A pair of CIA aces and best pals (Chris Pine & Tom Hardy) find themselves wooing the same woman (Reese Witherspoon), and utilize all their spy skills, not to mention millions of dollars worth of bugs, hidden cameras and even airborne drones, in a battle for her heart. This is creepy and usually called stalking. Exactly how stupid does the director known as “McG” think his audiences are? This smarmy McMovie is not funny, exciting, romantic or remotely believable, and it’s guaranteed to piss off fans of both the action and rom-com genres. It’s the kind of flick that’s so bad you leave the theater spitting.
