By the sea
The second and last film with Brangelina.
Have you seen it? I don’t recommend it. Angelina being a crazy bitch, so no acting there. It feels like a documentary about the real her.
The thing I want to discuss (sorry I’m going to make spoilers, but like I said you are not missing anything), is that Angelina’s character is a total whore because she’s depressed because she can’t have kids, she is sterile.
Jennifer Aniston has said she has had problems to get pregnant in the past and the main reason about Brad leaving her was because he wanted kids. With all the Angelina craziness and obsession about JA, do you think she made this movie just to hurt her? Exploiting JA and Brad real painful story and making a movie about it? Or just Angelina being an untalented brat?

It's a major turkey. The only upside is the supporting role of the gorgeous Frenchman Melvil Poupaud, who acts circles around Brad.

I am in the minority for sure, but I actually liked it. Yes, it felt voyeuristic given their personal lives at the time, but it was beautifully shot and I thought the acting was good (although it was not a stretch for either one of them, I'm sure).

It was filmed on Gozo just off Malta and rumours abounded that it it was lucky that they hadn't killed each other during the shoot. Malta is a small place, Gozo even smaller. Their marriage was pretty much over by then.

Interesting thread OP but Jennifer's friends said that at no point were children ever a priority to Brad. He said not long before they split he was too selfish. Highly debatable that either he or Angie should have had them. They used them for publicity.
Maybe they were trying to slam Jennifer, I remember how Brad publicly tried to blame her and their stale marriage for his drug/drinking use. Nasty people.

I tried to watch this a few years ago. I think I lasted 15 minutes.

Watching this film I realized Angelina really sees herself as an artist. That was funny.

I watched it but I don't remember anything from it at all. I probably was scrolling through my phone for most of it.

This can't be worse than The Tourist.

Oh man, I forgot about this disaster.
OP, I think you’re right. There are some fucked-up women who target married men. And getting the man isn’t enough for them. They want to beat the woman and humiliate her. It’s not personal; it’s just the pathology of the woman conquering. (Maybe men do this, I don’t know.)
I had a friend who was dating a married man. Sometimes she mentioned a thing she liked about him, but 3/4 of the things she talked about were centered on his wife. He took my friend to nicer places than he took his wife. His wife didn’t perform this act in bed, she “let herself go”, she was lazy, she was uptight and boring, etc. She clearly enjoyed beating this woman in every category. The wife was losing a competition she hadn’t entered and didn’t know a thing about. (She broke up with him when his wife became pregnant.)
It’s a nasty thing women do to each other, and the men seem to enjoy being the center of it. Jennifer didn’t engage, and she appeared to let Brad go rather easily. You’d think it would be flattering to Angie that it appeared her powers of seduction were so great that Jennifer conceded defeat immediately. But it also made Brad look like he wasn’t worth fighting for.
Obviously I love this soap opera.
So I wouldn’t doubt that they were twisting the knife a bit. Infertility is surely a source of pain, but I don’t know any woman who’s gone all promiscuous and trance-twirling because of it.
And the wigs were terrible.

I couldn't believe the stick legs on Angelina. I looked back at Pushing Tin and they didn't look that bad, but I think they dressed her to de-emphasize. It totally took me out of the film looking at her stilt-legs. Face was great, but will not age well.

The location was magical in a place to go to fuck a weekend away.

Her arms are the same way, as if she has a limb-wasting disease.

I heard it was horrible. So I never been tempted to see it. Plus I get sick of hearing about Brad and Angelina.

I think she mostly made the film to show off her brand-new reconstructed tits.

Jennifer never said anything like that. I thought Jennifer was more of a rebound from Paltrow and those relationship are usually never the best. Jennifer's father was quoted as saying Brad wasn't in any hurry to set a wedding date and this was after they became engaged. But you know these straight guys once they hit their mid30s feel the pressure from everyone in their orbit including their girlfriends, their parents and their own inner voices.
There were parts of this film I found very revealing. She played a horrendous character and Brad was the loving and patient husband. Maybe Jolie didn't realize which end was up. Maybe down deep she can't tell right from wrong.

In the Andrew Morton book about Angelina Jolie he says Pitt and Aniston were pretty much broken up for a long time before Jolie entered the picture. He was off filming Troy and Aniston was doing Friends. Pitt didn't even attend the final taping of Friends which people took as a sign they were threw.

People even got commemorative throw pillows to mark the event.

Both of them had the same expression throughout the film. They didn't act; they emoted ennui.
