The film that destroyed a marriage, but gave way to probably the biggest one, afterwards. Now, yes, I know that Mr. & Mrs. Smith isn’t a cinematic classic. But it has definitely been one of my favorites to watch in the past years. It’s incredibly witty. It’s charming. It’s very seductive. It’s entertaining. Just like the main stars.
Basically, it’s not a film with characters, it’s a film about Brad Pitt and Angie Jolie. The plot is simple, no major twists. And obviously, the film itself admits it’s just for fun when you see Adam Brody wearing a “Fight Club” shirt, the copied tango scene from “True Lies,” and the copied tea cup/wine bottle from “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.” None the less, it’s a ‘must own’ for any film collector. Many other actors and actresses were considered for the roles of John and Jane Smith. From Will Smith and Catherine Zeta-Jones to Johnny Depp and Cate Blanchett. Yet, in the end, I personally couldn’t imagine any other duo playing Mr. and Mrs. Smith other than Brad and Angie. But Hollywood rumors are floating around that another Mr. & Mrs. Smith is in the making, with a new couple dubbed, "Mr. & Mrs. Jones."
