About Alex pointedly provokes comparisons to The Big Chill, but the script doesn't have enough substance to support them -- or give its talented cast enough to work with. Read critic reviews

    Excellent. This is a thoroughly entertaining film, filled with emotionally-moving characters who feel very real. Worth seeing.

    Amusingly the screenplay completely misses something that is totally obvious about these people . . . that none of them should continue to be friends. True to the blind optimism my generation often has about itself the film, against all the evidence it presents to the contrary, forces the characters to believe that their friendships still have meaning.
