    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's not all bad. It's just part bad: It suffers from cliches and corniness, from the same kinds of scenes played over and over, and from more false endings than the last "Lord of the Rings" movie. show more

    Only a few charming tidbits are nestled snugly in this over-stuffed Christmas stocking. show more

    The movie ends with a setup for another sequel, which will undoubtedly be embraced by fans. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait another 14 years to see it. show more

    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    All of the cast members deliver smooth, capable performances, but this sequel clarifies why Howard has become the biggest star from the original ensemble. (He also gave one of the strongest performances in Lee Daniels’ The Butler this past summer.) show more

    The Best Man Holiday goes whole hog on the holiday cheese, and there’s something admirable about an adult feature that doesn’t balk at real feelings, especially around the holidays (sex montages notwithstanding). show more

    The Best Man Holiday has the potential to become a staple of Christmastime movie watching in the 'hood. show more

    Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times

    There’s something pretty special about this cast, all of whom turn in excellent performances while alternating between light comedy and some seriously heavy dramatic lifting. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    A far more Tyler Perry-ish mixture of comedy and tragedy than the easygoing "Best Man" was, back in the pre-Perry movie era. show more

    Kevin C. Johnson St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    A full plate of tear-jerking drama is served here. And it’s even tastier than the first time around. show more

    Peter Keough Boston Globe

    All in all, maybe the best 90 minutes of romantic comedy in theaters this fall. Unfortunately, the film is 122 minutes long. show more

    One of the best movies I've seen in awhile. It is an emotional rollercoaster, just like life. The cast, together, works!!! Awesome! I didn't know this was a sequel till I watched the 'making of' part of the dvd. You don't need to have watched the first movie (which I WILL now) to love this movie.

    Beautifully dressed, self-obsessed, shallow characters. No plot. Walked out half way through.

    This movie isnt just a comedy. Its a drama, lovestory and reality show as well, all wrapped up in one neat little package of emotions to be enjoyed by all. Easily one of the best \" first date\" movies of the year. Everybody has heard critics use the phrase \"emotional rollercoaster\" in the past, this one isnt quite the same because it\'s one of those really really big rollercoasters. Bring tissues for your tears of joy and sadness, prepare to laugh so hard your ribs hurt. Dont miss this one!
