Tracie Thoms' discipline as a performer, nurtured early on at the Baltimore School for the Arts, has enabled her to be spontaneous in character every week as Kat Miller, an avid detective on TV's "Cold Case." Even in the train-wreck big-screen version of "Rent," she fused her eagerness for performing with the passion of Joanne, a lawyer who just has to make a case for herself - or at least make a scene. Chris Rock's engaged and engaging new documentary "Good Hair," a good-humored exploration of the meaning and impact of female hairstyles in the African-American community, offered Thoms a chance to do something she hasn't done before on-screen.

Think back to a time of poodle skirts and saddle shoes; to a time of teased hair and bottles of pop. Such is the setting of the classic musical, Grease, which tells the story of a love-struck couple, Danny and Sandy, who are torn apart by social pressures from their peers at Rydell High School. Danny, known for his reputation as the "bad boy," being the leader of the rebellious Burger Palace Boys, denies his feelings for "goody-two-shoes" Sandy when she unexpectedly arrives at Rydell in the fall, after their rendezvous at the beach in the summer.

I have had some unfortunate home haircuts in my day, captured in school photos for the amusement of future generations. There's one in particular that stands out. I am about 8 years old, in a maroon polyester dress with a drooping collar that manages to create a "beagle-ears" effect. But it is my hair that commands attention; I am sporting startlingly asymmetrical bangs that slope sharply down my forehead. I remember sitting for home haircuts on a stool in my basement; hair dripping wet, a towel pinned around my shoulders.

Fran Drescher only knows one joke, and she's it: the kvetching Queens queen of stupefying superficiality who possesses an adenoidal accent that could smash atoms and a good heart.Apparently it's enough to sustain her successful half-hour sitcom "The Nanny" but about halfway through hour two of "The Beautician and the Beast" it does begin to feel as strained as Lycra stretched to the detonation point. The setup is TV-lame: As Joy Miller, she's a beauty school (night division) instructor in a far environ of an unnamed New York borough, who gets a blast of publicity when she saves some lab animals during a fire.
