Rated PG-13 · 97 minutes · 2012

Action, Comedy
Likable performers can’t save this silly film from running out of steam. Reese Witherspoon plays Lauren, a woman with a job I can’t really explain—she’s some sort of product-quality tester—who winds up dating not one, but two CIA operatives (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy) who happen to be best friends. The two men find themselves in a competition for Lauren’s hand, and they do all sorts of unethical things to win it. All three are funny, but director McG can’t sustain the premise for the entire running time, and the film runs out of energy. McG, who made the weak Terminator Salvation, is quite a messy director. Full blame goes to him for this one’s failures—because the actors almost pull it off.
