*1/2 (out of four) One of the worst sins a documentary can commit is assessing a situation and saying, “If everyone could just stop caring about money, things would get so much better.” Discussing the issue of childhood obesity in a somewhat clueless vacuum, “Fed Up” says that 80 percent of the nation's schools have contracts with fast food companies - and just imagine how much healthier kids could be. In theory, that's a great call....

Compare the dating scene a decade ago to today's vibe and you couldn't have two more opposite entities. Texting, sexting, Facebook messaging, Tinder using, Snapchatting … the list goes on and on. Enter Aziz Ansari, a South Carolina-born comic who can not only riff on the subject, but draw from personal moments that prove "we're all dealing with the same nonsense," he said. Ansari, 31, best known for his role as Tom Haverford on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," is in the midst of his "Modern Romance" comedy tour, which lands in Chicago for four shows (7 p.m. and 10 p.m....

With the baseball season approaching, Chicago fans have questions about the Cubs and White Sox. Are they "burning questions"? No. Not with these teams. Either or both could lose 100 games this year and it would be according to plan. Either or both could be sort of all right, like, third place in their respective divisions, and that would be "ahead of schedule. " Neither team will be wearing champagne goggles until at least 2015. That's why the Cubs and Sox have itching questions.

Why do women wear cleavage-baring shirts if you don't want us to stare at your breasts?--Want To Know Why do men write questions like this if you don't want me to make fun of you? OK, yes, sometimes women wear revealing clothing to stand out, get attention or for validation reasons. (Similarly, we imagine you're not wearing that Ed Hardy shirt for humanitarian reasons.) But staring at anything for more than a few seconds is just weird. Try it. Stare at somebody's baby with a blank expression for a minute and see if it doesn't earn you a...

PBS released a teaser for Season 3 of "Sherlock" on Saturday that answers one burning questions about the master detective: Sherlock lives! The 30-second clip shows Sherlock's grave, flashing to an upset Dr. Watson(Martin Freeman) before going to Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) walking into a restaurant--without actually showing us his face. "Oh my," one woman in another room says before showing her phone to a friend. Then everyone in the room gets messages that say #SherlockLives, #SherlockHolmesAlive!

How will this year's Bulls team do with Derrick Rose back? Can the team make a leap into the "genuine contender" category, or will their style of play lead to more injuries at just the wrong time? Will the team make a trade or stand pat? These are the obvious burning questions and they are boring. I want answers to the itching questions nobody else is asking. 10. Why is coach Tom Thibodeau so cagey about his favorite composer? In an offseason interview with Grantland's Zach Lowe, classical music buff Thibodeau declined to answer a...

Where is my Ventra card? Chicago Card Plus users who received an email from the CTA and filled out the mailing information should be receiving their cards soon. The CTA said it will finish mailing these cards by the end of the week. About 50,000 registered Chicago Card riders will have their cards mailed out early next week. After mailing, it should take seven to 10 business days to arrive. I've been using disposable magnetic stripe cards. Where can I get a Ventra card?

**** (out of four) When Quentin Tarantino delivers a violent cartoon like (the highly entertaining) “Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” no one bats an eye. “Sure, chop off as many limbs as you want,” viewers think. “We're all just kidding around.” Yet when a filmmaker depicts the ugliness of brutal violence, people reject it. Starring Ryan Gosling in another collaboration with director Nicolas Winding Refn (“Drive,” 2011's best movie), “Only God Forgives” was widely loathed at the Cannes Film Festival.

From the outside, at least, it appears as though Mikal Cronin is living the dream. In addition to his ongoing gig as tour bassist in the Ty Segall Band, the Los Angeles-born musician recently released his sophomore album, "MCII," to universally rave reviews. Reached at home in San Francisco, however, the 27-year-old said much of his latest was inspired by lingering doubts about his current career path. "A lot of people [my age] wear fancy clothes ... and buy condos and have kids, and meanwhile I'm in Berlin drinking a beer," said Cronin, who plays two solo shows at Empty Bottle June 11 before returning July 19 for...

**1/2 (out of four) To an extent, any look behind the scenes of the adult film industry carries with it a certain level of judgment. You don't often see a documentary about finance that asks white-collar types, “So, how did you wind up in a place like this ordinary office building?” Obviously, acting in films whose names I can't print here involves a different routine than the usual 9-to-5. At the end of the day, though, it's both a cliche and a generally unrecognized fact that the men and, more...
