    Outstanding Movie!!!

    "The Best Man" is a movie beautifully shot, showed how successful black folks are, and how we love to hear about the romances of a wedding. The best movie to just relax and relate to. Everyone of the actors or actresses really held their game tight. Just simply, a classic movie of 1999.

    Awesome!

    I am a white woman and this is about African American people, but I feel that any single late 20 something, early 30 something male or female can relate to this. It is about a group of old schoolmates from college and the different things that they have accomplished or been through since school and how noone has really changed at all. The player is still playing, the book worm is still all about education, the snob is the same, the workaholic is buried deeper than ever. But the two who did change are the couple that gets married. This movie makes one reflect on themselves and which person they are like and where one is in life. At least it did so for me. I love this movie so much, that i have rented it repeatedly. Everytime that I go to buy it in a store, I cannot find it. So, I am glad to find it here and now I will purchase it! Dana No.VA
