This Means War (2012)

Written by Timothy Dowling, Simon Kingberg
Directed by McG
Starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and Tom Hardy

Fun, fun, fun.

I have always been a fan of Reese Witherspoon. She’s blonde, she’s sweet, & she’s silly. This one makes her look kinda ditsy because he dates two guys at once and doesn’t really bat an eye in any real way.

Chris Pine is the man! Since his performance as captain Kirk in the Star Trek Movie he has been a favorite of mine. Pine does his thing in this one. He looks cool, he acts cool, he is cool… and kind of a dick! Tom Hardy does a great job of standing on his own opposite Pine in this one. He makes a great sidekick to Pine is very loveable as a softhearted hero.

The story basically is two guys meet one girl and decide to fight for her affection so she will choose one over the other. The place where this movie falls apart is as mentioned Witherspoons inability to choose one and continually date them both. This makes everyone involved kind of a bad person.

Bottom 5 rating. I wouldn’t bother with this one. Its fun but has very little redeeming qualities. You could rent it and enjoy it but don’t bother with the theatrical release.
