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?

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

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

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

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

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

Linden manages to overcome what would seem to be a premise fraught with peril with a lot of help from a likable cast, making "10 Years" a surprisingly enjoyable movie.

'10 Years' is a surprisingly solid variation on a familiar tune.

Writer/director Jamie Linden and his excellent cast beautifully evoke the sentimental magic inherent in their scenario.

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.

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.

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

Even when the script seems ready to settle for clich - with cavemen guys being civilized by the more evolved women in their life - it takes a slight detour.

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?

There's a lot of been-there, done-that going on. That said, this very distant, slightly more youthful cousin to The Big Chill presents a convincing version of a 10-year high school reunion.

An unpretentious, well-acted ensemble piece that doesn't aspire to be a portentous generational time capsule like "The Big Chill," "American Graffiti" or "Diner."

10 Years does nothing noteworthy, but it does it well, thanks to its ensemble cast.

A strong cast convincingly captures the many ways in which adulthood proves far more complicated than what's imagined at 18.

An amiable, seriocomic high-school-reunion movie, 10 Years succeeds in pulling off a fine varsity talent show.

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