The couple's dark, deadpan banter is amusing, particularly during a car chase in which they rapidly exchange some home truths. But there's a coldness to their characters that is never resolved.

The studio must have reasoned that Jolie and Brad Pitt are movie stars, so anything they do would be seen as fun and attractive -- and what could be more fun and attractive than their trying to kill each other and just about everybody else in the movie?

Essentially, Mr. & Mrs. Smith exists for the purpose of showing off the gorgeous faces and physiques of its two stars, and for giving its audience the dubious pleasure of watching them beat each other up.

A high-gloss, high-caliber domestic squabble, a lip-lock and load romance that might just as easily have been called 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith & Wesson.'

Their much-hyped kiss-kiss, bang-bang movie is an expensive time-waster, full of slow-motion explosions and big-scene payoffs that turn out to be duds.

There's no real kick to all the wanton destruction, no sense of real thrill or peril, because the movie, which was written by Simon Kinberg (and rewritten, and then rewritten some more during production) chickens out.

When you see this movie, you can understand why the rest of the world thinks Americans are crazy. Mr. and Mrs. Smith are both assassins who work for rival 'companies.' We're not supposed to ask whom they kill or why.
