Leonard Maltin's Picks

Judging by the evidence, it isn't easy making a good romantic comedy, even if it has a high-concept premise like this one...

It takes a special kind of ignorance to make Tom Hardy boring, to make Chris Pine unlikable, and to make Reese Witherspoon unattractive.

The best you can say about This Means War is that it would make a good date movie for couples in the witness protection program.

John Wirt
Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

The boneheaded, humorless This Means War cranks out clichés with such frequency that it easily qualifies as an early contender for the most awful film of 2012.

It's an absurdly bright, peppy affair that's clearly been test-screened to death in order to find the "perfect" balance of action and romance.

I guess we should call this a spy-comedy-action-romance. Or just call it what it is: dreadful.

It has plenty for the eyes and ears, but nothing for the brain.

...starts off really badly then upticks slightly due to the great chemistry between...Chris Pine and Tom Hardy...until you begin to think about the plot and the whole thing gets kind of icky.

Not even cutie-pie Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon can hold our attention for long in this ridiculous, bombastic romance.

This Means War overcomes the eternal triangle genre's flaws with unique twists on the basic premise. Lots of them.

A disaster on a conceptual level, McG's latest is a trainwreck of botched stunts, unfunny gags, and tuneless performances, pieced together with minimal interest in any sort of engaging cinematic clarity.

February 17, 2012

Not the worst, certainly not the best of its rom-action genre. But thanks to Chelsea Handler, there are some scream-out-loud moments. But oh, for some snap and sizzle!

An aggressively annoying movie. It isn't just bad. It grates. It frustrates. It baffles with its incompetence.

Who are we supposed to root for, or is it all about the explosions and hunky guys showing off their well groomed eyebrows?

You can imagine how the ball got rolling on "This Means War.'' You can also imagine how the folks who rolled the ball started to lose their minds.
