THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY Trailer Aims To Rekindle The Charm Of The First Film

I'm just going to put this all out there: I think the idea of sequel-izing (yes, that's a homemade word) romcoms is a pretty lazy idea, considering romcoms today at their most general are already pretty dull. So you can just imagine how derivative their sequels are.

Which brings us to the new trailer for THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY, the follow-up to the 1999 classic romcom that spawned countless others, The Best Man. For the few of you who aren't familiar with the original film, it followed a group of friends through love's trials and tribulations as they prepared for the nuptials of their good friend, Lance (Morris Chestnut).

Though the movie was typical of its genre, the alluring cast (which also includes Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau and Sanaa Lathan) and overall charm of the film has made it endlessly rewatchable for many (but once was okay for me).

Anyway, the new movie reportedly revisits the relationships from the first movie amid the holidays. More on ti below (from

"When the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited."

I think most of the fans are excited to see their favorite characters come together again after fading off into the sunset fourteen years ago. I'm most interested to see how the story will mature the characters, and not simply give us a redux of similar situations from the first film. You'll see from the trailer that they all still look like not a day has passed since we last saw them. Check it out:

THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY hits theaters November 15th, which should bring in the holiday/family audience. What do you think? Will you watch it?
