The Best Man: The Final Chapters feels like going back home. What started as a top tier 90s rom-com before continuing as a highly underrated 2010s Christmas film concludes, more than two decades later, as a streaming-service limited series, and it returns like only two years have passed, not 20. Being one of the best romance franchises ever doesn’t protect the series from predictable genre tropes, but the chemistry, performances, and soul on display cover for any missteps the story may take. Honestly, the decades of Black Excellence on screen shines through the brightest…and that was everything.
