How old is too old?

I have recently been given a large amount of 35mm film, both colour and b&w.

The problem is that the expiry date on the rolls is 10 years old.

I'd love to use this film but if it produced unusable images then it would be a waste of time.

I will no doubt try one roll and see how it turns out but I'm interested to hear your opinions first.

I appreciate the fact that this site is dedicated to all things digital but I thought id ask as there is many experienced photographers here that may have started with film photography.
