It was somewhat entertaining as far as the action and the antics. The opening scenes would have you thinking this is a typical espionage, spy, action, thriller, but it quickly dissolves into the strange love triangle that pits two secret service type spies with one lady who has a terrible friend.
The pacing is odd, it's almost hard to remember what Tuck and FDR actually do for a living as the central focus is around which one of them will win Lauren's affection. This could have been cuter and funnier, if it weren't for the strange choices these characters make. The way the story was set up, Lauren hit it off with Tuck very naturally, not with any manipulation. She also very quickly did not click at all with FDR. For them to end up together in the end is just ridiculous. She had a genuine connection that was not based on a lie with Tuck after their first encounter. He was shown to desire a deep connection with a woman himself, after the opening scene at FDR's Nana's and Tuck is pointing out to FDR that he wants the depth of connection with a lady that he has with his friend in arms, taking a bullets for each other and such. He wants more than just a physical trip with a girl.
Trish gives Lauren awful advice throughout the movie, like just having sex with someone you barely know is good advice for anyone. I feel sorry for every lonely, affection deprived woman out there who gets this idea in her head that sex is no bigger a deal than trying on different shoes. You are connecting with people on a level that goes way beyond just mental or emotional, every time you do that, which is why it's meant to be shared with only one individual, and within the covering of the covenant of marriage. Movies, music, and all forms of media and entertainment espouse having sexual flings with dates or one night stands, etc, as just.. routine.
The biggest mistake Lauren makes, and the most trivial aspect of this whole movie, is the idea of continually running into her ex who is engaged, and this need to make him jealous, or show off by "having an amazing NEW boyfriend" who is somehow in every way better than him. Lauren who was about to cut ties with FDR completely, decided at the last minute to fake a relationship with him when her ex walks up. This was right after ditching FDR in the club. FDR decided to play along with the narrative, even taking on the role and filling in the shoes of the lie Lauren paints about him - that he is a doctor. All this to try to make her Lauren's ex jealous? Stupid. I highlight this apex of the movie because without it, the entire movie would have fallen apart. In order to have the ensuing rivalry between Tuck and FDR over winning Lauren's affection, and thus a relationship with her, they couldn't have Lauren walk way from FDR after his first attempt to take her out on a date. So they use the "ex boyfriend, make him jealous that he left me" tactic? This is so stupid.
So the movie ends with Lauren choosing the one she was least attracted to and most offended by in the beginning. Throughout the movie, her interactions and thus her relationship with the two men was built in a lot of lies. They both began to try to be something other than themselves in efforts to win her affections. Look if you can not be loved for who you are, then you are just with the wrong person. Don't get your dating advice from Hollywood, even if its meant to be funny. This sort of funny is stupid humor because the true side of it is often harmful, not funny. Good humor is when its funny because its true and the truth of it is innocent and pure. That sort of humor always elevates and lightens the air.
The only redeeming factor is that at the end Tuck is reconnected with his former or estranged wife and son. Which is good, it's better that he was with the mother of his son, then with another woman, but again, I hate the implied theme here, like his original wife was only interested in him after seeing him be some kind of big time secret service spy hero. ... There could have been something else there too, maybe she always felt like he wasn't being honest with her and after seeing him on the news channel and what he was really doing for a living, that now she could get to know the real him but... I dunno. I just hate the implied sense that she had no respect for him until she saw him on live TV in the midst of a car chase.
But I digress. It's just a movie Supposed to be a sort of action, romance comedy.... But I found it rather disingenuous and very manipulative.
