Mr. & Mrs. Smith



Nick's Rating: 7/10

Verdict:
This movie is HOT! HOT! HOT!...not so much for the storyline but the casting of Pitt and Jolie delivers! For a moment you can't even tell who is hotter him or her? As much as i loved the Pitt/Aniston coupling, it must be said, this on screen couple is SIZZLING! Their chemistry was all that was needed-heck it was the movie! Effortless performances-I don't think any acting was done, none was needed anyway not with that chemistry. The transition from a boring couple to a couple hell bent on killing each other is exciting and definitely worth the watch! A definite must see.

Has great killer one-liners, the movie is actually funny. The action was explosive-something that would almost rival Bruckheimer movies and John Woo's action sequences.The kitchen fighting scenes between the murderous couple are lethal. You could feel the sudden lack of love!!

The ending felt a little rushed and a tad unbelievable-but then again this is hollywood.


Boxofficewise:
Obviously opened in the States at number one with a 50mil+ opening, and am sure worldwide by now its grossed over 100mil. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a sequel. Atleast the publicity didn't affect them, unlike Russel Crowe and Meg Ryan during "Proof of life."

Angelina Jolie: This should definitely awaken her box office status.
Brad Pitt: Undoubtedly, it is evident why he is my next fav actor after Al Pacino. You can never go wrong with any of his movies. He is one of those worthy actors in hollywood who have gone without an oscar.

Killer Lines:

to name but a few

1.Shrink: How often do you have sex?
Mr Smith: I don't understand the question.

2.Mrs Smith: There's this huge space between us, and it just keeps filling up with all the things we don't say to each other. What's that called?
Shrink: Marriage.

i was extremely skeptical when i watched this movie as to whether i would like it (Brangelina press was abit much)remember when Halle Berry went on a publicity filled blitz, even dragging her ex hottie Benet...well it didnt do much to help catwoman. I think i heard it referred to as a giant hairball. I agree with you, this movie was quite entertaining.

Nick & Afromusing,I'd been turned off the movie becoz of the hype surrounding the two stars...I really do like them & their talent but 80% of tv talked about them & not the movie. I guess it's worth seeing then:),,,and yes Nick, she's hott, super hott:))!
-Btw, I hope you both saw "Beyond Borders" starring Angelina Jolie? Wonderful, deep & very touching movie. Didn't receive much publicity in the US bcoz it's too smart, too real & too honest for the average US movie goer.

I havent watched this one yet, but its on my 'to watch' list.

@Akiey-watched the movie and it was greeeeatt. It had (un)expected twists and I dont understand either why it didnt get publicized.

They say the 'Brangelina' as you choose to call it Afromusing, should make for eye candy for both sexes, v shall z.
