New in Theaters: 'The Best Man Holiday'

The Best Man Holiday

We’ve another week with just a single release—a sequel to a romantic comedy that’s been fifteen years in the making. And, since it’s landed on the weekend between the new Thor film and the Hunger Games movie, it won’t have as much competition for earnings this weekend.

Coming out today is The Best Man Holiday, sequel to the 1999 film, The Best Man. The all-star cast of nine from the first film—Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Harold Perrineau, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, and Melissa de Sousa—returns in the sequel, directed by Malcolm Lee. The nine college friends reunite for the first time since the first film, and all the drama and hilarity they left behind wastes no time in starting right back up again.

The film actually scored fairly well with critics, earning a 64% on the Tomatometer. While some aren’t convinced that the sequel does the original justice, it has enough nostalgia and laughs to win over the audience, and make for a decent film. The Box Office Guru predicts $19 million for the film this weekend.
