A refreshing take on the high school dramedy. Linden utilizes all the characters to have significant screen time each with a story that somehow ties together. I like how this is a high school movie but it's told as a reunion. Now, not all the actors are on an even par, and some of the stories aren't as poignant (especially for some of the bigger name actors I thought could have done more), but the whole of the parts justifies the end. You're left feeling just as good as the characters at the end of the movie. Now my sister didn't quite feel the same connection to this movie and I believe it's relative to the timeline of when you got out of school. I'm closer to my 10 year reunion than she is therefore I was comfortable watching it.

How this slipped through the cracks I will never know. Especially considering it is the year of Channing Tatum and he (almost) headlines this nicely paced and very funny reunion flick. The cast may make you want to associate it with something like Valentine's Day or New Year's Eve but this is not a contrived piece of schlock only interested in name dropping this is a well rounded story with several well developed characters. It is a brisk experience, but it is fun to meet these people at the same time they are catching up with one another. Whether it be Chris Pratt's Culley who was a jerk in high school and spends his night trying to make up for it while his wife Sam (Ari Graynor) deals with his drunken state that gives an underlying look at their much advanced relationship as compared to their classmates. Their is a somewhat typical situation created between Justin Long and Max Minghella's character as they chase the life of the party from high school and discover everyone has their problems. I was especially hoping for a better story arc for Justin Long's character as I always hoped that guy would break out a la Jason Segel or Seth Rogen. Still, there is plenty to love here including a lovely written piece between Oscar Isaac's Reeves (a famous pop star) and Kate Mara's Elise (a realtor in a relationship going nowhere) as they bring things full circle with one another. The main focus comes back around to Tatum and his high school love Mary (Rosario Dawson). While each have grown up and become respectable adults with Tatum's Jake ready to propose to longtime girlfriend Jess (real-life wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and she married to a straight laced Ron Livingston. Their past goes more than just naive deep and in this writer/ director Jamie Linden creates a lovely set of consequences that are worked through is a refreshingly honest and mature way.
