This Means War depends on audiences buying into a rather predictable premise of two CIA agents falling for the same woman. Ten years later, the film has its moments. Not many, of course, but they are there and you can’t help but laugh. Of course, the situation is too far-fetched and preposterous in and of itself! The minute that both FDR Foster (Chris Pine) and Tuck Hansen (Tom Hardy) learn they are both dating Lauren…"This Means War: Rom-Com Marks 10 Years in 2022"

Addressing the gender disparity that troubles Hollywood, This Changes Everything is one of the most important documentaries of the year. I can’t exactly point to when all the focus started turning to women directors not getting the same opportunities as men.
