My best friend assured me that the film This Means War is fantastically funny, and she was right, as usual. I laughed pretty hard. But I didn’t walk away thinking it was a great movie because there were plenty aspects of the film that bothered me.
The obvious problem is that these two covert agents actively spied on the girl they were both dating. They didn’t just Google her like a normal person, or even look up her information and leave it at that; they bugged her house! They followed her everywhere she went! And worst of all, they recorded her on camera, including a scene during which she had sex with one of them. Of course, the more devious of the two was the one she ended up with (no, I’m not bitter that she didn’t end up with my pick—just really, really irritated at what’s passing for romance).
