Unlike most people, I watched zero trailers for The Best Man Holiday. Honestly, I did not expect much, but planned to support it. I own the original on dvd and I have watched it so much that I think the characters are real people… I just could not picture a sequel.
On Saturday, I walked in the theatre without expectations and took my seat toward the front of the theatre (someone purchased tickets on the late freight). If you have ever been to the theatre with me, you know I like sitting towards the back and smack dab in the center of the row.
Lights out and phones off! The movie began by taking us back to where we last saw our friends, so nostalgic. I felt all the emotions rushing back. That Lance is one fine specimen and Shelby still irks me, but I digress.
The Best Man Holiday is so worth every penny and minute of attention. I think that I may even like the second more than the original, go figure!
Malcolm D. Lee and the team did an amazing job. Cue the standing ovation. I laughed out loud (not silently, like most LOLs), I wanted to cry, sung (in my head), and cheered. I and what seemed like the entire theater enjoyed catching up with our old friends.
Have you seen it? If so, what are your thoughts?
