"Why Do Fools Fall in Love," the extraordinary story of 1950s teen idol Frankie Lymon, fairly bursts onto the screen in a kaleidoscope of color, movement, music and tour de force performances.A trip down a musical memory lane set against the backdrop of the brief life of a gifted and tragic young man, "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" moves at a lickety-split pace, combining social history, old-fashioned yarn-spinning and some cathartic female bonding into a compelling tale of love and self-deception.

Tonight started with a shower scene and a CHEST! 4,582 -- yep, that's about where I lost count of the times ABC blessed us with close-ups of our Bachelor Sean Lowe's bare, shirtless, glowing, absolutely amazing chest. I'm sorry, where was I? Had I played a drinking game tonight while watching, this recap would've been a bit more ... colorful.  Doing a shot for each time Sean bared his beautiful pecks for the camera (and another shot for each time the camera showed Sean's hand on one of the ladies' knees)

Orioles fans often hear about the Oriole Way, "Orioles Magic" and the three World Series titles during the team's glory years in the '60s, '70s and '80s. Even 20-somethings who missed the last title, in 1983, have playoff appearances in 1996 and 1997 and the historic career of Cal Ripken Jr. to hold onto. But for many, being an Orioles fan has been nothing but disappointment, a streak of 14 straight losing seasons and teams that have started out hot, with plenty of players showing lots of promise, only to find new ways to crush our spirits.

HE SAID, SHE SAIDParamount Home VideoNo price given"Rashomon" meets "His Girl Friday" -- well, don't they wish? Two Baltimore newspaper reporters meet on the job, clash and fall in love -- and we see their funny, tempestuous relationship first from his perspective, then from hers -- because, as we all know, men and women see things differently. As potentially clever ideas go, this is a good one.But this modern screwball comedy suffers from an unimpressive script, lackluster directing (The "He Said" segment is helmed by Ken Kwapis; "She Said" is directed by Marissa Silver)

This is a good time of year for what ifs and why nots.* What if we give the Clintons a week off. No press bulletins, no photo ops, a news blackout. The President deserves a kind of news holiday from the nit-pickers. He will get a lot more done, and so will you. Yes, a week without Clintons, and that goes for Socks too.* What if Geraldo, Maury and Oprah run out of transvestites, serial killers who were nuns, women boxers, men who want to be pregnant and children who drink mouthwash? So where will they get their guests?

Sucker for romantic movies with goosebump-inducing music? "Like Crazy" is for you.   I had never heard of "Like Crazy" until today, even though it won major awards at Sundance. IMDB's description of the film sounds very dramatic: "A British college student falls for an American student, only to be separated from him when she's banned from the U.S. after overstaying her visa. " Drama! But I'm a sucker for the trailer, which hits all my secretly romantic heartstrings: Cute British girl, fun American guy, indie-ish music, frolics in the sunset, whispery bedroom talk.

I'm a recent graduate of a college in downtown Baltimore, and for four summers I have occupied Baltimore, working downtown and trying to understand its workings. I feel as if, despite my original discomfort about living downtown, Baltimore itself has adopted me into its community and made me feel a wholehearted Baltimorean. Now, instead of saying I've "occupied" Baltimore for several seasons, I say, without hesitation, that I live here — and couldn't imagine living elsewhere.

Willie Don has passed. There is no denying, the world is a less colorful place. He invited me to his house in the governor's mansion because I wrote him that I missed Maryland and equated him with Maryland. I lived in Baltimore for 10 years (1978-1988), and then Rockville, but moved to Iowa for a husband and his job. We moved back to Maryland. I always think of him nostalgically as "Mayor Schaefer. " He made me fall in love with Baltimore and its Inner Harbor, revitalized, and Maryland, when I moved to there to attend the School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins.

You don't want to drink alone, especially on Valentine's Day. So I set out to find some wines that couples could cozy up to, even if they have differing tastes. In short, I was looking for white wines that weren't fluffy, red wines that weren't scruffy and a sparkler that was not too pink or cloying. Louis Latour `Duet' Chardonnay-Viognier 2005 Vin de Pays des Coteaux de L' Ardeche, France$11. (Distributed by Monsieur Touton Selections) A happy union of chardonnay and viognier grapes yields a wine with a bright apple body and lingering acidity.

If you're looking for something different to do on Valentine's Day, check out a Baltimore Chamber Orchestra concert devoted to one of the most famous composers you may never have heard of -- Ignace Joseph Pleyel. He barely registers on the public consciousness today, but this contemporary of Haydn's and Beethoven's enjoyed heady celebrity status, thanks to his tuneful, graceful compositions and some major business ventures. The music publishing house he founded in Paris in 1795 was a leader in its field for four decades.

On a recent Monday night, 48-year-old Robert Epstein waited outside the cliff-side restaurant Las Brisas in Laguna Beach, Calif., clutching a single peach-colored rose. "I'm about to embark on a very bold, very personal experiment, one that some might call -- and in fact have already called -- crazy," Epstein, the editor in chief of Psychology Today, wrote in a June editorial-cum-personal ad. He was looking for a woman to fall in love with him in a given amount of time, say within six months.

In the movie Love Actually, a widowed father played by Liam Neeson asks his morose grade-school son what's bothering him. Is it his mother's death? Problems at school? Bullies? "You really want to know?" answers the boy. "Well, truth is - actually - I'm in love." His father is surprised but expresses relief that it's not "something worse." The son fixes him with a look of disbelief: "Worse than the total agony of being in love?" Prepubescent boys aren't supposed to be tormented by romance, and neither are their adolescent brothers.
