½ The Best Man Holiday Nearly 15 years after his entertaining directorial debut, “The Best Man” (1999), writer-director Malcolm D. Lee reunites his nine fractious, inseparable, and very funny college chums for a holiday celebration. The characters have come a long way professionally and romantically, and they still deliver Lee’s sharp dialogue with pizzazz. Unfortunately, the fun fizzles long before the ending, which is prolonged, trite, and absurd. (122 min., R) (Peter Keough)
