The Best Man Holiday (2013)


Taye Diggs
Terrance Howard
Morris Chestnut

Directed by Malcolm D. Lee

The Best Man Holiday was very funny, I really laughed hard while watching this movie, there were just some scenes in the movie and some lines that will catch you off guard. And the way the movie ended was more like Malcolm D. Lee was making room so in case another movie about these four best friends and the women in their lives should be written, there is a place they could pick it up from.

The movie is set to have happened during Christmas time. And it is a comedy drama, directed and written by Malcolm D. Lee, who also directed and wrote The Best Man (1999) serving this up as a sequel to the movie.
Here in this holiday get together we get to see how their lives have turned out after the weird events of the wedding between Lance and Mia in the first movie.

The producers went all out to get Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall all to come back, reprising their roles from the 1999 film.

The whole crew came together acknowledging Mia’s invitation for a get together, but not all the wound have healed over their time apart, as Lance still held a grudge against Harper for sleeping with his wife (although this happened long before they got married in the first film). And Julian married the stripper Candace which he fell in love with in the first movie. While Harper and Robin are expecting their first child, and Quentin is still single, but a lot weirder than he was in the first movie.

The movie’s tragic tone in the end, had some light shed on it with a birth, something I kind of liked, although it is not new, I know I have seen it in a movie somewhere.

The movie went on to be a commercial hit and because of that I heard that Universal Pictures and Malcolm D. Lee are in talks for third installment. I think they should quit now that they are ahead.

Should you get this movie? Hell yeah, it is funny and somewhat emotional, the plot is not airtight though and the screenplay was at times just dull or irritating.
Imagine, someone thought it was good to add some singing into the movie. I felt all the singing parts were just crap and unnecessary.

Go see this movie.
