Mr. & Mrs. Smith

'Awkward' is probably the best word I could use to describe the on screen chemisty between this supposedly married couple of 5 or 6 years. While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are fine actors respectively, together they just didn't sell it. Another viewer I overheard as we were making our way out of the theatre commented that they had a "totally unrealistic relationship", which I have to agree with. For two supposed spies/hitmen to not realize that they are each living a fictitious life with one another is somewhat ridiculous. Where did they park their instincts?

The worst of the unrealistic points of this movie has to be when Mr. and Mrs. Smith face off. There is just something disturbing about a husband smashing his wife up against the wall and repeated blows to her abdomen. But I don't want to spoil all of the fun here, let's just say that there are two saving graces in this film, Jolie's ass whooping fight scenes and
Vince Vaughan's character is a hoot! I wouldn't have thought that he could shine any brighter than he did in Be Cool, but once again Vaughan has captured my heart as the whacked out underdog in this role.

I think that this movie is somewhat ill-suited for the kiddies, the violence and the occasional profanity is really driven more towards the teenagers and up crowd.

You hit the nail right on the head. This movie was a disappointment.

Dear Dumas,

First of all I'd like to thank you for your kind words about our blog

My nick is Jota Souza and I'm almost a Canadian fellow myself.

I was born in Rio de Janeiro and went to Vancouver when I was six month old and lived there (together with my parents who went there on a schollarship) till I was five years old.

From which city are you from? I suppose (by your name Dumas) that might be some place on the French side (Montreal or Quebec). Is it true?

Well, from now on, I'll be (together with my friend Aldrin Mazzei) a constant visitor of your blog page Reel 2 Reel.

Congratulations! It is really awesome!!!

Best wishes
Jota Souza
