  • Summary: Three young men at a wedding remember their experience growing up together in the 1980's in Inglewood, CA.

  1. An across-the-board delight featuring a spot-on ensemble cast that treats the most awkward and embarrassing moments in the rites of passage with affectionate hilarity.
  2. Exists as a seldom represented American time capsule, and it's all good.
  3. A genial story of friendship among three young African-American men that gets far on charm even when the cinema technique falters and stalls.
  4. 63
    A pleasant but relatively inconsequential movie.
  5. 60
    What feels genuine in the film -- mother-son bonds, the wedding party -- is surrounded by overdetermined and formulaic scenes lifted from other films.
  6. The picture, directed by Rick Famuyiwa, becomes a juggling act, contrasting the efforts of the three grown-up buddies to get to a wedding on time, with flashbacks of their youth.
  7. 20
    A mess, a poorly paced, poorly structured, lukewarm comedy-drama that fails even to capitalize on the cheap nostalgia inherent in its plot.
