Consensus: The Best Man Holiday manages honest laughs out of broad humor, and affects convincing drama from a deeply conventional plot.

Wesley Morris

You leave emotionally exhausted, but there's a lot of care in this movie.

Even if some of the crudeness and the drama feel forced, it's hard to hate.

Touching, fun, unexpected yet a bit disjointed, The Best Man Holiday will satisfy die-hard fans of the first film and help usher in the holiday movie season.

The Best Man Holiday is an inelegant movie, but its cast is so damn likable that we're still willing to follow them - even when they're not going anywhere.

A movie that does to your emotions exactly what one player does to another on the big Christmas game day: slams them to the ground and stomps them silly.

Still, The Best Man Holiday contains some strong moments and good acting; the cast is as likable as ever, even if the film doesn't take many bold risks.
