An ex-CIA agent writes his memoirs, which
end up in the hands of blackmailers who try to sell it to the
Russians (the Russians?).
An all-star cast shines in this complicated
plot of dark comedy, brilliantly conceived and directed by the
multi-talented Coen brothers.
But it's the scenes of secret CIA conversations
that get the biggest laughs. That and Brad Pitt showing off his
best dance moves.
The movie Burn After Reading is
an adult, R-rated, offbeat spy comedy.
This film is a smart Dumb & Dumber
goofball crime caper about two not-so-clever gym employees
who try to blackmail a miserly, stingy CIA agent after they come
across a CD-ROM containing possible classified information.
This flick is not to be taken seriously
and doesn't make much sense, but it's quite a kick to watch this
bunch of Oscar super stars act foolish.
It's got a real list of A-list of favorite
actors that are clearly having a cut up time.
