It may be disappointing to many of the followers of Norman Krasna, Alfred Hitchcock and Carole Lombard who expected extreme brilliance from that trio, but there's enough fun in it to send you home happy with your entertainment.
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.
Filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock has infused Mr. and Mrs. Smith with a light and breezy feel that certainly complements Norman Krasna's less-than-substantial screenplay...
Some sparkling moments but this rare Hitchcock comedy farce is hit and miss.
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.
A bland screwball comedy that never kicks into high gear.
When all's said and done, the most that can be remarked about it is how odd it is that this Hitchcock picture is so very predictable.
Hitchcock's foray into screwball comedy is breezy fun
Hitchcock would later admit that he had no idea what he was doing out of his element.
A married couple that enjoys playful sparring with one another venture into deep water when they discover a bureaucratic oversight has rendered them not married. 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, is 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.
Just a really odd movie for Hitchcock to do. It isnâ€™t all that bad, itâ€™s obviously shot well, itâ€™s just really mediocre. The plot is really flat and unoriginal, itâ€™s a sub-par attempt at screwball comedy. None of the performances are all that noteworthy, but none are bad. Itâ€™s probably the lowest point in Hitchcockâ€™s career.
