American Reunion: Review










This direct sequel to the hit American Pie movies, American Reunion again follows Jim (Jason Biggs),  Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) and the rest of the usual suspects as they are at another milestone in their lives. Their 10 year high school reunion.

Right from the very beginning of the movie you expect the usual embarressment scene that has become common place for the AP movies and it pretty much set up the movie. At this point everyone has gotten older, spread apart and developed lives of their own. That’s when they find out about their reunion coming up. They use that as an excuse to have one last hurrah and of course hilarity ensuses (when does it not?). I really liked this movie more than I wanted to. Mainly because the whole original cast was back I think. Yes the jokes were pretty much the same jokes that have been told over and over throughout the AP movies but it may have been just a nostalgic factor that kind of took it back to the very first film. Like all of the previous films (excluding the direct to video ones) they all have some life lessons included and this one was no different. People change, marriage is work and its always important to keep the people important to you close. I don’t know if they will make another AP movie or not (it probably wouldn’t be a good idea if they did) but this one does feel like it gives a sense of closure and comes full circle with all the characters involved. All in all it was an entertaining movie with lots of raunchy adult humor that had the right idea but just didn’t deliver completely or bring anything new to the table. If you are a fan of the previous films then you’ll enjoy this for sure.
