Chris Pine and Tom Hardy play CIA operatives and best friends who discover they are after the same girl, Reese Witherspoon, in This Means War.
Pine plays FDR, and Tom Hardy is Tuck in a movie that is more of a bromance than anything else. The two buddies become quick enemies as they fight for the heart of Lauren Scott (Witherspoon).

That, in a nutshell, is the movie, which could self-destruct in three, two. …
Witherspoon, an Oscar winner, doesn't do much for her career in this film. It’s a romantic comedy that isn’t funny and has little romance.
It’s not the fault of the actors; I think most of the blame has to be shouldered by Mug, the director. He has taken the Charlie’s Angels action he is known for and attempted to make a romantic comedy. Mug, your mission has failed.

The movie is playing at Regal 22 Cinemas in Austell at 2:30, 4:30, 5:05, 7:40, 9:45 and 10:15 p.m.
