Goofs

The section of the movie store in front of which Lauren and FDR bump into each other for the first time is the "drama" section. Most of the movies seen on the shelves in this section, e.g. "Aliens", "Marmaduke", "Predators", "Ice Age"... etc., can hardly be considered "drama". See more »

Quotes

Man 1: [over comms] All eyes are up.

Man 2: ETA five minutes.
Collins: Mission is a go. Repeat, you are green to go. Intercept and apprehend the Heinrich brothers. Secure the device. And remember, this mission is covert.

Funny and Entertaining!
6 February 2012 | by Antonia MatthewsSee all my reviews

After seeing the previews, I had already been convinced that I wanted to see This Means War - romantic comedy spy movie - right up my alley. My hubby wasn't similarly convinced.

After getting tickets to an advance screening, we both went - and ended up pleasantly surprised. This Means War was funny, really funny - Chelsea Handler was the hidden gem of the movie.

The movie never took itself too seriously, which was refreshing - it had a few heartfelt moments, but nothing too sappy. It stayed on the side of comedy over romance, and wasn't overly predictable.

There's certainly enough action to keep the guys interested, with enough story to keep us gals entertained. And plenty of laughs for everyone.
