Film: The Best Man Holiday

If you haven’t already watched it. The Best Man Holiday is a sequel (surprise!) to the movie The Best Man, which came out in 1999. Still featuring the same old (gorgeous) cast, this movie takes us forward 15 years (literally) to when Harper’s next book needs to come out, pasts of stripper wives are revealed […]
