This is handy for accessing private methods but remember that things are normally private for a reason! Unit Testing is one (debatable) use case for this.

Example:
<?php
class Foo {
  private function
myPrivateMethod() {
    return
7;
  }
}

$method = new ReflectionMethod('Foo', 'myPrivateMethod');
$method->setAccessible(true);

echo
$method->invoke(new Foo);
// echos "7"
?>

This works nicely with PHPUnit: http://php.net/manual/en/reflectionmethod.setaccessible.php
