How to get frequency response at LTSPICE?

I am simulating the Common source amplifier circuit with current mirror. I wanted to see the frequency reponse of this circuit. And I got the constant value as you see the upper graph.

I have finally noitced if I change the value the parastic properties at Input Voltage Source, It shows the curve similar as I expected.

I want to ask you I'm on a right way to do AC simulation, And How should I set the parasitic properties. Thank you.

You took a huge capacity of the signal source - that's not right. Standard field-effect transistors have no parasitic capacitance, which gave you a horizontal gain line. You need to take the real models. And the fact that you used resistance and signal source capacitance to simulate the decay is cheating.

I selected monolithic MOSFET NMOS4, PMOS4, and I downloaded MOSFET models at this websites (http://cmosedu.com/cmos1/book.htm)and included that Models.

And we can see the frequency response like a upper photo.

But, when I have added .model on text and typed DC parameters, It didn't seem to be applied.

And I read that file and didn't find those parameters(kp,kn,Vto,lamba....)

How can I apply it?
