Two things, not really involving “news”, per se.
2. Brad Tytel at The Revealer notes how a few critics have gone after Reese Witherspoon’s Just Like Heaven for, of all things, having too much alleged religio-political baggage in common with The Exorcism of Emily Rose! The loudest critic on this point — and warning, there be implicit spoilers here! — seems to be the New York Daily News‘s Jami Bernard, who calls the film “a comedy about the Terry Schiavo case” and “a tedious, faith-based diatribe against medical science” and “propaganda disguised as a popcorn movie” and “earnest and preachy”. Bizarre. “Faith-based”?
