Mr. and Mrs. Smith
If you're not in the mood for an action flick, it would probably be best to avoid this one. After all, that's all it really is: an action movie with a reasonably clever premise. The film takes normal marital friction and amplifies it to the point of comic ridiculousness. Most couples keep little details from each other, but in this one it's that they're both assassins. Every couple fights, but in this one they fight with guns. Juliette got a little bored, but I thought that it was pretty well paced. I suppose if you're not into long fight scenes, though, it could get quite stale in places. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie managed decent chemistry, although I always find Jolie a little too cold and a little too into herself. I'd say she did better than average in this one, though; you could tell she was trying. Juliette pointed out--and I agreed-- that Brad Pitt had excellent timing.
