What sounds in principle like a pitch for a TV pilot instead plays like an old-fashioned romantic comedy with updated hardware.

A preening, superficial film that expects you to appreciate its smart concept without noticing the stupid execution.

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.

There's something entertaining about watching two adults shooting at each other and destroying their belongings all in the name of therapy.

[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.

Less like therapy and more like good ol' fashioned domestic -- and audience -- abuse.

While the ending gets way too noisy, the movie is quite enjoyable.

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.

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

July 2, 2005
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.

The romantic comedy parts of Mr. & Mrs. Smith work better than the action/thriller parts. But nonetheless, it's a fun ride at the movies that's sure to please everyone.

It's so breezily managed by Simon Kinberg's script that you never give the movie's central coincidence a second thought.

Part of the problem is the script's constant seesaw between sincerity and glibness.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith is one of those films that survives more or less on sheer star wattage alone.
