Written and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, this sequel was scheduled to be released on November 15th, 2013, where it was the very first time the film had ever been shown in the United Kingdom. The outcome of The Best Man had received positive reviews from critics, which the film was able to explore the lives of African Americans going up against marriage, affairs, deceit, loyalty and friendship.
But in the second sequel, Malcolm was able to exploit the lives of these individuals by basically exploring them in their middle age, where we are exposed to marriage, childbirth, unemployment, success, death and religion. The film itself almost allows us to focus on the positive aspect rather than the negative. It deals with the issues that relates to our everyday lives, which it teaches us how to resolve and overcome these issues. However, though the group reunites at the mansion of Chestnut’s football player, Lance, for the Christmas Holiday. We are yet able to understand the pain and conflict majority of these characters keep hidden within.

Lee, Sean Daniel and Spike Lee, the film has casted it’s very own Taye Diggs as Harper Stewart, Sanaa Lathan as Robin Stewart, Nia Long as Jordan Armstrong, Morris Chestnut as Lance Sullivan, Harold Perrineau as Julian Murch, Terrence Howard as Quentin Spivey, Monica Calhoun as Mia Sullivan, Melissa De Sousa as Shelby, Regina Hall as Candace “Candy” Murch, Eddie Cibrian as Brian Mc Donald, Isis Moore as Kennedy and Riele Downs as Faith.
