A modest "Big Chill Meets Dancer Texas"
10 August 2002 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

Mitch is getting married to the rich girl in town and his four boyhood chums are coming in for the wedding. One has become a dentist and settled down into a married life in town. One has gone away to college and college football career and is coming home to come out to his buddies. Another has become a meek accountant and is still living at home with his mother and spends his evenings watching De Niro movies. Another has been in L.A. trying to be a deal maker but is coming home $30,000 in debt and finds that the girl he left behind has a kid.

Mitch has gone to work for his fiancé's father and is unsure whether his fiancé is marrying him or just acquiring him as the last thing she needs to complete the dream home she's assembling.

As you would expect this movie raises the questions and give each of the guys a chance to resolve, or at least address his issues. The movie is well constructed and strikes all the right chords but never seems to rise above the standard formula. The movie is worth seeing but don't expect it to change your life.
