Intolerable Cruelty (2003)
Miles Massey refers to his office as "war room" (in a conversation with his client Rex Rexroth).
The show "Sands of Time" appears modelled after it.
Sounds of Dave's pod as he tries to rescue Frank are used in the scene where Clooney speaks to the (very) senior partner.
Miles's "Love is good" speech is started in the same style and tone as Gordon Gekko's "Greed is good" speech.
scene where doctor show gets Clooney's attention appears to be an inside joke to his days on that show.
The scene where Clooney's character visits the senior partner has the same music (Mozart's Requiem) and similar lighting as the scene where the Dude is summoned to the Big Lebowski's living room; also, the soap opera that stars Billy Bob Thornton is entitled "The Sands of Time", a reference to The Stranger's speech at the end of 'Lebowski'.
Clooney's look after waking up; also, obsessed with teeth as his character in OBWAT with hair
1. Scene at the beginning when G. Rush comes home and sees the van of the adulterer. 2. Next scene when the fast car drives by (with RR & his girlfriend).
