John Reviews Mr. & Mrs. Smith 8/10

A film like Mr. & Mrs. Smith has a high potential for let down. Big names. Big Explosions. Big marketing campaign. Yup… expectations were high. But I stand here before you now to tell you beyond any shadow of a doubt… IT DELIVERS!!!!

I had my doubts going into this film. The first 30 seconds totally won me over!

By now you all know that the premise of the film is that a married couple (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) are international assassins… but neither of them know that about the true profession of the other.

This film is smart, funny and quite charming all at the same time. Throw in some great action sequences and you’ve got a winner.

I’ve got to tell ya folks, I have no idea why this movie is getting as many negative reviews as it is. Currently Rotten Tomatoes has Mr. & Mrs. Smith rated at a 63%. I’m stunned. I’ve gone over the film again and again in my head and I just can’t imagine why so many critics are knocking it.

Both Pitt and Jolie are fantastic and Vince Vaughn give some excellent comic relief.

Does the plot have some holes? Yes, absolutely. However, the goal of this film was not to be a solid thriller/drama… it’s sole intention was to entertain. And for me, from start to finish Mr. & Mrs. Smith entertained the crap out of me.

Go see it, enjoy it, then see it again. I give Mr. & Mrs. Smith an 8/10.
