The mind reels. Kendra Wilkinson, the former Playboy poser married to an ex-Eagle, agreed to trade places with Kate Gosselin and care for a brood of eight kids? That's right, according to ABC. Those are the two moms pulling the season-debut switcheroo on Celebrity Wife Swap at 8 p.m. Feb. 26. The Philly-born Gosselin, a single mom, would sure seem to be getting the better of the deal, since Wilkinson has just one 3-year-old boy, and a husband around the house as well - former Philadelphia Eagles receiver Hank Baskett.

Let's go right out on a limb: If you've got one wary eye on the millennium clock and an uneasy feeling that the Web is more barrier than conduit, if you're concerned by how cheap human life has become but are put off by the rigid prescriptions of a rotting church, you need U2's Pop. Even if you haven't been inside a record store in years. Especially if you thought pop music no longer had anything relevant to say about the human condition. Because beneath layers of campy synthesizers, distorted guitars and other deliberately dense sonic detritus is buried a damn-near brilliant treatise on faith in a rootless age. Pop's 12 songs struggle with doctrine, measure moral decay, celebrate individuality, and ponder the proper etiquette for the coming apocalypse.

When you think of Justin Bieber fans, you picture cute, cotton-candy-fed, prepubescent girls and boys filled with joy.

You may not immediately place the names of Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, but the screenwriters are the Shakespeares of American movie comedy. They achieved this status in part by updating the Bard in 10 Things I Hate About You (a sprightly rethink of Taming of the Shrew) and She's the Man (Twelfth Night). In between they wrote an original, Legally Blonde, an effervescent social satire tweaking mean girls and social-climbing boys, exalting tiny dogs and underdogs. It is with great regret I report that The House Bunny is their Cymbeline.
