Mr. & Mrs. Smith is a 2005 American action comedy film[1] directed by Doug Liman and written by Simon Kinberg. The film stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a bored upper middle class married couple surprised to tướng learn that they are assassins belonging to tướng competing agencies, and that they have been assigned to tướng kill each other. Besides being a box office hit, Mr. & Mrs. Smith also established Pitt and Jolie's personal relationship.[2][3]

The film was released in the United States on June 10, 2005. It received mixed reviews from critics, but has since grossed $487.3 million worldwide.


John, a construction executive, and Jane, a tech tư vấn consultant, are answering questions during marriage counselling. The couple has been married for five or six years, but their marriage is on the rocks. They talk about how they first met in Bogotá, Colombia, claiming to tướng be together to tướng avoid being questioned by Colombian authorities; the two fell in love and got married.

In reality, John and Jane are both skilled field operatives and work for separate contract-killing firms; they are both among the best in their field and adept at concealing their true profession from the other.

The Smiths live in a large Colonial Revival house in the Thành Phố New York suburbs keeping up appearances by reluctantly socializing with their "conventionally" wealthy neighbors. Underneath their cover stories, John and Jane balance their marriage, which is apparently mundane—after a few years, both agree it is becoming dull and suffocating—with their secretive careers. After they are both assigned to tướng kill DIA prisoner Benjamin "the Tank" Danz in a prison transfer, they lập cập into each other on the job and the hit is botched.

Danz survives; John and Jane are assigned to tướng kill each other instead. After attempts on each other's lives escalate, the Smiths' conflict ends in a massive shootout which nearly demolishes their home page. During a protracted, evenly-matched fight, they pull guns aiming at each other's heads. John declines to tướng shoot saying that he loves Jane and lays his gun down. Jane discovers that she cannot shoot John either and they spend a passionate night together. The renewed Smith partnership is quickly threatened by their employers who join forces to tướng eliminate the couple.

Eddie, John's best friend and co-worker, turns down a bounty of $400,000 for each of them. The Smiths find themselves under attack from an army of assassins. Their pockmarked house is blown up, and the Smiths steal their neighbour's minivan and are able to tướng destroy their attackers' pursuing armoured sedans while they bicker about their fighting styles and personal secrets they have discovered about each other. They meet with Eddie and decide to tướng save their marriage.

The Smiths kidnap Danz from his high-security prison to tướng use as a bargaining chip. He tells them that he is merely bait and an intern hired by each of their employers after they discovered the Smiths were married; his clients hoped the Smiths would kill each other. Discarding each of their contingency plans the two make a last stand together, fending off an assault inside a home page decorating store by heavily armed operatives. The film ends with the couple meeting their marriage counselor again; the Smiths say their marriage is thriving.



Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman were originally cast as the leads when Doug Liman received the script. However, Kidman's shooting schedule conflicted with Liman's at the time and she had to tướng exit the film, and Pitt dropped out as a result.[4] Liman then considered Will Smith and Catherine Zeta-Jones as the leads; Johnny Depp and Cate Blanchett were also phối to tướng be cast. Pitt returned when Gwyneth Paltrow was cast as Jane. Paltrow later quit leading to tướng Angelina Jolie coming on board.[5][6] Gwen Stefani also auditioned for Jane Smith.[7]


Screenwriter Simon Kinberg had an idea for a screenplay after listening to tướng a couple of his friends who went to tướng marriage therapy. He thought it sounded "aggressive and mercenary" and felt "it would make an interesting template for a relationship inside of an action film."

