We’ve used the term so much that it has become a cliché, but it doesn’t ring more true than when two spy’s go up against each other...This really does mean war.
Reese Witherspoon, Lauren, stars alongside Chris Pine, FDR Forster, and Tom Hardy, Tuck, in the action comedy. The movie is about two of the CIA agents FDR and Tuck waging war against each other when they find out they are both dating the same girl, Lauren. Lauren is oblivious to the fact that the two men know each other, but throughout the movie has to decide on which one she would rather date while the two men sabotage each other’s dates; in order to win her over.
This Means War had an original release date of February 14, but was pushed back by Sony Pictures so that they would not have to go head to head with The Vow on Valentine’s Day. Despite this, This Means War did not open at number one but at number five for its opening weekend, still behind The Vow, Safe House, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. The movie made only $17.4 million on opening weekend.
This Means War is by far not one of the best movies of the year, it’s not as funny as you’d think it would be and there is more action than there is romance. If you go to see this movie I suggest you take a friend, you both can pick one of the guys you think she’ll end up with and that might make it more fun to sit through. If you want to give this movie a chance go ahead, but I can’t guarantee that you won’t regret it.
