March 6, 2009
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 3, 2009
Not so much a Big Chill knockoff as a poor man's Whit Stillman comedy.
August 8, 2009
It's a wonder a group of experienced film professionals could not make "Reunion" look and sound the least bit proficient or even entertaining
March 6, 2009
Despite a terrific cast, it suffers from a lazy and dull screenplay that fails to generate any palpable drama or memorable characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.0/10
March 6, 2009
A Big Chill-ish enterprise whose serious intentions aren't enough to compensate for the two-dimensionality of its stock archetypes.
March 4, 2009
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 10, 2009
Filled with psychobabble, it comes across as a muddled melodrama about entitled elitists.
Full Review| Original Score: 6/10
March 6, 2009
A drearily pretentious, ultra-stagy exercise in middle-age self-loathing.
March 6, 2009
This may not be quite the moment to solicit our sympathy for self-absorbed beneficiaries of Ivy League privilege.

March 4, 2009
Since no one in the cast is a household name, the series of confessions and critiques resemble nothing so much as actors' auditions.
March 6, 2009
This reunion of old college friends gets a leaden treatment in what is effectively a one-act play posing as a film.
March 6, 2009
A respectable B-list cast (Cynthia Stevenson, Jessica Hecht, Christopher McDonald) wades through a sludgy script that finds estranged friends reuniting decades after college.

March 6, 2009
No one's problems inspire much interest, and the stuffy banality of the dialogue is multiplied by the lackluster surroundings.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 1, 2009
A soap opera disguised as a serious chamber drama in the tradition of Paddy Chayefsky.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 5, 2009
Provocative and thoughtful, a movie that can't help but make you take a long look at yourself.
