Freeze Frames

FOLLOW THAT BIRD -- ``Sesame Street Presents'' this leisurely road movie for kids, in which Big Bird finds adventure while hiking from the fields of the Midwest to his inner-city home. Parents will yawn, but younger children may enjoy the fun. Directed by Ken Kwapis. (Rated G) 14'S GOOD, 18'S BETTER -- Gritty documentary about three young Australian women, who discuss and compare their lives at two stages of their teen-age years. Directed by the versatile Gillian Armstrong. (Not rated)

GREETINGS FROM WOLLONGONG -- Terse, unconventional drama about unemployed Australian youths. Inventively directed by Mary Callaghan, who skirts several genres without falling into any of them. (Not rated)

THE HEAVENLY KID -- Limp comedy-drama about a ghost from the 1950s who returns to Earth as a wimp's guardian angel. Directed by Cary Medoway. (Rated PG-13)

WEIRD SCIENCE -- That terrific title, copped from a '50s comic book, disguises an aggressively vulgar comedy about teen-age nerds who fabricate a sophisticated woman with a home computer. The action teeters tantalizingly on the brink of anarchy at times, but lacks the cleverness or courage to plunge on in. Written and directed by teen-movie specialist John Hughes, who indulges his usual theory that parents are to blame for the discontents of their children. (Rated PG-13) RATINGS: Films with ratings other than G may contain varying degrees of vulgar language, nudity, sex, and violence
