Episode 78: Mr. & Mrs. Smith

In this episode:

Listen NOW!

A bored married couple is surprised to learn that they are both assassins hired by competing agencies to kill each other.

Our predictions: Will it hold up?

Ryan– Yes

Ashley- Yes

Show Notes:

-Ashley reminisces about going to the movies by herself.

– We talk about how we associate this movie with the epic Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston break up.

– We predict that there will be some dated tech in this film.

– We keep calling it a spy film in the beginning of the episode, but the characters are actually assassins.  

– We are pleasantly suprised by some of the cameos in this movie. 

-Ryan gets excited about the legends of action movies. 

-Ryan rocked Arnetts?  Google them apparently.

– We question whether that bottom oven (where Jane hides some of her guns) functions as a real oven.  

-We keep saying “ear pods” but what we mean are “air pods.”  

-We talk about cool tech in action films. 

-Our DVD version of this film had that one pirating commercial from the mid 2000’s. (Click the link to watch it!)

-Ryan talks about that time his brother made him do the “Brad Pitt Punch” as a good luck charm in Vegas. 

-We question how they got away with so much in this movie without much police showing up. Then we decide that more people probably should mind their business.

– We compare John and Jane’s assassin styles.  

– We discuss how problematic Eddie is as a character.

-Ryan DID say that he was giving his Cagey to the same person at the beginning of Ashley’s choice.

-Ashley is conflicted in deciding if this movie condones domestic violence. (It at least glorifies unhealthy relationships.).
