    Will watch this for Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, two of only real charisimatic actors I can think of in Hollywood just now.

    On a side note, isn't Reese just getting a tad old for things like this? Cracking actress, and lovely lady but just doesn't seem quite right for this.

    Just caught a preview of this tonight at the Empire.

    This movie was a bucket load of FUN. The story concept is silly...along the lines of say True Lies silliness. But absolutely entertaining and at times laugh out loud funny, largely due to the slickly playful performances from Chris Pine (doing an even better flirtatious Captain Kirk than he did in Star Trek), and Tom Hardy, 2 typical Hollywood good looking secret sevice agents (and close friends/partners) abusing their secret service powers to fight over the same girl they coincidentally find themselves dating. And that lucky girl is played by a wonderful Reese Witherspoon. Lovely to see her playing a comic role again and even though she isnt given a big chunk of the comedy, her charisma shines through while still cutting a fine sexy figure (though her puppiness looks has got a little leaner now) for the good looking boys to fight over.

    Although the film starts off with an action setpiece and some straight off the bat smarmy play from the 2 leads, the real fun kicks off when the "war" starts. There are some hilarious situations and the film zips along at a frantic pace. There is a half ass thriller buried in the film somewhere to drive some kind of action orientated plot but it is very negligible with a thrill factor of zero. But thankfully very little time is spent on that, the film is about the war of the unorthodox dating/courtships between the 2 agents and that's what makes the a absolute blast.

    This would be a perfect Valentines day film (in fact Cineworld is releasing this on that day only before its general release in March). A great date movie to get the girlfriend/wife in a good mood, unless she's the type who wants to cry on a date movie then alright, take her to Titanic 3D...

    8/10

    Nice to hear its good. And no way is Reese getting too old. You gotta be kidding. She's more gorgeous than ever.

    lol, I know and I am supposed to be running a marathon in Birmingham in May...this cinema fetish is very unproductive for my health...munch munch, sorry some popcorn still stuck on my jumper :D

    You know on reflection, you're right, she is, she may look older but she is certainly more desireable now ;)

    Gonna go see this one I think, mainly because Tom Hardy has been brilliant in the last few films I have seen him in. Add on his brilliant turn in 'The Take' he is fast becoming one of my favourite actors.

    Saw it and loved it... its lol in places.
    Only downside is the girl should have been hotter, cos Reese has zero sex appeal.

    I think they scaled her down a bit because they wanted her to appeal to the female audience, it also makes sense that super agents like these have their share of supermodel types, so a 'normal' girl would be desirable by her difference.

    Awesome film though, well worth a viewing.

    I took my girlfriend to see this on our anniversary (her film choice) and I came out having really enjoyed the film and laughing throughout the film, still think she made the wrong choice with regards to the man she chose at the end
