#Win a Best Man Holiday Blu-Ray Prize pack + Great Love/Hate Relationships In Film

On February 11th THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY (featuring an all-star cast led by Taye Diggs and Nia Long) hits Blu-ray and DVD. 

Share the laughter, love and surprises as Harper (Taye Diggs), Lance (Morris Chestnut), Quentin (Terrence Howard), Jordan (Nia Long), Robyn (Sanaa Lathan), Mia (Monica Calhoun), Murch (Harold Perrineau), Candy (Regina Hall) and Shelby (Melissa De Sousa) all reunite for the first time in years. As they share their triumphs and tragedies,  these college friends soon discover how easy it is to reignite long-forgotten rivalries and romances—all while new discoveries are made and secrets are revealed. The Best Man Holiday is the comedy that critics are calling “a feel-good celebration” (James Verniere, Boston Herald). 

Hard to believe the first film was released in 1999, so of course I had to watch it to get ready for this film!  It was great to see these characters back together again and of course I am a die hard Christmas movie fan.  In this film the cast reunites friends as they help each other, repair friendships, over come their pasts and so much more.   You can truly relate to these characters as they struggle with money issues, issues conceiving, etc.   You will feel invested in these characters and rooting for them. Be prepared to laugh, cry and love this film! 

Great Love/Hate Relationships In Film

Terrence Howard and Melissa De Souza find themselves  in a hilarious love/hate relationship as Quentin and Shelby that keeps audiences in stitches in THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY. To celebrate the February 11th release of the film on Blu-ray and DVD, we have put together a list of some of the best love/hate relationships in film. Let the sparks fly!

You’ve Got Mail – Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) and Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) play rival New York bookstore owners who happen to be having flirty conversations with random e-mail “pen pals.” When Fox Books forces Kathleen’s family-owned store to go out of business, her contempt for Joe grows. When they eventually realize that they are, in fact, each other’s mystery “pen pals,” the two realize they have found true love in one another, leading Kathleen to proclaim, “ I wanted it to be you.”

The Proposal – Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds) can’t stand his demanding, controlling, manipulative boss, Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock). However, when it’s discovered that Margaret will be deported for an expired Visa, she persuades him to marry her to keep her from getting deported. Sensing that the marriage may be a sham, the background investigator assigned to Margaret’s case begins to question their relationship. While visiting Andrew’s family in Alaska to tie the knot, the two realize that they’ve fallen in love after all, changing the dynamics of their relationship forever.

Pride and Prejudice – To say there is tension between Elizabeth Bennet (Keira Knightley) and the rich and proud Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen) is a bit of an understatement. Sparks fly from the moment the two meet. However, the old adage of “opposites attract” applies, as Mr. Darcy falls for Elizabeth, despite her standing as a member of a lower social class.

What Happens In Vegas –Joy McNally (Cameron Diaz) and Jack Fuller (Ashton Kutcher) are each going through personal struggles when they decide to go to Vegas and let loose. In their inebriated state, they hook-up and get married. While an annulment seems like a quick fix to their stupid decision, a well-timed bet by Jack with Joy’s money forces the two to figure out how they’ll split one million dollars in winnings. The judge overseeing their annulment forces them to work together as a married couple as punishment for their irresponsible behavior, leading them to go all-in, in the game of love.

10 Things I Hate About You – Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is looking to date his crush, Bianca (Larisa Oleynik). The only problem is, he needs to find Bianca’s older sister Kat (Julia Styles) a date before he can go out with her. Kat isn’t the easiest person to get along with, so Cameron has the unenviable task of trying to find someone who can tolerate her enough to date her. Luckily for him, he finds the perfect guy in Patrick (Heath Ledger). Although they don’t seem to get along at first, Kat eventually opens up to Patrick and they fall for each other.
