Movie Info

In Hitchcock's rare foray into comedy (courtesy of a wittily risque script by Norman Krasna), Mr. Smith (Robert Montgomery) makes the mistake of telling Mrs. Smith (Carole Lombard) that if he had it to do all over again, he might not have married her. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Smith discovers that his marriage is invalid. Rather than say goodbye, the newly aroused Mr. Smith attempts to entice Mrs. Smith into the bedroom, thrilled at the prospect of an "illicit" romance. But Mrs. Smith has also … More

Critic Reviews for Mr. & Mrs. Smith

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4)

Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery are teamed successfully here in a light and gay marital farce.

The result is a chucklesome comedy that fails to mount into a coruscating wave of laughter.

A gentle crazy comedy.

Many 'minor' Hitchcocks turn out to be intriguing films once you forgive them for not being thrillers.

Some sparkling moments but this rare Hitchcock comedy farce is hit and miss.

Empire Magazine

It's a cute film, not nearly as funny as most of Lombard's other comedies, but there's enough good humor in Mr. & Mrs. Smith to make it pleasant.

Audience Reviews for Mr. & Mrs. Smith

What's glib here is what's not said by the principals, Lombard and Montgomery, fully adapting to Hitch's trick of conveying thoughts with a glance. Unfortunately one wishes for more oomph, script-wise. Lombard, as ever, effervescence itself.

The only way I can rationalize the steaming pile of shit that is known as Mr. & Mrs. Smith was that Alfred Hitchcock had no idea what to do for his next movie or he needed to make a really big step back before taking many steps forward in the coming years. I love screwball comedies from this era but Mr. & Mrs. Smith is disappointing. Compound the fact that Hitchcock made it (comedy wasn't his specialty admittedly) and you're talking a borderline crime against humanity. Carole Lombard was admittedly beautiful but crazy as a shithouse rat to the point where I almost shut this down in the first half hour. I was filled with rage at how shitty the characters were and how the whole resolution was tacked on at the very end. I think I actually would've been happier if one of them died at the end. Watch with e x t r e m e caution and incredibly low expectations. Mr. & Mrs. Smith had a few funny moments but they didn't outweigh the painful and embarrassing ones.

Forget that stupid movie with Jolie and Pitt, this is the real Mr. & Mrs. Smith! Hitchcock, unlikely enough, brings us a romantic comedy! It's really enjoyable, I liked it.
