10 Years (2012)



Critic Consensus: A sweet ensemble comedy about a high school reunion, 10 Years is well cast but unfortunately predictable and short on three dimensional characters.

Movie Info

In this ensemble comedy, 10 Years follows a group of friends on the night of their high school reunion who, a decade later, still haven't quite grown up. Channing Tatum plays Jake, who is deeply in love with his girlfriend (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and ready to propose-until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in years. Jake's friend Cully (Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend (Ari Graynor), and has been looking forward to the reunion so he can finally apologize to all the classmates he bullied in high school. However, after a few too many drinks, the jock-turned-family man ends up reverting back to his old ways instead. Meanwhile, longtime rivals Marty (Justin Long) and A.J (Max Minghella) spend the night picking up right where they left off, vying to impress the hottest girl in class (Lynn Collins). The famous one of the group, Reeves (Oscar Isaac) is now a rock star, but is still too shy to talk to his high school crush (Kate Mara.)-- (C) Officialmore

All Critics (60) | Top Critics (20)

10 Years is no Big Chill, but it has just enough warmth to keep it alive.

Top Critic

A bracingly un-gimmicky, heartfelt and fresh take on the theme of growing up.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Even the most exhausted, hackneyed and innately annoying genre can yield a film of breezy charm and prickly dramatic consequence.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

An inconsequential high-school-reunion comedy that gets better when it stops trying to make you laugh.

It's easy to see how Linden attracted such a star-studded young cast. Most every character has his or her own moment, and many of them deliver lines that stick with you.

To hate 10 Years is like hating the enthusiastic girl who organizes your high school reunion-- can you really be so mean when so much effort was made and a reasonably good time was had by all?

Audience Reviews for 10 Years

Former classmates attend their high school reunion. Some have dysfunctional families now; some have made it big; some are still the same old chuckleheads they have always been; and some are old flames with unfinished business to face. It's a nice slice of quarter-life crisis with some beautiful moments of forgiveness and understanding. My favorite storyline was with Oscar Isaac and Kate Mara as the now famous musician and the girl he never had. The scene of Reeves being coerced into basically karaoke-ing his own hit song and the "funny yellow shoes" lyric that sparks Elise's dawning realization that the song is about her is so full of romantic tension and dramatic irony.

Nothing overly funny, or overly charming, or overly anything. Just a nice movie to pass the time...

10 Years was a forgetable film. I didn't hate it though. I actually enjoyed most of it. Some of the story lines were a bit boring. The ones I enjoyed were Jake and Jess, Marty and A.J., then Reeves and Elise's. The rest kinda faded in the background or were just annoying. I didn't attend my high school reunion and probably never will. I really can't remember much of the classes I had, but I remember all the partying, Lol. I guess you could say I wasn't really "there" a lot. So I don't feel the need to go back. Plus I still have the huge group of friends I had then, so if I wanna reminisce I can just call them up Lol.
The movie isn't something you would miss if you didn't see it. Just an average flick with forgetable performances.
