Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: Okay, so we have this cute girl who meets a sexy guy for coffee and they hit it off. A few minutes later (give or take) the same girl, meets another sexy guy, and they also hit it off.

Now in any normal situation, the girl would probably date both guys, right? Well, in 'This Means War' directed by McG, that's not so simple.

The girl is Lauren Scott (Reese Witherspoon) and the two guys are FDR (Chris Pine) and Tuck (Tom Hardy). They happen to be, unbeknownst to Lauren, BFF'S and CIA operatives.

Chelsea Handler's R-Rated Jokes Cut From 'This Means War'

Chelsea Handler
Chelsea Handler's bawdy jokes have been cut from pal Reese Witherspoon's new movie in a bid to land the film a PG-13 rating.

But reports suggest officials at the Motion Picture Association ratings board have reconsidered the rating after Fox bosses agreed to cut out Handler's risque gags.

If you’re family is like mine, you probably got one for Christmas. I have an aunt who has given on to me every year since I was seven.

Now, as soon as she leaves the room, I throw my gift right in the trash without even a modicum of guilt. Still don’t know ...

Disney XD’s Mr. Young is a show about a child prodigy who returns to school to teach kids his own age. I recently had a chance to talk to Brendan Meyer, the star of Mr. Young. Here’s what went down.

It's been two years since Reese Witherspoon, who won a Best Actress Oscar in 2006 for Walk the Line, has graced a movie, unless you count her voicing a nearly 50-foot-tall animated woman in Monsters vs. Aliens. But while moviegoers may feel like she's been away for a while, Witherspoon has shot three movies that will hit theaters over the next year. In How Do You Know (rated PG-13, opening Dec. 17), she's an Olympic-caliber softball player whose career has hit a wall and who finds herself caught romantically between a rakish star pitcher (Owen Wilson) and a broke businessman (Paul Rudd).
