Format: DVD
The movie opens with a number of disconnected subplots: A rich man in a limo shows a disinterest in his son, a man (Boyd Holbrook) getting out of prison, a woman (Amy Smart) looking around a kitchen, a bail bondsman (Ethan Embry) screaming on the phone, and a cop (John Cena) on suspension. The rich man is kidnapped by Mexicans and as it turns out the other 4 are all 1/2 brothers/sister and their common estranged dad, who was worth millions, has just passed on. The catch is that in order to share $12 million, the four of them, who all hate each other, must work together in a family business for two years...without killing each other.

So what family business do these 4 open up? As it turns out one of the Mexicans who has kidnapped the millionaire is a bail skip for Ethan Embry. Ethan knows that this Mexican hung out at an unnamed strip club in Mexico with a girl named "Angela." So all they have to do is go find him. Amy (plays a small role) loves all of her brothers unconditionally because they are family. The brothers tolerate each other at best. What I thought was going to be an action flick was a good comedy-action-drama. My fears that a wrestler would stink it up were unwarranted as John Cena did an impressive job...for a wrestler. The dialouge was simple and amusing. The plot had enough action to hold my interest. The movie sets up for an interesting sequel. This is a good "B" action-drama film. 4 1/2 stars

No F-bombs or nudity. Minor sex scene.

Nina Cleary's (Amy Smart) father recently died with his last wish being to bring his three sons of suspended cop Sam (John Cena) & bail bondsman Leo (Ethan Embry) & ex-con Douglas (Boyd Holbrook) together so as a condition of his will, they will each collect an inheritance of $3 million if they were to run a family business together for two years. There is clear tension between Sam & Rico as they haven't seen each other in a decade while the youngest one in Douglas had never met any of his siblings previously. Meanwhile, a couple of hitmen take a corporation owner in Kyle Wills (Gregg Henry) hostage into Mexico with one of the kidnappers being identified as Leo's bailjumper named Edgar (Rio Alexander) who left him in debt, the brothers are convinced to go find him & get the reward money. In Mexico, they run into various issues such as getting information from Edgar's famous girlfriend who just happens to have an eye for Douglas, a drug lord named Verdugo (J.D. Garfield) who tells them to leave town or be killed, the kidnappers trying to kill them, meeting up with a woman named Theresa Trujillo (Lela Loren) who ends up having a common enemy with the boys, and the brothers trying to tolerate each other throughout the entire venture.

I will say that I've enjoyed this movie more than the recent WWE films releases as the attempts at comedy/action were good & not overdone. This was a different movie than Cena's previous two are he did more acting here than we've seen from his previous two action based movies ("The Marine" & "12 Rounds") while everyone else played their parts well so this is a movie I would watch more than a second time & recommend for a viewing.

I have to say that I find the majority (not all) of the WWE movies to be very entertaining and fun. "The Reunion" definitely falls into that category. Amy Smart is in it at the beginning and end only but we get Denise Chanian and I thought she was terrific. The plot 3 brothers get together to find a bail jumper and kidnap victim and they don't get along and don't know the younger brother. Much more to it but it would take forever to tell it. Boyd Holbrook as the youngest and unknown brother who is also a thief and really great with the ladies is sweet and innocently adorable. Ethan Embry as the middle brother, is a bail bondsman and is really angry at his older brother. Finally John Cena, the older suspended from the police force for excessive violence brother is terrific. All 3 brothers play their parts great and you love watching the bond grow. Bravo!

I never saw this movie in the theater, and have been curious. I finally gave in and purchased the DVD. It was better than I expected. The plot is rather simple, yet there was some decent acting that went with the movie.

I especially enjoyed the "Got you last" game that Cena and Embry played. It reminded me of my brothers and the relationship we had. It reminds me of the fun and turmoil that brothers have. Of course, we had a sister who was always trying to control her brothers.

Overall, it is a good movie with a good plot. Definitely not a wrestling movie.

A father has a last wish, while in his death bed. He requests that his daughter go on a mission to reunite with her 3 brothers. The only problem is that the entire family is dysfunctional and each family member has huge problems. To make matters worse, they cannot become wealthy, until they become friends first, because they hate each other. This film is funny, filled with drama, and lots of action. Worth the purchase. Acting Performance Excellent, Enjoyable and Entertaining from start to finish. Highly Recommended!

This is a funny movie!

It has a very Western-style theme to it, so if you like Westerns, you might like this one.
The DVD arrived in good shape and the movie played flawlessly.

It is certainly not an award-winning plot, but it is very entertaining. I bought it solely because Ethan Embry was in it, but was surprised to find that I genuinely enjoyed the story.

For those Amy Smart fans, her role in the movie is not nearly as big as I thought it would be. She is only in the beginning and the end.

I recommend watching this movie.
