It's no secret that the Coen Brothers are an aquired taste, but this is great return to their screwball roots. Every single character in this movie gets great laughs, especially Brad Pitt who steals the show as a dancing, retarded, sport drinking fitness instructor. The rest of the cast gives great performances, there are many twists turns and downright WTF scenes that are ingenious. I won't gove away anything because telling the best parts of this movie give away the story, but only the Coen's can write something this messed up, this dark, this stupid....and work it to near perfection. I loved the direction as well. Burn After Reading is a hilarious, ingenious black spy thriller/comedy (more comedic). Thumbs way up!
