"We're back! We're bad! You're black! I'm mad!" That's the kind of dialogue we get in the new car-crash, heavy-artillery thriller, "Lethal Weapon 2" (citywide). And, if it suggests a movie poster catch-phrase instead of human speech, it's probably intentional. In 1987's "Lethal Weapon," a quasi-suicidal cop named Martin Riggs, who didn't care if he lived or died, was partnered with a steady, cautious black family man, Roger Murtaugh.

What do the Jelly Beans' "I Wanna Love Him So Bad," The Raindrops' "What a Guy," Lesley Gore's "Look of Love" and Darlene Love's "(Today I Met) the Boy I'm Gonna Marry" have in common? The '60s hits all are featured-- with many better-remembered songs--in "Leader of the Pack," a musical playing through this weekend at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza and featuring current members of the rock 'n' roll revival band Sha Na Na.

Three hours before Whitney Houston's funeral was to begin Saturday, about three dozen fans gathered at a corner four blocks up the street from the New Hope Baptist Church, the closest police permitted them to be. Catherine Graham Ross peered through a pair of opera glasses toward the church at the flashing lights of police cars, past metal barricades and yellow police ropes, and said she understood the need to keep people back. "They're hurting and they need their time," she said, referring to Houston's family.

Rosemary Clooney couldn't have chosen a more appropriate song to close the fourth annual Singers' Salute to the Songwriter on Tuesday night--Jerome Kern's "Look for the Silver Lining." It was in an effort to do something constructive after her sister Betty's death of a brain injury 11 years ago that Clooney came up with the idea of the salute. This year's event at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion raised nearly $500,000 for the Betty Clooney Foundation for Persons with Brain Injury and its offspring, the Betty Clooney Center in Long Beach.

In stark contrast to the recent trend in which any number of producers are enlisted by a hit artist for a new album, the "Dick Tracy" song soundtrack album instead has one producer riding herd over a daunting diversity of name performers. The range of voices includes k.d lang, Erasure, Brenda Lee, Ice-T, Tommy Page, Darlene Love, Al Jarreau and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Behold, the man who brought you "Survivor," "The Voice" and "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" has found religion. Executive producer Mark Burnett is bringing the docudrama "The Bible" to the History channel, the network announced Tuesday. The five-part, 10-hour series is planned for 2013 and will cover the Good Book from Genesis to Revelation, using CGI to re-create famous stories, including Noah's ark and the Resurrection of Jesus. The cable channel also said that Kevin Costner will star in "The Hatfields and McCoys," a miniseries for next year about the feuding families from the late 19th century American South.
