There are multiple ways to “win” and ‘The Best Man Holiday’ is achieving many of them – ironically without hitting #1 on the charts.

Despite being blocked from the top spot by the omnipotent ‘Thor: The Dark World’, the Malcolm D. Lee movie (which hit #2) is this week’s hottest topic after grossing a whopping $30.6 Million in the US during its opening weekend (November 15th-17th).

A major success on the merit of those numbers alone, its blockbuster status is cemented by the fact that it cost just $17 Million to make – meaning that the film almost doubled its production cost immediately.

Qualitatively, the dramedy echoes the message ‘Think Like A Man’ sent to Hollywood big wigs last year year:  Black audiences do support Black movies when they’re: a) well written, acted, produced, and promoted and b) aren’t stereotypical re-hashes that reek of blaxploitation.

‘Holiday, which serves as the sequel to 1999′s ‘The Best Man’, reunites the entire cast of the first film which includes Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Terrence Howard, Regina Hall, and Sanaa Lathan. The narrative of the latest instalment sees the college friends reunite over the Christmas holidays after 15 years apart. As audiences are learning, the crew quickly discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited. {Source}
