In past years, Hollywood purposely counter programmed these renowned Cineplex dog days, trying to offset the perception that cinematic scraps were all the studios had to offer. From the look of this lame list, it's apparently back to the filmic fridge for some patently warmed over offerings.

Tracy Mitchell (Tracy Morgan) is more bland than 'streetwise,' a means to market 'blackness' to NBC's viewers.

If you've seen a movie based on a Terry McMillan novel, or gee, even a recent romantic comedy, you know exactly where 'Two Can Play That Game' is going.
Brooklyn-born Diamond (third Fugee Pras) is midway through cutting a record, which, the movie wants you to think, is off the proverbial hook.
In On the Line, Kev (Lance Bass) is bland as can be, an unfortunate condition for a romantic lead.
What the film does especially well is explore the perpetual strains and stresses of family relationships, especially with the added duress of scraping by, day to day, in an economy that shows no mercy. That 'Kingdom Come' does all this through comedy makes the exploration both more and less painful.
