Unsurprisingly enough an average, unfunny comedy. Amoungst the Love triangle, there's a pointless understory, undeveloped characters and not enough action… More

I enjoyed this. I do have a soft spot for Reese's movies. I find her very cute, funny, and sweet. Plus, I am a Tom Hardy fan...very much so! On that note,… More
