There's no doubt that Reese Witherspoon has talent. Her comedy chops and screen presence have a disarmingly earnest effect that can be used to hilarious and endearing ends. None of this is on display in the romantic action comedy This Means War (rated PG-13 for sexual content). A brainless series of clichés, flat characters, and predictable plot turns, the film could be an example of "what not to do" in a screenwriting class.
