THE NEXT KARATE KID (PG) This time the kid’s a chick — a pouty teenager named Julie (Hilary Swank) who’s real, like, bummed because her parents died in a car crash. To the rescue comes Mr. Miyagi (Noriyuki ”Pat” Morita), the Jessica Fletcher of martial arts, who teaches Julie self-esteem through high kicks and such nuggets of wisdom as, ”Answer not important if ask right question.” Huh? Hai! Clearly, three sequels haven’t improved Miyagi’s English, but there is something bitchin’ about seeing a babe give a bully a good thwack. C- ( 242, Sept. 30)
