Review & Giveaway: This Means War (Movie)

A few days ago I told you I was fortunate enough to be able to offer one of my readers a DVD of the fun, action-packed, and romantic movie This Means War, starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.

Two best friends, FDR and Tuck, work for the CIA and don't have much time for committed relationship . . . until they meet Lauren. Lauren hasn't dated in a while but when she meets two hot guys on the same day, her best friend encourages her to date them both until she decides which one, if either, she likes better.

When FDR and Tuck realize they're dating the same woman they decide to keep both their friendship and their occupation secret from Lauren. How long can they keep up the pretense and what will happen when Lauren finds out she's dating the two best buds? Pop some popcorn and get ready to try to decide which guy you would pick. To help you choose here's a list of their characteristics (thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment):

In This Means War, Lauren had one big question looming on her mind--which is the right guy for her--FDR or Tuck? Below we create a comparison of the two, just like Lauren did with her bestie, Trish.
What They Share
  • Can wear a suit really well
  • Live in really nice apartments
  • Rich
  • Can protect you
  • Have a dangerous job
All About Tuck
  • Sweet
  • Has a child and an ex-wife
  • British
  • Likes to plan
  • Takes relationship slowly and more carefully--he’s safe
All About FDR
  • Has commitment issues
  • Plenty of ex-girlfriends
  • Tall
  • Blunt
  • Spontaneous

There are several possible outcomes to This Means War, and Mr. BFR and I made our predictions early on in the film. I guessed wrong, but it didn't take away from enjoying the movie.

Giveaway Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment I can offer one of my readers a DVD of the movie This Means War. Because the studio publicity people will be mailing out the DVD, this giveaway is open to only those with a U.S. or Canada mailing address (no PO boxes). To enter for a chance to win, just fill out the form. I'll pick a winner on May 24 using a random number generator. Good luck!
