Married for five (or six) years, John (Brad Pitt) and Jane (Angelina Jolie) Smith seek marriage counseling in order to get their quiet, mundane marriage back on track. In flashback, they tell the therapist how they first met in Bogot, Colombia, married shortly afterwards, and set up housekeeping together, living a normal life in a normal suburb, and working normal jobs until they learn that they are both really assassins hired by competing firms and that their next targets are... each other.

The film is based on a script written by English-born American screenwriter Simon Kinberg, who came up with the idea after listening to several friends describing marriage therapy they were receiving.

He was in a different elevator. He rigged the camera to show him in another elevator and made them drop the empty one.

Pursued by their firms' assassins, the Smiths decide to hang together and bargain for their lives by giving them something they seem to want... Benjamin "The Tank" Danz (Adam Brody). They kidnap Danz from his high-security cell and take him to their motel room for questioning. Danz reveals that he was actually the bait being used by both companies to lure out the Smiths. Leaving Danz behind, John and Jane break into a KostMart and steal some clothes, guns, and Kevlar vests but are cornered into a garden shack by the assassins. Re-arming themselves and working together as a team, they manage to take out the rest of the assassins. In the final scene, John and Jane are back in the marriage counselor's office, discussing the challenges of their marriage, and John finally answers the sex question: "Ten."

The unrated version of Mr. & Mrs. Smith not only offers new story elements but action scenes as well. On the other hand, several scenes have been removed from the Director's Cut. A detailed comparison between both versions can be found here.
