"This Means War" is a 2012 movie starring Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as the world's deadliest CIA operatives who are also inseparable partners and best friends… until they fall for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis ever — each other. 

Franklin Delano Roosevelt Foster, better known as FDR (Pine), is handsome, suave, and self-assured, and possesses a preternatural ability to attract beautiful women. His best friend and partner James, better known as Tuck (Hardy), is ruggedly good-looking and dangerous, but not nearly as skilled at romantic matters. Together, their unrivaled flair, formidable covert abilities, and good looks, make them the best of the best among CIA agents. But FDR and Tuck's longstanding personal and professional bond is put to the test when they unwittingly begin dating the same woman. 

That would be Lauren Scott (Witherspoon), a senior product evaluator for a leading consumer advocate publication. She has a far-reaching knowledge of products ranging from ovens to smartphones, and is a skilled leader at her workplace. What Lauren is not good at is meeting men, until her best pal Trish (Chelsea Handler) takes matters into her own hands and signs Lauren to an on-line dating service — which Tuck had recently, and reluctantly, joined.  

Tuck and Lauren's first date is full of sparks and promise. After they say their goodbyes, Lauren wanders into a video store, where, coincidentally, FDR is looking for yet another romantic conquest. Unaware that Lauren has just met Tuck, FDR is intrigued when she blows off his advances. Lauren ultimately gives in to his charming "won't-take-no-for-an-answer" tactics, and agrees to a date.

Lauren can't believe her good luck. She's gone from being alone to dating two gorgeous, perfect men. Meanwhile, the guys are quick to realize they're deeply attracted to the same woman and their competitive instincts kick in. Ground rules are established. May the best man win. Friends become foes, and every covert trick in the book is deployed.

This means trouble. This means war.
