10 Years is an ensemble comedy/drama about a group of high school classmates who get together for their 10 year reunion to discover that some things never change, while others change completely.

Jake (Channing Tatum), Marty (Justin Long), AJ (Max Minghella) and Cully (Chris Pratt) were pals in high school and they all have separate lives now, but are reuniting at Cullyís house before their 10 year reunion. Cully is now married to high school sweetheart and former cheerleader Sam (Ari Graynor) and has a few rug rats running around, but still seems to be the same jerk he was in high school, only 10 years older. He has vowed to Sam that he will make amends at the reunion to all those he tortured in school, while Sam just wants to cut loose a little and is tired of playing "mommy" all the time. Meanwhile, high school friends/rivals Marty and AJ start discussing their lives, with Marty living the high life in New York and working in publishing and AJ married to a hotshot doctor. Jake shows up with his longtime girlfriend Jess (and real-life wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum), but finds himself looking around for high school girlfriend Mary (Rosario Dawson), who shows up with her stuffy husband, Paul (Ron Livingston). Jake and Mary clearly have some unresolved issues and Jess and Paul will need to give them their space to clear the air.

Marty spots Anna (Lynn Collins), his dream girl from high school, and she is looking hotter than ever. However, with AJ as his wingman, he is sure to fail. Reeves (Oscar Isaac) has become a famous singer, but all he wants to do is spend time with the quietest girl from high school, Elise (Kate Mara). Scott (Scott Porter) has been living in Japan for several years and has returned with his girlfriend, Suki (Eiko Nijo). He and pal Andre (Anthony Mackie) canít resist ribbing old friend Garrity (Brian Geraghty) about his past affinity for all things in the rap culture, which greatly disturbs his wife, Olivia, although she eventually gains a brand new appreciation for her husband.

As the evening progresses and the party moves from the reunion to the favorite local watering hole, the attendees get even more drunk and truths begin to surface. Everyone starts to realize that even though there is still a small part of their high school persona left, theyíve all moved on and become different people, but they are still able to connect with one another.

Overall, I wasnít a big fan of 10 Years. It felt like it was trying to be Canít Hardly Wait, just with an older set of players, but it missed the mark. There were some amusing moments, such as when a completely wasted Cully sings his drunken karaoke rendition of "The Lady in Red" and replaces it with "The Asian in Beige" directed to a classmate he used to torture on a regular basis. It was an awkward and pretty funny scene, but overall, the movie just fell flat for me. The acting wasnít bad or anything, it just didnít appeal to me, personally. Special features consist of a handful of deleted scenes and thatís it.

In general, I canít necessarily recommend 10 Years unless you are a big fan of the group of actors. It was just fairly boring. If you want to see this group of actors together, you might consider it as a rental, but I wouldnít see a need to purchase it.
