This Means War (Review)

Grade: A-

This Means War starring Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, and Reese Witherspoon hits theaters this weekend. It’s mostly your typical romantic comedy, girl meets boy and boys best friend, dates both of them scenario. Okay I guess that’s not so typical, but it isn’t out of left field either.  So, the boys realize quickly, that they are dating the same girl. They agree to “let the best man win.” So who’s it gonna be. I know who I would have picked.

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of both Pine and Hardy, and I think most of the population likes Reese Witherspoon with her all american girl qualities, so the cast alone had me sold. It’s not a rocket science film, and it’s not out to be an oscar contender. It doesn’t market itself in that way. This is just one of those good old fashion romantic comedies, with enough action thrown in to keep the boyfriends and husbands happy. But when it comes down to it, the girls are going to be way more into this film.

Ladies, don’t hesitate to force your man to go with you though. They will enjoy it as well, no matter how much they resist at first. I know mine was laughing so hard I think coke would have shot out of his nose if he had taken a drink at the wrong time. Especially during the ridiculous paintball fight.

I’m giving this movie my stamp of approval. The guys are hot, there are lots of laughs, and its just a fun film. If you want a movie where you can go, eat some popcorn, and just have a good time. This is your winner for the weekend.
