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.
Seriously good film!
So i'm browsing the films for a fiver section and came across The Wood, i thought, ok looks alright especially for a fiver, and omar epps normally does good movies.But to be honest i didn't expect greatness. What i got was so much more, it was just a really good movie and will have you glued to your tv or ipod.It has that 80's hood feeling to it, like the film Boyz N the Hood.It's a story of reminiscing in the good old days and boy were they good.If you like urban hood movies that are funny and entertaining, then i advise you get this, an absolute steal for £5.
This is one of the best movies definitely a must see !!!!!!
I love this movie soooo much brings back memories...and Luther Vandross's classic 'if this world were mine ' just makes you melt. A great film to love and laugh with x
