The shtick built around Pootie Lance Crouther is a parody of the inexorable swiftness of hip-hop cool and slang that is cultural currency one week and utterly devalued the next. The sketches fixated on Pootie's patter, a dialect that is a language all its own -- words like tippi-tai for kids -- and its siren's-call effect on, well, sirens. One of the best things Gwyneth Paltrow has done in years was her mesmerized, good-sport cameo in a Pootie sketch, when she was melted over him like butter on an English muffin. What makes ''Pootie Tang'' the motion picture enjoyable is its no-brow ambitions; it's a joke action film. It slides through enough African-American pop culture signifiers to raise laughs out of those who will appreciate the references; it revels in more cheese per square inch than a soul food diner. Pootie is drawn to leather pants and shirts and fur apparel that will billow in the breeze, so that when he strides through the world on a degree angle -- the better to display his splendidness -- he always looks as if he's starring in a music video directed by Hype Williams.

If she can't or won't consider that the church is a lie, you need to move on because this relationship can't go anywhere.
