Trivia

When the lead male characters sing Can You Stand The Rain to the female characters, their reactions are genuine as the director didn't tell the ladies which song would be sung to them. See more »

Goofs

Canadian flags can be seen on a street, as Lance is driving an SUV prominently featuring a New Jersey license plate. Though the movie location was set in the United States, the Canada filming location was revealed by the flags. See more »

Quotes

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.

Another Teddy Flix Movie Review: "Best Man Holiday (2013)"
21 February 2014 | by (24112) – See all my reviews

Emotion Packed, Heart-felt, BLACK DRAMA AT IT'S FINEST! Shot primarily in Toronto, Canada ... this film truly felt like a Christmas Movie! If you aren't choking and tearing up by the 1 hr. 45 min. mark of this film, you may need to check if you are still human! This film far surpasses that of it's original 1998 prequel in every category ... for within "The Best Man Holiday" exists tension, strife, rivalry, haughty looks, lust, faith, belief, hope, seeking, miracles, jealousy, envy, ... did I say strife ... LOL! But despite all of the things the spirit of God flows throughout the film from start to finish! I'd like to see this kind of directing in all Black films, for Malcom D Lee shows us that not only can he make us laugh hysterically, as in "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins", ... but he can also make us cry as I did and I'm sure, a vast majority of viewers have & will. The music score in this film rates A+ and the cast members selected for this sequel could not be a more perfect selection. Terrance Howard's comedy, wit, and sarcasm is an added plus towards helping us, the viewers, return from a state of tears, back to a state of laughter. I rate this film 5 of 5 stars.
