Long, strange trip
"Becoming Cary Grant" nods to certain classics ("North by Northwest") and underrated gems ("Penny Serenade"), but it's a little obsessed by the actor's most notorious role: LSD user. Grant's drug-induced therapy sessions, as well as his mommy issues, are noteworthy, but they allow less time for clips from "His Girl Friday" and other charmers.

We've all had nightmares about being haunted by Courtney Love, but never quite in the way that she hovers over the proceedings in "Menendez: Blood Brothers," a docu-movie that makes the case that the parents in the real-life family murder had it coming. Love plays the neglectful mother with the right mix of pathos and creepiness. I'm as eager to hear the next Hole album as the next person, but I'd rather see her tackle juicy roles like this.

A night at the theater
"The 71st Annual Tony Awards" appears to be doing its best impression of the Oscars with host Kevin Spacey welcoming Taraji P. Henson, Tina Fey, Scarlett Johansson, Olivia Wilde, Keegan Michael Key and Orlando Bloom. Despite the ramped-up star wattage, the spotlight will be locked on Bette Midler, the hands-down favorite for "Hello, Dolly!"

Tough as nails
Double-cross Niecy Nash at your own peril. In "Claws," the actress brings sass and sensibility to her role as a salon owner who loses her considerable cool when she's ripped off by the mob. The former "Reno 911" star is mesmerizing, but the rest of the characters and all too familiar crime plot may make this a hard drama for viewers to dig their nails into.
