Intolerable Cruelty (2003)

The closest anyone has come to re-animating the spirit of the great unsentimental romantic comedies of Hollywood past: the leads, and not some wiseguy sidekicks, actually get the heartlessly funny lines, and we think nothing less of them for it.
Of course, this is a Coen Bros. film, so they purposely fuck things up.
Still, it's a sharp script, and if you ignore all the postmodern bullshit, an agreeably funny movie, and I think Zeta-Jones has never been this good in anything else.
