Mr. & Mrs. Smith: A Refreshing and Utterly Charming Remake
Mr. & Mrs. Smith Review: Donald Glover and Maya Erskine Share Terrific Chemistry
Prime Video’s new series Mr. & Mrs. Smith gives a compelling update on the 2005 blockbuster film that starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
New Mr. & Mrs. Smith: A Surprisingly Good Remake
The idea of a new Remake of the iconic 2005 Spy Caper Mr. & Mrs. Smith that gave the world Brangelina did not sit right at first. There were delays and major casting changes, with Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge initially attached to star with Donald Glover. Phoebe was soon replaced by Maya Erskine. So many changes seemed like a bad sign.
But the new Prime Video series, which is co-created by Glover and Francesca Sloane, is unexpectedly good – even better than the 2005 movie.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith: The Characters First and Foremost
The focus of the new series is on the two people – John (Donald Glover) and Jane (Maya Erskine) – and their relationship. The show mines out the details of their relationship and reveals more with each new mission.
A set of terrific cameos from Paul Dano, Sharon Horgan, Michaela Coel, and Sarah Paulson adds to the charm.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith: A Spy Action-Thriller, a Character Study, and an Incisive Study on Governance
Mr. & Mrs. Smith is a spy action-thriller, a character study, and an incisive study on governance all rolled into one.
Glover and Erskine work like a dream, and share an easy and beguiling chemistry, which is essential to the show as it dials up a few notches of tension in the final episodes.
