I liked the movie overall especially for a sequel. There were highs and lows in the movie which made it more entertaining. I like that they explored each characters issues.
 
I agree with everyone else about the two youngest children. I was waiting for Monica's to confess that lance had another affair and they were raising the children or that they were adopted.

I loved it but I'm easy to please!  I took my daughter when she was a baby and I took her with me this time (she's 15) so that was kind of sweet.  I agree that it was predictable and that's probably why I didn't cry, but it was still worth it.  

Nia Long looks too good!  She and Morris Chestnut have NOT aged a day.

Did anyone see that this movie has earned more than expected?
10 million only on Friday...the movie cost 17 million to make and they will probably earn double of what it was spent this weekend alone. Variety says it is "overperforming" (because it was not expected to make that muhc):

‘Best Man Holiday’ Over-Performing with Possible $35 Million Weekend

Best Man Holiday

Sequel shows hunger for movies targeted to African-American aud

Stuart Oldham

Christmas is coming early for Universal’s “The Best Man Holiday.”

Malcolm D. Lee’s comedy sequel, made for only $17 million, should take in over $30 million at the box office this weekend, wildly exceeding expectations for the Universal film, which were originally pegged in the mid-to-high teens.

Some observers think “Best Man” could top $35 million by Sunday, putting the pic just behind Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” ($37 million) and making it the largest opening for an African-American film since last year’s “Think Like a Man” ($33 million).

Arriving 15 years after the original comedy, “Best Man Holiday” reunites Lee with all of the original cast members, including Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Monica Calhoun and Melissa De Sousa.

The box office performance also sends a message to Hollywood: Make more black movies.

Despite Hollywood’s reluctance to produce African-American films (one reason is their lack of overseas acceptance), black audiences are enthusiastic about franchises like Tyler Perry’s “Madea” franchise and films like the Weinstein Company’s recent success, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.”

And yet only a few urban movies are actually given the opportunity to test the market.

“If studios are willing to spend the money to build awareness for black movie stars and directors, black American film culture will travel,” producer Stephanie Allain (“Hustle & Flow”) recently told the New York Times.

Fox Searchlight is hoping audiences remain strong this Thanksgiving when it releases the musical drama “Black Nativity,” starring Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Jennifer Hudson.

Based on the Langston Hughes play, “Black Nativity” opens nationwide Nov. 27.

I cried almost the entire movie, I went in with low expectations but I actually really enjoyed the movie and got much more emotional then I expected. Good job to the entire cast

He was in 3 movie trailers when I went:

Ride Along
The movie with Michael Ealy
The one with Slyvester Stallone

And I know he's working on one with Will Farrell to be released next year too AND Think Like A Man Too

Kevin Hart gonna be eating good next year.

***SPOILER***

I didn't have high hopes for this movie. From the previews, it seemed as though it would be a tacky comedy.

 
Man, was I wrong!! This movie was EXCELLENT!!! It kept me engaged from begining to end. I loved how it started with scenes from the last movie.
 
My favorite part was definately the guys putting on the talent show Heart!!! I just blushed my butt off as if they were singing to me...hahaha!!
 
Mia's story was heartbreaking...I wasn't prepared for that Cry.
 
I wasn't really feeling the relationship between Jordan and her dude. It didn't seem authentic.
 
And am I the only one that think Shelby's daughter is Q's daughter?? I just had a feeling this whole movie that it would come out that he fathered that little girl!!! I think it'll tie into the next one surrounding him getting married.
 
All in all, I thought it was  GREAT movie!!! I give it 9 out of 10. I take a point away from the excessive use of profanity. Damn they cursed a lot in this movie! Stern Smile
 
It was funny, emotional, sad...and it was very well written! Great flick!!!
