Reynolds gives Oscar-worthy performance If People magazine had been choosing The Sexiest Man Alive back in 1978, the winner would have undoubtedly been Burt Reynolds. He was 42 then; handsome, funny, and just beginning a fiveyear run as America’s top boxoffice star. It seemed that Burt would soon be a card-carrying member of Hollywood’s elite Alist club, right up there with Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino. It didn’t turn out that way. By the mid-80s, Reynolds was reduced to TV shows and lousy roles in bad movies. In 1997, his career got a brief boost with “Boogie Nights,” which earned Reynolds an Academy Award nomination but didn’t lead to better roles – that is until 2001, when German director Sonke Wortmann let the former boxoffice king poke fun at his hasbeen status in “The Hollywood Sign,” an overlooked satire on the movie-making business. We meet Kage Mulligan (Reynolds) in a hilarious prologue, where we learn how the boozy once-great star not only blows his last chance at acting
Mary Anne Hempe Forgotten Video but also derails the career of Tom Greener (Tom Berenger), who was just getting his start in Hollywood. Fast-forward to seven years later, with Tom returning to L.A. after a lengthy sabbatical to try and sell his script for “The Hollywood Sign.” Actually, the script was Tom’s former girlfriend Paula Carver’s (Jacqueline Kim), who was shopping it around when Tom was still an actor. Paula’s script was a downer, though, which is always a hard sell. So Tom stole her idea and made it into a crowd-pleaser. After a brief meeting with his old agent Robbie Kant (Kay E. Kyser), Tom is thrilled to find out that Robbie doesn’t think he’ll have any problem selling it. Sadly, Tom’s joy is short-lived; when Robbie is hit by a truck and killed, all Tom’s dreams of a comeback die with him. Robbie was Tom’s only connection in la-

la land. Or was he? At Robbie’s funeral, Tom hooks up with old pal Kage (still on the sauce), and legend Floyd Benson (the late Rod Steiger, chewing the scenery with glee), an Oscar-winner who hasn’t been able to land work for years. The three has-beens decide to drive up to the Hollywood sign and get drunk; after decades in L.A., none of them have ever seen it up close. But they discover much more than they bargained for. There’s a body in the hills below the sign, which eventually leads them back to Paula and the insane idea of ripping off a local mobster (Al Sapienza) to the tune of $8 million. It’s enough to finance “The
Hollywood Sign” themselves and finally make the comebacks they’ve all dreamed of. It’s a long con that will require a convincing performance from all three – if they can still remember how to act. “The Hollywood Sign” went straight to video, probably because the plot involving the heist is such a mess it’s impossible to tell what’s going on. Oddly enough, it doesn’t really matter since the performances from Berenger, Steiger, and Reynolds more than balance things out. It looks like the three screen vets had a riot together — they’re great fun to watch. Reynolds is a hoot throughout and even has two serious scenes that made me choke up (when he tells Tom about the death of his son, and especially when he’s watching his old movie, 1966’s “Navaho Joe”). Burt Reynolds turned 75 two weeks ago and still works regularly in TV and movies. Here’s hoping there’s at least one more Oscar-worthy role in his future.

Mardi Gras, jazz combine for eventful day By Debra Levy Martinelli Special to pop
Mardi Gras lovers don’t have to go to New Orleans to celebrate. They can don colorful costumes and masks, enjoy great food and music, and support one of the community’s annual festivals at Meet Me on Bourbon Street.

Tickets for Meet Me on Bourbon Street are $25 online at www.jazzinjune.org or $30 at the door. Attendees must be 21 or older.

