A preening, superficial film that expects you to appreciate its smart concept without noticing the stupid execution.
| Original Score: D
une bonne excuse pour se mettre à l'abris de la canicule pendant deux heures, mais demeure trop simplet pour que l'on puisse parler d'un effort satisfaisant à long terme.
| Original Score: 5/10
There's something entertaining about watching two adults shooting at each other and destroying their belongings all in the name of therapy.
| Original Score: 3/4
[E]xpertly entertaining on several levels ... but what really revs up the movie and launches it into comedy heaven are the performances of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
If you can imagine an unhappy marriage as a house of flying daggers and torrents of verbal spousal abuse transformed by a comic vision into fusillades of bullets, it will strike a chord.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Less like therapy and more like good ol' fashioned domestic -- and audience -- abuse.
| Original Score: C
...it's a romantic comedy with a body count.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
While the ending gets way too noisy, the movie is quite enjoyable.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
There is clearly some intentional satire here, but there's too much attention paid to the spectacle and not enough to what little substance there is.
The movie is best when it's about a married couple who inhabit action movies for a living, and falters when it wants to be an action movie itself.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Mr & Mrs Smith is a revenge fantasy that hinges on murderous thoughts. It is bookended by marriage guidance counselling with the stars, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
| Original Score: 2/5
A lark, a loud, good-looking, escapist, pointless laugh of a film that's more about the beautiful people in its two lead roles than it is about plot or characters.
| Original Score: 71/100
If violence is truly the only way to resurrect matrimonial bliss then perhaps we should seriously consider a constitutional amendment banning heterosexual marriage.
They're hot, they're married, and they're trying to kill each other.
| Original Score: 2/4
...the story line was about as thin as an ice rink in the desert.
It's so breezily managed by Simon Kinberg's script that you never give the movie's central coincidence a second thought.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith is one of those films that survives more or less on sheer star wattage alone.
| Original Score: 7/10
Part of the problem is the script's constant seesaw between sincerity and glibness.
A film with enough snap, crackle and pop to keep the gob of any sceptic shut for a couple of hours.
Failing to make a commitment to character development or genre, Mr. & Mrs. Smith feels like a bad relationship that goes on way too long.
| Original Score: 1/4
