Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie smolder in one of the most anticipated, sizzling action films ever made. After five (or six) years of vanilla-wedded bliss, ordinary suburbanites John and Jane Smith (Pitt and Jolie) are stuck in a rut the size of the Grand Canyonuntil the truth comes out! Unbeknownst to each other, they are both coolly lethal, highly paid assassins working for rival organizations. And when they discover they're each other's next target, their secret lives collide in a spicy, explosive mix of wicked comedy, pent-up passion, nonstop action and high-tech weaponry that gives an all-new meaning to "Till death do us part!"
Released amidst rumors of romance between costars Angelina Jolie and soon-to-be-divorced Brad Pitt, Mr. and Mrs. Smith offers automatic weapons and high explosives as the cure for marital boredom. The premise of this exhausting action-comedy (no relation to the 1941 Alfred Hitchcock comedy starring Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery) is that the unhappily married Smiths (Pitt and Jolie) will improve their relationship once they discover their mutually-hidden identities as world-class assassins, but things get complicated when their secret-agency bosses order them to rub each other out. There's plenty of amusing banter in the otherwise disposable screenplay by Simon Kinberg (xXx: State of the Union, Fantastic Four), and director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) gives Pitt and Jolie a slick, glossy superstar showcase that's innocuous but certainly never boring. It could've been better, but as an action-packed summer confection, Mr. and Mrs. Smith kills two hours in high style. --Jeff Shannon

Director Doug Liman tries to mimic the sophistication and pacing he used in "The Bourne Identity/Supremacy", but fails to generate any suspense. Without exotic locales and intrigue, the story comes off as nothing more than a high-tech domestic squabble. Further, there is not one original idea, as every scene is lifted from another movie.
Simon Kinberg's script takes an unbearably long time setting up the point that both partners are completely oblivious to the other's exploits. His attempt to pay homage to the romantic comedies of the 1930's is admirable, but the witty banter of the leads quickly becomes tiresome. Though there are some interesting twists, the narrative has more bullet holes than those on screen.
Both Pitt and Jolie are ultra-cool and share a sizzling chemistry, but Mr. & Mrs. Smith seems merely an excuse to pair two of Hollywood's most attractive players. They are pleasant to watch, but the entire production is as superficial as Hollywood itself. Rating: 5 out of 10.
dialogue,you name it.add to that the perfect choice of casting brad
Pitt and Angelina Jolie in the lead roles.the basic premise of the
story is that Jane (Angelina Jolie) and John Smith(Brad Pitt)are a
husband and wife who have become bored with their marriage.what the
they don't know is that each is a top assassin.and each has been
contracted to kill the other.all i can day is is if you're looking for
high octane action,comedy,romance,look no further.the chemistry between
Jolie and Pitt is so palpable it crackles.the action scenes will leave
you breathless,the witty dialogue is brilliant.Vince Vaughn plays
Eddie,friend to john and is hysterical in the comic relief dept.it
should come as no surprise that this a well crafted film,considering it
is directed by Doug(The Bourne Identity)Liman,another great action
picture.The great writing comes courtesy of Simon Kinburg,who also
wrote X-men-the Last stand.as for "Mr and Mrs Smith" a perfect 5/5
The film starts with a bored couple that goes to a marriage counselor in order to do something to save their marriage. They seem a couple like many others, so immersed in their routine that they hardly pay attention to each other. John Smith (Brad Pitt) is an architect, Jane Smith (Angelina Jolie) works with computers. They have dinner at seven o'clock everyday, and don't talk too much.
But... not all is at it seems in their apparently ordinary lives. As a matter of fact, both are assassins working for rival companies. Neither Jane nor John knows about the extracurricular activities of their other half, despite the fact that they have been married for six years. But soon enough they will find out, as both are assigned the same target, "The tank" (an adorable Adam Brody). Will things get worse before they get better?. Can we expect to enter into a combat zone when the Smiths start to solve their domestic issues?. And will we enjoy it?. See the movie, and find out!.
What more can I say about "Mr. & Mrs. Smith", so you have more elements to decide whether you will watch it?. Let's see... To start with, this movie has lots of action (guns, knives and bombs included), so if you don't like action movies I don't advice you to choose it. Also, there is sharp dialogue that is surprisingly funny sometimes, mostly when the Smiths are bickering (thank you, Simon Kinberg, for the screenplay). What is more, you can always enjoy Brad and Angelina's on-screen chemistry, that is really outstandingly good.Read more ›
The plot is pretty basic and nothing we haven't seen before. Girl meets boy, girl marries boy, girl and boy try to kill each other. For the first six years of their marriage, John Smith (Pitt) and his lovely wife Jane (Jolie) are completely unaware that their partner is, like themselves, a high-level assassin. How they go traipsing all over the world killing people and still manage to return in time for 7:00 dinner every night is just one of many questions the writer chose to blissfully ignore. They really have little reason to suspect one another, though, because their suburban home lifestyle is exceedingly boring. Whatever spark of romance they once shared, it's long gone by this point.Read more ›

Lots of fun and adventure throughout this one, my alter ego would get along very well with Mr. Smith but I would have a hard time keeping with to Mrs Smith lol. Great flickPublished on April 19 2014 by Mark Lightheart
