fights to stay alive.
Best part of story, including ending: I really liked this story because it showed how   the group of friends have matured since their young adult   days. They no longer were single men and women but mothers and
fathers. I also loved this story because it showed how strong   love was with the relationship between Lance and Mia.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene in the movie was when Lance, Merch, Quinton,   and Harper did a group performance of New Edition's "Can You Stand   The Rain". The guys looked dapper in their matching Black outfits   and the song "Can You Stand The Rain" defined their generation, the
generation of the mid 30 to 40 year old audience.
