5.0 out of 5 stars
It'll nail yo ass, 23 Feb. 2004
Sorry for using a qoute from this film as my title, but if you didn't get it this is just another reason to see this film.
This another exmple of the cinema magic by the Coen brothers taking a standard film genre turning it on it's head and completely twisting it with their usual flair, eye for great images and endlessly qoutable dialogue.
I noticed in one of the early reviews someone rated it 1 star cause it was't the corny romance they wanted, well it is romantic, cliched, but in the best possible way. This is short, sharp and very often laugh out loud hilarious, when i saw this in the theatre people where in tears laughing, and i was on the verge.
This isn't aromantic comedy, it's a screwball mayhem Clooney is excellant, Zeta-Jones does what she does best (looks pretty), Cedric the Entertainer although implausible named is fantastic, and minor characters like The Baron von Epsy and Wheezy Joe nearly steal the show away from them.
I can't recommend it highly enough
