    Way Out of Sync

    Edison Force (Sony) Gritty cop stuff must write itself -- just make sure everyone's tough, corrupt, and talking like they stole Mickey Spillane's thesaurus. Then cast Justin Timberlake. Screech! Employing the talented (at music) popster as a crusa...

    ABBA Fab - Mamma Mia! makes merry at Fair Park; All About Bette gets eyes rolling

    Mamma Mia!, defying critical drubbings for half a decade, has been called a Twinkie of a musical. But that's an insult to spongy Hostess snack cakes that have stood the test of time. Think of it as more of a theatrical baklava: layers of tissue-thin ...
