    Who Ever did Harper's wardrobe for the Best Man 1. I SWEAR they copied EVERYTHING I WORE.

    It fugged me up when people kept asking me had I seen this movie. When I seen it, I feel in love again with ME.

    YUP, movies do that.

    As to Sergio asking what's the big deal about The Best Man, its is CRYSTAL CLEAR that the peeps that run this sight are Dumb as Fugg and are Devoid of their history. And therefore, devoid of themselves.

    No Brainer- you named 10 movies, all with a wide appeal, in a ten year span. Just like you mention the better films, we can't ignore the over abundance of negativity as well. I urged my local art house theatre to show Middle of Nowhere and Medicine for Melancoly as well as their usual fare. I know about the need for greater emphasis on independent black film, that's why I'm on this site. Thanks for your reply.

    I'll be looking for the next trailer. This one was mainly a rehash of the first movie. Ya'll aren't slick....I want more clips of the upcoming film. LOL

    At the time of its release, The Best Man had the most sought after roles in Hollywood for African Americans. Because of the success of Boys from the Hood, there was a decade of black hood and gangster movies. It was nice to see a well acted, well photographed movie where everyone who was black had a good job and there was not a gun in sight. It's still better than anything Tyler Perry has done (although Tyler's a marketing genius).

    "Because of the success of Boys from the Hood, there was a decade of black hood and gangster movies" -- BIG DM

    Decade, being the 90's. Am I the only one who didn't see the hood films as that dominate ever? That same decade had films like Boomerang, Waiting to Exhale, The Preacher's Wife, Love Jones, Soul Food, Hav Plenty, Eve's Bayou, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, etc.? Are black people paying attention?

    And are you only looking forward to black films where there isn't a gun in sight, where black people have good jobs? We're not that limited as a people, are we? What about the many bio pics in the 90's, like Malcolm X, the Hurricane and Rosewood?

    This is exactly why SHADOW&ACT is necessary and a must read by any black person who want to see black films. I may not agree with the way they do things and their opinions on films, which I suggest everyone take with a grain of salt, but they are providing black people with information about films that they wouldn't otherwise know about.

    I, for one, never had that problem. I knew about all the releases, especially the black releases, even back in the 90's.

    I agree Big DM ... part of the appeal, for me, was its depiction of Blacks as intelligent, attractive professionals - a departure from the hood/gangster movies that were the hot commodity in Black Cinema back then. Primarily, though, I enjoy a good romantic comedy, and I appreciated seeing one featuring a Black cast (with the initial draws, at the time, being Taye Diggs, Nia Long, and Morris Chestnut).

    "It was nice to see a well acted, well photographed movie where everyone who was black had a good job and there was not a gun in sight"

    Now you see that's the point. It was because of that? Are people THAT desperate? I was like "Ho hum"

  • sergio | May 14, 2013 7:10 AMReply

    Somebody please has to tell me what's the BIG deal with The Best Man? I don't remember a thing about it (even while watching it).

    Same goes for love jones and Love and Basketball. Maybe it's because I'm a guy

  • NO BRAINER | May 14, 2013 10:46 AM

    Wow. We actually agree on something. Now I must go and do 100 Our Fathers and a 1000 Hail Mary's.

  • Monique Williams | May 14, 2013 7:01 AMReply

    Ummm.... Yes. Times 10000. People like me are thrilled, but its not for everyone. I'm excited to see my "friends" again. #memories #blackdontcrack

  • Anderson | May 14, 2013 12:48 AMReply

    Outside the personal proclivities of the actors, what I personally enjoyed about the first film was the intelligence, friendship and "romance" of a group professional folk of African descent being on display, proudly on display. Not sure where that storyline is going, but the white dude kissing Nia sort of disappointed me.

  • NO BRAINER | May 14, 2013 12:25 AMReply

    Damn. They all look madd old....lol. Started it all? Started what? The black wedding movies? I guess so.

  • AJ | May 14, 2013 12:13 AMReply

    It looks like good Black don't crack!

  • Chris H | May 13, 2013 11:34 PMReply

    So I guess the hot trend nowadays is successful Black Women getting their trophy White Man? Interesting...

  • starry118 | May 14, 2013 9:25 AM

    I think Love is beautiful, no matter what colors are represented, but I do appreciate it when Black Love is celebrated ... you really don't see much of that portrayed on TV nowadays.

  • ScriptTease | May 14, 2013 2:29 AM

    I guess they figure since black men do it in real life, then black women will do it on Television. Seems everyone is chasing white these days....

  • taylor | May 13, 2013 7:16 PMReply

    Everyone looks Great! I hope they continue to make positive romantic movies like this, it never gets boring or old to me when I see african americans portrayed in a postive light. No thugs, guns, drug addicts or hoochies.

  • starry118 | May 14, 2013 9:22 AM

    Amen to that Taylor ... I completely agree.

  • Nadia | May 13, 2013 6:37 PMReply

    I just feel kinda blah about it. No shade. No hate. Just blah. Should've left it alone did something else. All these black romantic comedies are starting to blend into each other. Doesn't help that the same group of actors just seem to rotate through all of them. I hope after they all come out we'll move on to something else.

  • Dejon The Deacon Jernagin | May 13, 2013 6:18 PMReply

    Love all the Actors in the film hope it's a great script not just a name drop to get you to the movies!

  • stnh | May 13, 2013 5:23 PMReply

    Looks like someone got the release date right...

  • MICHABOA | May 13, 2013 10:02 PM

    LOL! My thoughts exactly.

  • Donella | May 13, 2013 5:11 PMReply

    Amazing that they were able to reassemble the entire main cast. Everyone looks great. I'm on board!

  • Shawn | May 13, 2013 4:34 PMReply

    That's why it's called a teaser trailer, it's not supposed to give out many details.

  • Campbell | May 13, 2013 4:32 PMReply

    Good to see, although I think the music was a little heavy handed.
    They trying to push the soundtrack to early!

  • august | May 13, 2013 4:28 PMReply

    It just occurred to me that the white dude that kissed Nia Long, did that to mark his territory: "this is my woman" lol

  • Rev. Gloria | May 13, 2013 4:28 PMReply

    Love, love, love this movie!

  • Jen | May 13, 2013 4:23 PMReply

    As much as I want to see this movie, this trailer is kind of corny.

  • Jug | May 13, 2013 4:11 PMReply

    I can't front, that trailer brought back SO many good memories man LOL, that movie really did make a mark on me. I'm officially in the "rooting for it" camp!

  • saadiyah | May 13, 2013 8:29 PM

    Yep the trailer had me squealing! My faves have reunited and they all look dang good!

  • NinaG | May 13, 2013 4:25 PM

    Ditto. The trailer told me nothing about the sequel but it made me smile seeing the cast in new and old scenes.
