3:30 p.m. [Comedy Central] Offbeat, quirky - that would be just a start to describe this comedy. It has Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Danny Glover, Bill Murray, and Owen and Luke Wilson (right). I won't even try to summarize the plot, but part of the story concerns Luke Wilson's Richie, a former tennis star who had to quit the game after having a breakdown in the middle of a big match. So, according to the "watch it" rules I just made up, that qualifies the movie for this space.

Battle for Terra *** ( 3 STARS) War action, environmental dangers and a message of interspecies harmony combine with spirited results in the 3-D CG-animated feature Battle for Terra, an atmospheric sci-fi saga that may lack major studio marketing heft, but deserves a chance to win over toon-tested audiences. Director/co-writer Aristomenis Tsirbas, expanding his own short film, unveils a classically devised invasion yarn a la H.G. Wells, but with the twist that humans are the aggressors.

If the characters in "Home Fries" were anything more than one-note caricatures, the film might have been on to something.But they aren't, and the result is a fitfully amusing, relentlessly wry stab at black comedy that's more quirky than funny and manages to make even the usually effervescent Drew Barrymore boring.The film opens with a military helicopter chasing a guy through a field and literally scaring him to death -- all part of a plot by a pair of knucklehead brothers (Luke Wilson and Jake Busey)

Alex & Emma is a literary-minded romantic comedy that barely passes English, and flunks chemistry. It's a movie about a novelist writing a novel about another novelist, so it is chock-full of words. But those words are blathered by the sleep-inducing Luke Wilson and the already-snoring Kate Hudson. The words don't stand a chance. Wilson stars as Alex Sheldon, a novelist with a gambling problem. When his bookies strong-arm him about a debt, he realizes he has to finish his new book and collect a check by the end of the month.

If you know anything about Martin Lawrence and his stand-up comedy or movie careers, you know that "Blue Streak," the title of his new film, could easily be a reference to his penchant for profanity.Surprisingly, (and pleasantly, we might add), while the movie has the requisite vulgarities to earn its PG-13 rating, they aren't so intrusive as to send audiences running for earplugs.Unfortunately, the relative absence of curse words is not a ringing endorsement for a movie, and "Blue Streak" doesn't have enough going for it to warrant one.Lawrence, a nice enough fellow with a winning manner and a decent comic touch, has held his own in buddy films against the likes of Will Smith ("Bad Boys")

1. Loyola Last season: 20-4, No. 1 Coach John Tucker calls his defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion "talented but young." The rest of the league calls it the team to beat. 2. Boys' Latin Last season: 14-5, No. 5 The Lakers return perhaps the league's most potent attack in Bobby Griebe and Ian Loizeaux. With goalie Trey Sheane, the defense isn't shabby, either. 3. St. Paul's Last season: no record The Crusaders are back after a canceled season.

Mark Pellington, the talented director and son of Baltimore Colts linebacker Bill Pellington, once said that if he ever did a film that was "a Baltimore movie" like Barry Levinson's autobiographical films or John Waters' funky slices of Charm City life, it would have to be about preppies misbehaving in the suburbs. (He grew up in Timonium and attended St. Paul's School.) Pellington has made what he says is a personal suburban movie, Henry Poole Is Here, in which the title character returns to the street on which he lived as a boy. But that street is in La Mirada, Calif.

LONDON - Never underestimate the power of perkiness. Reese Witherspoon is about to take on Arnold Schwarzenegger in a duel of sequels. Witherspoon reprises the pink and peppy Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, which opens today. Schwarzenegger shakes the rust off for Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, opening today. "Arnold was so nice to me when I was a kid," Witherspoon says during an interview at the Dorchester Hotel. "He flew me out to Los Angeles to have all these meetings with great directors, so I can't begrudge him anything."

It's been a while since we've seen the Sexy Stenographer. Eclipsed 70 or so years ago by her successor, the Sexy Secretary, she has long been nothing but a discontinued archetype with a chignon. A lesser clerical worker -- oh, a mere typist, say -- might have simply accepted her lot. But drawing on her characteristic patience, and plenty of pluck, the Sexy Stenographer is finally back, in Rob Reiner's latest romantic comedy, Alex and Emma, which opened last week. The plot is simple, if seemingly implausible: scruffily handsome Alex (Luke Wilson)

Gilman plays in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference, considered a less competitive league, but the Greyhounds had knocked off two teams from the powerful Catholic League entering yesterday's boys basketball matchup with visiting Mount St. Joseph. "We didn't want to be the third Catholic League team they beat," said Gaels coach Pat Clatchey, whose ninth-ranked Gaels defeated 19th-ranked Greyhounds in a rout, 75-45. The guard play of J.J.

Ambrose Wooden didn't start well. The Gilman quarterback's first offensive series ended with an interception by Blair Academy's Ray Rochester, and the second with Rochester sacking him. But Wooden engineered a 28-point second quarter, rushing for scores of 74 and 23 yards, respectively, and throwing for two touchdowns, yesterday in a 42-14 rout of the Blairstown, N.J., team. Ranked No. 1 by The Sun and 20th nationally by USA Today, Gilman improved to 4-0. Blair Academy is 1-1. "My head wasn't in the game, but our defense kept me in it," said Wooden, who made scoring passes of 19 yards to Chris Merwin and Anthony Triplin in the big second quarter, and one of 27 yards to Josh Potler in the third.

`Charlotte Gray' PG-13 121 minutes ** Charlotte Gray (Warner, 2001) is a freeze-dried version of Sebastian Faulks' juicy novel about a passionate young Scotswoman who enlists with British intelligence and serves as a courier and go-between with the French Resistance during World War II. Director Gillian Armstrong works more like a concept artist than a dramatist. She doesn't just emphasize the theme that war is a nasty muddle. She subordinates everything else to that idea, including the heroine's two love interests: an RAF pilot (Rupert Penry-Jones)
