Gerard Butler adds another career-crushing notch to his career by playing a former soccer star trying to reconnect with his ex-wife  (Jessica Biel), and their son (Noah Lomax). So he fills in as his son's soccer coach. It all seems harmless enough until director Gabriele Muccino crassly starts throwing women at him, demeaning the characters and the exploited actresses who play them,including Judy Greer, Uma Thurman Catherine Zeta-Jones. You don’t need to know more. Just stay away. It’s awful.

    “Vicious”

    Lou Reed | 1972

    Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