World Music Series brings Iranian classical music to OU By Holly Jones Special to pop
The University of Oklahoma School of Music presents Iranian classical music by the Oshagh Ensemble as part of the Masala World Music Series at 3 p.m. Sunday in Sharp Concert Hall. The ensemble features Siamak Shajarian, vocalist, accompanied by Esmaeel Tehrani, on the santour and Shahram Mazhari on the tombak. The ensemble will present a free workshop from 2 to 3 p.m. March 5 in the Scholars Room in Oklahoma Memorial Union. Established in 1980, the Oshagh Ensemble is committed to preserving and promoting Iranian or Persian classical music in the United States.
Persian music is an art form that has its roots in thousands of years of emotions, Siamak f e e l i n g s Shajarian a n d thoughts of the people of one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Sometimes non-measured recitative, and sometimes highly rhythmic, it alternates between a mood of profound meditation, a longing for the absolute and an exultant joyfulness. The repertoire of classical Iranian music is called Radif, which means “arrangement” and “order.” Partly composed, partly improvised, the music is predominantly
instrumental, but the style as well as the terminology is derived from vocal models. Ornamentation and improvisation based on twelve principal modes also play important roles in this music. The words of both composed and improvised singing (chanting) are usually taken from the great contemporary and classics of Persian literature. All Masala Series performances are in OU’s Catlett Music Center, 500 W. Boyd, in the OU Arts District. Tickets for Masala Series events are $8 for adults and $5 for students, faculty, staff and senior adults. For tickets and up-todate information call the Fine Arts box office at 3254101.
Two by Two, celebrating the national association’s Year of Collaborative Performance. Many members will perform in ensembles at 5 p.m. Saturday. All events are free.
Norman is their monthly CAN Connect meeting, scheduled for Tuesday at the Norman Public Library, 225 North Webster Ave. Prior to producing and reporting for Discover Oklahoma, a weekly program produced by the Oklahoma Department of Tourism, Lalli worked in the Oklahoma Film and Music Office for almost nine years as field representative. Lalli has also served as creative services director in the television division of Feed the Children.

• Kylie Morgan in concert tonight at the Brewhouse al.
By Doug Hill
If you go ...
For The Transcript
“I’ve been told I have a twang in my voice,” Kylie Morgan said. “Some say that everything I sing is country.” We were in the Moore offices of her label LandRun Records discussing Kylie’s career that has taken off like a rodeo bull out of the chute. One person’s twang is another’s Okie charm. Go away from red dirt and see if you don’t miss it. Morgan’s Sooner State sound is sweet as Cleveland County clover. “My band covers Joan Jett’s ‘I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll’ but mostly we stay true to who we are and that’s country music,” she said. True enough that the Country Music Association chose her as the 2010 top artist in the “Who New to Watch” category. “That’s a real honor because it puts me with people like Laura Bell Bundy and the Band Perry who are played on the radio and CMT,” Morgan said. Possibly even more exciting, this Newcastle high school student has been selected to play the lead role in director Ron Morris’ full-length feature film “Blake’s Country.” Production is set for the middle of this year in
Artist: Kylie Morgan Band When: 9 tonight Where: The Brewhouse, 110 W. Main St. More: $5 admission, all ages
Newcastle high student Kylie Morgan, who topped the Country Music Association’s 2010 list of “Who New to Watch,” will play with her band at 9 tonight at the Brewhouse, 110 W. Main St. Oregon. “Blake is a 15 year old singer trying to get a record deal and live her dream,” Morgan said. “She’s on a tour with other aspiring country singers and there are a lot of obstacles to overcome.”
In some ways Morgan’s real life is similar to the script but without the drama. Her potentially most hazardous challenge now however is being a learners’ permit motorist. “I drove here today,” she said.
“Mom’s still working out the kinks of being in the passenger’s seat. I’m getting a big white 2005 Chevy truck that’s been jacked up a few inches for me and has some new wheels.” That sounds like song materi-
“My creative inspiration comes from day to day things that I do,” Morgan said. “Something happens and I feel this need to put it in a song.” Her career began unconventionally when Morgan wrote “She’s Our Miracle” about a friend’s 3-year-old sister Emily, who was fighting cancer. The composition got attention from the American Cancer Society, which adopted it as its theme song. She began performing it at Relay for Life events regionally, which resulted in significant exposure. Morgan has corporate sponsors and recently sang our national anthem at an Oklahoma City Thunder game. She has opened shows for Gloriana, Steel Magnolia and Ty England, among others. Morgan cited friends and family as being inspirations but in

