“..though not so warm and fuzzy as some fans may expect, "The Best Man Holiday" is a more than fitting return that improves upon the original in unexpected ways..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
“..this long-delayed sequel is a very mixed bag, with just enough laughter and tears to squeak by as holiday entertainment..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 5

“..the script's sporadic silliness makes every plot turn questionable; how the talent deftly negotiates such goofiness makes the film near-impossible to resist..”
by Sam Adams [Time Out New York]
3 of 4

“..the film does feel overlong and the tone is occasionally wobbly. But Lee keeps the pace generally steady, mixing comedy and melodrama in even amounts..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
Review rate : B-

“..The Best Man Holiday is an eggnog that's sticky-sweet and heavy at the same time..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]

“..it's disappointing that, after such a promising beginning, The Best Man Holiday becomes just another sugary seasonal confection, although thanks to Howard's Quentin, we get enough sass with the sugar to make it at least somewhat worthwhile..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

“..it's designed to be a crowd pleaser and it certainly hits its mark..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

“..a likable cast and interior-decor porn worthy of Martha Stewart Living are the highlights of "The Best Man Holiday," but the mix of raunchy sex comedy and Christian faith doesn't quite come off..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
3.5 of 5

“.."The Best Man" holiday includes a sex montage that features all the different characters engaging in various acts, all set to Christmas music..”
