Still, The Best Man Holiday contains some strong moments and good acting; the cast is as likable as ever, even if the film doesn't take many bold risks.

This is a film about friendships, faith and family and, laden with bittersweet moments, triggers those tear ducts.

It's an odd mix of bawdy comedy and blatant heart-tugging -- you'll be cringeing one moment and sniffing the next.

If the original The Best Man was a smooth, R&B jam then The Best Man Holiday is a slick hip-hop beat. It's bigger and flashier. I missed the scrappiness of the original...

The first half is such an agreeably raucous reunion that we hate to see a pesky thing like terminal illness ruin all the fun.

You leave emotionally exhausted, but there's a lot of care in this movie.
December 1, 2013
While the script may be uneven and the film itself overlong, the cast make for winning company, turning a deft hand to material that zigzags between bawdy and mawkish, somehow keeping it on just the right side of sympathetic.

The Best Man Holiday pigs out on every plot at a slow, bloated Christmas pace. Watch out, movie punters. We're segueing into Part Three.

The sweet 'n' sour mood turns purely gloopy in the last act, which involves a certain football game and the intervention of an earth-bound angel.

The dialogue is sometimes wickedly sharp, the performances good, and all we have to do is swallow great dollops of schmaltz ...

A little cheesy but it's sincere, well performed and good fun.

This rom-com-dram take on The Big Chill isn't quite up there with Lee's sparkling debut but it never succumbs to the grim sudsiness waded through in Tyler Perry territory.

Like many awkward, clanger-filled real-life Christmas gatherings, it goes through some alarmingly rocky patches, but comes together in the end.

It's a genially soapy time-killer, though Lee's as shameless in invoking cancer as he is about the catfights and smacktalk.

There's nothing great about it, but there's a whole lot of good enough.

I never thought I'd see a faith-based, R-rated movie, but here it is in 'The Best Man Holiday,' a sequel to a movie from 14 years ago. It does have an R rating, but its characters all have a deep, abiding faith.

A surprisingly emotional film, it is "Steel Magnolias" from the male point of view.

Whatever daily regimen of exfoliating and/or bathing in puppy blood is responsible for this Dorian Gray sh*t, I want in.

The cast is the film's biggest asset as just about everyone brings their A-game.
