Births, funerals, marriage, anniversaries and even annual vacations have all served as plot devices in the reunion film, a genre that usually finds middle-aged or older characters dealing with a crisis that is exacerbated by seeing old family and friends. And while "Ten Year" certainly isn't breaking new territory, producer and star Channing Tatum, along with writer/director Jamie Linden ("Dear John"), do take an interesting approach. Wisely not going far beyond their own age bracket, this film brings together a pretty solid ensemble cast of some of the best up-and-coming actors working right now for a tale that catches up with a gaggle of friends for a reunion -- you guessed it -- ten years after their graduation from high school. Taking on a bunch of characters as they leave their twenties is definitely a smart concept but instead of offering what could have been an honest look at contemporary soon-to-be thirtysomethings and the challenges, fears and triumphs they have endured, "Ten Year" delivers a mixed bag of CW plots that at worst are cliché and predictable, with a very few that do stand out.

Max Minghella Also In 'Ten Year' Ensemble Why isn't Ron Livingston a bigger name? Having delivered a slew of scene-stealing performances since "Swingers" (our personal favorite: Charlie Kaufman's obscene agent in "Adaptation"), the actor has been a near-constant presence on screens big and small, but somehow never made the step-up to Paul Rudd-style leading roles, despite being the lynchpin of the cult comedy "Office Space." Hell, even Nikki Finke seems to like him, and she hates everything.

Even before "The Social Network" hit theaters, its cast was given enormous career boosts -- almost everyone involved picked up sought-after roles, from Andrew Garfield and Rooney Mara using the immense buzz on the film to land the leads in "Spider-Man" and "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," to this week's news that Armie Hammer would join Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar."
