a really good 'buddy' flick, with a point to make
13 November 2001 | by (nashville, tn) – See all my reviews

This movie, about five guys who are getting together after a long absence in order to be at the wedding of the second one to do so, develops five different characters who have been friends from a ritzy section of Dallas since grammar school. They are so different that, as one of them says, "are we friends, or are we just coasting on history?" By the end of the movie, each learns something important about his friends, and something important about himself, and a lot about friendship. The only woman who is really featured, the intended bride, also learns some things, about herself and about her future husband. An excellent character study, without much of a plot (rather the kind of movie Roger Ebert likes; why didn't he review it?), it reveals much about upper middle class males. If you fit, you'll probably like it. Three and a half stars, out of four, from me.
