Critic's Review Heading
Good
So-called "urban" films almost always tend to be consigned to a box office ghetto of their own, rarely connecting beyond its target African-American audiences, even if the film has cross-demographic appeal. Even with the promotional muscle of MTV Productions behind it, THE WOOD is not likely to be an exception to the rule, but this warm and funny, if somewhat uneven, film deserves to be.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Mike (Omar Epps) and Slim (Richard T. Jones) never thought they'd see the day their man Roland (Taye Diggs) would strut down the aisle to get married. Neither, apparently, did Roland, who ducks out just hours before the ceremony and turns up at the house of his high school sweetheart, Tanya (Tamala Jones). Though he adores his fiancee (Lisaraye), Roland sees the impending nuptials as a separation from those who have always been closest to him, his neighborhood partners from Inglewood, which they fondly refer to as the Wood.

After Mike (Epps) and Slim (Jones) track down their cold-footed friend Roland (Diggs), they begin reliving their teenage days growing up in the 1980s - an era of chasing girls, jheri curls, K-Swiss tennis shoes and hip-hop beats. As these three friends revisit some of their old stomping grounds, they know that two big words uttered later in the day will change their friendships forever.
