You can't accuse the Coen Brothers of churning out the same old stuff.

Winning multitudinous Oscars for their dark and violent drama No Country for Old Men, they follow it up with the ludicrous, often absurd, and frequently hilarious, Burn After Reading.

Brad Pitt spearheards the funny here, his airhead fitness instructor Chad is pure gold.

The rest of the cast are no slackers either.

It's been far long between John Malkovich films, and Coen regular Frances McDormand is always worth the ticket price.

Take a crazy pill or two and let Burn After Reading entertain for a few hours, three and half stars.
