In an homage to romantic comedies of the 1940s and 1950s (especially "Adam's Rib," starring Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy), this is the story of two New York divorce attorneys (Moore, Brosnan) who are often competing against each other, but end up in a relationship nonetheless. When they get married, can they avoid the same issues at home that lead people to provide them business at work? One of the central cases in the story is the heavily-publicized divorce of a rock star (Sheen) from his wife (Posey).
This sound awfully like the Coen's recent Intolerable Cruelty - with slightly less beautiful people in the male slash female roles. Moore is a fine comedic actor who was herself a hoot in a Coen flick. Remain to be convinced - and Hepburn/Tracy is simply an impossible act to follow, let alone homage. But then, any movie that featurea a Badie and a Friendly in the cast and crew, might have something going for it.
