This Means War, Movie Review

Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy Form the
Perfect Love Triangle in this Action Packed Comedy
Available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download May 22
They are the CIA’s best, trained for any situation…except one.  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment plays the ultimate spy game as two best friends fight for the right of one woman’s hand in THIS MEANS WAR, coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download May 22.  Starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon* (Walk the Line), Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), the laugh-out-loud comedy gets even better on Blu-ray with three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?
The world’s deadliest CIA operatives, FDR Foster (Pine) and Tuck (Hardy) are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman (Witherspoon).  Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis – each other.

My Thoughts:
I must not have been paying attention to the previews very well because I totally thought this was a total chick flick. And yes the main plot was around the love triangle but there was some definite action. When I started this movie I almost thought I'd put in the wrong thing!  It's obviously not a hard core action movie just for the guys but I think its a good blend that creates a bit of a compromise between action and romantic comedy!  I think the three main characters are terrific but honestly, Chelsey Handler is my favorite. I LOVED her character.  Especially when she's pretty much shouting "YES! Sex tie breaker..." in the middle of a kids play-land!  I can't say I've ever found myself in a true love triangle but the movie does well to make it fairly believable. Ok, well as believable as being in a love triangle with two CIA agents who bug your house to get a leg up on their competition, who happens to be their best friend can be.  Overall, I thought it was a fun watch  and would recommend it!

Disclosure: I received a screener copy of this movie for review purposes. All opinions expressed are my own honest, personal feedback.
