Sean Penn and Naomi Watts in 'Fair Game' trailer (100 percent Cindy Crawford free!)

As far as we can tell, there are precisely zero supermodels in Sean Penn and Naomi Watts’ new spy thriller (out Nov. 5) — which, depending on your personal taste, makes it more or less appealing than the 1995 movie of the same name (which starred Cindy Crawford’s mole as the mole of a super hot lawyer on the run from the KGB). Instead, this one is based on the tell-all memoir of ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame, (played by Naomi Watts) who was publicly exposed after her husband (Sean Penn) ruffled feathers in Washington by accusing the Bush administration of bending the truth regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Check out the trailer below.

If you’re like me, the movie’s domestic-spy-thriller feel reminded you a bit of a straight-faced version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. And if you’re really like me, you got a momentary kick from realizing that Fair Game and Mr. and Mrs. Smith were both directed by Doug Liman — but then you got a little less excited when you realized that there actually isn’t any interesting conclusion to be drawn from that. (Bonus points if you also subsequently ate a yogurt to console yourself.)

So what’s the verdict? Will you buy a ticket to Fair Game this November? Or will you stage a silent pro-Cindy protest by doing a mini House of Style marathon on YouTube?

    Yeah, they really should’ve called this movie something else because I can’t help but picture Cindy Crawford and Billy Baldwin in the Naomi Watts/Sean Penn roles.

    i love how people are going to watch this and think it was really inspired by true events..valarie plane was in no way some jason bourne running around the globe..she sat at a desk in the CIA and her husband was a hack…then they appeared in vanity fair so obviously they didn’t care too much about their privacy…i don’t mind making a movie but admit its totally fiction at this point with no basing in reality..

      She wasn’t behind a desk and she wasn’t Jason Bourne. She was an operative in the field who gathered info and assets to help our country and our government let her down. Do some research. Don’t just spill blind hatred towards these people.

      They don’t care about reality, they just want to bash President Bush et al all over again. You do know that the Gulf of Mexico disaster is all Bush’s fault, right? *rolls eyes

    Yes Elaine because you know every intimate detail of their personal and professional life. Wow, it must be amazing to live in that “brain” of yours.

  • paige

    ill see anything with Naomi Watts

  • Jose

    Reminds me to much of “Nothing But the Truth” with Kate Beckinsale.

    • KM

      That movie was amazing. Kate Beckinsale and Vera Farmiga were Oscar worthy even. It’s too bad it didn’t get more publicity.

  • jfms777

    Naomi Watts is a fine fine actress, but her films are so uneven. Hope this one is a keeper.

  • khm

    Anyone else excited to see Brooke Smith in a movie that’s NOT Silence of the Lambs? …Just me?

    • W

      Thinking the SAME thing!

  • KT

    Ehhhhh. Although I found the real news of this intriguing enough, I don’t think it warrants a feature film. But that’s Hollywood for ya. And yeah, it’s not like Valerie Plame was Jason Bourne or Piper Perabo in Covert Affairs.

  • steandric

    Obviously a film about Valerie Plame, and evidently according to the official credits, Naomi Watts and Sean Penn.
