We’re back geeks with another geeky giveaway sure to get your action bones going! Our forever friends at 20th Century Fox have saddled up with two copies of the upcoming spy comedy, This Means War, on DVD to give out to some lucky geeks. Haven’t heard of the flick? First – Shame on you! Second – let’s see what the studio says about it:
They are the CIA’s best, trained for any situation…except one. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment plays the ultimate spy game as two best friends fight for the right of one woman’s hand in THIS MEANS WAR, coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download May 22. Starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon* (Walk the Line), Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), the laugh-out-loud comedy gets even better on Blu-ray with three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?
The world’s deadliest CIA operatives, FDR Foster (Pine) and Tuck (Hardy), are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman (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 – each other.
Jog anything in your geeky brains now? It’s kind of like a mash-up of True Lies and Mr. & Mrs. Smith in my opinion. Reese Witherspoon is smoking fine (as always), plus the chemistry between Hardy and Pine is hilarious! I mean think about it, two spies using the vast resources of the CIA to win the affection of a girl while knocking the other guy out of contention? Who wouldn’t want to do that?
