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.

No one's problems inspire much interest, and the stuffy banality of the dialogue is multiplied by the lackluster surroundings.

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.

A drearily pretentious, ultra-stagy exercise in middle-age self-loathing.

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.

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.

Since no one in the cast is a household name, the series of confessions and critiques resemble nothing so much as actors' auditions.

Not so much a Big Chill knockoff as a poor man's Whit Stillman comedy.
Simon Abrams

A soap opera disguised as a serious chamber drama in the tradition of Paddy Chayefsky.
