This Means War

The DVD for This Means War came our recently.  I saw it in the theater, but haven't managed to post the review, yet.  Sad.

It is a great movie.  Okay, maybe "Great" is a bit of an overstatement, but it was a lot of fun.  I wasn't expecting much, but I really enjoyed it.  Frankly, I was mostly interested in the company and of course, the pie.  (Tempted out of the house by Rhonda from TheBSCafe with a movie and a trip to The House of Pies.)

Reese Witherspoon was endearing and watching her torture herself as she vacillated between the "bad boy" and the mature man was a lot more fun than it sounds.  The story is actually a bit more complicated than that but there was also plenty of action to keep it (or you) from taking the story too seriously.

Chelsea Handler's married-with-kids suburbanite was almost as entertaining as the "who will she pick" main story.  If you missed it in the theater, pick up the DVD or stream it, whatever.  It's worth your time.

I'll watch almost any movie if it involves pie before or after. :)
