trying to get date range to report

I am trying to get reports to print out according to dates - the issue is that it is not an absolute between this date and that date - it is a "is this report active during the dates given"
So the reports could start before the "date entered" the reports could end before the "date entered" but can never start before the end date and never end before the start date.
I have been working on this for 8 hours and am chasing myself in circles

scenarios
Please see image -

query

SELECT *
WHERE ((cMinStart <= '''+ @start +''' AND cMinStart <= '''+ @end +''' AND cMaxEnd <= '''+@end+''' AND cMaxEnd >= '''+@start+''')
      OR (cMinStart <= '''+ @start +''' AND cMinStart <= '''+ @end +''' AND cMaxEnd >= '''+@start+''' OR cMaxEnd >= '''+@end+''' OR cMaxEnd <= '''+@end+''')
      OR (cMinStart <= '''+ @start +''' AND cMinStart <= '''+ @end +''' AND cMaxEnd >= '''+@start+''' AND cMaxEnd >= '''+@end+''')
      OR (cMinStart <= '''+ @start +''' AND cMinStart <= '''+ @end +''' AND cMaxEnd >= '''+@start+''' AND cMaxEnd <= '''+@end+''')
      OR (cMinStart  >= '''+ @start +''' AND cMaxEnd <= '''+@end+'''))

I did not see any image. Is the data provided, a sample from your table. Can you provide the table definition. Also post the expected result.

1. posting image!
2. yes the data is a sample but there are other things that are not needed that scripting it out would give.
clabael is a varchar
cminMax is a datetime (cast to a varchar in the stored procedure)
cminStart is a datetime (cast to a varchar in st proc)

If there is an easier way to do this I am all ears, my boss suggested using or and not
the results are seen in the pic - if there is a yes then that report should be pulled in when @start and @end are the same day - this is the time frame i am having trouble with.

Corrected Data and result picture - REALLY need help with this
In the picture the rows highlighted in blue should not be included in a query returning todays dates -
Also uploading the correct datafile for the table so that the dates match what i am testing with

criteria for search
@start = '2011-02-22 00:00:00'
@end = '2011-02-22 23:59:59'
