Old wounds are opened and buried secrets unearthed when the members of a Yale secret society come together for a reunion, and discover the reason why love and happiness has always eluded them. As students at Yale, they were some of the brightest that the Ivy League had to offer. Not only that, but they were all part of an elite secret society that was carefully guarded from outsiders. Years later, they have all moved on to successful careers. But the opportunity to rationalize who they have

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
No one's problems inspire much interest, and the stuffy banality of the dialogue is multiplied by the lackluster surroundings.
A respectable B-list cast (Cynthia Stevenson, Jessica Hecht, Christopher McDonald) wades through a sludgy script that finds estranged friends reuniting decades after college.
This may not be quite the moment to solicit our sympathy for self-absorbed beneficiaries of Ivy League privilege.
As well versed in these characters and their milieu as Hruska may be, their dilemmas seem guessed-at rather than lived.
Since no one in the cast is a household name, the series of confessions and critiques resemble nothing so much as actors' auditions.
It's a wonder a group of experienced film professionals could not make "Reunion" look and sound the least bit proficient or even entertaining
Filled with psychobabble, it comes across as a muddled melodrama about entitled elitists.
Despite a terrific cast, it suffers from a lazy and dull screenplay that fails to generate any palpable drama or memorable characters.
The characters' narcissism spills over into the audience and rather than sympathize or empathize, your instinct is to protect yourself from them and their mid-life crises.
This reunion of old college friends gets a leaden treatment in what is effectively a one-act play posing as a film.
A Big Chill-ish enterprise whose serious intentions aren't enough to compensate for the two-dimensionality of its stock archetypes.
Provocative and thoughtful, a movie that can't help but make you take a long look at yourself.
There's not much reason to check out this shameless rip-off of The Big Chill, unless you've never seen the original, and you're inclined to watch a bunch of entitled Ivy Leaguers acting out like spoiled brats in the midst of a midlife crisis.
