# 275 – This Means War

To keep things on a lighter note, I will do a review on this romantic-comedy I saw when I was in Tallinn again. I wasn’t thrilled about it because I had heard bad things about it and usually those bad things happen to be perfectly correct. And that in mind I sat in the cinema and watched This Means War.

To be honest, I liked it, I liked it a lot! I don’t know if I am foolish to do so or I am just a lousy wannabe movie critic or I had one of those “I love going to the movies” feelings that took over my body – who knows. But I felt like I had to be honest, so there you go, I liked it a lot. The reasons actually go beyond the movie itself. The story was cheesy and unbelievable to the furthest degree but isn’t it with all romantic comedies?

Reese Witherspoon was the leading lady who until dating two guys at once was unlucky with love. But when she starts dating Tom Hardy after meeting him in the dating network-site where her page was set up by her friend (who I don’t even want to talk about) she also meets Chris Pine. There you go, two reasons why to see this movie, the chemistry between Pine and Hardy was just a sight for the eyes itself. I also think that Hardy’s lips on a big screen had a mysterious effect on me.

Of course this movie has a 6,4 score on IMDb and of course the movie gets bad reviews because the whole idea behind it is ridiculous beyond measure but I am not looking at that. I know romantic comedies could be much more logical, they should but it’s not how they are. The rom-com’s have become unreal stories with unreal hot people being single in the beginning of the movie – this is how they are and this is what I am not even looking at. I guess I am saying that I liked it because I was entertained, the fun side of me enjoyed it and the serious and critical side of me was resting at that time because if not, I would have felt bad of spending my time and money on that. Besides, what woman wouldn’t like a bromance between Chris Pine and Tom Hardy – I know I would and I did.
