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
The film's original script was actually writer Simon Kinberg's thesis for his Masters in Fine Arts. See more »
When John and Jane have dinner at home, Jane serves a roast that John describes as "pot roast, my favorite." However, the slice of beef that ends up on his plate is medium rare. Pot roast is always thoroughly cooked and is therefore always served well-done. 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.

I find it quite hard to..i don't know..analyse this movie.
On one hand this could be a masterpiece, with the swirling clever cinematography and the obvious chemistry between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (as they hitched up in real life during the filming). But, on the other hand, this is a stupid film, just an action flick, trying to be emotional and meaningful but turned out trying to be a blockbuster.
I hope you see what i mean. I have rated this film 7, because of the reasons above, as the clever cinematography mixed with some good fun comedy and watchable action can't be that harmless can it. Can it? See for yourself.
