Tiger by the tail

There is no doubt that Tiger Woods is an outstanding athlete and the best golfer in the world, but to put him on a pedestal and to regard him as a "poster boy" and as the "Athlete Of The Decade" at this time is not good reasoning.

Review: 'It's Complicated'

"It's Complicated" is perfectly plausible if you are only willing to believe that Meryl Streep sells a whole lot of muffins. She plays a bakery and restaurant owner who lives in a sprawling hacienda on a bluff overlooking the Pacific in Santa Barbara, set on grounds approached by a sweeping circular drive. I've been to Oprah's place, which is only a little nicer. Life is sweet, although she hires an architect to give her a new kitchen. Her current one tragically has only two ovens.

Review: 'Nine'

My problem may be that I know Fellini's "8 1/2" too well. Your problem may be that you don't know it well enough. Both of us may be asking, who exactly was "Nine" made for? This is a big-scale version of the 1982 Broadway production, which won the Tony as best musical. It's likely that most who saw it had either seen the Fellini or made that their business.
