If you like lawyer jokes, you’ll love this film, which plays on stereotypes and creates a few new ones while dispensing a much-needed message about the power of making marriage work, against all odds.

Audrey Woods (Julianne Moore) and Daniel Rafferty (Pierce Brosnan) are successful New York divorce attorneys who have never lost a case, but any resemblance between the two ends there. The daughter of a social icon, Audrey works for a top city firm and lives in a stylish apartment. She believes that divorce can and must be handled amicably and honestly. When things get stressful, she dashes into the bathroom for a Twinkie or two. Daniel, on the other hand, keeps his cases like his suits and his office – messy and dirty. Like Audrey, he’s convinced that people should put the passion they so often display for divorce into saving their marriage, thus avoiding the whole process. But unlike Audrey, when all else fails, this Irishman has no qualms about using dishonest tactics to win.
