We gave it an B-

Jack Black stars as Dan, a onetime teenage loser and current adult creep who has a simple goal: Get cool guy Oliver (James Marsden) to show up to the high school reunion he’s organizing. The apparently ageless Marsden makes for a dependable straight man opposite Black’s signature mania, but when the movie resolves the main conflict half an hour in, The D Train spins its wheels with forced plot devices. Yet the film never completely derails, thanks to the chemistry between the two leads, which goes beyond a standard bromance. B–
