Becky and I took the kids to see This Means War to a sneak preview at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at This Means War describes the movie as follows…
“CIA operatives FDR Foster (Chris Pine) and Tuck (Tom Hardy) are inseparable best friends and partners. Together, their good looks, covert abilities and combat skills rank them among the CIA’s elite, but their longstanding personal and professional bond is put to the test when they meet Lauren (Reese Witherspoon). FDR and Tuck both fall hard for the beautiful blonde, and turn their deadly skills and an array of high-tech gadgetry against one another in an all-out battle for her love…”
This Means War was a movie that I thought was going to be stupid based on the previews that we saw at other movies. I wasn’t looking forward to seeing this movie at all, but it turned out to be pretty funny. The critics hated this movie, but the fans really liked it. Our kids liked it and thought it was hilarious, although I have to warn you to exercise caution here because it’s an adult movie with some adult humor and scenes.
Still the characters are good, the acting is well done and the story is pretty funny. It’s kind of a weird flick in that it’s an action and a comedy rolled into one with the two guys, who are best friends, going after the same pretty girl. The girl is played by Reese Witherspoon and one of the guy’s she falls for is that dude from Star Trek, Chris Pine and the other is Tom Hardy from that movie Warrior and a few other popular films.
I thought it was a good movie and worth the trip, with quite a few laughs and a story that was very different. Everyone else said that it’s a Don’t Miss It, so put it on your list of movies to see.
