    “A Comedic Masterpiece” –Larry King

    OVERVIEW: Intelligence is relative in this hilarious new spy comedy from Joel and Ethan Coen, the Academy Award® -winning directors of No Country for Old Men and The Big Lebowski. Academy Award® winners George Clooney and Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, and Academy Award® winner Tilda Swinton star in this brilliantly clever and endlessly entertaining comedy of errors.

    SYNOPSIS: When a disc filled with some of the CIA’s most irrelevant secrets gets in the hands of two determined, but dim-witted, gym employees, the duo are intent on exploiting their find. But since blackmail is a trade better left for the experts, events soon spiral out of everyone's and anyone's control, resulting in a non-stop series of hilarious encounters!

    This was one of the silliest movies that I've ever seen... and I mean that as a compliment.
