So anyway. Fametracker's Ten Least Essential Summer Films, 2003 is funny, because it's Fametracker. Here's my favorite one:

8.25. Bad Boys II

Release Date: July 18
The Plot: Martin Lawrence and Will Smith return in a sequel to their 1995 kind-of hit.
The Pitch: PAKOW! [Sound of explosions.] KAM KAM KAM! [Sound of gunshots.] YAYAYAYAYA! [Sound of Martin and Smith, trading quips.]
Why It's Inessential: 1995? Isn't there a statute of limitations on sequels? And if not, why not?
