not loved by many, and certainly not the brothers' best, I'm willing to bet time will treat this one immensely well.

  11. smndvdcl's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Warm cinematography, delectable interplay between Clooney and Zeta-Jones, and some suave intertextuality (allusions to Edgar Allen Poe's 'The Purloined Letter'), but it lacks the spark of Clooney's previous outing in 'Out of Sight' alongside Jennifer Lopez. It feels like a tale that could have gone deeper, but played safe with screwball comedy tropes.

  12. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

  13. Landen Celano's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    The lack of chemistry between the leads, and the inconsistent tone make this a rough viewing.

  14. Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

  15. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    2003, dir. JOEL COEN, ETHAN COEN - 7/10 (USA)

  16. DSPRKY's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Another typically funny Coen brothers offering that unfortunately lacks somewhat in substance.

  17. Addy K.'s rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Maligned and misunderstood upon release, INTOLERABLE CRUELTY examines the fickle nature of marriage, money and love, tongue firmly in cheek. Example: George Clooney's obsession with his teeth ends only after he has "mounted" Catherine Zeta Jones, who has never looked this good (thanks Roger Deakins). Such character nuances exist within a broader zany world the Coens suggest is much closer to real life than you think.

  18. Bárbara Soares's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Chato e sem graça. Principalmente por ser tratar de um filme dos Coen...

  19. jeanlice's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    funny script, but way too forced and sketchy.

  20. Tom The Larrakin's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    "WE GONNA MAKE YOU LAUGH, WE GONNA MAKE YOU CRY, BUT MOST OF ALL, WE GONNA NAIL YOUR ASS!!!" Classic!

  21. Junda Mane's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Mostly despised by Coen fanatics, but for what it is (a lighthearted rom-com) it works on every level. Charming & very funny.

  22. StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

  23. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    The Coens' Lubistch-inspired comedy has some laughs and good performances but ultimately doesn't come together into a great film.

  24. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Intolerable Cruelty

    Screwball comedies stop being made for a reason. The language of cinema changed and evolved and, in many ways, it killed the cinematic appeal of the screwball. The Coens hit many right notes and the cast is impeccable but in the end of the day there is an inability to innovate which propel too many awkward moments.
