Taye Diggs plays Harper, a writer who's about to explode into the mainstream.

Leaving behind his girlfriend, Robin, he heads to New York City to serve as best man for his friend Lance's wedding.

Once there, he reunites with the rest of his college circle: the girlfriend-whipped Murch, the aimless Quentin, and the professionally motivated Jordan, his former almost-lover, who Harper has always shared a mutual sexual attraction.

The men discuss women, never facing their own double standard; Jordan wants to try again with Harper, at least for one night.

Meanwhile Harper fears that Lance will read his book and learn that the bride-to-be slept with him once to avenge Lance's many affairs.

Can Harper mature before Lance kills him, Jordan seduces him, and he loses Robin?

A film that focuses on serious human issues, Malcolm D. Lee's directorial debut is a crowd pleasing success.

This movie is rated R for language and sexuality.
