Storyline

John and Jane Smith are a normal married couple, living a normal life in a normal suburb, working normal jobs...well, if you can call secretly being assassins "normal". But neither Jane nor John knows about their spouse's secret, until they are surprised to find each other as targets! But on their quest to kill each other, they learn a lot more about each other than they ever did in five (or six) years of marriage. Written by Anonymous

Sharp, Witty, Excellent!
7 June 2005 | by (Trinidad) – See all my reviews

From the opening scene with Pitt and Jolie and the unseen therapist, it was clear that this movie was going to be a cut above the usual fare. It did not disappoint. Sharp, witty, smart writing, excellent performances. I'm not a fan of either actor, especially Ms. Jolie, but I must admit they both impressed me in this one. Great support from Vince Vaughn as well. Effective soundtrack, too.

The movie is like an extended metaphor for the trials and tribulations of modern marriage. Fortunately it does not lay its message on too thickly.

Yes, it does have quite a few plot holes and is a bit long - but all in all I enjoyed it.

PS - what happened to the "steamy sex scene" with Pitt and Jolie? Was it censored? The movie still worked well without it.
