The Best Man


Time Out says

As Harper Stewart (Diggs) prepares to act as best man at a friend's wedding, it emerges that his about-to-be-published first novel, 'Unfinished Business', is a thinly disguised roman-à-clef. The wedding guests gather - among them Jordan (Long), one of the affianced author's old flames - former times recalled, and the talk gets round to putting real names to Harper's literary faces. So much for the under-powered plot, from tyro writer/director Malcolm D Lee, to which the tiresome unearthing of nice guy Harper's previous dalliances contributes little. The strong cast riff on fidelity, loyalty and commitment, and unsurprisingly the nuptial schmaltz is ladled on in the final reel.
