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
Many of the scenes from the trailer were not in the movie, including Brad Pitt riding a bike while shooting and Keith David ordering someone to "bring in everyone," after finding out "it's the Smiths". See more »
When John uses a pipe wrench in a fight, he grabs one pipe wrench and swings it like a bat (using both hands) and moments later he is seen waving a pipe wrench in each hand, flailing them around like nunchucks. How he got the other pipe wrench was not shown. See more »

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.
