Burn After Reading is a comedy that makes fun of almost everything, reminding you that almost none of it is laughing matter.

Although there are a couple of vaguely amusing moments, it fails as a comedy because it just isn't funny, and it fails as a thriller because it just isn't suspenseful and it fails as entertainment of any kind because it is all so ludicrously improbable.
