It's probably the movie event of the summer if you're an eight-year-old girl who doesn't get out much. Otherwise, watching Hilary Duff as an L.A. student who meets her prince (Chad Michael Murray) on the Internet and loses her cell phone instead of a slipper is instant sugar shock. The one in this review goes to Jennifer Coolidge as the Duff's stepmom — a Botox freak who runs a diner to finance her own extreme makeover. She's the only life in this sad-sack party.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
