Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Guest Author - Rain Battle

In a brand new romantic action comedy directed by Doug Liman ("The Bourne Supremacy"), John and Jane Smith are a married couple headed for an iceberg due to extreme boredom with their safe relationship and each other's dullness. Little do they know, they are both two of the world's top secret assassins and they have just been hired to kill each other.

John Smith (Brad Pitt) is one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Although he still loves his wife, he misses her sensual side and her mystery. Jane Smith (Angelina Jolie) is also one of the most lethal assassins in the world. She feels her husband's lack of interest in her and also has little interest in him, feeling she knows everything about him. As it turns out, the two actually know very little about one another and they discover just how liittle they know when they are each hired to take the other out as a primary threat.

When they discover the truth about each other, the initial reaction is to follow through on their orders. Gradually they begin to question the wisdom in that decision and wonder if they can actually work together and maybe even save their marriage.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith is a true Hollywood blockbuster, boasting an enormous cast, huge budget, two major actors, and cool special effects. Of course, there was also the behind the scenes drama of rumors that Jolie and Pitt were romantically involved during his split from Jennifer Anniston. Although the two lead actors certainly steamed things up on screen, don't believe all of the rumors you hear. The rumored nudity is not in this version, but the pair definitely have an amazing chemistry in the film.

Brad Pitt shines in this role as a droll husband only too eager to get away from his boring married life to the action and adventure of his secret one. He is muscular and gorgeous, funny and sexy in this movie and a pleasure to watch. Ever since "Tomb Raider" Angelina Jolie has proven that she is a great action star. Glamorous in some of her scenes, rough and tumble in others, she vascillates easily and is too much fun to watch when she dons her action gear and straps on a weapon. Vince Vaughn was very funny in his role, and Kerry Washington ("Ray"), and Adam Brody ("The O.C." television), also made notable appearances.

Overall, not a very strong plot, but great chemistry, lots of action, jokes, and stunts - this movie is just fun. Over the past week, I debated between considering this film a romantic comedy and an action flick. When the New York times described it as a "typical romantic comedy" I decided to review it for you romance fans. Romance? Yes, there's some here - between the explosions, chase scenes, and quick wit, there's actually an underlying theme of desperation to save a relationship that was once truly special.

Extra Extra! Tidbits About the Movie...
