FULL SYNOPSIS

Ten years later, writer and director [[Performer~P111663~John Singleton~johnsingleton]] returns to the South Central Los Angeles neighborhoods of his debut film [[Feature~V6891~Boyz 'N the Hood~boyznthehood]] (1991). [[Performer~P290116~Tyrese Gibson~tyresegibson]] stars as Jody, a jobless 20-year-old African-American man who has fathered two children by two different women, Yvette ([[Performer~P290117~Taraji P. Henson~tarajiphenson]]) and Peanut ([[Performer~P269921~Tamara LaSeon Bass~tamaralaseonbass]]), although he still lives with his 36-year-old mother Juanita ([[Performer~P520011~Adrienne-Joi Johnson~ajjohnson]]). As Jody grapples with the increasing pressures of adult responsibility, he also contends with his troubled best friend Sweetpea ([[Performer~P27668~Omar Gooding~omargooding]]) and new adversary Rodney ([[Performer~P235011~Snoop Doggy Dogg~snoopdoggydogg]]). Then there's his mother's live-in boyfriend Marvin ([[Performer~P59836~Ving Rhames~vingrhames]]), a reformed gangsta who agrees with Juanita that her son should grow up, move out, and move on. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
