This Means WarRomantic comedy This Means War is headlined by three pretty heavy-hitting actors.

Reese Witherspoon (Water for Elephants) is the peak in a love triangle with Chris Pine (Unstoppable) and Tom Hardy (Warrior). The catch is that, Pine’s FDR Foster and Hardy’s Tuck are the world’s deadliest CIA operatives, and when they play to win something, namely Witherspoon’s Lauren, they play hard and explosive.

Directed by McG (Terminator Salvation), the movie blends action with its sexy side. Comedian Chelsea Handler (TV’s Are You There, Chelsea?), Angela Bassett (Green Lantern) and Abigail Spencer (Cowboys & Aliens) also star.

The R-rated This Means War grossed a not bad $50.5 million when it ran in theaters, despite being panned by critics. Moviegoers liked the film better.
