This means war is a great movie to watch if you want some date ideas. CIA agents/operatives FDR Foster and Tuck Hansen are best friends that are inseparable. They both start to hang out with the same girl names Lauren. None of them know that they are going out with the same girl. After a few days, they find out and they make a pact that each week one of the best friends will take Lauren out for a date and at the end, she will have to choose who to pick. The movie is funny because they are basically getting to date the same girl which is weird but it’s a great movie to watch. I rate it 4 out of 5. @BirdieBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Pretty fun, combines campy spy-action with rom-com. It kind of bounces back and forth between shallow and nuanced character development and breaks some tropes and stereotypes but completely plays into others? I liked that the male characters had a strong relationship with each other (not immediately nullified by competing over a romance) and that one of them was divorced with a kid....both unusual things for rom-coms.
Fun watch for adults/maybe older teens

This movie is silly as hell. I got some laughs out of it, but the CIA using resources for 2 of their employees trying to get a lady is ridiculous. Tom Hardy also looks like he's never held a gun, it's so comical to me! All that said, worth watching if you got nothing else to do!

Surprisingly good! Spies, romance, comedy and suspense! What more do you need for something fun and easy to watch! Chick flick that some guys may like too. Of course, it's an unrealistic storyline.

Silly, but enjoyable. I don't like chick flicks much, but this had the action element that made it less sappy. And Chelsea Handler's character had the best lines!

Bit of action but not hilarious.

This was a fun romantic comedy! A light film starring three of the best actors of the past decade.

This means war involves two federal agents who are trying to take down a “bad guy” but end up falling for the same girl. It is a perfect date night movie with a great mix of romance and action. So it is just an overall entertaining movie that everyone should see. The costumes in this movie are very basic for every character but they also suit the roles that they play. The props that they used the most was the guns that shows how unprepared the one guy is and the step behind. The use of music truly fits with what is going on in the movie. Most of the camera movements or cinematography involved close ups on their faces or moving camera shots. This movie takes place in L.A. The main characters are two guys F.T.R and Tuck, and there is also Lauren, the main girl in the movie who the guys are after, as well as her best friend. The target audience for this movie is at least pg 13 and it is good for any age older than 50 too. Overall I think they could have shown more of the other side, like more of their job and also the so called bad guy so we could have a better understanding of who they are. But other than those minor things, it seems to have been one of the better movies that has been made and put out with in the last three to four years or more recently.

FDR Foster: I don't believe in mistakes. It's the mistakes that make us who we are.
