Movie Info

Mourning the sudden death of his parents, Daniel invites his childhood friends up to their lake house in an attempt to relive the glory days of their youth -- whether they like it or not. Things take a turn for the worse when it becomes clear that none of his friends share his nostalgia for the good old days -- and his ex-girlfriend shows up with a new fiancé. But as the night progresses, secrets are confessed, romances are rekindled, and a particularly epic game of Whiskey Slaps is played. (C) Tribeca

In sticking with seven friends and one outsider/interloper, Lowell hews so close to the reunion-film formula he ends up stifling anything new that may otherwise have resulted.

... manages some amusing moments and shows flashes of visual flair along the way, but it treads familiar territory with scenarios that gradually feel more contrived than authentic.

Beside Still Waters grows a bit choppy in the third act, but like the best ensemble films the ensemble itself is enough of a reason to travel these rough narrative waters.

"Still Waters," in the case of this limp "Big Chill" clone, run pretty shallow
