I think that's just his personal opinion of what genre those movies fall under.

And I'm sure the owners of the Nets were more than happy to go along with the movie for much needed PR.

I think it's because Queen Latifah is from Jersey, and she may be a real life fan of the team.

But Michael Moore already did that! Except his version was called "Capitalism: A Love Story!"

Well, I've heard Ridley Scott is making the "Monopoly" movie so...

Yeah, just wait a year or two, and we'll be seeing "product-promoting movies" become the new genre, maybe even replacing reboots and remakes!

My post above was a bit tongue-in-cheek, but just out of curiousity, I went to the New Jersey Nets website. Sure enough, this movie is being pimped and linked on their site everywhere you look. There are even merchandising tie-ins. This is possibly the most shameless case of making a full length film for the specific purpose of promoting a very specific "product" in film-making history.

I think it's hard to argue that rom-coms are getting "suckier" each year. The thing about rom=coms is that it follows a formula that was started since mankind began. Rom-coms must end with a wedding. That's just the rule. So I have to ask how can you make a genre so traditional and make it "different"? It's kinda hard, if you ask me. That's why I'm not that hard on rom-coms. They follow a tradition that has been started when comedies and tragedies appeared in Greek plays. Changing the tradition is like changing the entire genre itself!

Every decade, Hollywood gets worse, and nothing is ever done to restore them to any of their former glory. And yes, I'd be happy to hear any reason besides "for the money" that Queen Latifah and other ill-reputed actors and actresses keep starring in bad movies.

Oh, I think you're onto something there, saturnwatcher! Hollywood has become so shameless that it's willing to make 90 minute long ads for sports teams!

The New Jersey Nets are going to be playing in a new arena beginning next season, and if I am not mistaken, they also have a new owner. The suspicion here is that this film is essentially a season ticket drive for the team and they probably pumped some money into it. Not only is Hollywood evidently completely out of original ideas; now they are apparently in the business of making promotional videos for the highest bidder.

Rom-Coms have already had a miserable year, and now we have two more bad ones in one week! 
 
Argument for a Worst Excuse for a Romantic Comedy?  No, we don't need to argue anymore!  
 
By the way, how many more rom-coms (which will almost certainly suck, of course) can we look forward to in 2010?  We haven't even gotten halfway through the year, and we have enough "excuses" to fill the category already!!

Are you seriously looking for any kind of answer besides "for the money"?
