October 18, 2008
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie hardly qualify as a latter-day William Powell and Myrna Loy, but they handle the Nick and Nora Charles-style zingers with enough snap that you can generally tell they're zingers.

As Jane and John Smith, Jolie and Pitt hit their movie-star stride. They complete each other.
May 12, 2006
Mr. & Mrs. Smith works on almost every level and against all odds.
February 9, 2006
The couple's dark, deadpan banter is amusing, particularly during a car chase in which they rapidly exchange some home truths. But there's a coldness to their characters that is never resolved.

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

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
June 24, 2005
It was precisely at the 70-minute mark, where Brad Pitt is repeatedly kicking Angelina Jolie in the stomach, that I figured, no. Stop hoping.
June 23, 2005
Have we lost our minds and souls so completely to celebrity worship that drivel like Mr. and Mrs. Smith can thrive and prosper?
June 13, 2005
Very good.
June 11, 2005
It's a love story not for the faint of heart. In other words, it's a lot like marriage.
June 11, 2005
Who knows what went on behind the screen between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, but what's on the screen is extremely entertaining.
June 11, 2005
The studio must have reasoned that Jolie and Brad Pitt are movie stars, so anything they do would be seen as fun and attractive -- and what could be more fun and attractive than their trying to kill each other and just about everybody else in the movie?
June 11, 2005
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie look like they had a terrific time making Mr. and Mrs. Smith -- but I certainly didn't have a good time watching it. Neither, I suspect, will many of you.
June 11, 2005
A movie so in love with itself it hardly needs us at all.
June 10, 2005
Mr. & Mrs. Smith will prove a long, hard slog for filmgoers who don't think that simply gazing at Pitt and Jolie constitutes a fun night out.
June 10, 2005
Essentially, Mr. & Mrs. Smith exists for the purpose of showing off the gorgeous faces and physiques of its two stars, and for giving its audience the dubious pleasure of watching them beat each other up.
June 10, 2005
A high-gloss, high-caliber domestic squabble, a lip-lock and load romance that might just as easily have been called 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith & Wesson.'
June 10, 2005
Mr. & Mrs. Smith is an awful movie with two very good-looking people in it.
June 10, 2005
Pitt and Jolie make sexy sparring partners, but they can't lift this leaden material.
June 10, 2005
It's not perfect. It's like a marriage.
