Crappest Movie of the Year - Mr & Mrs Smith
We should really have know better - Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie as a couple of married hit persons, who were unaware of what the other did for a living - how many times has that old chesnut of a plot been given a going over? Jack Nicholson & Kathleen Turner in John Huston's "Prizzi's Honour" for starters. Honestly "Mr & Mrs Smith" is such a piece of crap, that you feel dirty just watching it, and feel like taking a shower... personally I hate product placement in movies, and when watches & cars & other accessories are constantly being thrust in your face, you feel like demanding your money back, for being forced to watch a 120 minute advert rather than a movie. Acting - unforgivable, Script - so full of holes you could drive an articulated truck through them... Action sequences, this is what you want in a movie like this... but you want them to be exciting, not stale old retreads... Gunplay - you would have thought by now that Hollywood would have learned something from Asian action cinema... but no, this was so tedious, all that slo-mo etc. and Comedy - surely comedy is that not supposed to be funny? somebody all to let the guy who directed this in on that secret...
Honestly I've suffered this piece of garbage so that you don't have too.. "Mr & Mrs Smith" - crappest movie of the year 2005, no contest.
