Dear Amy: I am a 41-year-old happily married woman with three children. I graduated from college 20 years ago, and I have remained in touch with a friend, "Jerry." He does not tell his wife that we are in touch or that we meet on occasion. Long ago, Jerry had feelings for me. I never knew he felt that way. But his wife (then girlfriend) knew and disliked me.

Fox has a well-deserved reputation for narrowly focusing on easy-to-market movies with a clearly defined audience and built-in sales hooks: "Horton Hears a Who," "The Fantastic Four," "Live Free or Die Hard."
