MOVIE REVIEW – This Means War

So I got invited by the lovely people at 20th Century Fox to attend the screening of This Means War, if you’re expecting the usual chick flick bore – you could not be more mistaken!

For one there is more actions in this movie than you can shake a stick at, it has the undeniably attractive Tom Hardy in it – I mean HOT, HOT, HOT (and then some)!!!!!!

Then we have the enviable Reece Witherspoon, who quite clearly I’m insanely jealous of! Not only does she have two hot bods Tom Hardy and Chris Pine (who I swear to god has the bluest eyes you’ve ever seen!)  vying (when I say vying I mean practically killing each other) for her affections – She also comes across as one of those people that are undeniably lovely in every sense! You kind of want her to be your friend, I’m pretty sure if we met we’d be BBF (I’m just kidding of course, ahem) back to the review in hand.

Reece plays the girl-next-door relatable Lauren, she’s been single for as long as she can remember. So long in fact that her hysterical sister, Trish, played by the hilarious scene stealing Chelsea Handler (who’d have thought it hey?! Certainly not me, but she is fabulous in it, self-depredating and just light comedic relief!)  signs her up for an online dating profile, much to her dismay.

Cue, movie opening, action fest scene (where one could be forgiven for thinking that it’s going to be a boy flick, if not for the fact that Reece Witherspoon is in it!) where Tom’s character Tuck and his partner/ best friend: FDR race to prevent the leading Russian baddie – played by Til Schweiger – from getting away with the money and briefcase (which one can only assume contains a weapon of mass destruction, this is only alluded to, so we have to use our imagination here!).

Following the opening scene, where they cause havoc by ultimately saving the day, leaving damage and destruction and a seething Russian villan vying for their blood in their wake, we’re introduced to the more sensitive side of Tuk – as he longs for a women to share his life with. As a result of this realisation, he decides to set up an online dating account…

Now I don’t want to ruin the film for you, otherwise you won’t want to see it for yourself will you? Aside from the name of the film and the file’s poster below, you can assume that what ensues is a dramatic quest to win the girl by two best friends with the resources of being a secret spy at their disposal!

What I will say that it is perfect date night movie – enough action for the boys, enough romantic gushy scenes (and might I mention shit loads of guy candy in the form of Tom and Chris – Mother may I!?). It is a must-see movie that I’m certain will not disappoint!

Tom and Chris are great in their roles, both are very convincing in their feelings for Reece’s character Lauren. As for Reece, well you just want to be her.

Suffice to say, I invite you to go and see the movie for yourself.

  1. I agree. I’m still trying to fuirge out how they replaced the ever adventurous style maven (SJP, who is OVER 21 y.o.-lol) with a teen who wears no shoes (like Sade) and wore one fab hippie-style dress (while attempting to outsing Melissa Etheridge) without fanfare. I like the Reese idea myself but I guess they want the teens as customers so they gotta use one of their own .
