Vasicek Model: smile dynamics

I have come across the statement that the Vasicek model cannot be used to price skew / smile sensitive products: i.e. it cannot be calibrated to replicate a skew or smile. Why is that? My guess is ...

Is there a closed form solution to the following system of SDEs?

Suppose we have the system \begin{align} dr_t=\alpha_r(x_t-r_t)dt+\sigma_rdW_t^r\\ dx_t=\alpha_x(\bar{x}-x_t)dt+\sigma_xdW_t^x\\ \end{align} As this system is affine, I believe there should be an easy ...
