Intolerable Cruelty

If you liked The Big Lebowski or Fargo or Raising Arizona or any of the other great Coen Brothers films then I recommend that you do not waste any money on their latest effort, Intolerable Cruelty. It was crap. I mean, remember that scene about Vogon Poetry in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

And I qouth:

"Vogon poetry is of course the third worst in the Universe.

The second worst is that of the Azagoths of Kria. During a recitation by their Poet Master Grunthos the Flatulent of his poem "Ode To A Small Lump of Green Putty I Found In My Armpit One Midsummer Morning" four of his audience died of internal haemorrhaging, and the President of the Mid-Galactic Arts Nobbling Council survived by gnawing one of his own legs off. Grunthos is reported to have been "disappointed" by the poem's reception, and was about to embark on a reading of his twelve- book epic entitled My Favourite Bathtime Gurgles when his own major intestine, in a desperate attempt to save life and civilization, leapt straight up through his neck and throttled his brain.

The very worst poetry of all perished along with its creator Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Greenbridge, Essex, England in the destruction of the planet Earth."

This is pretty much how I felt whilst enduring Intolerable Cruelty. It was so horrible. horrible. horridly horrible. Like soapy eggs.
