Consensus: A career lowlight for all three of its likable stars, This Means War is loud, clumsily edited, and neither romantic nor funny.

Tom Huddleston
Time Out

Yet another case of Hollywood execs trying way too hard to give the audience what they think it wants.

Unsurprisingly enough an average, unfunny comedy. Amoungst the Love triangle, there's a pointless understory, undeveloped characters and not enough action… More

I enjoyed this. I do have a soft spot for Reese's movies. I find her very cute, funny, and sweet. Plus, I am a Tom Hardy fan...very much so! On that note,… More
