10 Years is an ambitious character piece with a mostly charming cast and problems we can somewhat relate to, but Jamie Linden doesn't give himself nearly enough time to properly progress each character.

This disjointed reunion dramedy really works in its final act, but that conclusion can't make up for what came before.

If nothing else, 10 Years is hip to the fleeting, fundamental joys of revisiting one's youth.

The Most Charming is Oscar Isaac. . who finally gets to be a romantic live wire in the movies. . . Too bad too much of the rest of the reunion and the film is so familiar.

It's about as much fun as spending 100 minutes in a room full of annoying strangers.

Trite, banal and underwhelming.

Once "10 Years" establishes its archetypal characters, you can predict exactly what's going to happen to all of them ...

Is there anything less narratively interesting than a high school reunion that focuses exclusively on the beautiful and popular crowd? Who all now seem to be leading normal, if flawed, lives?

[Linden] also makes a wise decision by having his cast drinking and/or drunk throughout the entire movie. The audience would do well to do the same.

"10 Years," which should have abandoned its attempted comedy and focused on its somewhat effective drama, unintentionally backfires by proving that a real-life Hollywood couple has less on-screen chemistry than two actors who've practically never met.

This should be a new rule for filmmakers: If the people you're following aren't as interesting as the real folks you know and love, your movie won't be much to leave home for or come home to.

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

The movie ebbs and flows: it's interesting for a while, followed by a dull stretch-lively for a bit, then stagnant. Thinking about it, I realized it wasn't very different from a real-life reunion.

It's too bad 10 Years isn't, you know, funny.

The ingredients are there, but not the follow-through: This resolutely niceness-first film just won't stir the pot.

Needless to say, everybody comes equipped with their very own overweight baggage; old grudges are revived, new ones are invented; and big personal revelations -- most of which you can see coming a mile away -- arrive on cue.

If you've scrupulously avoided high-school reunions, don't let this ho-hum film change your mindset.

Anybody who's debating whether to attend his high-school union will certainly be dissuaded from doing so by watching a few minutes of this dismal dramedy.