Farrellys ‘Hall Pass’ forgettable By Christopher Kelly McClatchy Newspapers
Ever since their 1998 modern classic “There’s Something About Mary,” writers-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly have struggled to try to recapture lightning in a bottle and conjure up yet another raunchy comedy with a heart of gold. They have come close a few times — 2003’s blissfully silly “Stuck on You,” starring Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear as the world’s most wide-eyed conjoined twins, remains widely underappreciated, and 2005’s “Fever Pitch” was an appealing, PG-13rated change of pace for the filmmakers. Yet most of their post-“Mary” work reeks of a certain kind of Hollywood desperation: The gags have become more deliberately “shocking,” even as the emotions feel increasingly manufactured. Their latest effort, “Hall Pass,” starring Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis
‘Hall Pass’ 2 stars (out of 5) Directors: Peter and Bobby Farrelly Cast: Jason Sudeikis, Owen Wilson, Christina Applegate Rated: R (graphic sexual content, nudity, strong language, drug use) Running time: 98 min.
as a pair of married suburban men yearning for the freedom of youth, falls right in line with the likes of “Me, Myself and Irene” (2000), “Shallow Hal” (2001) and “The Heartbreak Kid” (2007). Any time a movie needs to resort to two sequences involving unexpected bowel moments for laughs, you know you’re in trouble. Wilson plays Rick, perpetually horny after nearly 20 years of marriage to Maggie (Jenna Fischer). He and his best friend, Fred (Sudeikis), similarly frustrated in his marriage to Grace (Christina Applegate), can’t quite
believe their luck when their wives give them a hall pass — a week off from marriage to sleep with other women. The wives are inspired by a psychologist friend (Joy Behar, awkward and miscast), who insists this strategy will save their relationships. What follows is yet another slapdash bromance in which overgrown children must learn to finally become men (see also: “The Hangover,” “Wedding Crashers,” “I Love You, Man,” and too many other titles of late to count). Except this one is especially slapdash, with more than a dozen characters dropping in and out of the proceedings at will, and illogical chaos erupting at every turn. (The climax involves a jealous barista/club DJ, played by Derek Waters, who smashes Fred’s minivan, and then chases the two men from Providence, R.I., to Cape Cod.) And while Sudeikis is a pleasant-enough second
banana, Wilson remains a little too lackadaisical and glibly above-it-all to play a convincing suburban schlump. The real disappointment is that the Farrelly brothers still have the capacity to push buttons and upend expectations; they serve up a side of subversion with their raunch. One soon-to-be-infamous sequence in “Hall Pass” features Rick being administered medical attention by a naked African-American man, who rescues him from the hot tub at his gym (use your imagination). The Farrellys gleefully exploit stereotypes about race and homosexuality in a manner that is at first brazenly funny until it turns painfully uncomfortable. It’s an all-too-brief reminder of the artistry behind the Farrellys’ brand of lowbrow comedy. Too bad the rest of “Hall Pass” is just lurching, strained and forgettable.
Morgan: Stands up against bullying • continued from page five
one instance, a young lady she’d never met inspired Morgan to write. “It’s about Phoebe Prince who took her own life because of being bullied,” she said. Her thoughts on the subject included the need for bullying to be addressed in no uncertain terms. “I think about how if someone had stood up for Phoebe she might still be here.”
Prince’s case was widely covered in the media and some classmates are currently facing criminal prosecution on the matter in Massachusetts. Morgan’s song will be included in her album “Out Loud” which drops later this year. It has been partially recorded at Reba McEntire’s Starstruck Studios in Nashville. “I’ve been writing and preparing this album for the past two years,” Morgan said. One of my favorites from
Morgan’s set list is called “Country Girl” and it’s available right now on YouTube. “I’m the kind of girl who says it with a smile/ as sweet as molasses downhome style,” Morgan sings. She pledges that we’ll never see Lindsey Lohantype headlines about this country girl. “I’ve been raised to always be a good girl,” Morgan said. “I’ve seen what fame can do and I’ve promised myself and my
family that I won’t let that happen.” Morgan and her guitar band can’t wait to rock a rowdy Friday night saloon. “I really enjoy playing someplace where I can get the crowd pumped,” she said. “I want to give people the best show I can and don’t ever want anyone to yawn or get bored at my performances.” The Kylie Morgan band will perform at 9 tonight at The Brewhouse, 110 W. Main St. Admission is $5, and all ages are welcome.
