Interview with Malcolm D. Lee writer/director The Best Man Holiday
By Tinseltine on November 17, 2013
If you are black and living on earth you've seen the movie "The Best Man" at some point in your life. In fact, How many times have you watched it over the last 14 Years? (comments welcome).
Thus making the sequel a much anticipated movie event! And I can unequivocally say it was worth the wait - "The Best Man Holiday" not only serves these beloved characters in heart and truth and spirit, but is also sure to become an annual Christmas Classic. The opening montage flashes briefly back to Lance (Morris Chestnut) and Mia's (Monica Calhoun) wedding, while quickly filling the audience in on each character's progression since last we've seen them.
It's done in a way that allows us to feel caught up and ready to join their lives present day. My early Christmas present was not just seeing the preview screening of "The Best Man Holiday", but getting a chance to interview the writer/director Malcolm D. Lee at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia.
