Our Song Small, richly compelling drama about three teenage girls in Brooklyn and how their lives change, quietly but dramatically, over a period of just a few weeks. (R)

Pootie Tang This fitfully amusing comedy about a gibberish-speaking superfly crime fighter named Pootie Tang (Lance Crouther) never transcends its roots as a sketch on HBO’s The Chris Rock Show. (PG-13)
