An animated funhouse that delivers on its title and ups its scary-comic impact if you see it in 3-D. Alien dust turns Susan (voiced by Reese Witherspoon) into 50-foot Ginormica on her wedding day. She joins other monsters — Seth Rogen's one-eyed blob is my fave — to fight an alien army led by Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson). WALL-E had more charm, more soul, more everything. But there's enough merry mischief here to satisfy, even if you're way past puberty.

    “I Was Made to Love Her”

    Stevie Wonder | 1967

    Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
