FDR (Chris Pine) and Tuck (Tom Hardy) are covert CIA operatives and best buddies…until they both fall for charming and sexy Lauren (Reese Witherspoon). Their friendship is put to the ultimate test as they wage an epic battle for her affection, using their surveillance skills and an array of high-tech gadgetry — may the best spy win!
I wanted to see this movie when it had first been released, but I’ve heard such bad reviews, I’ve been putting it off forever. Well, it finally came up on Netflix this weekend, and hubby and I sat down to watch it.
It was hilarious! I loved it. I will say that I’m a big fan of romantic comedy, so that might have something to do with it.
Yes, I know that none of the story was plausible, but 99% of the movies I watch aren’t either, so it didn’t bother me. I don’t particularly care for any of the actors/actresses in the movie either.
So color me shocked when I loved everything about the movie. I laughed throughout the whole thing. I thought the characters were cast brilliantly. I loved watching the guys stalk the girl of their dreams, and adored the merry chase she gave the boys in turn. Talk about hot!
I wasn’t expecting much from the movie, so maybe that’s why I thought it was such a hoot. The show wasn’t perfect. There were little things about each character that I didn’t care for, but overall, this is one movie that I’ll have to buy and watch again. If you want some good fun, a little murder and mayhem, and a touch of romance, I would recommend giving This Means War a try.
