Added DiffLines:

* GenderDynamicsIndex: Work your way down the page and fall in love with the film's love of playing with these tropes. Sometimes they play them entirely straight, sometimes they subvert them, then double subvert them, then twist them all to hell and gone.

* ProfessionalKiller: The true occupation of the Smiths to take out hits on other people.

to:

* PoliceAreUseless: Subverted. John and Jane's DestructoNookie, which started as a genuine full-blown shootout, causes the police to be called. But when they answer the door naked and ''obviously'' satisfied, the situation is defused.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Bogotá, Colombia, in real life, is a city of nearly 7 million (at the time of filming) with a cool climate. Here it's portrayed as a small river-side town where the sun always shines, people listen to flamenco music and there's no need for clothes. To make things worse, a soldier speaks with a heavy Mexican accent. Even the actors said that they've never been to Bogotá, or Colombia, for that matter.

* WasItReallyWorthIt: It should be brought into question as to why the agencies ordered a hit on the Smiths as opposed to just letting them live their lives considering that they were able to take out every single agent they had.

One day, John Smith (BradPitt) is ordered to take out a hit on a man called "The Tank." But his wife Jane (AngelinaJolie), who works for a rival agency, is also sent to take down "The Tank." Upon discovering each other's identities, the Smiths are told by their employers to take each other out, leading to results that range from your standard SlapSlapKiss all the way up to no-holds-barred DomesticAbuse. Things are not as they seem, though. When John and Jane both come under attack by their former employers, they realise that if they are going to live (and keep their marriage intact), they're going to have to work together both as assassins ''and'' as a couple.
