Man, why do you always do that? If you want the last piece, why did you ask me if I want the last piece?
I didn't ask you. But the reason I asked Mike is the same reason you asked Lisa to marry you- it sounds nice, man.

Not only a warming comedy but a great, realistic and positive 'childhood to manhood' story
The Wood starring Omar Epps, Taye Diggs, Sean Nelson, Melinda Williams, De' Aundre Bonds and Antwon Tanner was a perfect positive black film that deserves alot of credit. Unlike The Best Man, it doesn't have a boring pre-wedding story - actually it's a lot of fun as the three friends talk about their fun childhood in 'The Wood' a.k.a Inglewood, California. The flashback scenes are done so nicely and the characters are written in detailed fashion and come across very realistically.
When I first seen the trailer I was like it would probably be an O.K. movie but it was alot better than I could possibly expect and turns out to be a big winner, this is a sleeper for 1999
