The world's deadliest CIA operatives are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman. 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.
Spy flick meets romantic comedy in this surprisingly entertaining film about two CIA agents who find themselves in competition for the affections of the same beautiful woman. Agents FDR (Chris Pine) and Tuck (Tom Hardy) are accustomed to using whatever means necessary to complete a mission--and that mentality has a tendency to bleed over into their personal lives. The two agents are also close friends, so when they discover they're both dating Lauren (Reese Witherspoon), they enter into a gentleman's agreement that stipulates they not interfere with one other, allow Lauren to choose the best man for her, and walk away from Lauren if seeing her begins to affect the men's friendship. The agreement quickly degenerates into a pissing contest of epic proportions thanks to the men's competitive natures and the arsenal of government resources at their disposal. Oblivious to the rivalry and the high-tech circus going on around her, Lauren desperately tries to figure out which of the two men is right for her. Her married friend Trish (Chelsea Handler) offers plenty of advice, assuring Lauren that just because she's dating two guys at the same time, "You're not going to hell, but if you are, I'll be there to pick you up." What makes this film so good is its perfect blend of high-action spy caper, laugh-aloud humor, and romance--all skillfully delivered by a talented cast. --Tami Horiuchi

I could not give this 5 stars because she chose the wrong guy!! She chose the womanizer who had sex with her, knowing all of his coworkers were watching and recording everything. they did. With that ending, it hardly qualifies as a romance..... just sayin'.
Reese looks great, she and Chelsea Handler are funny together, there are two gorgeous men, some sweet dates, some sexy dates, great bromance banter between the guys, and plenty of action so there's something for everyone. I would definitely watch again!
But, I was working my way through Tom Hardy's work history via IMDB and saw that this could be rented for a reasonable rate, so one windy day I rented it.
Now, I agree with everything everyone writes about Chelsea Handler if they wrote that she was awful. Her character was obnoxious and crude and filthy. I'm willing to bet I just talked 80% of you into renting and/or buying the movie with that one sentence! Anyway, I didn't appreciate her character AT ALL. But, I filter out the stuff I don't like and move on to what I do like.
I liked Tom Hardy's character in this. It was a different than some of his other stuff. The guy's got "swagger", what can I say? I was routing for him. Chris Pine's character, I'm sorry to say, is like all of Chris Pine's characters. He was handsome, slick, charming and sexy. I'd like to see him do something else, but this was a good vehicle for him. Reese Witherspoon was also "typical", so that made the movie very cute and funny. A typical Rom/Com and what's wrong with that? I liked it so much that I bought the movie after renting it, which is rare for me. Now, I can fast forward past Chelsea Handler and I don't have to deal with her vulgarities. Win/Win in my book.
