This one falls into the top of my comedy list. It has a classy unique style, an edge between absurd and reality which doesn’t reveal if the movie is serious or not after all. You should love this if you love British humor. The jokes are based on great performances, mimics and twisted comic situations that drive the movie into random directions, making it even more fun. The kind of movie where you sit back, enjoy and don’t care what happens next. After “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, Clooney once again shows his talent for comedies.
