Say It Isn't So features Heather Graham and Chris Klein fucking each other's brains out until they discover they're sister and brother. Yup, it's an incest comedy produced by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, and directed by their protege J.B. Rogers, but with a script by Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow that is minus a shred of Farrelly wit. Welcome to the film universe where crap (Exit Wounds, The Mexican) cashes in, and movies of originality and imagination go begging. The latter are either film-festival favorites fighting for distribution or films that do manage to get released and then have to battle to stay in theaters for more than a week. Here are two of the best of this courageous breed.

    “Money For Nothing”

    Dire Straits | 1984

    Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
