Friday at 8 you can choose between Cinemax's first-run of "The Craft," Showtime's debut of "A Family Thing," or whatever other boring programs are out there in rerun land. "The Craft" is a mildly amusing teenage witch flick, but it's definitely an MTV movie. "A Family Thing" is an undervalued kitchen-sink drama that didn't get quite the buzz of "Secrets & Lies," though it has a similar storyline. Robert Duvall and James Earl Jones discover that they were born of the same mother. The movie is a bit slow and sentimental, but Duvall and Jones give great performances, as only can be expected, and Irma P. Hall steals the show as their blind aunt.
