Jay-Z's bold marketing campaign for "Magna Carta Holy Grail" paved the way for a Fourth of July brimming with high-profile buzz, but critical reception to the album has been somewhat mixed.The New York Times claims "Grail" is filled with "ups and downs," while The Los Angeles Times feels it's "full of empty boasts." USA Today, on the other hand, awarded the album a perfect four-star review. Looking good, Reese Witherspoon! The svelte star, who gave birth to son Tennessee James Toth just nine months ago, hit the beach in Malibu this Fourth of July with husband Jim Toth and their baby boy. Well, that settles it. People love pirates more than they love cowboys. After all, when Johnny Depp dressed up as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean it scored HUGE with audiences, making more than 3.5 BILLION dollars around the world! But throw a crow on his head and call him Tonto in The Lone Ranger and it seems people don't exactly run to the theaters. Johnny's latest flick has failed to crack even $10 million at the box office so far!
