DVD Review - This Means War

About the DVD 
They are the CIA’s best, trained for any situation…except one. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment plays the ultimate spy game as two best friends fight for the right of one woman’s hand in THIS MEANS WAR, coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download May 22. Starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon* (Walk the Line), Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), the laugh-out-loud comedy gets even better on Blu-ray with three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?

The world's deadliest CIA operatives, FDR Foster (Pine) and Tuck (Hardy), are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman (Witherspoon). Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis – each other.

Directed by visionary filmmaker McG (Charlie’s Angels), THIS MEANS WAR features a funny and talented supporting cast including Chelsea Handler (“Are You There, Chelsea?”), Angela Bassett (Notorious) and Abigail Spencer (Cowboys & Aliens). The Blu-ray is loaded with special features including three alternate endings, an uncensored gag reel, outrageous bachelorette party, action-packed deleted scenes and commentaries by McG and more! The Blu-ray and DVD will be available for an average retail price of $25.00 and $20.00, respectively. Prebook is April 25.

My Take on the DVD
This was a very fun movie, and though I did not see it in the movie theater, I have to say that I wish that I had now that I have seen it in my own home. The Director did a great job at developing great dynamics between the characters and the actors made the movie real (even though some of the situations were definitely over the top). On top of the comedy itself, there was also a great love story at the bottom of the plot which everyone will love as well. So get ready to laugh and have a good time as you watch this movie!

"This Means War" is pure fun. If you start to think about the things happening in the movie, you're going to ruin it for yourselves. For instance, the fact that the two CIA operatives have basically tapped and wired every aspect of Lauren's life, or are using their skills to slither through her apartment while she's popping popcorn, is a little disturbing. It's a good thing they are good looking celebrities, because most men would be shot and/or locked up for such things.
