    Product Description

    Share the laughter, love, and surprises as Harper (Taye Diggs), Lance (Morris Chestnut), Quentin (Terrence Howard), Jordan (Nia Long), Robyn (Sanaa Lathan), Mia (Monica Calhoun), Murch (Harold Perrineau), Candy (Regina Hall) and Shelby (Melissa De Sousa) all reunite for the first time in years.  When the college friends get together, they soon discover how easy it is to reignite long-forgotten rivalries and romances, all while new discoveries are made and secrets are revealed. The Best Man Holiday is the comedy that critics are calling “a feel-good celebration.” (James Verniere, Boston Herald)

    The Best Man Holiday, sequel to the 1999 film The Best Man, is a comic drama about nine good friends reunited after many years. Their relationships with one another, much like friends and families everywhere, are and have always been a bit on the dysfunctional side. While the friends are all in different stages of their personal and professional lives, each is experiencing some type of emotional rollercoaster. When the group reunites for the holidays, current feelings collide with their old emotional baggage to produce some serious fireworks--some hysterically funny and some deadly serious. Like their characters, Taye Diggs (Private Practice), Nia Long (Soul Food), Morris Chestnut (Kick-Ass 2), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), Sanaa Lathan (Contagion), Monica Calhoun (Love & Basketball), Melissa De Sousa (Miss Congeniality), and Regina Hall (Scary Movie franchise) all seem to revel in this onscreen reunion, and their performances are strong, funny, and emotionally authentic. It's refreshing to see a sophisticated black film that, like life, is a contradictory blend of the funny, sad, sexy, practical, irreverent, and spiritual. --Tami Horiuchi

    5.0 out of 5 stars I laughed ...I cried ...I laughed some more! November 19, 2013
    Bring your tissues ...The "Best Man Holiday" was way more than I expected it to be. This is the best movie of the year, in my opinion, but I don't think it's really appropriate for children so don't let the "Holiday" part fool you. This is a very underrated cast of actors and actresses because these people have been in the game for a while now, but they still are not as respected as they should be for the superb thespians that they are. All of the original stars from the first movie have returned, and this one was even better than the first. I saw "The Best Man" fifteen years ago, and I loved it then, so this sequel was long overdue. Stars include: Taye Diggs (Harper), Terrance Howard (Quentin), Morris Chestnut (Lance), Harold Perrineau, Jr (Julian), Nia Long (Jordan), Regina Hall (Candace), Monica Calhoun (Mia), Sanaa Lathan (Robin), Melissa DeSousa (Shelby), and new cast member Eddie Cibrian (Brian). This movie had a deeper story that was way more serious than the first film. It's about pride, loyalty, family, friendship, and understanding that everyone needs somebody at some point in their lives.

    This movie picks right up where the first one left off, and it brings you up to speed about where these characters have been all this time. I thought that was a clever move because it's clear that a lot has happened. Harper and Robin got married, and are expecting their first child, and clearly you can tell there is some tension in their relationship due to fertility problems as well as financial issues. Candance and Julian have gotten married, and they have two daughters, but Candace still can't escape the consequences of her old profession, and it is brought up a lot that she used to be a stripper, but Shelby is also still a major problem for both of them.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Emotional Workout November 25, 2013
    So this fellow had written a fictitious book inspired by events in his own life... When the old group gathered for a wedding, friends questioned how much of that book was really fiction and how much was actual fact. Oops! That was the premise of "The Best Man" in 1999. Now we have a sequel which takes place 15 years later. And yes, the plot has thickened ...but those old hurts still haven't gone away.

    Our little bunch has never been so witty or so appealing; the dialogue is racy, raunchy and very, very funny (the delighted audience laughed out loud over and over again). Religion unabashedly plays a big part in the plot and it is used with NO irony or derision, so we see successful middle- class families who attend church, pray together, and raise polite well- mannered children who sing religious songs at family gatherings. This is a feel-good movie with a huge principal cast, so I must limit this to just a few.

    They are:
    * Taye Diggs ("Baggage Claim") is Harper, that selfsame author, back on the prowl again in quest of a topic for a new book. Since his first book's middling success, he seems to be in a sophomore slump. (He was The Best Man 15 years ago.)
    * Sanaa Lathan ("The Cleveland Show") is his wife Robyn, finally due to have a baby (Harper has a low sperm count); problem is, it's breach so she's scheduled for a C-section right after the holidays.
    * Morris Chestnut ("Ladder 49") is Lance, our Alpha dog: a pro football player, a devoted husband, and a loving father of four (he was the groom 15 years ago). Mr. Chestnut says he doesn't take his shirt off in every film, but I am happy to report that in this one he DOES!
    * Monica Calhoun (Lots of TV) is Mia, Lance's adored wife and mother to his four children.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie this Holiday Season November 25, 2013
    I loved this movie. It was one of the best movies I've seen in a while. It was funny and heart-warming. I laughed and I cried, then I laughed and cried again. Quentin (Terrence Howard) was hilarious). I thought the first movie was my favorite, but this one just added to it. I have seen it twice. This will definitely be in my collection. Go see it and you haven't already.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Worth 5 Tissues and huge laughs mixed together! November 23, 2013
    By GD
    This movie crossed all racial barriers because everyone would be able to relate to this cast/characters and subject matters. The chemistry of this cast of characters is so superb they draw you into the emotions of their lives. We either know people or have family members that are experiencing the same issues as portrayed in this movie. It's nice to see a group of friends "really having each others back". The love and friendship they share with each other comes across in this movie. You will laugh and cry and really feel you have lost a true friend. I loved the original "The Best Man" and the love they shared in that movie is still there in this one. I wish more movies like this one were being made. I am looking forward to it coming out on DVD.
