Taye Diggs, Terence Howard, Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Monica Calhoun and Harold Perrineau are all back and joined by Eddie Cibrian and John Michael Higgins in The Best Man Holiday (2013), the sequel to the 1999 hit, The Best Man.

I don’t remember actually wishing for a sequel but I sure am glad that it came. I’m even more glad because the writer/ director of both movies, Malcolm D. Lee took his sweet time with the second film – something that I find, often leads to a better quality finished product.

Set during the holiday / Christmas period, The Best Man Holiday (2013) brings seasonal cheer and laughter – thanks to the fun banter between the characters. As was the case with the first movie, everything is not all big smiles and good times.

The movie has a good mix of memorable comedy and well executed dramatic moments. One of my favourites of the former category has to be John Michael Higgins’s character’s response to Harper (Taye Diggs) when Harper says ‘I don’t even know if biographies is my thing.’

Watch it if you want to experience some laughter, drama and friendship especially in testing times. If you love the characters as much I do, lets all cross our fingers and hope for something great because a sequel, The best Man Wedding has been announced.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
