The men discuss women, never facing their own double standard; Jordan wants to try again with Harper, at least for one night; and Harper fears that Lance will read his book and learn that the bride-to-be slept with him once to avenge Lance's many affairs.
Can Harper mature before Lance kills him, Jordan seduces him, and he loses Robin?

The Best Man is the MALE version of "Waiting to Exhale".
A well crafted example of relationships from a black man's perpective, it finally shows "the LOVE game" from the opposite side of the street for a change.
That reason alone makes "Best Man", a cool "Blockbuster Night" flick.
