Before setting sail
Trailers for the Sandra Bullock-led Oceans 8 have me itching to re-watch 1996s Set It Off (6 p.m., BET), in which another all-star team of actresses Queen Latifah, Kimberly Elise, Vivica A. Fox and Jada Pinkett Smith lead a riveting life of crime. For a female gang interested only in stealing laughs, you cant go wrong with 2011s Bridesmaids (7:30 p.m., Freeform), the irresistible comedy that made Melissa McCarthy a star.
1 1/2 stars
PG-13, 112 minutes (for suggestive material, drug content and language)
Directed by David E. Talbert. Produced by William Packer. Written by David E. Talbert.

Christmas Day in “Almost Christmas” is something of a miracle.
As in, it’s a miracle apparently nobody involved in high-end decision making on this film noticed any of the glaring continuity errors or lapses in logic transpiring before us.
In the spirit of the holiday, a family patriarch asks his family to get along for five days. With Kimberly Elise, Omar Epps, Danny Glover, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, Nicole Ari Parker, J.B.
