Back in the Day

Ah, January VOD premieres by first time writer/directors ... why do I waste my time on thee?  This one's yet another 'gang-getting-back-together-for-a-high-school-reunion' assembly line film.  Unfortunately this 'comedy' is completely devoid of comedy ... and interesting characters ... and anything original to bring to the table to make it worth watching.  It's the definition of the word blah, and they clearly spent the entire budget on the 80's and 90's pop hits sprinkled throughout, which are the only things that add any life at all to this bore-fest.  It is available on VOD before it (supposedly) hits theaters on 1/17, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it ... even at home ... even if it were free.

Grade: D-

Who is this movie for?  No one.  Just crash a real high school reunion instead.
