Rob Reiner, 'American Idol'This season we've been treated to some bizarre guest "mentors" on 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). They've basically been guest celebrities brought on to entertain the contestants, like Russell Brand, as they've not offered much in the way of guidance.

Actually, Russell Brand did work with them a bit on stage presence. Rob Reiner, on the other hand, seemed to just want to spotlight the lyrics he'd written for the theme music from 'Chariots of Fire.'

"A song can sometimes set up an entire movie," he said, trying to emphasize the importance of music to cinema. That's great and all, but in what way would that be relevant to the contestants? They were polite and seemed to enjoy his silly lyrics. What do you think?

We're running on the beach now
We're running by the water
We're running in slo-mo
We're kicking up sand
Then there's the Jewish guy in front
And there comes the Christian guy behind
I wonder who's gonna win
It's gonna be close
