    Maybe I just love the Coens, but I had a blast watching this movie. It seems to be in somewhat limited release, so it may be rough to find, but well worth it.

    The tagline that imdb gave the movie is exactly accurate: Intelligence is relative. It's ludicrous, hilarious and startlingly funny. You don't have to think, but you won't leave feeling stupid.

    Did you? I had some reservations about it considering it contained elements of high school and drama class...

    I just may have to go see it now.

    It's not as twisted/tangled as Burn After Reading.

    I know it's not going to be everyone's favorite, but I laughed so much at Hamlet 2. I felt bad for the main char as well as couldn't stop laughing. It had a Dumber and Dumber element at times when it was like "He just didn't get the real word". I felt it had a good mix of comedy and ridiculousness.

    can't go wrong with Brad Pitt and George at the same movie. I also liked Ocean's 11-13
    and i knw some of u guys will disagree, but this 2 guys together is like a movie magnet to my eyes.

    Clooney and Pitt's characters in here was amazing; hilarious and completely unlike most of the more serious or grown-up characters the two have done lately. Their roles were entirely unexpected, so it made you laugh all the more seeing two A-listers bouncing around the way they did.
