Movie Review by Movie Addict
January 29th, 2009

Favorite Movie Quote: "Put up a note? "Highly classified sh*t found: Raw intelligence sh*t, CIA sh*t?" Hello, anybody lose their secret CIA sh*t? I don't think so!"

There really doesn't seem to be much sense in what is going on. It is like Fargo in that respect. And, like Fargo, it is an opportunity for everyone to just have a good time and be funny.

Brad Pitt is hilarious, and Frances McDormand is equally so. Together they just make this one of the funniest films about spies and murder and infidelity that you can imagine.

George Clooney spends most of his time bedding as many women as he can, and he gets caught in the middle of Pitt and McDormands plans. His paranoia reaches new heights as things develop.

There are many more great performances, by great I mean very funny, by John Malkovich, Richard Jenkins, David Rasche, and J.K. Simmons.

Everyone is good in this movie. I think because everyone was given free reign and took the opportunity to make the most of it.
