Reese gets rowdy

There are few things more likely to land a celebrity in this space than a wildly overinflated sense of self-importance. The only thing funnier than a famous person saying or doing something stupid is someone saying or doing that something stupid whilst swept up in a maelstrom of delusion and self-involvement.

Booze helps too.

Little is fair in 'This Means War'

Well-intentioned action-comedy falls short
One of the unfortunate aspects of today's Hollywood is the obsessive need to produce work that appeals to the broadest possible audience. When you try to appeal to everyone, however, you wind up diluting the product. You wind up with a film that still has the stink of excessive focus grouping all over it. It's just too bad when it happens to a movie that should have been better - a movie like 'This Means War.'

It's the latest offering from director McG ('Terminator Salvation') and on paper, it looks like it could strike the ideal balance between rom-com and shoot-em-up.

On paper.
