This movie has the potential to be a sequel and a first-ever trilogy (of the same title) for Tyler Perry yet he drops the ball in his writing and directing. The storyline is mediocre and needed more development especially for seasoned actress, Nia Long who co-stars in the film (along with her son Massai Z. Dorsey who portrays her son in the movie). Cocoa Brown and Terry Crew’s characters give us the comedy when it’s needed. There’s a poignant scene in the film that I loved…having a support team/girlfriends/social club to have your back in the good and the bad. No matter how strong a woman is, there are times when she needs to “hear” this from her friends. I would like to see a sequel to this title with a better storyline. I also thought there were too many long pauses in the movie that reminded me of Tyler’s ‘Haves/Have Not’ soap-opera drama series (which I do like).

Well, it’s no secret that I totally love this sequel (the original film ‘The Best Man’ was released in 1999)! The entire original cast is back on the big screen to make us laugh and we get see how their characters matured. Although it’s been 15 years since the original was filmed and 14 years since it was released, the film depicts only a 10 year gap. This film tugs at all emotions especially laughter and we get to see how much they all do care for one another. Terrance Howard’s character, Quentin is a fave of mine. He totally rocks portraying this character! He’s funny as ever! Morris Chestnut (Lance) definitely steals scenes with that gorgeous physique, ting to my smile 🙂 It’s not necessary to see the original film yet seeing it will help you to understand the characters better (there are flashback scenes from the original). I have seen this film twice already, lol, at an advance screening and 11/14 at a late night showing. Overall, a great film to check out this weekend and coming Holiday Season. An instant classic and must have DVD. P.S. The dance routine scene is great!
