The Best Man Holiday

Posted on 11.20.2013


>>  Old rivalries are brought back and past romances reignited when a group of college friends reunite for the holiday season in a long-overdue sequel to “The Best Man.” After 14 years, writer and director Malcolm Lee returns from the original, making the character feel true to the first film. Most of the cast also returns with a comfortable chemistry, which makes believing that they are old friends easy. The biggest downfall of this Christmas movie is the plot, which unwraps too many story lines. I found it confusing at times.  Aside from the confusion, each one of the many characters manages to complement one another and balance the comedy. Throughout the movie, there are tears, laughter and even dancing. The cast is a lot of fun, and each character has his or her moment to shine.  Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan all have fantastically witty performances that are bound to make the audience laugh. It’s a great movie to bring in the holidays.a
