Mr. and Mrs. Smith is an enjoyable but forgettable bit of fluff. The two leads seem to be having fun (the off screen romance might have had something to do with it) and some of the action set-pieces are extravagantly over the top, but it never engages enough and the premise isn’t exploited in the right ways for my liking. It has a similar set up to True Lies (which itself is a remake of a La Totale!), but I preferred that film, which has a similar level of over the top action, but balances that with some broad yet likeable humour. That’s not to say Mr. And Mrs. Smith takes itself seriously, but the comedy didn’t work for me, other than in a few of Vince Vaughn’s scenes. Also, James Cameron has a better handle on the carnage than Doug Liman does, with True Lies trumping this in the violence and explosions stakes.
