If you think you absolutely know who you are and from whence you came, you need to see "Family Name," a film about family, ethnicity and identity airing at 10 tonight on public television.Filmmaker Macky Alston set out on a journey in the early 1990s to explore the Alston family name. Three and half years later and immeasurably wiser, he came to understand how complicated, fluid and fragile identity really is for most Americans. We know who are parents told us we are, but is that the truth?

Wiley Gunter's is an easy place to like. It has everything a great neighborhood bar needs: super-friendly bartenders, big TVs, walls covered with sports memorabilia and a menu stocked with well-executed takes on familiar bar food. With all that, it's no surprise that around 7 on a recent Thursday night, the place was packed. Groups of friends wearing matching Kickball League of Baltimore T-shirts filled both of Wiley Gunter's two floors, grabbing beers before heading to games near the bar's Federal Hill-meets-Locust Point location.

Crossover's got game, not to mention the best of intentions. But it's too clunky by half, with characters who bounce way too quickly from one emotion to the next, dialogue that must have looked better on the page than it sounds coming out of the actors' mouths, and a desperate need to show off its street cred that sometimes threatens to make the film a parody of itself. Anthony Mackie (She Hate Me) and Wesley Jonathan (TV's What I Like About You) are Tech and Cruise, best buds who have become stars on the Detroit basketball scene.
