I will admit, I had very low expectations when I saw the trailer for this. I thought surely this will be an awful movie. I’m glad I was wrong about it. This Means War stars Chris Pine(Princess Diaries 2,Star Trek) and Tom Hardy(Inception,Warrior) as FDR and Tuck,CIA agents who are partners and best friends until they both start dating the same woman,Lauren, played by Reese Witherspoon(Legally Blonde, Walk The Line). They then start fighting each other in order to win the girl using all of their spy tricks. Lauren enlist the help of her friend Trish (Chelsea Handler) to help her decide between the 2 men.
This movie should tickle the fancy and both men and women this coming Valentines day if you don’t want to get stuck going to that other movie, The Vow. This one is funny, has some good spy action and a lot of the bromance that will appeal to men but the women get all the romance that they want to see. It really is a perfect meld of the two. And there is a really fun chemistry between the whole cast. Had a fun time watching this one.
This Means War is in theater February 17, with a special national preview on Valentine’s Day.
