When the outtakes at the end don't make you laugh, what does that tell you about the movie that preceded them? Let's give the benefit of the doubt to those who probably thought there was a glimmer of potential in the basic concept of "Juwanna Mann." Must have made a sweet pitch to the suits: Hot-dogging, ball-hawking egocentric pro basketball star (Miguel A. Nunez Jr.) goes way too far in displaying (so to speak) his displeasure over being yanked from a game.

WHEN it comes to the Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival, it doesn't matter who you are; they've got you covered. There's Nafeesa Monroe's exploration of her multiracial identity in "Journey to Becoming a Super Woman," and Shyamala Moorty's complex and politically themed dance numbers such as "Balance," in which she marries Eastern and Western movements on alternate sides of her body.

Jobs ARE scarce. Water is even scarcer. Pollution, racial tensions and general poverty have transformed Los Angeles into a dystopian wasteland dotted by pockets of privilege. Sounds like a page right out of 2008, except for the fact that it was written back in 1993, as the setup for Octavia E. Butler's science fiction novel "Parable of the Sower," set in 2025. Writing at a time when there were few women writers and even fewer African American women in the sci-fi genre, the pathologically shy Butler produced a dozen novels and a handful of eerily prescient short stories before she died in 2006 at age 58. On Saturday, the second annual Leimert Park Book Fair will honor Butler, a Pasadena native, with a posthumous tribute.
