The result is a joyous, raucous, righteous film but also a frustrating and disappointing one. Not quite the gift of the season some had hoped for.

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.
November 29, 2013
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.
November 28, 2013
It's a genially soapy time-killer, though Lee's as shameless in invoking cancer as he is about the catfights and smacktalk.

It can make you laugh and welcome the holiday spirit into your soul, unfortunately that's not all the overly-ambitious "The Best Man Holiday" tries to do.
November 15, 2013
Several schmaltzy and contrived sub-dramas clamour for attention. None warrant a Kleenex despite the best efforts of a mostly fine ensemble cast who fare much better with gags and camaraderie in the early goings.
November 15, 2013
A movie that does to your emotions exactly what one player does to another on the big Christmas game day: slams them to the ground and stomps them silly.
November 15, 2013
There's much heart and humor in "The Best Man Holiday" but also jolts from laughter to tears in the blink of a false eyelash.
November 15, 2013
It isn't without its charms, including an appealing cast and high production values. Unfortunately, all that's overshadowed by its inability to convincingly find emotional truths.

"The Best Man Holiday" gives holidays a bad name.

Maybe at the next 'Best Man' reunion Malcolm D. Lee will work these problems out

The mix of raunchy sex comedy and Christian faith doesn't quite come off.
November 14, 2013
Lee has so many plot platters spinning at any given moment that he can't quite finesse his way through the overly long running time.
November 14, 2013
The people in "The Best Man Holiday" - not just the actors, but the characters they play - deserved a better script than this.
November 14, 2013
Only a few charming tidbits are nestled snugly in this over-stuffed Christmas stocking.
November 14, 2013
The problem is that it doesn't aim particularly high and, when the tears have dried and the cheers have subsided, there's a sense that what the movie offers is disappointingly ephemeral.
November 14, 2013
As bloated and self-important as the original was modest and charming.
November 14, 2013
A visually spiffy but narratively flabby ensemble piece that veers uneasily from raucous farce to mawkish melodrama.
November 14, 2013
makes up for its misgivings most of the time.

The Best Man Holiday is akin to getting a massive, gorgeously wrapped Christmas present and opening it to find a pair of socks.
