Mike Binder places his well-acted comedy in the familiar turf of other "reunion" films (Return of Secaucus Seven, Big Chill), adding one element to the genre: Instead of indoor weekend, the regrouping is set in a beloved camp of the 1972 summer

I prefer this to The Big Chill because of Raimi, Arkin and Paxton. Throw them in a movie where they just sit down and watch a deer and I'd love it.
