Simon Kinberg's script feels phoned in, while Doug Liman's direction, adept with the massive explosions which dot the film, utterly fails at generating any romantic magic.

A fun little action romp that will play well with the audience it is aiming for -- so long as they don't go in with any major expectations.

The script is all beginning, with no middle and no end -- the action simply stops, and the credits roll.

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

They're hot, they're married, and they're trying to kill each other.

Part of the problem is the script's constant seesaw between sincerity and glibness.
June 25, 2005
Failing to make a commitment to character development or genre, Mr. & Mrs. Smith feels like a bad relationship that goes on way too long.
