Movie Monday: The Best Man

I like reading posts on other book bloggers sites that aren't always related to books. So I started thinking about what non book related thinks I would like to post. Movie Monday should be interesting since I like random things. You see mostly older movies but maybe you'll find something new to watch.

The Best Man
Release date: October 22, 1999 (USA)
Director: Malcolm D. Lee
Starring: Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, and Nia Long
Rated: R

After writing a soon-to-be bestselling novel, writer and committed bachelor Harper Stewart (Taye Diggs) attempts to hide the fact that his saucy new book is loosely based on the lives and loves of his tight-knit group of friends. Harper is set to be best man at his friend Lance's (Morris Chestnut) wedding, and all his friends will be in attendance. When an advance copy of the book makes its way into the hands of his ex-flame, Jordan Armstrong (Nia Long), Harper attempts to keep it under wraps.

This is one of my favs. All the characters bring something to the movie. So basically the crew all went to college together. Harper and Lance are the main focus of the movie. Harper did some shady crap back when the group were in college. You know how they say write what you know, well that's what Harper did. He changed the names and some of the activities/hobbies. But everyone involved knew who they were. So why in the world would you write your secret into a book. Needless to say, Lance is the last to read the book, figures everything out  and promptly beats the crap out of Harper. That's my favorite scene in the movie. Mostly because I don't care for Taye Diggs. Anyway... The bride is clueless to everything that is going on throughout the entire movie. It's drama filled in an entertaining way. If you haven't seen it, you should.

Note: As with any black wedding event (cliche) movie ends with the electric slide. I say cliche but honestly I have yet to go to a bbq or family reunion/large family gathering where the electric slide hasn't gone down.
