The attractive & talented cast of The Best Man returns for the sequel to the star-studded all black line-up of the first hit movie.

The movie has excelled way beyond expectation for it’s box office numbers. Best Man Holiday is a well crafted movie from scene to scene taking you on an emotional ride throughout the movie and never losing touch with the realities of real black people who exist in the black community.  Who seem to never be the first thought of African American culture when it comes to dealing with blacks in the media. Including film.

Aside from the movie being well written, you can’t ignore the  spread of beautiful black actors. Morris Chestnut, as the lead for the men starring as Lance Sullivan, the handsome and successful football athlete who has not only aged well but appears to have it all. Alongside Taye Diggs, as Morris Chestnut’s best man from the original movie. Also Terrance Howard, who holds it down for the light-skinned brothers as the comedian of the group.

For the ladies there is Sanaa Lathan, Nia long, Monica Calhoun and Regina Hall in representation of beautiful, family-oriented black women,  who aren’t altogether as closely bonded as the men, but nevertheless successfully portray the image of black girlfriends. 

Best Man Holiday is the perfect start to your holiday season. It makes you feel everything a movie about life should. God, health, success, failure, family, friendship, togetherness, healing, forgiveness and happiness.  Just in time for the holidays this is the movie that you would tell friends about after you seen it and join each friend as they go to watch it for the first time.  For every weekend that is coming up throughout the holidays, Thanksgiving through New Year’s, be sure to encourage someone to go and see “Best Man Holiday.” There’s laughter and tears, more laughter and tears, but it’s a movie very well worth the ride. *
