Mr. and Mrs. Smith didn't impress me

I thought this movie would be a lot better, but the plot was basically exactly what I thought it would be. Aside from some decent special effects, the movie basically bored me, and I expected it to be a lot funnier.

I don't think many people were "impressed" by it, though I know a lot of people that found it enjoyable (myself including). It was a slight, fast paced little movie with a few funny scenes and a mild mess of a plot.

Think there's a review thread, but my search function isn't working.

okay. Sorry you didn't like it better? I don't think anyone's exactly frothing to put this on a classics list, so it seems you reaction could be desribed as somewhat normal. Though I will say I enjoyed the movie myself.

Sorry dude. Why exactly your opinion of this movie merits a thread as opposed to a simple post in the thread that already exists and can be found with a simple search is beyond me. But hey, guess it is.

Well yngwie malmsteen still sells millions of records over there, so there's no accounting for taste.

I enjoyed it the first time around. The second time I couldn't sit through it. I suppose that's because the first time around it wasn't as horrible as I expected it to be and the second time I simply watched it for what it was.

Pure fluff. I saw it on a plane on the way home from Europe. It's good for passing the time but that's about it.
I hear there was a lot ot turmoil during the filming and that the plot was changed around quite a bit. There's a good movie in here somewhere but my guess most of it is on the cutting room floor.

I thought it was pretty good considering that Hitchcock isn't known for his romantic comedies.

They are making this into a TV series now (along with Blade.)

Good Movie to TV show adaptations:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
M.A.S.H.

I enjoyed it, however it didn't impress me. I'm not sure why someone would think that this movie would have the potential to impress.

I thought it was extremely boring and was easily one of the worst movies of last year. I expected alot more from Doug Liman. The shootout sequence at the end has got to be one of the most ridiculous scenes I've ever sat through.

100% agreement...well make that 99% agreement. The part with the mini-van was funny. "These doors really are handy" But when she slams the brakes and starts shooting while driving backwards it was back to

So I guess a TV series more or less means the sequel on the big screen won't happen? FWIW, both Buffy and MASH were Fox properties like Mr. and Mrs. Smith, so in this realm, they have a good track record.

I was looking forward to a sequel, as I thought this movie was great fun. However, if it goes to TV, I too think the chances of a sequel are slim to none. Oh well. Maybe the TV show will be good.

Strong agreement.
