Reese Witherspoon has not reached the level of a Jennifer Aniston or Katherine Heigl when it comes to poor box office, but she is getting there. She has made some very bad choices lately, and her latest, This Means War is another seemingly horrible choice. The movie was supposed to open on Valentine' Day. It still will but in a very limited run. When people have seen previews of the movie they have hated it. I mean like really really bad scores. Like so bad that a movie studio was willing to postpone the release date less than a week before it was supposed to be released to try and do something about it. They took out a bunch of jokes to make it go from an R to a PG-13 in hopes that they can convince a bunch of teenagers to go see it. I think most teenagers will be going to see The Vow which is going to make a ton of money and which I will never watch unless my mom trades me food or I am in a coma when she watches it on Pay Per View.

Except when I read about This Means War, I don't even have a clue what the title of the movie is because when you see ads on billboards it is way too confusing. Until I turned up the volume on the previews, I also thought it was a movie about two gay men and Reese Witherspoon was their best friend.
