This week’s DVD pick

REESE Witherspoon is caught between the affections of two CIA agents, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, whose brotherly relationship is soon dissolved by the love triangle.

This Means War

Cert. 12

The pair has the FBI’s arsenal at their disposal in their quest to derail each other’s dates with the ever-perky Witherspoon.

Made by the creator of cult teen TV sensation, The O.C, This Means War borrows heavily from the plot of Mr and Mrs Smith and is about as camp and far-fetched as an action/rom-com can get.

Moments of acerbic brilliance are delivered by irreverent talk-show host, Chelsea Handler’s, cameo as Witherspoon’s right-hand pal and the banter between Pine and Hardy just about make this watchable.
