Cinema: The Best Man

Written and directed by Malcolm Lee

Half a dozen college chums reune to reminisce, bicker and bond. This agitated comedy (produced by Lee's cousin Spike) could be called The Big Chillin' if it had a smidge of the 1983 film's wit and charm. It's nice to see an African-American story set outside the 'hood, and we'll keep calling hunky Taye Diggs a star of the future until he's 60. But he'll have to be in movies better than The Best Man.
