The Hollywood Reporter

By Michael Rechtshaffen
Expertly tossing off the type of well-sharpened banter that was the domain of Gable and Lombard and Tracy and Hepburn, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie -- no matter what their off-camera status -- make one swell combative couple.

The screen smokes with sexual heat. But what's really erotic is how much fun the actors seem to be having.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
What makes the movie work is that Pitt and Jolie have fun together on the screen, and they're able to find a rhythm that allows them to be understated and amused even during the most alarming developments.

Jolie and Pitt project more than just body heat. They convey a multi-faceted attraction, toss off clever repartee and dazzle audiences with their seemingly natural connection. And that's worth watching.

By Owen Gleiberman
For all the nimbleness of its first half and the chemical zing of Pitt and Jolie, the film devolves into a fractious and explosive mess, hitting the same note of ''ironic'' violence over and over.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
The movie reminded me of a relatively new product, the little translucent wafer that you put on your tongue to freshen your breath. One hit of intense flavor and the thing dissolves without a trace.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
Maybe my priorities are wrong, but this inquiring mind wants to know when these two will find a movie entirely worthy of his understatement and her naughtiness. This one has its moments, but it's also littered with action-flick junk.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The film is glossy, but awful. Frenetic, but awful. Expensive, but awful. ... And awful.
