It wants to be Boyz in the Hood (Boyz in the Wood) but the obscenity laced dialogue and raw objectification of woman renders it a contrite pretender more along the lines of Booty Call and Trippin.

Isn't particularly memorable.

A well-intentioned exercise in humanism... but as art or a successful narrative, the movie is ultimately empty.

January 1, 2000
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.

It simply sits there, motionless, without any notable attributes to recommend, or that are even worth mentioning. It's unfortunate, but it's the truth.

Nice, but lacks the substance it needs to make us feel as good as it wants us to.

Inane coming-of-age comedy.

It is unremarkable in every way, save one -- the cast is African-American.

Awkward performances, unsure directing flaw The Wood.
January 1, 2000
The Wood spends too much time wallowing in arrested adolescence to make you feel you've traveled anywhere.
January 1, 2000
The Wood isn't all that fresh.
January 1, 2000
Even the charismatic Epps can't bail out a script that lacks tension, too often substitutes high-fives for dialogue or action and calls for farce scenes that used to get 'em rolling in the stone aisles of ancient Greece.
January 1, 2000
Artificial, tension-free.
December 2, 2002
Never delves much deeper into the three friends' psychology than a sitcom pilot would, though the cast try their best.
April 25, 2003
Choppy coming-of-age story.
