Plus, it's got Matthew McConaughey's total year of 'dudeness,' Suri Cruise being cuter than a whole new generation of budding superbabies and Amy Winehouse in all her toothy glory.

In other words, if you have even the slightest interest in the flaws, failures and triumphs of the famous or nearly famous this year, "Celebrity Eye Candy: Best of '07" is the only show you need to watch.
