I can't say how it compares to the first one but I really did enjoy this one. A better version of Why Did I Get Married.
28 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"It doesn't feel like Christmas to me." After 15 years of not being together Lance (Chestnut) and Mia (Calhoun) invite all their friends to their house for Christmas. Almost immediately old feelings come up and tensions start to mount. When secrets are revealed the life-long friendships are threatened. Before I start I will admit I have never seen the original movie but the first five minutes seemed like a recap and at no time did I feel lost. I didn't really have any of the character back stories but I caught up pretty fast. As far as this movie goes I wasn't expecting anything all that amazing and was a little hesitant. The main reason for that is because I have never been a Tyler Perry fan (not to sound racist). Even though this isn't one of his movies that is what I was expecting. I'm not sure if it was my low expectations or not but I really enjoyed this much much more then I thought I was going to. The best way to describe this is a version of Why Did I Get Married but funnier and with more like-able characters. This movie is funny but has a real plot and real emotion in it that sucks you in and makes you care about each character. I can't say how it compares to the first one but I can tell you I really did enjoy this one. Overall, a better version of Why Did I Get Married that surprised me as to how much I enjoyed it. I give this a high B+.
