An all-star cast, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and John Malkovich, come together in this outrageous spy comedy about murder, blackmail, sex addiction and physical fitness! 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! From Joel and Ethan Coen, the Academy Award-winning directors of No Country For Old Men and The Big Lebowski, comes this brilliantly clever and endlessly entertaining movie that critics are calling smart, funny, and original.

I fell asleep half way through. Nothing in the story line grabbed my interest. There was the potential in the basic idea to create a very tense, comic film. For me this failed. Having 'big name' actors in a film does not guarantee quality. I will not attempt to watch it again, instead I'll be passing the DVD onto very young members of the community.
Burn After Reading is an excellent comedic story from the Cohen brothers of blackmail, murder, bed hopping and spies is a rare example of an entire cast acting their socks off being such crazy characters that you wonder how it wasn't heaped with awards? Brad Pitt, George Clooney and John Malkovich play beyond their normal zones and give such hilarious performances that you can't help but smile.
I did chuckle at this film, it certainly wasn't what I was expecting, as It was quite dark. Ive since heard that this is normal for a coen brothers film. Worth a watch plenty, of swearing and a few twists !
