Instantly forgettable, extremely enjoyableBy Tim Turner from Manchester , 11 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]No-one will win any Oscars for this one, and I'll probably have forgotten about this movie in a week. But while it's on, 'Mr and Mrs Smith' is a cracking piece of entertainment. We went to see it on the basis that Doug Liman had made three good pictures ('Swingers', 'Go' and 'The Bourne Identity') and the two stars are usually good value for money. The logic is sound. If you don't like Pitt's excitable boyish persona and Jolie's smouldering, slightly perverse image, you won't like this film. Virtually plotless, with one-liners instead of proper dialogue and built around a succession of effective set pieces, the film is built on the enormous charisma of the two stars, and that turns out to be more than enough. There are a few real surprises (like the ferocity of the Smith's fight with each other halfway through), some genuinely hilarious moments (listen carefully for the joke about 'Fantasy Island'), and it moves along at a cracking pace without ever really drawing breath. It's no classic, but who cares, the film's job is to entertain and it does that perfectly well.

The lights are on, but nobody's homeBy Electricvic (88 reviews) from London , 11 Jan 2010Pitched as a tongue-in-cheek comedy built around the uber-glamorous pairing of Brad Pitt and Angellna Jolie, Mr and Mrs Smith is the cinematic equivalent of fast food. It's presumably designed to tickle your tastebuds, but has all the nutritional value of cardboard.
How the makers must have enjoyed coming up with the concept - they are married, and both kill people secretly for a living, and neither of them knows what the other does for a living! There is no known universe where this wafer-thin premise would stand up. If the film had any jokes (there are none) or if there was any kind of story, this film might reach the dizzy heights of being mildly diverting.
Instread, it's hard to convey what a rancid confection this is: full of mindless violence, devoid of emotion, with ludicrously stereotyped characters, and an unnecessary cameo from the boorish Vince Vaughan which actually drags it down even further.

Carlsberg dont do domesticsBy scotskiwi1876 (3 reviews) from Cowdenbeath , 11 Dec 2009really good. good acting, good story, plenty of action and seeing them beat the crap out of each other was brilliant.
Mr & Mrs SmithBy chogely (40 reviews) from Oxford , 01 Dec 2009This movie was better than I expected, a little naff, but not in a really bad way. So obvious to anyone that there was more than the story line going on between the main characters !
