If the script for this comic spin on Fatal Attraction were only a tenth as hot as Uma Thurman, director Ivan Reitman might have had something here. Instead, he's stuck with one joke stretched so thin it's anorexic. Thurman glams down to play Jenny, a woman whose architect boyfriend (Luke Wilson) has no idea she's a babe superhero until he dumps her. Then she turns avenger who's out to boil more than his rabbit. Sound funny? After ten minutes, it isn't.

    “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.”
