They are the CIA’s best, trained for any situation…except one. The game of love! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment plays the ultimate spy game as two best friends fight for the right of one woman’s hand in THIS MEANS WAR, out now on Blu-ray, DVD and for Digital Download. This hilarious comedy stars Academy Award® winner and one of my favorite actresses Reese Witherspoon, with Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. Check out the special features on Blu-ray including three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?
Think Jam and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment generously sent me a screener of THIS MEANS WAR for my viewing pleasure and review. I invited over a few friends over for a Girls Night In and a viewing party. Reese’s character Lauren is definitely a girl that one can relate to. She seems like a down to earth girl going from trying to avoid her cheating ex, to trying to figure out how she could ever juggle two guys, FDR (Pine) and Tuck (Hardy)! While at first she decides to have some fun and enjoy both men, she soon realizes that she truly is a one man woman and knows she has to make that tough decision.
Now I can say my friends came over for a fun comedy, but I know the truth. They just wanted to see some eye candy, and who was I to argue. Handsome men in suits anyone?
One of my favorite scenes is when each of the guys try to sabotage each others dates with Lauren. I was in absolute laughing stitches! Of course the use of Beastie Boys’ Sabotage was more than appropriate. Definitely a good laugh. When you have two CIA Agents, you just know any way they try to ruin each others dates is going to be creative!
Also as a huge fan of Chelsea Handler, I was happy to see she was in this film as well. She plays Lauren’s married friend Trish. She has some great one-liners in this film, and the way she talks about her and her husband Bob’s relationship, I’m sure you married girls can relate to her loving and at times sarcastic attitude!
We very much enjoyed THIS MEANS WAR as a fun Girls Night In movie. However, there is more than enough action (remember the guys are CIA Agents) to keep any man’s attention to this romantic comedy. There are shoot outs, fights, and a hilarious paint ball scene while Tuck tries to prove how “hardcore” he really can be!
