A slick divorce lawyer (George Clooney) becomes obsessed with a conniving serial divorcee (Catherine Zeta-Jones sporting an unidentifiable accent). As theur lives become more and more intertwined it’s hard to know who is double-crossing who. This isn’t the best of the Coen brother’s comedies and I probably wouldn’t bother if I were you.
More Coen brothers. This one is also supposed to be a comedy but if this is a comedy I am afraid to see what a tragedy might bring. A timid Jewish man’s life begins to unravel as his marriage, career and family all fall apart at once. Bleak and boring I also wouldn’t bother with this one.
With my own impending nuptials, I couldn’t resist this one and boy was it a good call. They’re calling it the female hangover but I think it’s better. Charming screw-up, Annie (Kirsten Wiig) is asked to be her best friend, Lillian’s (Maya Rudolph) Maid Of Honour. Chaos ensues when she strikes up a bitter rivalry with “perfect” fellow bridesmaid, Helen (Rose Byrne). Disgusting and hilarious at the same time, we were weeping with laughter. Melissa McCarthy steals every scene she’s in as brash, forthright bridesmaid, Megan and The IT Crowd’s Chris Dowd does a charming turn as an Irish cop. It’s not perfect. The bizarre British roommates are a bit superfluous but if you’ve ever been a bride or a bridesmaid, you’ll love it.
In this gripping Argentinean Oscar-winner, retired legal counsellor, Benjamin Esposito (the surprisingly sexy, Ricardo Darin) looks back on the horrific rape and murder case that changed the course of his life twenty-five years ago. I was absolutely riveted. The acting is superb and the chemistry between the leads is tangible. Id the ending doesn’t knock your socks off I’ll eat my hat.