The production eventually exceeded its budget by $26 million, forcing Liman to tướng use money from his own savings trương mục to tướng build a phối in his mother's garage. He then destroyed it with a hand grenade.[8]

Critical response[edit]

Review aggregation trang web Rotten Tomatoes gave Mr. & Mrs. Smith an approval rating of 60% based on 212 reviews, with an average score of 6.10/10. The site's critics consensus reads, "Although this action-romance suffers from weak writing and one too many explosions, the chemistry generated by onscreen couple Pitt and Jolie is palpable enough to tướng make this a thoroughly enjoyable summer action flick."[12] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out to tướng reviews from mainstream critics, the film has received a rating average of 55 out of 100, based on 41 critics, which indicated "mixed or average reviews".[13] Audiences surveyed by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to tướng F scale.[14]

Simon Braund of Empire gave the film a positive review, describing it as "a full-on action flick, subversive rom-com and weapons-grade star vehicle that's drenched in Tinseltown glitz, from a director who knows how to tướng put the money on the screen while his tongue's firmly in his cheek".[15] Daniel Saney of Digital Spy gave the film four stars out of five, saying "Its ideas are often borrowed, and it's hardly deep and meaningful, but it's a fantastically fun film".[16] Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 3 stars out of 4, he praised the chemistry between the lead actors, saying "What makes the movie work is that Pitt and Jolie have fun together on the screen and they're able to tướng find a rhythm that allows them to tướng be understated and amused even during the most alarming developments".[17] In a negative review, Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle described the film as "awful" and stated that "The tiny smidgen of cleverness on display here is contained entirely in the premise. The follow-through is nonexistent".[18]

Plagiarism accusations[edit]

In 2006, New Zealand author Gavin Bishop accused the makers of the movie of plagiarizing his 1997 school book The Secret Lives of Mr and Mrs Smith, starring a husband and wife living apparently dull suburban lives but unbeknown to tướng the other both work as spies, and said he intended to tướng sue if a law firm willing to tướng share proceeds if successful would approach him.[19][20]

Home media[edit]

A single-disc DVD of the film was released on November 29, 2005, and a two-disc unrated version of the film was released on DVD on June 6, 2006. During director Doug Liman's audio commentary which is on the single-disc DVD release, he says that the film was edited for sexual and violent nội dung to tướng get a PG-13 rating. Mr. & Mrs. Smith was released on Blu-ray on December 4, 2007. It includes extra material from the 2005 single-disc DVD release but does not include additional material from the 2006 two-disc unrated version.

Inaccurate depiction of Bogotá[edit]

The government of Colombia criticized the film in particular for showing the capital Bogotá as a small village in the middle of the jungle with a hot and humid climate.[21] President Alvaro Uribe Vélez and Mayor Luis Eduardo Garzón invited Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and the producers to tướng get to tướng know the đô thị and realize the mistakes they made.[22]

TV series reboot[edit]

In 2007, a pilot for a spin-off television series was made for the network ABC. Set six months after the over of the film, it was written by Simon Kinberg and directed by Doug Liman. Kinberg described the proposed television series as "Married... with Children with guns."[23] The roles of John and Jane were played by Martin Henderson and Jordana Brewster. On trang web The Futon Critic, Brian Ford Sullivan criticised the chemistry between Henderson and Brewster and ended his review stating, "While there's always a few gems that get locked away in the networks' vaults each year, this decidedly isn't one of them".[24] ABC decided not to tướng commission the series.[25]

The film is parodied in Treehouse of Horror XVIII, a 2007 episode of the animated television series The Simpsons.[26]

In June 2010, Jolie said that she and Pitt had inquired about a sequel to tướng the film but were dissatisfied with the story. Jolie remarked, "We did ask somebody to tướng look into Mr. & Mrs. to tướng see if they could crack a sequel, but there wasn't anything original. It was just, 'Well, they're going to tướng get married, or they've got kids, or they get separated.' Never great."[27]

In July 2011, it was announced that Hong Kong studio New Asia Entertainment Group would produce a remake entitled Assassin Couple. Donnie Yen and Cecilia Cheung were to tướng star in the lead roles and the studio stated that, while the film would have some similarities with Mr. & Mrs. Smith, it would feature a new storyline. The budget for the film was phối at $18.7 million.[28][needs update]

In February 2021, Amazon Studios announced that a television series reboot based on the original film, starring Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, was phối to tướng be released on Amazon Prime Video in 2022.[29] However due to tướng creative differences with Glover, Waller-Bridge exited the project in early September 2021 and her part was phối to tướng be recast.[30] In April 2022, it was reported that Maya Erskine took over the role from Waller-Bridge.[31]
