Screwball romantic comedy about a gold-digging divorcee (Catherine Zeta-Jones) seeking revenge on the slick Beverly Hills divorce attorney (George Clooney) who got her philandering millionaire husband off the hook scot-free, only to end up falling in love with him. Full of dark humor, whip-smart repartee and eccentric characters, Joel and Ethan Coen's zany romp through the legal land mines of modern matrimony uses the paddle of satire to navigate cynical thematic waters in order to arrive at its conclusion that love is nonnegotiable and that marriage is based on trust, not contractual agreements. A comedic view of divorce, some sexual humor, brief violence, an instance of rough language, as well as sporadic crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
