How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life

And ogle Stella Stevens in the process.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Coming at the tail end of Hollywood’s innocence, 1968’s How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life is one of those old-school romantic comedies that indulges in such outdated notions that a woman’s place is in the home.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Rather than retire, the Jackass franchise flirts with fiction — if not sexually harasses it — in the semi-scripted, wholly hilarious Bad Grandpa.


Comedy

Rod Lott

Riotous as they are, the Jackass movies have not been immune to the law of diminishing returns — in terms of laughs, not box office. That the fourth feature, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, is the funniest since the first, 2002's Jackass: The Movie, is something of an unexpected achievement.

Search and destroy

Snotty rock outfit Brother Gruesome inspires shock, awe and a heavy dose of Destruction


Music

Joshua Boydston
“This is a diverse group of songs written in different times and places, but all of them are intended to be hard-hitting with a palpable emotional impact,” Jackson said. “The simplicity of it being (just) us two has allowed us the space and time to really focus on our tones and recording style.

With the Cold War heavy on people’s minds and all kinds of insanity going on in Russia, our most formidable Cold War enemy, people’s minds inevitably turn to the eventual nuclear apocalypse that will end us all.

Wanda Jackson


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Wanda Jackson. Need we say more? The First Lady of Rockabilly and The Queen of Rock hasn’t performed solo in three years, but she’ll do exactly that at a benefit concert for the Start Helping Impacted Neighborhoods Everywhere (SHINE) Foundation, a charitable organization that supports programs encouraging youth community service. The outdoor performance takes place during the larger SHINE event, which runs from 6 to 10 p.m. May 15 at The Greens Country Club, 13100 Green Valley Drive. Admission is free, but a minimum $10 donation is requested. Call 751-6266 or visit thegreenscc.com.

Andrew Jackson Jihad


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

General rule of thumb: The dumber the name, the better the band. Andrew Jackson Jihad might have a silly moniker, but the Phoenix-based folk-punk outfit is lauded for its witty, socially conscious lyrics and raucous live performances. See them with other questionably named acts Cheap Girls and Dogbreth 8 p.m. Monday at The Conservatory, 8911 N. Western Ave. Tickets are $12. Call 607-4805 or visit conservatoryokc.com.
