Paula, Cy and I went to see Mr. and Mrs. Smith tonight. It’s not a great movie – my major complaint being the start-stop pacing – but it is a heck of a lot of fun. There are some awkward puns, some neat in-jokes, and about 15 million bullets, but mostly there’s the Brad Pitt – Angelina Jolie chemistry. I’m not actually a particularly big fan of either of them (but now that I think about it, Brad Pitt was truly amazing in Twelve Monkeys, Kalifornia, Snatch, True Romance, and Fight Club, so I guess I’m letting some of his poorer movies, like the truly awful The Devil’s Own, taint my opinion of his skills) but they had great chemistry in this movie.
And I don’t care what Cy says, Angelina looked dead hot. I don’t think she’s ever looked better.
