They really didn't need every single returning character to have a storyline or character-arc. Nia Long (with her boyfriend and commitment issues) and Melissa De Sousa's storylines (with her daughter and other drama) could have been cut completely, and it would have made the central story much tighter, with less dramatic tone shifts and distractions. The sub-storyline of Nia Long and Monica's friendship could have been explored more instead of the relationship with a boyfriend we barely see or care about. I guess the writers/director felt that if they got the entire cast together, they had to write them each significant storylines.

This felt like a directors edition instead of a theatrical version because of how overstuffed it was. It's hard to even say what the climax of the movie was because there was about 15 more minutes of storyline and emotional highs after what should have been the climax. Shave 20 minutes off the movie and get rid of the repetition and scenes that just didn't fit (last scene with Terrence and Melissa) and the movie would have been much better.

That said, I did enjoy it. Loved the music, especially the Christmas songs and the New Edition scene.  Terrence Howard stole the show. And there were some beautifully acted scenes from Regina, Monica, Morris, Taye Diggs, and Terrence. I actually was surprised at the football scene. It was well filmed for the most part.

Oh yeah, one other minor complaint. The casting for the children was awfulLOLLOL. I mean I understand kids can look different from their parents, but that little boy was supposed to be Morris and Monica's son?CryLOL

Spoiler below
 
It's a shame Nia and Taye Diggs never hooked up. They have the best sexual chemistry of anyone in the movies, including all of the married couples. I really don't see any chemistry between Taye Diggs and Sanna's character.







Yes, I agree completely. I felt like the scene between Monica De Sousa and Regina Hall was a bit much also. It could have been toned down a lot more and fit better.
As far as those light skinned children when they popped up on screen I said to my BFF "who picknee dat?" At the exact same time another guy said "I know those aren't theirs." and the whole row started laughing.

How many years do you think we will wait for the next one?

Yeah if another one is going to come at all, it's going to have to be 2014/2015.

I kept waiting for them to say the two light skinned babies were adopted which wouldn't have been a real stretch at all with them being wealthy and do-gooders.  

I felt like they ran out of time to explore a few things (you guys are right some scenes could have been cut to make room) but overall fans of the previous movie will automatically fill that stuff in in their headLOL

The line was so long and full that people kept coming up to us and asking if someone famous was inside. Because of the demand they added more viewings and it ended up being a disorganized mess. I ended up mustering the rude New Yorker in me and got my friends to bud the line of like 200 people. Everyone in the theater was pissed and complaining about how the movie better be good after all they put us through. Everyone I was seated next to was pleased.


Yes!!  This is amazing too because you don't  normally see this for an all black cast.  It was playing in 3 diff large screens rooms starting about 1 hour apart where I live which is AMAZING.   The screen me and my gf were in was packed.
