Brangelina’s ‘By the Sea’ deemed a big yawn by movie critics

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt teamed up for the first time on screen in 10 years for and”By The Seaand” but Hollywoodand’s leading power couple on Friday got scathing early reviews for the movie, which some deemed a laborious vanity project.

The Hollywood Reporterand’s Todd McCarthy called it and”the kind of vanity project you donand’t see much of anymore.and” He wrote that it was a languid attempt at European art-house cinema that and”will prove once again that even the biggest names in the world wonand’t draw an audience to something that, in and of itself, has no reason for being.and”
The more than two-hour-long film, which opens in US movie theaters on Nov. 13, reunites the two actors as a screen couple for the first time since the flirty 2005 action comedy and”Mr. Mrs. Smith,and” which brought them together in real life.
and”By the Seaand” — Jolie Pittand’s third directorial feature — could hardly be more different.
