Candace: I'm just saying, Jordan's good people, you should get to know her.
Robyn: What's to know? She's career-obsessed and lives on her BlackBerry.
Candace: True, but she's not some ideal from a piece of fiction. Now, her man, on the other hand, is iconic. Mmm. If I went that way, that's what I'd get. A tall, vanilla swagger latte. I like, I like, I like.

Best Ever!! My new favorite of all time!
9 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Wow, how is it that a sequel can be better than the first?! Fabulous director, cast and storyline is the answer. Amazing! This is the absolute best movie I have seen in an extremely long time. I laughed, cried, was totally blown away and really needed this. The cast feels like family and that made all the difference in the world. Granted it was devastating with Mia's passing, but so great to see they kept faith and God throughout the storyline. I so appreciate that there was no fear in showing how we can have faith in God despite the circumstances. His understanding will always be so much greater than our own but we must never stop trusting Him. Malcolm D. Lee, you are brilliant! Can't wait to see what you come up with next and DEFINITELY can't wait for another Best Man movie! What, Quentin's getting married?! Set it up for the next one! See you in the theater and at the checkout counter! I have to have them all in my movie collection!
