As Carl Black gets the opportunity to move his family out of Chicago in hope of a better life, their arrival in Beverly Hills is timed with that city's annual purge, where all crime is legal for twelve hours.
Mia Sullivan (Monica Calhoun), wife of Lance Sullivan (Morris Chestnut), has written letters requesting that the old gang should join them for Christmas: Harper Stewart (Taye Diggs) and his almost-nine-month-pregnant wife Robyn (Sanaa Lathan), Julian "Murch" Murchison (Harold Perrineau) and wife Candace Sparks (Regina Hall), her best friend Jordan Armstrong (Nia Long) and boyfriend Brian McDonald (Eddie Cibrian), Quentin "Q" Spivey (Terrence Howard), and Shelby Taylor (Melissa De Sousa).

Leave the kids at home and enjoy a great night out with your honey or a few of your best gals!
This movie has a lot of unnecessary profanity,but it is nonetheless enjoyable, and is sure to go down as one the most well-written, heart- warming, emotionally stimulating urban holiday films.
I have to admit, I didn't know what to expect...I just thought that I was going to see a typical "black Christmas movie" that was horribly scripted, all the while using a great cast, and leaving me completely dissatisfied with my holiday experience...but that couldn't be more wrong. The follow-up of each cast member has a believable and consistent flow. All the actors seem to have a genuine connection with each other that emanates wonderful chemistry in the film. The men in the film look more incredible than they did in the original film, especially Mr. Morris 'sexual chocolate' Chestnut; and Mr. Taye Diggs' smile is more disarming and brighter than ever.
The whole movie experience was incredible and I look forward to watching this film over and over again right through the holiday season.
