You don't always fall for the leading man of a romantic comedy, so This Means War provides a doubly pleasant surprise, because you fall for two. Tom Hardy and Chris Pine play Tuck and FDR, best friends who work together as covert agents in the CIA. When they coincidentally start dating the same girl, Lauren (Reese Witherspoon), they agree to have a fair fight for her affections. But as their feelings intensify, their gentlemanly intentions fall away and they both employ their spy resources for sabotage. It's a silly premise, but the combination of the two very charming love interests and a funny script make it a light, entertaining escape.
This Means War isn't all man candy; Witherspoon is at her most adorable as an everygirl who has just enough glamour and sophistication to be the heartbreaker in the middle of two extremely eligible guys. The casting of the three leads gets this movie off on the right foot, and they each bring a surprising amount of comedy to the film. To see why else I enjoyed This Means War, just keep reading.
