Pals reconnect in reunion-set dramedy; some iffy stuff.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that 10 Years is a high school reunion-set dramedy that's full of nostalgia for the way it was and what might have been. Teens may find it interesting to see adult characters looking back on their teen exploits, though the movie doesn't really make high school -- at least the high school the characters (including teen faves Channing Tatum and Justin Long) went to -- sound all that fun. Expect some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k"), plenty of drinking (sometimes to excess), references to getting high, and some conversations about bullying (though it's played for laughs). There's also a fair bit of sex talk, though not much action beyond kissing/making out.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about the appeal of movies about reunions. What makes them rich for material? Does 10 Years add anything new to the conversation?
  • Parents, talk to your kids about drinking (and drug use) in high school. It's a common plotline in high school-themed movies -- does it really happen that often? What are the real-life consequences?
  • Who do you think 10 Years is intended to appeal to? Does it succeed?

Who Got Fat? Who Didn't Change? Who Got Rich? Who Got Hot? Very good movie, really enjoyed it! There is no novelty or breakthrough in this film. The story has been told before and we've seen the characters in other movies. In a way 10 Years reminded me of an 80's John Hughes movie. The film really worked thanks to some great performances from the cast and an emotionally gripping script. I was really hooked with some of the stories and the way in which these characters interacted with each other. Despite the ten years that had gone by, these characters still remained the same deep down inside and some needed closure. Definitely worth seeing. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It doesn't delve too deep. Its a simple story about a high school reunion but it really nails it. The night before their high school reunion, a group of friends realize they still haven't quite grown up in some ways.

10 Years could be reliant on predictable jokes about high school cliques. However, it is surprisingly sincere about the awkward get-together of old high school chums at a 10 year reunion. Whenever certain jokes don't seem to work because they are too cringe-inducing, they are saved later on in the film when it is revealed that these scenes were actually all cringe and no joke, which casts a sad shadow on some of these poor, unfortunate souls.
