Times Staff WriterFred Willard's faux-hawk is possibly the best thing about Christopher Guest's "For Your Consideration," a spoof of Oscar season hype co-written with Eugene Levy. It's funny in parts but not half as inspired as past efforts. Still, Willard is a genius at...
Times Staff WriterIf you're familiar with the cult-favorite rock group They Might Be Giants, you won't be needing any encouragement to see the new documentary on the band, "Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns)." If you're not already washed in the blood, the answer is more...
