What might have been a meaningful exploration of the changes wrought by 20 years of abrasive reality is diverted, essentially, into who's going to wind up sleeping with whom.

Characters are generally middle-of-the-roaders, and pic lacks a tough-minded spokesman who might bring them all up short for a moment.

An irresistibly satisfying cultural artifact.

There is no place for depth or nuance in this slickly engineered complacency machine.

Funny and ferociously smart.

College reunion film with mature themes won't interest teens.

Even if the film isn't timeless, the soundtrack certainly is.
