Seven Days in Utopia

(G) ★★☆☆☆

A young golfer has a meltdown in the middle of a tournament, followed by seven days of perspective-patching among mild-mannered, God-fearing folk in rural Texas. Faith and “fore” walk hand-in-hand in this soft-centered, faith-based drama starring Lucas Black of Friday Night Lights. The film lacks surprises and tension, as we work our way down the middle of the fairway toward the predictable climactic finish.

Lena Prima

By Jack Halloween

The singer/songwriter with an Old Vegas pedigree is about to move back to her native New Orleans. For her last local performance (for a while, at least), she paid tribute to her father, the late Las Vegas legend Louis Prima. She performed his hits: “Just a Gigolo,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Sing Sing Sing” and a rockin’ rendition of “Jump Jive an’ Wail.” And she told the story of how Louis sang “Pennies From Heaven” to her when she was a little girl; now she saves pennies as a reminder of him.
