Mia Sullivan (Monica Calhoun), wife of Lance Sullivan (Morris Chestnut), has written letters requesting that the old gang should join them for Christmas: Harper Stewart (Taye Diggs) and his almost-nine-month-pregnant wife Robyn (Sanaa Lathan), Julian "Murch" Murchison (Harold Perrineau) and wife Candace Sparks (Regina Hall), her best friend Jordan Armstrong (Nia Long) and boyfriend Brian McDonald (Eddie Cibrian), Quentin "Q" Spivey (Terrence Howard), and Shelby Taylor (Melissa De Sousa).

Years after his debut novel, Harper is struggling with writer's block, financial difficulties, and pressure from his publisher to come up with newer and better material for his next book.

This is a really great movie with the lot of beautiful people in it
15 November 2013 | by shayv01See all my reviews

I just returned home from seeing this movie. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was everything that a movie is supposed to be. The characters have multiple layers, the storyline has multiple things going on and visually it's lovely. The music in this movie was great. I can't wait to get the soundtrack. But the actors in it were stellar. Terrence Howard was in his prime. He was just so funny and Added perfect humor during the right moments. Beautiful Morris Chestnut was intense and Nia Long is everything. Taye Diggs is the wonderful actor that he always is. I could go on and on about all of the actors in this movie especially the children. They were all so beautiful and so talented. It's a must see.
