Brotherly Love
Thanks for featuring the Jonas Brothers (”The 3 Mouseketeers”)! ”It’s about time” EW recognized them. Their YouTube videos are hilarious.

Sports Nut
Will Ferrell has played a basketball player, an ice-skater, and a NASCAR driver (”A Man for All Seasons”). What’s next: a hedge clipper?

Tainted Memory
In your Spring Movie Preview, you say that The Grand — costarring Grizzly Man director Werner Herzog — has ”gotta be funnier than watching a guy being eaten by a bear.” Since the subject of Grizzly Man and his girlfriend lost their lives, printing this was beyond insensitive.

‘Wulf Pack
Your review of Beowulf calls Robert Zemeckis a ”deluded baby boomer” for believing that students are still reading the poem (DVD). Not only is Seamus Heaney’s beautiful translation on my syllabus, but I had students who went on to select John Gardner’s Grendel for their book club.

Personal ‘Jesus’
Thanks for making Nick Lowe’s Jesus of Cool an EW Pick (Music). It was a delicious irony that this tour de force was reissued on the same day Fidel Castro announced he was stepping down. Among the CD’s unforgettable songs is ”Nutted by Reality,” a lyrical twist about castrating Castro. I’m glad you gave one of my musical heroes his due.

The Full Monty
You may think Clay Aiken’s performance in Spamalot is ”tentative,” but I laughed my head off (Stage). His character, Sir Robin, is afraid of his own shadow — of course he’s going to seem tentative!

‘Word’ to the Wise
Calling The L Word ”soft-core porn” is unfair (Television). Many shows with heterosexual romances use graphic material to win viewers but don’t get labeled as such. Lesbian relationships aren’t just male-fantasy fodder.

CORRECTION
We misspelled the last name of The Hills costar Audrina Patridge (Style).
