Well, I am a huge fan of romantic comedies, and a good movie is a good movie regardless of who is in it…This is not a good movie though.

Directed by McG (Joseph McGinty Nichol) who is a producer of the TV series “Supernatural” and also directed both "Terminator Salvation" and "Charlie's Angels -- Full Throttle," brings his boring, low class touch to the screen, by putting together two spies as wolves and a girl as bait.

Here we have one of the most useless idea to base a movie on, not only will this movie be a waste of time you have to bear with Chelsea Handler, whose acting career is one that needs to end now. Her acting all through the movie will either make you puke or make you laugh if you find mediocre sex jokes funny.

Not only did that add to the fact that this wasn’t one of the best romcom movies of 2012, but having to have both Chris Pine and Tom Hardy together on the same screen, seemed like too much macho for one to bear.

Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) delivery of Lauren is not one that should go in her resume neither is Pine’s (James T. Kirk – Star Trek (2009)) delivery of a spy.

Hardy, who will be playing Bane in the upcoming Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises (2012)”, fitted his role well, but the lame script won’t make you notice.

The story is simple, two field agent spies (Hardy and Pine) get grounded to desk jobs for their carelessness, this granted them enough time for their social lives, which led them to meet a lady (Witherspoon) which they both found fascinating only for them to find out they were dating the same girl.

Pine agreed to back down, feeling he is more of an alpha male than Hardy, but Hardy saw that as a challenge, now both decided to play the game of who gets the girl.
On Lauren’s side is Trish (Handler) who gives her advice on how to choose the best out of the two.

The movie still had times I laughed won’t lie, but the time Hardy got shot in the nuts is not one of them, don’t worry this is not a spoiler you can guess it was going to happen a mile away.

All in all, I'd rather sit down and watch a basketball match, than to see this again (and am not even a basketball fan).
