DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Romantic Comedy - This crowdpleasing film is equal parts action film, romantic comedy, and domestic satire. There is quite a bit of violence, but some of it is played for dark humor, and the overall comedy in the film takes a bit of the edge off.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average This is one of those films where the pluses and minuses almost exactly counterbalance each other. For every scene that works because of the snappy dialogue or the Pitt/Jolie rapport, there's a drawn-out action scene that causes everything to grind to a halt.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good There is a kind of movie that consists of watching two people together on the screen. The plot is immaterial. What matters is the 'chemistry,' a term that once referred to a science but now refers to the heat we sense, or think we sense, between two movie stars.

USA Today Full Review
Good The best moments in the action-packed romantic comedy are when the couple exhibit their considerable chemistry. Whether sitting side-by-side and haltingly discussing their marriage with a shrink, bickering about banalities or setting off sexual sparks, they're always fun to watch — and not simply because they're gorgeous.
