A goofy sense of inconsequentiality is an underappreciated trait in comedies. There’s an abiding charm to movies so low in their stakes and so loose in their order that they feel as if at any moment they might fall apart. Films like “Caddyshack” and “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” are good examples, but outside of the loose absurdities of some of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s films (“Step Brothers,” ‘’Anchorman”) most of today’s big-screen comedies are more conceptually tidy.

If you’ve ever walked into a store and were embarrassed to tell the salesperson your real size, or entered the gym locker room and wanted to hide, you’re part of the target audience for Amy Schumer’s “I Feel Pretty.” Whatever age or gender you happen to be.

Viewers may be forgiven for being confused by Wes Anderson’s movies. Constructed with dollhouse fastidiousness, their hyper-symmetrical, squared-off tableaus dressed with gorgeous textures and color palettes — and their clipped dialogue delivered with deadpan sincerity — they depict a universe with only glancing resemblance to the real world.

Texas country singer Cody Johnson looks at Saturday’s concert at the Extraco Events Center where he’s headlining a lineup of Mark Chesnutt, William Michael Morgan and Shotgun Rider, and thinks how far he’s come in Waco.

Nashville country singer Maggie Rose has been playing and performing for more than 10 years, but Thursday night marks something new: her first show in Waco.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Last October, Jason Aldean was in a Las Vegas hospital visiting some of the victims injured in a mass shooting at a country music festival a week earlier. On that Sunday afternoon, the country star turned to his longtime manager, Clarence Spalding.

“Why can’t we go backward for once?” wonders the protagonist of “Ready Player One” shortly before gunning his “Back to the Future” DeLorean in reverse. “Really put the pedal to the metal.”

Spring weather is bringing more than flowers and Waco music fans might want to stock up on insect repellent with regional and national acts scheduled for outdoor night concerts, many set along the Brazos River’s stretch through Waco.

Several years ago, I team-taught an interdisciplinary class with the subtitle of “the city and the soul.” One of the points that we sought to make to the students was that politics — at least how classical philosophers understood it — involved far more than just the ordering of material goods, the structure of the state, and questions of representation. Politics involved creating a civic arrangement that would contribute to the individual citizen’s soul flourishing.

“Paul, Apostle of Christ” comes from Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Affirm label, an offshoot that has produced such Christian-themed dramas as “Heaven is for Real,” “Soul Surfer” and “Risen.” Less interested in blunt proselytizing than more open-ended explorations of faith and its challenges, Affirm films have gratifyingly avoided the kind of pietistic Sunday-school pageantry that characterizes so many motion pictures of the genre.

There are big celebrations going on right now in the music world as a major anniversary rolls around. Composer Johann Sebastian Bach was born 333 years ago this week in the little town of Eisenach, Germany. Of that event, columnist and Bach aficionado William F. Buckley Jr. said Bach’s birth was “as though God had decided to clear his throat to remind the world of his existence.”

Editor’s note: Nibbles is Access Waco’s bi-weekly mini-profile of Waco-area restaurants and food trucks that are new or have had a major change in menu or operations.

Romeo wears tennis shoes in Baylor Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” but that’s not an invented insult to give to Tybalt, who’s in a Dolce and Gabbana-inspired jacket. There’s an electric guitar or two as well, and costume designs that mix Italian Renaissance accents with lines from contemporary Italian haute couture.

The first feature from writer-director Cory Finley, “Thoroughbreds” is a darkly comic tale — shot through with the hard-boiled fatalism of film noir — about two teenage girls in an affluent Connecticut suburb of New York.

Unlike many classical musicians, an organist can’t travel with his or her instrument, but has to perform on someone else’s. At the same time, it takes an organist’s individual talent and interpretation to bring that instrument to life, notes Grammy Award-winning organist Paul Jacobs.
