It’s been forever and a day since I had a real Girl’s Night Out. Between Esposo working crazy hours and not having a sitter on hand, getting out at night is practically impossible. But the stars aligned, a babysitter was hired and on Tuesday night some girlfriends and I were out to see THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY. I received a whole kit of goodies to ramp up the excitement…
You remember THE BEST MAN, don’t you? Best movie everrrrr. I have it on DVD and pretty much know it word-for-word.
How they managed to get ALL of the original cast members is beyond me. This NEVER happens. But it did for THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY and the women are still gorgeous and the men are still fine, honey. How have Sanaa Lathan and Nia Long NOT aged? How is Morris Chestnut’s chest still so perfectly chiseled? Whooooa!
It’s a roller coaster of emotions.
Some movies are mostly funny. Others are mostly sad. Some are thought-provoking. THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY is a roller coaster of so many emotions. The up and down almost made me want to go home and have a glass of wine to collect my thoughts. Good acting really makes you feel the emotions of the characters and my girls and I were all over the place emotionally.
It makes for great discussion.
My girls and I couldn’t stop talking about the movie after we left. You know a movie is good when you get invested with the characters so much that you keep talking about them as if they really exist!
It isn’t overly Christmas-y.
Some of y’all are against the Christmas EXPLOSION that happens in November and December. Personally, I could be in the Christmas spirit year round but I’m lame like that. For those that suck their teeth over Christmas songs, movies and decorations, you folx will be happy to know that the movie isn’t heavily Christmas-fied.
It’s always good to support the brown people on the big screen.
Let’s face it, seeing people of color on the big screen is such a rarity. I’m all for diversity and it annoys me that Hollywood doesn’t have more people that look like me on the silver screen.
Go see THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY! You will love it. Looooove it!
