Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Critics Consensus

Although this action-romance suffers from weak writing and one too many explosions, the chemistry generated by onscreen couple Pitt and Jolie is palpable enough to make this a thoroughly enjoyable summer action flick.

All Critics (212) | Top Critics (47) | Fresh (126) | Rotten (86)

  • 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.

  • Mr. & Mrs. Smith works on almost every level and against all odds.

    May 12, 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

Audience Reviews for Mr. & Mrs. Smith

  • Mar 25, 2015
    It may be unfair to say, but its easily admitted that the most interesting ploy this film can rely on was the media storm surrounding "THE affair" that led to "THE Hollywood couple to be" Brangelina. As a matter of fact, the film is actually rather good and the playful yet genuine chemistry berween Pitt and Jolie excuses the ludicrous plot and reliance on marketing gimmicks. The film really isn't a serious one, but it is a sexy one. A defiantly proud saturday night date film.

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith is a messy and convoluted action film from director Doug Liman. The story follows a husband and wife that each discovers that the other is a private assassin for a competing company. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie lead the cast and have incredible chemistry together. But the story is complete garbage and makes no sense. Yet Pitt and Jolie have enough charisma to keep the audience engaged, and Liman does an excellent job at staging exciting and thrilling action scenes. Mr. & Mrs. Smith works as a popcorn flick, but it has no substance to it.

    A mindless action flick without any good writing. There were too many fight scenes and explosion but less time developing the relationship of Brangelina. The off screen relationship of the two is much more interesting than the plot itself. Random use of one liners really decreased the artistic intention of the film, making it a careless blockbuster.

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is a great pair but I was bothered by the distracting romance mixed with pointless violence. They're both agents who happened to get married and then they both play games with each other and then finally decide to team up with one another. Stuff like that bares no interest to me at all and that pretty much sums up my thoughts on this picture.
