The “This Means War” ratings war is over.
The comedy, starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, will open on Valentine’s Day with its desired PG-13 rating, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Oprah will spend her 58th birthday with media tycoon Ted Turner… on TV, that is.
The birthday girl interviews Turner about his hard work and achievements on Sunday’s episode of “Oprah's Master Class” - Winfrey’s OWN talk show that features a “look into the minds of true modern masters,” according to Oprah.com.
During the interview, Turner, who created CNN in 1980, tells the talk show host how he came up with the idea for the Cable News Network:
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss has some opinions about her Beverly Hills counterparts, and she’s not afraid to share them.
Burruss told CNN she doesn’t agree with Taylor Armstrong’s memoir, which details her marriage to the late Russell Armstrong.
“I’m sure that there were problems there, and I sympathize with her,” Burruss said. “But, I mean, you know, there are two sides to every coin and I just don’t feel the need to speak on someone who is not here anymore. That is just me.”
President Barack Obama probably hopes his plans to reform financial aid programs are executed as well as his unintentional initiative to boost the music industry.
After Obama sang the first line of Al Green's “Let's Stay Together” at a January 19 fund-raising event at New York's Apollo Theater, the song got a 490% sales boost, according to Nielsen SoundScan via Billboard.
The video of Obama singing went viral, prompting 16,000 downloads to be sold that week, Billboard reported.
“Don’t worry, Rev. I cannot sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation,” Obama said to Green (who was also in attendance) after his short serenade.
