The Best Man Cast Reunites!

It's hard to believe, but it's been 12 years since one of my favorite movies, The Best Man, opened in theaters across the country. Yep, over a decade since we all fell in love with the gorgeous buppie crew. To this day, I can still recite some of my favorite lines from the flick. Oh and every time I hear Cameo's "Candy" song I think of this cinematic gem!

The cast and director Malcolm Lee gathered for dinner last Saturday to catch up and take a stroll down memory lane. Check out the pics:

Monica Callhoun, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut and Terrence Howard, Back Row: Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Sanaa Lathan, Harold Perrineau, Melissa DeSousa and Director Malcolm D. Lee.

Are you a fan of The Best Man? If so, what's your favorite scene/line? Where have all of the good movies with a predominately African-American cast gone? :-(

They look great! I hope they are planning to make a part 2 :-) So hard to come by good movies with black actors/actresses.

Hi! Just stopped by and your post caught my eye! I love The Best Man- one of my favorite movies. I love the electric slide scene at the end to the song Candy. I actually used that song for the electric slide at my wedding!

Thanks for the update!
