From boyhood to manhood, you can always count on your best friends.

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 "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 chronicledin this unforgettable tale of laughs and friendship that's set to the most memorable musical grooves of the '80s.
