The flower arrangements have all been ordered…The sleeping arrangements are still being worked out…And the battle of the sexes is about to heat up-big time. From cousins, writer/director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Spike Lee comes the romantic comedy The Best Man, a revealing look at the more intimate side of life for a group of successful friends who are reunited when one of their college buddies gets married.
Harper Stewart (Taye Diggs), a commitment-shy writer and the best man at the wedding of Lance (Morris Chestnut) and Mia (Monica Calhoun), is nervous-and with good reason. His steamy new novel hits bookstores soon, and when his friends finally read it he knows they will notice more than just a passing resemblance to the characters depicted in the book. To make matters worse, one of the bridesmaids, Jordan (Nia Long), an ambitious TV producer, has obtained an advance copy of the book-and it’s making the rounds with all his friends.
With vows about to be exchanged and friendships renewed, the pressure is on. For by the end of the weekend, scandalous secrets from the book involving close friends and loved ones will be revealed, and everyone will have re-evaluated their relationships with each other, their lovers and with themselves – for better or for worse.
