    Mortality serves as the catalyst and overwhelming drive for a group of former college buddies to reunite, reminisce, and reevaluate what they have and may become in light of the death of one of their own. Fraught with meaningful performances and challenging vignettes, even if they do not mirror your own life, this becomes a group you recognize by tale's end.

    Solid drama. It's an interesting window into the lives of a tight-knit group of friends as they gather together after the loss of a friend. It's melancholic and touching and just makes you wish you were part of a group as tight as this.

    You can't always get what you want........pretty much says it about this movie. Old friends, years gone by, memories ; some true, some changed in our heads by time. You can't recreate a moment in time but the core love is still there.

    Remains sincere without ever slipping fully into sentimentality, funny without devolving into farce. The message may, by the end, turn out to be happiness in resignation, hopelessness in riches, a slickly cynical outlook on how 60s youth counterculture turned into 80s yuppy centralists. Despite the transformation from a mythical materialism (grounded in revolution) to a modern materialism (grounded in Reagan), the point here is what remains ideal and eternal: Friendship, love, sex, drugs, & rock 'n roll.
