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

OK, I'll go first. Um... Let me say, uh, we don't really need to be here. See, we've been married for five years.
Five, six years.

This film is a hoot, after the of so serious (but enjoyable) Star Wars and KoH, Mr and Mrs Smith rollicks on to the screen for two hours of unbelievable but fabulous fun. Yes, I've read some of the other comments, I'd have to question whether some of these people really have been to the "preview screenings" they claim, or just seen the trailer and have an axe to grind, chip on their shoulder, etc.... their comments are always so general I can't help but feel they are basing their comments purely on the trailer.
I saw it in a full house with cinema owners, industry and press - even the film critics came out with huge smiles on their faces, everyone had a great time, the script is full of great one liners, finally an action film that all our wives will enjoy as much as we simple boys.
Doug Liman, thankyou.
