It's extremely smart promotion to release THIS MEANS WAR
on an odd day of the week. Seeing as how next Tuesday is Valentine's Day, Fox is choosing to capitalize on all of the "love stinks!" women who don't have men in their lives who will pay good money to go watch two hunks fight over one chick. The catch is that that women is played by Reese Witherspoon
, who in spite of her auspicious indie upbringing and previous fanboy devotion seems to have slipped into that world of "Well, I guess you think you're special now that you've won an Oscar" contempt pool. Not fair, I say. Reese is still pretty without being too pretty, so marketing her in this movie is brilliant because she's relatable but has the insane comedic timing and professionalism that made her a success off of crazy flicks like ELECTION and FREEWAY. I'm putting money on this venture. Hell, look at that last photo and tell me that Reese isn't thinking, "Yeah, all of you thought I wasn't hot enough to pull this role off. You're all just staring at my titties now, aren't ya? Aren't ya? Suckers!!"
