File:Clooney Zeta-Jones 7227.jpg

That rare Coen Brothers project based on someone else's idea. The original screenplay was written by Robert Ramsey and Matt Stone, then touched up by the Coens. Ramsey and Stone had shopped it to Ron Howard and Jonathan Demme before the Coens got on board. Perhaps because of this, it seems a little out of place among their other films (not that a Coen Brothers romantic comedy wouldn't seem out of place).

George Clooney plays Miles Massey, a hotshot divorce attorney whose prenup is the industry standard ("They devote a whole semester to it at Harvard Law"). He takes the case of Rex Rexroth, played by Edward Herrmann, and despite video evidence that Rex has "a wandering pee-pee", Miles wins the case, and plaintiff Marilyn Rexroth, played by Catherine Zeta Jones, is left with nothing.

Or is she?
