    Plot
      Many married couples have secrets, but one pair of lovebirds discover they've both been living dangerous secret lives in this action thriller laced with comedy. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and play Jane Smith and John Smith, a suburban couple whose marriage has started to go a bit stale after five or six years. Both wish for more excitement in their relationship, but as it happens, each of them is finding plenty of thrills elsewhere. Both Jane and John are world-class assassins who will take on perilous missions for the right price, but neither is aware of the other's secret life - Jane thinks her husband runs a successful construction company, and John believes his wife works on Wall Street. However, when John and Jane are both assigned to take out the same target, one Benjamin Danz (Adam Brody), they become aware of each other's secret lives, and suddenly both their careers and their marriage go through some dramatic and potentially deadly changes. Mr. and Mrs. Smith also stars Vince Vaughn as an assassin with John's company who still lives with his mother and Kerry Washington as one of Jane's associates. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Review

        Mr. and Mrs. Smith is a first-rate piece of Hollywood blockbuster craftsmanship. Slick in the best sense of the word, the film seems effortless. By underplaying, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie consistently get laughs during the lengthy opening act of the film that establishes their stifling marriage. Director Doug Liman establishes their cold, ornate suburban home without lingering on it, allowing the surroundings to have the same suffocating effect on the viewer that it does on the characters. The film is not exactly deep, but it does offer more depth than most films like it. Liman and company have taken time to make the audience care about the characters, and provided enough thematic subtext about the nature of marriage. Because of this, the flamboyant action sequences have an extra kick. The car chases and shoot-outs generate excitement and laughs without ever sacrificing clarity. The expert editing not only allows the viewer to understand where everybody is and why each person acts the way they do, but also allows the comedic moments to register without slowing down the action. In the skillful hands of Doug Liman, a director who knows how to stage action scenes and comedy with equal aplomb, Mr. and Mrs. Smith offers something more than just another piece of Hollywood product without sacrificing any of the fun. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
