This Means War is the story of two CIA operatives, Franklin ‘FDR’ Foster (Chris Pine) and Tuck Hansen (Tom Hardy) who are partners and inseparable best friends. Together, their good looks, covert abilities and combat skills rank them among the CIA’s elite. However, their longstanding personal and professional bond is put to the test when they each meet Lauren Scott (Reese Witherspoon). Tuck had placed an online profile on a dating site and caught Lauren’s attention and they went out on a date. After their date, she is in a video store and bumps into FDR who hits on her and asks her out. Both men are super excited and the next day at work describe this perfect woman from the night before. Tuck shows FDR her picture from the dating site and discovers they both had met Lauren the previous night. Being best friends, they agree to let her choose but both of them can’t help but use their skills to keep tabs on her and each other.  FDR and Tuck both fall hard for the beautiful blonde and use an array of high-tech gadgetry against each other in an all-out battle for her love.
