A trio of appealing actors (Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine) is trapped in an action-spiked romcom (the guys are CIA agents vying for the same cute product analyzer) death-sentenced by a lack of humor, heart and a coherent reason for being. I could say more, but do I really need to?

    “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.
