OVER­RATED

The cam­paign be­hind ‘Life as We Know It’: While there are plenty who rel­ish Josh Duhamel in his skivvies on the many bill­boards trum­pet­ing this com­edy, we’re al­ready not sold. Al­though there’s surely a funny movie in a story of new par­ents in 2010, the idea of one that com­pares a man­child in briefs with an in­fant in di­a­pers for firstim­pres­sion laughs tells us this might not be it.

Phoenix: Far be it to rain on any­one’s mu­si­cal pa­rade since there were few bands that scored sum­mer 2009 as well as these French pur­vey­ors of elec­tro-dusted gui­tar pop. But as fun as con­fec­tions such as “Lisz­to­ma­nia” and “1901” are, we’re won­der­ing if the magic can last for a fol­low-up, be­cause as we re­ally think about those hits, we’re hard-pressed to tell much dif­fer­ence be­tween them.
