With his beautiful, supportive girlfriend Robyn (Sanaa Lathan) and a burgeoning career as a writer, hotshot Harper (Taye Diggs) seems to have it made. But an invitation to the wedding of his college friends poses a minefield of temptations and potential drama. An advance copy of Harper’s autobiographical novel is making the rounds, and Harper worries that his college buddies—reformed playboy Lance (Morris Chestnut), smooth-talker Quentin (Terrence Howard), and mild-mannered Murch (Harold Perrineau)—will recognize themselves in the book’s salacious details. Further complicating matters, Harper still has feelings for old flame Jordan (Nia Long). As the festivities get underway, long-buried secrets come to the surface and threaten to tear the friends apart. With its dynamite soundtrack and star-studded cast, this funny, touching romantic comedy is primed to do the Electric Slide into the pantheon of great wedding movies.
Cast: Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau
