Three Best Friends
Verified purchase
This story is about three friends who met when they were 13 years old. They remain friends into adulthood, when one of them is scheduled to be married. It is a picture of the groom (and the bride, it turns out) having last minute thoughts about whether to go through with the wedding. It is fun, and at times shows the danger of growing up in the "Wood", the Inglewood neighborhood in the LA area.

If you want to take a break from over the top action or zany comedy Hollywood fare and want to bask in the warmth and quiet strength of a really well performed and produced film about growing up with best friends, I am pretty sure The Wood will be something you should watch. The cast is really what makes the movie, from the warm and mature performances of the three friends and their classmates as we watch them go through high school together, to the strong and sexy performances of the best friends as young men, grown and moving up but still (which is another key positive for me) remembering the bond with your past. I can see this movie over and over...and I have so I can recommend it very very highly.

One of my all time favorite movies, so I was glad to find it ...

One of my all time favorite movies, so I was glad to find it on here. It's a good movie, maybe not a family movie tho. Good story about three guys that remained friends into adulthood. and one is about to get married. In flashbacks it shows how they met and some of the adventures they went thru together. I recommend it.

I remember seeing this at the movies and I'm just now buying it! Just a nostalgic movie for me. Plus it came out the same year my son was born.

Inglewood Odyssey
Verified purchase
A pleasant movie about the pain of growing up and the fear of marriage, all in the context of three childhood friends and the close bonds between them. There is perhaps too much preoccupation with sex to the exclusion of all other concerns, apart from stylish clothes. The acting was fair, and there were plenty of funny scenes.
