What are some of the qualities of some of the best movies you’ve seen? Well-written dialogue, amazing actors, big explosions, a great love story, funny one-liners? Mr. & Mrs. Smith has all of that. I went into the movie already wanting to love it because it was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. I left the theater loving the two of them more and hoping for a sequel, a TV series, or at least rockin’ action figures.
First of all, the concept of putting the two most beautiful people on the planet in one movie together is pure genius. They could make a movie with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt playing shuffleboard at an old folk’s home and I’d go see it. Well, maybe I’d just put it on my Netflix list, but still….the two of them is a great casting choice.
Second, explosions. I’m not the typical girlie-girl who wants the love story and less loud, fiery explosions. I’d rather watch things blow up than watch a romantic love scene. Luckily for girls like me and for those that want the lovey-dovey stuff, this movie has both. Pitt and Jolie make an adorable couple. And they’re even more adorable when they’re trying to kill each other.
The storyline is a bit predictable. Not in the sense that you always know what’s going to happen next, but in the way that when something does happen, you think “Yea, that’s what makes sense.”
The co-stars were also excellent. Vince Vaughn, who I’ve never seen in a movie before, was hilarious. Mrs. Smith’s squad of tech geeks were decent, but not memorable. I was sad to see that Stephanie March, the wonderful actress that played A.D.A. Alex Cabot on “Law & Order:Special Victims Unit,” only had a few lines. It was nice to see, however, that the actress from Urban Legends: Final Cut is still getting work.
I’m not quite sure what else to say about this movie other than that everyone should see it. I’ve recommended it to everyone that would listen. It’s one of the few movies that I enjoyed so much I’d go see it in the theater again.
