When the beautiful Marylin Rexroth (Catherine Zeta-Jones) obtains recorded evidence that her wealthy husband Rex is cheating on her, she files for divorce. But Rex hires top divorce lawyer Miles Massey (George Clooney), requesting him that Marylin gets nothing in the divorce. Massey manages to achieve this request by proving that Marilyn schemed to marry for money rather than for love from the very start, and she is left penniless. Surprisingly, Marylin returns some months later with a request of her own: she is engaged to marry a dimwitted Texan millionaire, and to prove that she is marrying for love rather than money this time she will sign the “Massey contract”, an ironclad pre-nuptial agreement that will once again leave her penniless if she divorces. Massey wonders whether the scheming Marylin changed her skin- or her plans.

And then, a government agent approaches him with a request for information, and Mitch understands that his life will never be the same. Based on the John Grisham novel.
