Oceans Thirteen (2007)

Every time George Clooney or Bernie Mac admits to the lameness of Number Two, the third film in the franchise can't help but promise improvement.

Monkey Business (Part 2: June)

Apparently, as the sun's strongest rays finally settle over the movie going public, sequels are the remedy to cool down an overheated demographic. This month alone holds five examples of such redux refreshment. The rest of the choices are a variety pack of genres, ideas and possibilities.

Pride (2007)

Emphasis on race as a basis for prejudice is one thing; emphasis on race as a basis for dignity is something else.

Guess Who (2005)

In this comedic refraction of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?, by way of Meet the Parents and basic black-white buddydom, Ashton Kutcher's partner is Bernie Mac.

Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003)

Madison Lee draws so near to Nat that she seems ready to lick the younger Angel's pretty, smile-plastered face.

Head of State (2003)

As crossover-dreamy as it is, Head of State may just grant him enough industry clout to drag it - the industry -- along with him.

Ocean's Eleven (2001)

The background surf, unbuttoned shirt, and look away from the camera -- all this demonstrates just how movie-starness is done. The plot, like I say, is beside the point.
