In "The Tall Man" a figure fitting that description is snatching the children of a remote Pacific Northwest town. Though the local nurse (Jessica Biel) had been skeptical of the legend up to that point, once he breaks into her home and takes her son she springs into action trying to get the boy back. What happens then is a maddening swirl of events widely open to interpretation: the nurse finds the Tall Man; the whole town is complicit in a conspiracy; the nurse is insane, or she's guilty.

Marilyn Hagerty's review of the Olive Garden in Grand Forks, N.D., is hardly about the restaurant's “warm and comforting” chicken Alfredo or the “attractive” bar area -- it's the purest gauge of all that is America. That's if you believe the snarky legions who bashed the 85-year-old reviewer's piece last week and turned it viral, the diners who then defended it and the pundits who have since spun it into a touchstone for a feisty debate about the country's culture. Much has been made of Hagerty's March 7 evaluation of the chain restaurant for the Grand Forks Herald.

It doesn't take 3-D trickery to see everything coming at you from a mile away in "The Final Destination," the silly and predictable fourth installment in the lucrative thriller series about pretty young people attempting to cheat death. Director David R. Ellis and writer Eric Bress, who previously collaborated on "Final Destination 2," unimaginatively rehash the earlier films' basic premise: Someone foresees a gruesome group death that may or may not play out in reality if the order of the originally envisioned victims can be disrupted.

Guy Fieri shot back at New York Times critic Pete Wells for a scathing review of his new Times Square restaurant, Guy's American Kitchen & Bar (written entirely in rhetorical questions). Some are even calling it the most brutal restaurant review ever. On today's "Today" show in an interview with Savannah Guthrie , the spiky-haired Food Network star said: "I thought it was ridiculous. I mean, I've read reviews - there's good and there's bad in the restaurant business, but that to me went so overboard, it really seemed like there was another agenda.
