Think Like a Man
Once again Hollyweird is scratching its collective head over how an urban (translation: black) film could "over perform" to the tune of a $30.6 million opening weekend at the box office. The Best Man Holiday didn't over perform, as much as it was underestimated — just like Think Like a Man and at least half a dozen rom-coms starring predominantly black casts before it in recent years.
The sudsy sequel to Malcolm D. Lee's 1999's sleeper hit The Best Man, reunited the original cast for another game of friends, lovers and rivals. This time around, novelist Harper (Guiding Light alum Taye Diggs) finds himself contending with writers' block, a precariously pregnant wife (Sanaa Latham's Robyn) and a stalled career. When he and Robyn are invited to the sprawling, Gatsby-esque estate of his former best friend, New York Giants' runningback Lance (Morris Chestnut) and Lance's near-angelic wife Mia (Diary of Single Mom's Monica Calhoun), Lance sees it as an opportunity to turn his fortunes around.

Henson, Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Romany Malco, Gabrielle Union, Jerry Ferrara, Terrence J and Regina Hall, knocked Hollywood blockbuster The Hunger Games out of the top spot. READ MORE
