Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)


Over all a very enjoyable film, if you have been or are married then you will get a whole lot more out of this film then those who have yet to take the plunge. This film is like spy version of "War of the Roses". Except for all they try, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fail to create that stage chemistry like Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner did nearly every film, they still have some great chemistry, but it is forgettable. There are some classic moments in this film, especially the dance/frisk scene, but they are over shadowed by a pretty large amount of cliche moments which is what takes this film from what could have potentially been a classic film to just a good watch!

The Plot:

John and Jane Smith are a normal married couple, living a normal life in a normal suburb and working normal jobs, too. However, in reality, John and Jane are both skilled assassins working for different firms, both the best in their field, each concealing their true profession from the other. When both are assigned to kill a man named Benjamin Danz, nicknamed "The Tank", they encounter each other on the job and discover the truth. Both employers task one Smith to eliminate the other, and each must choose between their personal and professional lives.
