After a $30 million plus debut weekend, movie goers attended in droves- reliving memories of their favorite characters and following their story lines like a soap opera.
Lee, who wrote, produced and directed the 1999 debut and the holiday sequel will work with Sean Daniel to continue the surprising franchise story. The Best Man Holiday undoubtedly stirred deep emotion in movie goers everywhere. Shamelessly commanding compassion, viewers submitted to tear jerking moments, then laughed before the tear could hit the ground.
