      Nate W It was a surprisingly good and entertaining comedy. It really made me think about how revisiting the past isn't such a great idea. Harland Williams was priceless as always. And Michael Rosenbaum definitely one of his best performances. And a wonderfully directed film. I highly recommend watching this film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Kalinda M I love this movie and own it on a couple different platforms so I have access to it. This movie is comedic genius. The storyline of life after high school, regrets, love, friendships that last is absolutely and how you change/don't change is just told in a fresh new way that had me laughing. I recommend this movie for everyone. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/23 Full Review steve d One of the lest funny, most sophomoric films I have ever seen. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review a a Acting was pretty flat, but there were some good laughs. Worth a watch while available on Prime Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A great movie for nostalgic people everywhere! It truly grasps the concept of what really happens when you go home, find out who your friends are, and to have loved and lost. And it's hilarious. Michael never disappoints! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked it. It's one of the better High School Reunion movies out there.

      Nick Schager The Dissolve It's a film that feels like it's simply going through the motions-not to mention one whose ultimate critique of trying to relive the past is, in light of its mass of clichs, more than a tad disingenuous Rated: 1.0/5 Jan 31, 2014 Full Review Lou Lumenick New York Post [A] stale, schmaltzy and testosterone-drenched comedy. Rated: 1/4 Jan 17, 2014 Full Review Sheila O'Malley RogerEbert.com Nostalgia needs to be grounded in something real, something true, in order for it to have any resonance. Otherwise, you're just left with a formula that was tired 20 years ago. Rated: 1/4 Jan 17, 2014 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue There aren't many laughs along the way (unless you count fart jokes), nor is there any nostalgic value. Jan 31, 2014 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...the movie remains surprisingly watchable virtually from beginning to end. Rated: 3/4 Jan 19, 2014 Full Review Brian Orndorf Blu-ray.com Rosenbaum's intent seems pure enough, but his concepts for comedy and intimacy leave much to be desired, making the picture difficult to understand as it weaves through heartfelt confessions and fart jokes.
