Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mr. & Mrs. Smith works on almost every level and against all odds."
‑ Ken Tucker, New York Magazine
"Very good."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"One of the most entertaining and most successful movie star pictures of its decade."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Mr. and Mrs. Smith is a playful film, sort of a War of the Roses by way of True Lies, and it never tries to preach or give its characters some crisis of conscience."
‑ Nick Nunziata, CHUD
"If you're willing to believe your spouse when he tells you that the reason he's been staying out late at night is that he's a hitman, then Mr. & Mrs. Smith may be just the tongue-in-cheek thriller for you."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"The couple's dark, deadpan banter is amusing, particularly during a car chase in which they rapidly exchange some home truths. But there's a coldness to their characters that is never resolved."
‑ Amy Simmons, Time Out
"A movie so in love with itself it hardly needs us at all."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"The pretty onscreen union of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is the only thing "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" offers an audience beyond a relentlessly repetitive series of gunfights and car chases wherein so many bullets are fired that you feel like you're witnessing a"
‑ Cole Smithey,
"A sexy action romp with the impossibly beautiful Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Mr and Mrs Smith is a sizzler."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Simon Kinberg's script feels phoned in, while Doug Liman's direction, adept with the massive explosions which dot the film, utterly fails at generating any romantic magic."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Have we lost our minds and souls so completely to celebrity worship that drivel like Mr. and Mrs. Smith can thrive and prosper?"
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"The studio must have reasoned that Jolie and Brad Pitt are movie stars, so anything they do would be seen as fun and attractive -- and what could be more fun and attractive than their trying to kill each other and just about everybody else in the movie?"
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"For a retread of "True Lies" I expected much more."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A jovial, half-smart domestic comedy in which domesticity itself is a joke."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"A fun little action romp that will play well with the audience it is aiming for -- so long as they don't go in with any major expectations."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
