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

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.

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.

An unusually focused depiction of male courtship issues, albeit in a surface-y, mainstream sort of fashion.

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.

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.

I have never been in a movie screening that had such a divided reaction as This Means War; on one side film critics moaning and groaning from start to finish, on the other a young audience laughing and cheering through every scene.

Easily consumable, puerile entertainment with some devilish giggles to be had; the action romantic's must-see in a sense.

Entertainment at its fluffiest but as a date movie with some genuine laughs, it works - just overlook the voyeuristic undertones and you'll have fun.

Hardy, Pine and Witherspoon manage to inject just enough charm to make it bearable.

Well acted and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, thanks to engaging performances and a script that successfully excuses its slightly dodgy premise.

Smart, funny and really quite hot, this is worth a look no matter what you think of Charlie's Angels.

McG's film ticks the expected action boxes easily enough but, as per usual, is not designed to be taken remotely seriously.

A lively pace and a nicely warped sense of humour help make this paper-thin action-comedy a mindlessly enjoyable romp.

a frothy romp of a popcorn flick brightened by witty writing and a cast that get laughs by expertly playing it straight with a plausibly implausible plot.

Three fun stars seem to be enjoying the ride in this fast-paced romantic romp.

Witherspoon is a delight and those new franchise guys (Pine with Trek 2, Hardy the upcoming Dark Knight sequel) make engaging frenemies.

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

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.
