The Comeback

I was flipping through an issue of Variety when this word jumped out at me and lodged in my eye:

bullseye

comeback_bullseye

I try to stay on top of linguistic evolutions and other words in transition—such as Web site, web site, website—and this was, like, the third time this spelling reared its ugly head in the span of a few weeks. So, fingers crossed, I found the original Newsday review for The Comeback, which did (thank gods) have the correct spelling:

bull's-eye

That's so bizarre, that the studio would alter the spelling when all they had to do was cut and paste. I hate them.
