Five popular movies starring Brad Pitt. 'Mr and Mrs Smith' (2005) stars Pitt and Angelina Jolie as John and Jane Smith, a suburban couple whose marriage has started to go a bit stale after five or six years. Both wish for more excitement in their relationship, but as it happens, each of them is finding plenty of thrills elsewhere. Both Jane and John are world-class assassins who will take on perilous missions for the right price, but neither is aware of the other's secret life - Jane thinks her husband runs a successful construction company, and John believes his wife works on Wall Street. However, when John and Jane are both assigned to take out the same target, one Benjamin Danz (Adam Brody), they become aware of each other's secret lives, and suddenly both their careers and their marriage go through some dramatic and potentially deadly changes. In 'Kalifornia' (1993), a writer (David Duchovny) and his photographer girlfriend leave New York to drive to a new life in California, taking in several Southern States so that they can visit murder sites for their new book on serial killers. Along the way they pick up two hitchhikers, one of whom (Pitt) could provide an interesting case study for their research. In 'Fight Club' (1999), Edward Norton stars as 'Jack', a bored insomniac, determined to inject some excitement into his life. He meets Tyler Durden (Pitt), a charismatic soap salesman who believes that the only way to escape the banality of modern existence is through violence. To these ends, Jack and Tyler set up 'Fight Clubs', where men can engage in brutal bare-knuckle fights. However, friction develops between the two men when they both become rivals for the attentions of Marla (Helena Bonham-Carter). In 'Thelma and Louise' (1991), waitress Louise (Susan Sarandon) persuades her friend Thelma (Geena Davis) to escape her sexist husband and join her on a driving holiday. When they stop off at a country bar, Louise ends up saving Thelma from an attempted rape - shooting and killing the rapist in the process - and the women consequently find themselves forced to go on the run. Along the way their money is stolen by a handsome cowboy (Pitt) and they begin holding-up convenience stores, feeling strangely liberated by their new-found assertiveness. Harvey Keitel stars as the detective who attempts to talk the heroines into giving themselves up. In 'A River Runs Through It' (1992), Robert Redford directs and narrates a tale of two brothers growing up in 1920s Montana. Norman (Craig Sheffer) is the responsible one who will later attend college, while Paul (Pitt) is more reckless, staying at home and getting increasingly involved in a lifestyle of gambling and drinking. Together, they join their preacher father (Tom Skerritt) for long fly fishing sessions, but the apparent happiness of these occasions is eventually disrupted by Paul's carelessness, a carelessness which draws the film towards its tragic conclusion.
