In the rush to be the new Wayne's World — a low-cost comedy that reaps millions — comes the tale of Stoney (Pauly Shore) and Dave (Sean Astin), two bu-uds who unearth a frozen cave man (Brendan Fraser) whom they defrost, dude up and take to school.

Plot analysis is useless, since the film's fate rests with MTV comic Shore in his feature debut. (He cameos in Class Act.) Is it buff chillin' with Pauly in search of fundage for grindage and fresh nugs or even a Lisa? Fully? Not even? Don't get your melon twigged. Just gear for a summer of Pauly-speak, and God help us all.

    Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

    This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
