Acts straightaway like it has an audience eating out of its hand, while neglecting to do anything surprising or delightful to actually seduce that audience.

Misleadingly action-focused ads aside, this uneven affair could score a mid-field femme following.

It’s not so much the writing as the easy comedic chemistry between the leads that sells it.

To what tier of romantic comedies does This Means War’ belong? You’d have to start at zero and work your way down.

The kind of rom-com that insults its primary audience and panders to their dates, War is depressingly mean-spirited.

What you have is some bittersweet fun peppered by bursts of sharp patter, the best between the boys.

A light,very light fun movie.It is not to be taken seriously.It does work in an odd sort of way.The non believable chase and fight scenes all add to the fun.You never know who Lauren is going to choose until the very end but it all works out fine for everyone. It is also a bit of a chick flick which adds to the appeal for the female audience.

The chemistry between the pair was fabulous to watch, alongside Reese Witherspoon being her usual charming self. The plot may have been somewhat of a typical rom-com - not usually my thing - but these actors definitely gave the film that extra...

Why Tom? Why? Oh well, even great actors get it badly wrong - just look at most of Richard Burton's later movies as well as most of Michael Caine's 1980's output and as for Robert de Niro... Look, what I'm saying is Tom Hardy is a great actor. TV series such as THE TAKE and OLIVER TWIST; movies such as WARRIOR, BRONSON, INCEPTION and TINKER, TAILOR,...

Extract from theaterofthecommonman.com There are two types of people in this world: those that love Reese Witherspoon and those that don't. Me? Well, I'd say I lean towards the latter. She definitely has her moments, who could deny her brilliance as June Carter Cash in James Mangold's Walk the Line. But sadly, legal or not, I have never bought into the...
