The 411 by Maria:

Tuck (Tom Hardy) and FDR (Chris Pine) are Secret CIA Agents. Tuck, a single dad is interested in falling in love again.  Lauren (Reese) is funny as a consumer product evaluator.  Her friend Trish (Chelsea Handler) makes her a dating profile on an online service to help her get back into the dating pool.  When Lauren and Tuck go on a date, on the same day, she runs into FDR who not only manages to piss her off but talks her into going on a date.  Both men are dynamic and interesting and both are go out of their way to find out what Lauren likes to one up the other by using all their resources at the agency including being able to track each other as they are on a date with her.

I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would and here's why:

1) Great movie for couples because it is nicely balanced with action and romance in a way that really works.

2) Chelsea Handler is too funny. Wish she was in it more. It is the perfect role for her as Lauren (Reese's best friend). She is witty and deadpan. "Oh no! I'm Yoko!" and "Do it for all the woman who have to have sex with the same guy every Wednesday night at 9:00 PM while eating Cheetos." Bwahahah hysterical.

4) Tons of action, explosions, gun fights, fist fights, jumping off buildings, car crashes and more. Tuck and FDR are secret CIA Agents.

5) Loads of sexy scenes of Reese trying to decide which guy she loves. Poor Reese she always has such a hard job.

Personally, I think Lauren picked the wrong guy but that is just me!
