This Means War on paper at least sounded like a complete disaster but manages to be
a completely ridiculous very silly but very funny action comedy about 2 rival spies who end up both falling for the same girl. Tom Hardy and Chris Pine 2 of the best upcoming talents are both very good as the two best friends and CIA agents who both meet and fall for Reese Witherspoon also giving a very good performance and then have a competetion which gets out of hand as each agent attempts to sabotage the other's attempt to win the girl's heart. They both use every trick in the book and use every CIA resource in an attempt to get the girl. Forget reality, the whole film is very over the top, silly, immature but if not taken seriously like it's not intended to be taken seriously then it is a lot of fun with good action scenes. The name McG normally makes me cringe but this is probably his best film. Switch brain off and enjoy.

For some reason this was supposed to be "a career low for all its three stars" according to one review in the press. I am glad I still went to see it! The plot of this comedy, if you don't know, is: two CIA agents and best friends accidentally start dating the same woman. Although they start off amicably, they progressively get down to dirtier tricks to spy on and undermine each other's efforts as they try to out-do themselves in front of her - while keeping their jobs secret and investigating the case of a German assassin heading to LA. Eventually the truth comes out... Who will she pick? How will it all end?

This is NOT one of those films where you are supposed to 'turn off your brain' (like Transformers) and it is definitely not an insipid rom-com. I don't know how, but all the incredible silliness and plot holes just don't matter and actually add to the enjoyment. Yeah, sure, in real life they'd be busted the second they diverted CIA resources to surveillance of a random civilian, and what the heck is an East Londoner doing working at the CIA? Forget it all. Both male stars bring something different to the film and for the girl it is a genuine dilemma of who to pick. I would say there is definite chemistry in both couples, and a believable friendship between the 'lads'.

I was fully expecting to sit through the film with a fixed grin and smile half-heartedly at the bits that were obviously supposed to be funny - I am a bit of tough audience when it comes to comedy and sick of the pulp that Hollywood rams down our throats. Not a bit of it, I totally got involved with the film, laughed, and didn't really see much coming in advance until it didn't matter.

I would really recommend this film (also, a mercifully short 1hr 40mins) for a cheerful evening in, whether by yourself or in a group - especially mixed girls and guys as there is a lot of 'relationship stuff' there to laugh about from both sides.

C.I A Agents 'FDR Foster' ( Chris Pine ) and 'Tuck' ( Tom Hardy ) are partners watching each others back when the chips are down, most importantly of all however they are ''Best-Friends''
'Tuck' meets a girl 'Lauren' ( Reese Witherspoon ) via an on-line dating agency, 'FDR' meets the same girl in a video store.
Competition between the two friends becomes intense as they both do everything to spoil the others chances with 'Lauren'
friendship between the two is put to the test, priority's have changed.
The film with 'Tuck' and 'FDR's' working together as they've always done,, whilst simmering in the background the explosive competition between the two is often quite funny as the two go to great lengths to belittle the other.
well worth a watch at least.

2 strong, sexy men, one intelligent woman- who does she choose> We couldn't stop laughing at the 'battle' between the best friends who both want Reese Witherspoon as their girl. The fact that they are best buddy undercover cops and have all sorts of techno back-up and muscles to fight over her is what makes the film so funny....especially Tom Hardy.

To be honest only bought because of Tom Hardy and also I like Reece Witherspoon films so that was a bonus too. I did actually laugh out loud in this film and it kept me entertained from start to finish. But how the hell Reece's character chose the guy she did is a mystery, but still it all worked out very nicely. Tom makes any movie worthwhile, and whereas this may not be his tour de force he still gives any film his all. I had never seen anything with Chris Pine in myself but he was a good co-star for Tom. I imagine this film was originally a vehicle for Reece Witherspoon and Chris Pine, however, since it was made I think we can quite honestly say Tom is as much an A-lister as Reece and Chris. There are three alternative endings which are fun to watch and also a couple of deleted scenes which are worth watching. Lots of action, romance and laughs. If you want something to while away a few hours then this is a good candidate, and if you like Tom Hardy then what are you waiting for!

Can't really imagine this will appeal to the boys - check out the bad reviews, most of them mail. However for a rainy Sunday afternoon I thought this was great. I rarely laugh out loud at films but did so on a couple of occasions. OK it wasn't going to win any Oscars but it was a light hearted romp. And of course Tom Hardy was his normal gorgeous self.

How earth RW would choose Chris PIne over him is beyond me, but then in Hollywoodland the Yanks are always going to beat the Brits. So if you have a spare couple of hours this is worth giving a go.
