10 Years is a comedy film that will follow the paths of a group of friends who meets up after 10 years for their high school reunion. The ensemble features Jake (played by Channing Tatum), his girlfriend Jess (played by Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and his old flame Mary (Rosario Dawson). Jake is so in love with Jess that he is ready to propose until he encounters Mary in the reunion. 10 Years also features Cully (Chris Pratt) another friend of Jake who married his high school cheerleader sweetheart, Sam (Ari Graynor). Cully wants to recreate his image from high school and decides to apologize to everyone he has ever bullied. But then too much booze brings him back to the Cully in high school. High school is truly a place where people graduate from but never leaves behind; 10 years will take us back to that place and relive most of our fun and crazy time. Let’s take a look at an early news for the movie: 10 Years
“10 Years: A Trip Back To High School And Unforgettable Memories
Like the conventions of reunions themselves, there’s nothing particularly new or deep about 10 Years. A decade after high school, a gaggle of uniformly attractive grads gather to drink a lot and learn a little about how life really isn’t like high school. Yet there’s a relaxed, unforced, melancholy sweetness and swing to this modest iteration of the Big Chill/Return of the Secaucus 7 formula, a pleasing directorial debut for screenwriter Jamie Linden (We Are Marshall).
Key to the pleasure is the accumulation of interesting rising young stars, each bursting with good health and great cheekbones, all apparently graduates of the No. 1 high school onForbes’ list of Most Genetically Fortunate Secondary Schools in the U.S. In his fifth movie released in this year of living busily, Channing Tatum plays a nice fellow who plans to propose to his girlfriend (real-life wife Jenna Dewan Tatum) but still has feelings for his high school sweetheart (Rosario Dawson). His costars, including Chris Pratt, Ari Graynor, and Justin Long, work with an easy give-and-take encouraged by the movie’s structure. Tatum may pull focus simply by virtue of his status as Cutie of the Moment, but the movie pays equal attention, for instance, to the famous musician (Oscar Isaac) as he reencounters his secret crush from all those years ago (Kate Mara) — and to the well-observed dynamic between the jocular, hard-partying former class bully (Pratt) and his designated driver of a wife (Graynor).
10 Years suggests that real adulthood is measured not by what one does in life (although, happily, there are no jobless boy slackers or girl pixies at this reunion) but by how present one is as a human being in the world today. In that regard, these alumni are nicely grown up. B+”
