A brainteaser about the uncanny connections between a burglar and the baseball player he fanatically cheers, "Potechi" is as mathematical and diverting as a Rubik's cube.

The jokes are less smutty and the couple more jaded in "Love in the Buff," a refreshingly authentic romantic comedy about the tradeoffs people must make in their relationships, careers and lifestyles.
