Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"No one's problems inspire much interest, and the stuffy banality of the dialogue is multiplied by the lackluster surroundings."
‑ , New York Post
"This may not be quite the moment to solicit our sympathy for self-absorbed beneficiaries of Ivy League privilege."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"It's a wonder a group of experienced film professionals could not make "Reunion" look and sound the least bit proficient or even entertaining"
‑ Leo Goldsmith, indieWIRE
"The characters' narcissism spills over into the audience and rather than sympathize or empathize, your instinct is to protect yourself from them and their mid-life crises."
‑ John P. McCarthy, Boxoffice Magazine
"Provocative and thoughtful, a movie that can't help but make you take a long look at yourself."
‑ Marshall Fine, Hollywood & Fine
"A drearily pretentious, ultra-stagy exercise in middle-age self-loathing."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"As well versed in these characters and their milieu as Hruska may be, their dilemmas seem guessed-at rather than lived."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Time Out New York
"Filled with psychobabble, it comes across as a muddled melodrama about entitled elitists."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
"This reunion of old college friends gets a leaden treatment in what is effectively a one-act play posing as a film."
‑ Erica Abeel, Film Journal International
"There's not much reason to check out this shameless rip-off of The Big Chill, unless you've never seen the original, and you're inclined to watch a bunch of entitled Ivy Leaguers acting out like spoiled brats in the midst of a midlife crisis."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"A respectable B-list cast (Cynthia Stevenson, Jessica Hecht, Christopher McDonald) wades through a sludgy script that finds estranged friends reuniting decades after college."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Since no one in the cast is a household name, the series of confessions and critiques resemble nothing so much as actors' auditions."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Despite a terrific cast, it suffers from a lazy and dull screenplay that fails to generate any palpable drama or memorable characters."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"A Big Chill-ish enterprise whose serious intentions aren't enough to compensate for the two-dimensionality of its stock archetypes."
‑ Nick Schager, The Screengrab
"A soap opera disguised as a serious chamber drama in the tradition of Paddy Chayefsky."
‑ Simon Abrams, Slant Magazine
