Honey – Elektra

This is cooler than cool. Probably a guilty pleasure, as the movie appears to be a thinly-veiled remake of Flashdance starring Jessica Alba, but it swings like a narcissistic cat.

Tweet's "Thugman" is delicious, Nate Dogg's "Leave Her Alone" is beat-perfect, and Erick Sermon and Redman's "React" causes you to do just that.
