Our Score
It might seem odd to see Brad Pitt in a film about a marriage in serious trouble, particularly as it came out immediately after his own domestic strife hit the headlines. But then he and Jennifer Aniston never tried to assassinate each other, which is exactly the enjoyably daft premise of this action comedy. Pitt and co-star Angelina Jolie (who consequently got hitched) play the married couple who are a) bored with each other (to many, the movie's most preposterous conceit) and b) professional killers (unknown to one another) hired to rub each other out. Director Doug Liman combines the wit he demonstrated in Swingers with the talent for stylish mayhem he showed in The Bourne Identity to great effect here, though some will feel that he lurches into overkill in the last half hour. Although it's supremely silly, Pitt and Jolie look outrageously good in their roles and it's fun while it lasts.


An outwardly bored suburban couple lead double lives as professional assassins, both unaware of their partner's secret. When they are hired to kill each other, the deadly situation puts some much-needed excitement back into their stale relationship. Comedy adventure, starring Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Vince Vaughn and Adam Brody.
