Late Flashback Friday- Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005)

Appearances can often be deceiving. The most mundane looking couple could have a very exciting life and the most exciting looking couple could have a life that is dull as dull can be.

In Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005), John Smith (Brad Pitt) and Jane Smith (Angelina Jolie) appear to be the average, if not boring suburban couple. Five days a week they put on their suits and go to their average if not boring office jobs. On the weekends, they do what every normal suburban couple does.

But looks are deceiving. John and Jane are assassins and their jobs far from average or boring. Neither knows that the newest targets are each other. But when they find out the truth, some information that has been hidden may come to light to shake up this marriage.

This is the movie that brought together the couple that the tabloids call Brangelina. At the time, Brad Pitt was the other half of Friends star Jennifer Aniston.

The movie is not all bad, but knowing what we know now about the star’s off-screen relationship, it adds a new level of reality to their on-screen pairing.

Do I recommend it? I would put this one in the maybe category.
