About the Movie
Lots of guys have second thoughts about marriage. Three hours before his wedding, Roland (Taye Diggs) is having third, fourth and fifth thoughts. Good thing he's got best buddies Slim (Richard T. Jones) and Mike (Omar Epps) around to help sort those feelings out– and to remember their coming-of-age days in "The Wood" (Inglewood, California). From the big dance to first love, the rites of passage that are part of everyone's growing up are winningly chronicled in this unforgettable tale of laughs and friendship that's set to the most memorable musical grooves of the '80s.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A savvy, good-natured comedy!
Fresh: Famuyiwa has kicked up fertile new storytelling territory for black filmmakers.
Rotten: This rambling and episodic autobiographical saga of three friends coming of age in Inglewood, Calif. in the '80s is so determined to be likable that it forgets to be interesting.
Fresh: An across-the-board delight featuring a spot-on ensemble cast that treats the most awkward and embarrassing moments in the rites of passage with affectionate hilarity.
