Baby Boy (2001)

While John Singleton's follow-up to Poetic Justice didn't debut at number one like its predecessor; it was one of the longest-running films of the summer, sticking around in theaters from June until September. With a close to $30 million total box office take, slow and steady won the race for this one.
