Take what are widely regarded as the two most beautiful people on the planet (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie), give them some guns, and a fairly contrived story, mix well, and what do you get? A cross between War of the Roses and a James Bond flick. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it doesn’t guarantee a good movie, either. This one was somewhat disappointing. There wasn’t enough humor to call this movie a comedy, but the action isn’t enough by itself to carry a movie (when will Hollywood realize that?). Vince Vaughn was one notable bright spot in the film, but isn’t he tired of playing the same stereotypical unhappily-married guy, or grizzled divorcee? I mean he’s good at it, but seriously, Vince, it might be time to find a new agent.
