Action-Comedy: Two CIA agents put their friendship aside as they battle for the affections of a woman who's dating both of them but is unaware of their connection.
FDR (CHRIS PINE) and Tuck (TOM HARDY) are two covert CIA agents who work in a field office in Los Angeles and have been after a criminal, Heinrich (TIL SCHWEIGER). When not working, FDR is a ladies' man not looking for any sort of commitment, while Tuck is the divorced father of a young boy and is just starting to think about returning to the dating world. Accordingly, Tuck tries his hand at online dating and ends up matched with Lauren (REESE WITHERSPOON), a consumer product tester/researcher whose profile was placed by her sex-obsessed best friend, Trish (CHELSEA HANDLER).

Lauren isn't happy she did that, but doesn't mind meeting the handsome Tuck, although her reaction isn't initially the same about FDR who she accidentally bumps into later. But he's instantly attracted to her, a troubling development for the men and their friendship when they realize they're interested in the same woman. Setting a number of ground rules (including not sleeping with her until she chooses between them) about how to deal with this, they leave it up to her to decide.

The only problem is she can't, and thus goes on a number of dates with both men, unaware of their real jobs or even that they know each other. As they separately use their agency resources to learn about and thus try to impress Lauren, FDR and Tuck risk their friendship and working partnership as things escalate in their efforts.

Teens might be drawn to it, especially if they're fans of any of the three leads.

    I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

    I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

    I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

    Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

    I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
