This review is from: 10 Years [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a good film, with a bit of a mediocre start (after watching for about half an hour I was about to give up, but I am glad I watched it to the end). "10 years" is a sweet collective comedy about a high school reunion, which follows a group of school friends (some married, some heart-broken, some high-flying, some who got fat). Although Channing Tatum graces the cover of the case and, I understand, is supposed to be one of the main attractions of the film (he also co-produces), "10 years" has so many more great artists involved, inclining hilarious Chris Pratt (who never fails to make a fool of himself), Justin Long and Max Minghella et al. The cast blends organically and you really feel as if they knew each other for decades. I watched the extras and was surprised to see that the actors did not really follow the script word for word but improvised as the film was progressing, which just adds to the natural laughs and some of the good-hearted funny sequences.
But the film is not just a simple comedy, it also has a few emotional scenes and side-lines. Kate Mara and Oscar Issac (playing high school oddballs who never got together) provide one of the best sub-stories of the film. A pleasure to watch. A pleasure to listen [to Oscar Issac sing].
The film might feel a bit long, but all in all, I really enjoyed it. Not for everybody, and not for somebody who would wait to see Channing Tatum naked torso.
