In Review: Movie: The Best Man Holiday


Tugged at heart strings, endless laughter and an appreciation for life, will all but sum up the wealth of emotions that you will warmly surrender when viewing the movie: “The Best Man Holiday”. I will admit that I was not a huge fan of the prequel (The Best Man), but I must say that this latest installment in the widely adored series, has made its way onto my list of one of the most enjoyable movies I have ever had the pleasure of watching. I almost feel guilty revealing any detail of the plot, so I will preference my review by saying that the movie picks up right where the prequel left off. The cast of characters remain the same, as we find each of them in different places in both their professional and personal lives. They have all drifted vastly apart, however, it is not until they receive an invite to spend the holidays with the Sullivan family (Mia and Lance played by Monica Calhoun & Morris Chestnut), that the old gang is finally reunited under one roof for the Christmas Holiday. Once again the movie is centered around the character Harper (played by Taye Diggs) and his never ending quest to find a way to balance family, friendship and success, as his wife Robin (played by Sanaa Latham) is now pregnant with their first child. As we follow him throughout the film, we learn about the extreme transitions of life, as well as, the importance of friendship and forgiveness. This movie will not disappoint its viewer, as I wish that Hollywood would take on more projects of quality just like this. Terrence Howard poured in one of his better performances; offering up humor, wisdom and heartfelt emotion as the cunning, yet controversial, character Quentin Spivey. The Best Man Holiday is by far one of the best holiday movies to date, please go and do yourself a favor support this film of talented actors and actresses abound. I promise that you will not be the least bit disappointed. If so, the microwave popcorn is on me.
