Trivia

When John first enters his office, you can clearly see a black suit, white shirt, and red tie, which is the hitman outfit from the popular video game. See more »

Goofs

When John Smith is firing the Widowmaker missile at Jane, the targeting screen shows latitude and longitude coordinates that place him somewhere in Alaska. When John is trying to break into the prison to retrieve "The Tank," his shown coordinates place him 350 miles off the coast of Spain. Also, if you time John Smith's movement in the pipe, and compare it to the updated coordinates, he moves over 900 feet in 11 seconds, about 55 miles per hour. And when he is climbing the vertical pipe, his coordinates should remain steady. Also, the likelihood of receiving a GPS signal underground in a pipe is slim to none. See more »

Energetic action flick, somewhat wonky near the end
21 September 2009 | by SparrowhispererSee all my reviews

Since going through most recent action movies is like chewing through cardboard, Mr. and Mrs. Smith is pleasantly energetic for an action flick. Mr. Smith and Mrs. Smith is good fun, and does a decent job of satisfying the occasional need for summer-movies.

The effectiveness of the film lies in the exploration of what happens to a failing marriage when the couple are at their wits end ... and ... for the first time, come to realize that the other is a professional assassin ... and ... subsequently push the ceiling on what is termed 'spousal abuse' ... and ... of course, get to play with guns.

The success of the film, however, lies in how Jolie and Pitt actually bother to exercise some of their acting talent. They look like they are having fun, and genuinely enjoy the other (surprise! surprise!). The chemistry is good, and the actors are super sexy, which is always a plus for any film.

The movie fails, naturally, when the ending summarily degenerates into what is expected of action-fare, the shootouts, gun battles, and kisses. Enjoyable, nonetheless, even on its final wonky legs.

(Note: it is also a shame that in a film with so much shooting that no one gets to shoot Mr. Vince Vaughn. My, is that guy a terrible actor who can't resist hiding himself.)
