Plot wise, the film is quite shaky.

August 21, 2017
In continuing his trend of campy dialogue and cliched special effects, [McG] has made a romantic comedy involving dueling spies that even a monkey could figure out.

The most dire romantic comedy in years.

This Means War finds all new ways to insult 50% of the world's population. Women, hey? Who needs 'em? Not men, that's who! Until they do, I guess

The film's three charming leads help make this superficial comedy worth seeing.

March 14, 2013
The laziest, most cack-handed, most unromantic and most excruciatingly unfunny rom-com I can remember having to sit through.

September 30, 2012
It's not the most realistic spy film or the most tear-enducing romance; however, This Means War works as a middle-of-the-road guilty pleasure.

September 16, 2012
Being a little absurd is acceptable, but completely throwing reality out the window in a film that tries to ground itself in it is pushing it too much.

September 15, 2012
In a turn of events that utterly defies the terrible trailer that's been making the rounds for the last few months, This Means War actually proves to be an agreeably dim-witted combo of testosterone-fuelled action and an estrogen-friendly love story.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
September 13, 2012
This Means War remains a vapid, rushed effort that pays little attention to its characters in favour of making sure it hits every comedy and action beat on time with a reliable but ultimately tuneless drum.
August 22, 2012
An unusually focused depiction of male courtship issues, albeit in a surface-y, mainstream sort of fashion.

Love is a battlefield in This Means War, and the three likable leads are the casualties.

There are better action comedies out there.

May 25, 2012
Their spy-prying...and displays of lunkheaded brawn...aren't endearing; they're horrifying, in ways there's no coming back from. [Blu-ray]

May 11, 2012
This insulting, structureless so-called romantic comedy is a wretched embarrassment for all involved, especially Witherspoon, who is required to act like a ninny while other characters remark on how 'really, really beautiful' she is.

April 29, 2012
...more like a business plan than a movie, and it's difficult to imagine that any of the professionals who collaborated to produce it would ever want to watch it.
Full Review | Original Score: 76/100

Overall, this is solid date night fare. You would be disappointed that you spent the time or money but you'll never need to see this film again.

The fast-paced jokes help overcome the preposterous covert underpinnings.

March 23, 2012
It's a brisk sprint over familiar ground with just enough appeal to action addicts and romantic-comedy lovers to amuse fans of both genres.

... too much action, not enough comedy, and no romance at all ...
