Product Description

Product Description

Novelist Harper (Taye Diggs) has agreed to be the best man at the wedding of his college friends Mia (Monica Calhoun) and Lance (Morris Chestnut) and is looking forward to being reunited with his other old friends at the weekend celebration. However, as the big day approaches, word gets out that Harper's latest book - a semi-autobiographical account of his student years - contains a thinly veiled description of a sexual encounter between himself and Mia, and when Lance hears about this he promptly cancels the wedding. Is this the end for the happy couple, or can Harper put things right before it's too late?

From Amazon.co.uk

A glossy romantic comedy, The Best Man centres on four college friends and the women in their lives, all brought back together for a wedding. Taye Diggs (How Stella Got Her Groove Back) plays the title character, a young writer whose first novel is a barely fictionalised account of his college days, featuring barely fictionalised versions of all his friends. This novel hasn't yet been released, but ambitious TV producer Nia Long (Soul Food) has snagged an advance copy in the hopes of getting an early interview with Diggs. Unfortunately, when this advance copy begins circulating among the college gang, they discover it reveals some secrets that may have a disastrous effect on the wedding. The Best Man features a handsome, charming cast and a propulsive story, but the female characters are poorly developed and the male banter is, to say the least, chauvinistic. This banter is mostly to comic effect, but by the end it still leaves a sour taste that the movie's happy ending doesn't counter. It does at least feature a particularly strong performance by Terrence Howard as an aimless but relentlessly honest member of the college quartet. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

The beauty of this movie is that it truly likes and cares about the people inhabiting it. There are no cheap jokes or sight gags. The humor develops from real situations and real characters starting with Harper Stewart (Taye Diggs). Life is good for Harper. His first novel is about to be published. He is in a comfortable two-year relationship and it is the weekend of the wedding of Lance (Morris Chesnut) and Mia (Monica Calhoun), two of his closest college friends. The bad news is his novel is a thinly veiled account of his college years and an advance copy of the book has found it's way into the hands of another college friend, Jordan (Nia Long). Jordan has in turn read the book and passed it along to Harper's inncer circle of college freinds. The really bad news is now the advance copy is in the hands of the groom, Lance. And Lance will not be happy by what he reads.

The film is well performed across the board although special mention needs to be made of Taye Diggs in the lead. Diggs perfectly captures the arrogance and the fear of commitment that makes the character of Harper work. Morris Chesnut is also quite good as the groom Lance. Lance is a star running back who is torn by his love for Mia and all the oppurtunies his "star" status provides. Mia really has become the rock in this world, his key to becoming a better man and Christian. When Lance finally gets to the chapter that Harper has been so afraid of him reading his entire world is shaken and nothing is on solid ground. Chesnut nails the sense of frustration of a man who all of a sudden finds his house is build on quicksand. Powerful stuff and again, none of it seems forced or pushed. The victory for virtue as defined by this film, however, is not easy and does not rely on conventional finger waging notions and stereotypes.

The complexity of the characters is only out shone by the dazzling locations and premier acting. The best man pushes the audience to the boundaries of their perceptions and allows Diggs, Long and Chestnut to dispaly what could be said to be their finest work.
Malcom Lee, Spike's cousin dispalys his intricuit understanding of upwardly mobile black New York and allows all who watch regardless of race or socioeconomic position to enter into the world of the autonomous young.
A MUST WATCH FOR ALL PEOPLE WHO LOVE FILM.
The Best Man? No the best film.
Enjoy.

This is one of my favorite movies and in expectation of part two that was coming up, I decided to buy the first one and watch it all over again. It definitely brought back some memories and set my husband up perfectly to watch the sequel as he had never seen the original. Great product, I was very happy with it.

Loved this. Just a harmless, feelgood movie on those cold winter afternoons/evenings when the thought of another celebrity packed TV is all that is offered on the multiple channels without any reprieve. Enjoyed it a lot.

I bought this film as a Christmas gift for a friend. I thoroughly enjoy this film every time I watch it. Very funny. I love the characters as they are portrayed like any regular group of friends who have grown up together or have met through acquaintances. A must see.

The actors are all credible,very appealing and the story is plausible.
It's wonderful to see all the familar faces together in a classy film.
Terrence Howerd is rather good on the guitar, didn't know he could play, but he does it very convincingly, but then I am a little biased as I have a soft spot for his cute little bod. I've seen the other actors in other movies and will be looking out for them in movies as I was impressed with all of them. Maurice Chesthunt, is also a nice sight for sore eyes, well fit. . .
You find yourself becoming invovled in the characters and rooting for them even when they've been caught out.
It's a great value, you won't be disappointed.
