FIGHTING
(Max on Comcast) It has a story as old as dirt (he fights, he loves, he wins!). But it also has real grit and excellent acting. Channing Tatum plays a virtually homeless hawker of cheap merchandise. Terrence Howard plays a schemer who whisks him into the underworld of street pummeling. (PG-13; runs through Sept. 23) WESLEY MORRIS

OLD SCHOOL
(Max on Comcast) Three guys — Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, and Vince Vaughn — at the start of their 30s try to recapture their youth by founding a civilian fraternity. The film breaks out in a rash of stupid meathead comedy, but it’s hilarious and shameless enough to embrace that side of itself while coming up with some impressive human moments. Needless to say, none of them involve the untamable Ferrell. (R; runs through Sept. 30) WESLEY MORRIS

LOOK WHO’S TALKING
(Encore on Comcast) Career woman Kirstie Alley’s newborn baby speaks with the voice of Bruce Willis as an appealingly relaxed John Travolta volunteers for baby-sitting. Runs out of steam and ideas halfway through, lapsing into TV sitcom moves. (PG-13; runs through Oct. 14)
