Mr. & Mrs. Smith Reviews
So in the movie, the leads find out each other's true identities and must kill one another. Right away this is terrible. Like, OF COURSE they're not gonna kill each other. We're forced to watch a tedious house fight scene where they beat the crap out of each other and the ENTIRE time I'm thinking "Why is this necessary? OF COURSE they're not gonna kill each other. OF COURSE they're gonna have wild make-up sex." I was reminded of those scenes in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl where the good pirates fight the UNDEAD bad pirates who can't be killed. What is the point of fighting them when they're immortal? Why are we even watching this? Why was it written this way?
The fun begins, of course, when they each discover that fact after each is given the same target, and fail to deliver said target and are then given a short period of time to eliminate the competition (aka each other).
This is also the film in which, during the filming of, the whole Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt-Jennifer Anniston kerfuffle started, which probably helped give it a ratings boost (after all, there's no such thing as bad publicity, right?)
Pitt & Jolie.. awesome couple, stunning chemistry.. but when things get exciting this movie just left it unsaid.
