intolerable cruelty

We sort of caught this movie last night. I had one eye on it and one eye on blogger for the first half, so I’m probably not qualified to comment on it much. I did manage to catch a few funny scenes. I especially liked the ones featuring two Rottweilers (go figure). They would’ve been better had they featured Dobermans, but hey, you can’t have everything.

As for the actors, George Clooney is ok. I don’t understand why everyone goes ga-ga over him. I can’t do that because I can’t get past him being a character on Roseanne (a show I loved, by the way). That’s always what I think of when I see him–some dorky twentysomething.

All of Billy Bob Thornton’s scenes were good. I didn’t even know he was in the movie. Against my better judgement, he’s becoming one of my favorite actors.

Now I’ve always found Catherine Zeta-Jones attractive but she has since lost the throne to Cristina Scabbia from the band Lacuna Coil on my “I wouldn’t kick her out of bed for eating crackers” list. Just kidding. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Uh, back to the point…she’s a decent actress and played her part well. I liked her best in Traffic, though. Now, that was a cool flick.

The FlickFilosopher rather liked the movie.
