Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen (USA, 2008, 96 min.).

When two hapless gym employees (Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt) discover a disc containing the memoirs of a former CIA analyst (John Malkovich), they see a chance to make a life-changing amount of money. Predictably, things whirl out of control for the comically inept duo and those in their orbit.
