Twist at the End

Sometimes the worst movies have the best soundtracks


Honorable Mention

The film: Shrek 2 (2004)

Why it's probably going to suck: An unnecessary sequel to an overhyped kids flick that never held a candle to its Pixar competitors, Shrek 2 should contribute to Mike Myers' rep as a cash-hungry sequel whore.

Why the soundtrack rules: The first film's soundtrack paired the horrid Smash Mouth cover of "I'm a Believer" with the sublime Rufus Wainwright version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" (which makes this the soundtrack that ties Natural Born Killers to I Am Sam, for those of you keeping track). Likewise, Shrek 2 has a bizarre Frou Frou cover of "Holding Out for a Hero" and a lousy Counting Crows song, yet it also has Pete Yorn delivering the best version of "Ever Fallen in Love" since the Fine Young Cannibals. "Rule" is a pretty strong word, but this has got to beat the film.
