John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, George Clooney and Brad Pitt star in this Coen brothers crime comedy concerning the whereabouts of a sensitive disc containing the incriminating memoirs of alcoholic CIA agent Osbourne Cox (Malkovich). Cox's wife, Katie (Swinton), who is having an affair with married federal marshall, Harry Pfarrer (Clooney), is making plans to leave her husband, and is advised by her divorce lawyer to copy his personal files onto a disc. The disc finds its way via a circuitous route to the Hardbodies fitness gym, where two unscrupulous employees, Linda (McDormand) and Chad (Pitt) decide to exploit their find for all they can get. Events soon spiral out of everyone's control in a cascading series of surreal and darkly comic encounters and misunderstandings.

And as for Linda,s obsession with cosmetic surgery the main theme that runs through this film I have met people like this, and what you would like to tell them is they would be much better off with almost a complete body transplant, and by default that is what she gets in the end, the only one to come out of this grand fiasco with any plus points at all. Brad Pitts bungling incompetence is played to a fine art, whilst George Clooney,s dedicated obsession with his wife's surprise present is definitely worth seeing, and as for John Malkovich he is continually on the point of meltdown brought about by his employer and his wife's actions.
In conclusion I would say you have to be in tune to this particular humour, which lets face it is tongue in cheek blacker than black.
John Malkovich is outstanding as the on the edge CIA operative who you see unraveling before your very eyes, and seeing Brad Pitt portrayed as a complete moron and George Cloony as a pathetic loser is just sublime. The premise (without giving anything away) is that each character is having some kind of mid life crisis due to circumstances they are in and those circumstances collide and become entwined with the others and situations escalate and a farce ensues.
I would be the first to admit that it is certainly not everyone's cup of tea and you have to have a pretty unique sense of humour to fully appreciate it and see the humour, but it is a very well crafted film and can be enjoyed on many other levels.
Anyone who enjoys Coen Brothers films either owns these films already or won't be able to find a reason not to buy them at the prices available. Anyone who doesn't enjoy Coen Brothers films may well have strayed onto the wrong webpage.
Another way to put it would be that it's like a long Seinfeld episode with less laughs and more drama.
