[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.
July 6, 2005
...it's a romantic comedy with a body count.
July 5, 2005
While the ending gets way too noisy, the movie is quite enjoyable.
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.
June 26, 2005
...the story line was about as thin as an ice rink in the desert.
June 25, 2005
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.
June 25, 2005
It's so breezily managed by Simon Kinberg's script that you never give the movie's central coincidence a second thought.
June 25, 2005
Mr. & Mrs. Smith is one of those films that survives more or less on sheer star wattage alone.
June 25, 2005
A film with enough snap, crackle and pop to keep the gob of any sceptic shut for a couple of hours.
June 22, 2005
More attention is lavished on the fight and chase scenes than the relatively superficial message, but you don't go to a big budget summer movie in search of Ingmar Bergman.
June 19, 2005
Complaints about character triviality aside, if you're in assassin mode you might want to line up the Smiths in your sights for an explosive summertime escapade.
June 18, 2005
A dry, twisted commentary on marriage and intimacy.
June 17, 2005
The stars' sizzle plus dialogue to die for and stylish direction make Mr. and Mrs. Smith a summer hit.
June 16, 2005
Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and director Doug Liman team up for a perfect piece of snap-crackle-popcorn entertainment.
June 16, 2005
But this isn't about plot, it's about snappy banter and blowing stuff up! Silly fictions hitting each other, right?. What more do you want, Philosophy?
June 15, 2005
Somewhere among the impossibly athletic gunplay and impossibly witty sparring by two impossibly attractive leads is a sly, incisive metaphor for the modern American marriage.
June 15, 2005
The sharp dialogue is too often drowned out by the incessant explosions and automatic weapons fire.
June 15, 2005
since the dialogue is so spectacularly good, we care as much about these two facing their "relationship" as we do watching them, well, beat the crap out of each other.
June 14, 2005
...a stylish and slick romantic romp that is a sheer blast...a stimulating actioner that is quite funny and visually appetizing.
