Storyline Heading
Throughout the years, there have been marriages, children and divorces among a close-knit group of college friends -- not to mention all the love and heartbreak that accompany a life well lived -- but the group has not been able to manage a proper get-together since Lance and Mia's wedding 15 years ago. But that's all about to be remedied. When the friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and passionate romances to be reignited.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Like the first film from 1999, this is an ensemble comedy-drama with an African-American cast, but also like the first film, it has appeal beyond any ethnic lines. Fans of the stars and the original film should enjoy though, in keeping with the 14 years that have passed between films, it's also a more mature and sentimental film. Constant language and raunchy humor make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Movies about the inevitability of mortality should have a more lasting impact but the crowd-pleasing mentality underpinning The Best Man Holiday guarantees that it's easily forgotten once the end credits roll.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good The rich, deep quality of his voice, and his sudden statement of fact, turned the lump in my throat to a huge smile on my face. That's how this movie works.

USA Today Full Review
Average Less would have been more in this jam-packed, not-so-jolly holiday. Humor is weighed down by contrivances and sentimentality, though the cast is generally appealing.

Washington Post Full Review
Above Average 'The Best Man Holiday' possesses all the strengths and weaknesses of banal, high-gloss mainstream entertainment: It's boringly, bracingly, gratifyingly conventional. No shame in that game.
