Like time travelers from the Golden Age of Hollywood studio films, the characters played by Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard in "Allied" (Paramount) don't allow a little event like World War II to muss their elegant coifs. Whether taking out the German ambassador in Casablanca with their burp guns or having their daughter born outdoors in London during an air raid, this perpetually chic couple keeps matters neat and nice, laundered and pressed. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The overwrought plot -- which combines doomed love, purse-lipped Nazis and occasional choruses of chanteuse Rina Ketty's occupation-resonant hit "J'attendrai" ("I Will Wait") -- has no surprises.
