Movie Info

The Cleary brothers, Sam (John Cena), Leo (Ethan Embry) and Douglas (Boyd Holbrook) take dysfunctional families to a new level: Sam and Leo have grown up hating each other and neither likes their juvenile kid brother, Douglas, to whom they've only recently been introduced. The three boys share the same father, but all have different mothers. Their father died a rich man and when they're brought together by their sister Nina (Amy Smart) to learn which one of them will inherit the old man's fortune, they are handed an unpleasant surprise. A requirement of the will is that the three estranged siblings go into business together as bail bondsmen. Their first job takes them into the mountains of Mexico where they encounter a drug lord and uncover a kidnapping plot, masterminded by an embittered entrepreneur (Michael Rispoli) that will endanger them all. -- (C) Samuel Goldwyn

The WWE's campaign to turn its brutes into box office deals another tepid hand with The Reunion.

There's one thing to be said about WWE Studios -- they're consistent. Every one of their movies designed to showcase their stable of popular wrestling stars has been a critical and commercial disaster.

If John Cena wants to follow in the footsteps of fellow wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, he might want to learn to smile. Or at least to pick better material than "The Reunion."

Frequently ludicrous and cheerfully inept, Michael Pavone's action comedy does manage to eke out a few drops of slapdash charm.

"The Reunion" has no pretensions of originality, and maybe that's just fine.

A split personality action comedy that fails to please either impulse. The action is wan, the laughs hard to come by.

Audience Reviews for The Reunion

Three unlikely half brothers have to work a job together for two years in order to inherite 3 million each. Fun to watch.

This was a strange story of 4 siblings with different mothers. After being brought together by their father's death the 3 brothers set out to track down a kidnapped billionaire and the expected hijinks ensue.

The film wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I felt like I was watching a TV Show pilot. The film feels like Four Brothers meets The Rundown. One problem that I had with this film, was that some actors felt miscast. I thought Cena felt out of place here. Ethan Embry, Michael Rispoli, Gregg Henry, and Amy Smart are all fine here.
