Paris, the city of light, love and cinema, casts its dreamy spell once again in Paris, je t'aime, an anthology of 18 love stories from 21 world-renowned filmmakers, all set in various famous Parisian neighborhoods, tourist spots, parks and landmarks. It was a movie that won me over immediately. You couldn't call it perfect - the episodes are uneven - but it has something that sometimes is better than perfection: real love for its subject and themes. Paris, Je T'aime (First Look Pictures)

Janay Rice's comments in support of her husband Ray, tossed out of football by the Baltimore Ravens and the National Football League, have stoked the fires of outrage that have blazed since video surfaced Monday of him hitting her. But this time, it is directed at her. She posted a message to her followers on Instagram saying that she felt like she was living in a nightmare of loss and public humiliation, and she pledged that she and Rice would...

"It's simple," said Ray Lewis, quoting Romans 8:31 after his team's Super Bowl win: "If God is for us, who can be against us?" Yet even though I am pleased by the Ravens' victory, doesn't God love the 49ers just as much? Weren't some of their players also praying for victory? Can we imagine that the Lord of the universe stoops to manipulating the fortunes of NFL teams? Can He possibly care about football at all? No one's theology should be judged by a handful of "newsworthy" sound bites.

Set entirely during a Thanksgiving weekend in New York, clocking in at a mere 78 minutes, Tadpole proves that brevity is still the soul of wit. But when it comes to the success of worldly comic movies, unpretentious wisdom, ironic control and a crackerjack ensemble also have a lot to do with it. The tale of a prep-school boy infatuated - or maybe in real love - with his stepmother has nearly perfect pitch. Oscar Grubman is an original creation: The opposite of Holden Caulfield, he wants to jump headlong into the rye; the opposite of Benjamin Braddock, he can't wait to seduce an older woman and graduate into the seriousness of adulthood.

We thought we'd found true love. Not airport bathroom love. Not high-priced, call-girl love. Not congressional intern boy love. Real love. The kind of love that causes kings to abdicate thrones. "I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as king as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love." That kind of love. The kind of passionate love women dream about even as they settle for accommodating love. The kind of love that comes with dreamy missives that talk of lightning strikes and soul mates and wind-swept dance floors under the moon.

In the crop of late-summer novels there is something to satisfy almost any taste, or even a complete lack of it. Frederick Reuss' delightful second novel, "Henry of Atlantic City" (MacMurray & Beck, 256 pages, $20), is written with a crisp, engaging intelligence. Henry, a 6-year-old prodigy well-versed in the early Christian heresy of Gnosticism and fifth-century Byzantine history, is bounced between friends, relatives and foster care. His father, a security guard at Caesar's Palace, is on the run after embezzling money from the casino.

True to the handle "Ladies Love Cool James," the longtime hip-hop star was greeted at Sunday night's concert at Rams Head Live by legions of adoring fans: Among those waiting to see LL Cool J's muscled form and assured stage presence, a starstruck woman eagerly showed off her cell-phone wallpaper, exclaiming over a photo of herself with him. Posters bearing his ripped torso were launched from the stage and fluttered down into eager female hands. A few minutes later, after a thunderous bass boom and a three-minute video montage, LL burst onstage with unrelenting energy, kicking off an hourlong set of his hit songs and trademark ladies'-man charm.

You have to hand it to us boomers. It's not every generation that pulls off a sexual revolution of such magnitude: In our latter years, as we nurse our beloved bodies' aches and watch our cohorts fall one-by-one before the grim reaper, we can console ourselves with our generation's achievements: Never in American history has a single generation effected so ubiquitous a social upheaval in so short a time.Think of it: In our mother's generation, married in the early Forties, just 14 percent of white married women eventually divorced.
