REUNITED & IT FEELS SO GOOD: The "Best Man" Cast Celebrates 12 Years!

  

 

I literally screamed when I got this email.  One of my top 3 FAVORITE movies of ALL time, The Best Man, celebrated its 12 year release date this weekend.  And the entire cast--Taye, Terrence, Morris, Monica, Nia, Sanaa, Regina, and EVERYBODY in between--all got together in L.A. to have a private party to celebrate.

 

Peep the fabulous party pics of the reunited cast after the jump....

 

Wow.  Black surely doesn't crack.  The Best Man cast hit BOA restaurant in L.A. Saturday night to kick it 12 years after they released one of the most romantic black movies to date.  And everyone still looks fab.

Front row: 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.

Director Malcolm Lee said about the cast's reunion:

On Saturday, January 29th, the cast and the director of the 1999 film, The Best Man, which opened at #1 in the box-office, got together in West Hollywood for drinks and dinner to reminisce, catch up and discuss the future. It's hard to believe we all haven't been in the same space for over 12 years, but it was like we've seen each other everyday. It was a joy to reunite with the "Black Pack", one of the best casts ever assembled in my view. Judging from the laughs, conversation and smiles we'd all love to find a way to collaborate again. God willing it'll happen.

Sweet!

YBF chicks Sanaa, Nia, and Regina kicked it with Terrence.  So pretty!

The fellas--Taye, Harold, and Morris--still look like they're having fun after all these years.

Hey Monica Calhoun!

Funniest p-whipped couple ever.

How amazing that everyone went on to have a successful career in their own way.  AND are still acting in major Hollywood films, tv shows, and roles to this day. 

So...Did Jordan ever get married?   Did Harper and Robin's wedding get off without drama?  Did Harper and Jordan ever get it in afterall on the sly?  Did Lance and Mia ever really discuss Harper sexin' Mia?  Did Julian ever end up marrying stripper Candy? Somebody PLEASE bring on the sequel!

I still remember how every woman (including myself) oohed and ahhed at the screen in the Movie theater when Morris Chestnut emerged. This is one of my all time favorite movies. I love seeing Black talent on the big screen. I pray that the cast will come together again and deliver anohter stellar performance.

Beautiful Black ppl all

Beautiful Black ppl all together good film they should have done a spin off like they did with Soul Food movie. That would have been a classic also but i love this movie the best part was at the end when they did the "bus stop" to Cameo- Candy....CLASSIC

People stop acting like its

People stop acting like its only black movies that have gone down the crapper. Hollywood as a whole is not where it should be. I heard somewhere that 96% of what is being put out by Hollywood is wither a reimagining, reboot, or sequal. WTF! But it isnt all hopeless. Black people have the tools to change this. We have the buying power. We just need to encourage creativity. We need to tell Hollywood that we want to see something new. WE WANT SOME GOOD MOVIES. AND WE WANT GOOD MOVIES WITH BLACK ACTORS IN IT. JUST CUZ THERE ARE BLACK LEADS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WHITE AMERICA CANT RELATE. AND STOP WITH THIS 3D BULLISH! For some reason whenever a black person is in the lead its a black movie. There are people all over who could relate Precious. White girls are raped by their fathers. but all of sudden its just a black problem.

The acting was alright but it

The acting was alright but it was so unreal that I would have to give it a four. We know damn well ain't know brother going to go thru with wedding when everythang hit the fan. Then he was replaying it in his mind while saying his vows.....Man please on to the next one.

Love and Basketball, The Best

Love and Basketball, The Best Man, Love Jones, Two Can Play That Game --- Sanaa (Love and Basketball & The Best Man), Morris (The Best Man & Two Can Play ...), Regina (Love and Basketball & The Best Man), Nia (Love Jones & The Best Man) --- These actors/actresses are box office draws because they are good at what they do & they get some of the best scripts. However, SEQUELS would spoil the movies so it is best to leave the movies "as-is."

I just watched it over the

I just watched it over the weekend with my younger sister (who'd never seen it). She was 9 when it came out and now she's 20. HBO has been playing this thing like it's Root or something. Every time I turn it's on. Terrance Howard's character STILL cracks me up. It great they got back together, but I don't think doing a sequel all these years later will be a good thing. Some times it's good to just leave the classics alone.

this was my all time fav

this was my all time fav movie as well; love the movie, and definitely loved the cast!! but one mistake that saw in the writing above, that I'm sure was jus a harmless mistake, because if the writer was a TRUE fan of the movie as claimed.. they would have known that Regina wasn't in this movie, because above when they were listing names with the movie cover.. instead of "Nia" it says "Regina" which I assumed was being referred to Regina King for Nia Long!! I dont thnk they favor, but they are both strong actresses, so I could see where you would have gotn confused!! But I just wanted to point that out, and clear it..
