Save the best piece for last.
In the comedy American Reunion, all the American Pie characters we met a little more than a decade ago are returning to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn’t and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim and Michelle married while Kevin and Vicky said goodbye. Oz and Heather grew apart, but Finch still longs for Stifler’s mom. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about - and get inspired by - the hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend.
Reunions are normally depressing affairs - meeting old flames who are now obese, friends embarking in a game of oneupmanship to see who has had the more successful life post-school whilst the only common ground you now share is reminiscing about the good old days. American Reunion is equally depressing but mainly because it feels like a cynical cash-in created purely to give the stars a nice easy pay day, and some need it more than others. The first American Pie was decent enough but the subsequent sequels were an obvious case of diminishing returns and this, the third official sequel, continues the downward spiral.
Once again the only reason to bother watching the film is Seann William Scott’s Stifler…
Seeing an American Pie film in 2012, I can't really be mad or surprised or upset when it turns out to be torture to sit through. But here's some stray observations:
After 4 film appearances, all we still know about Jim is that he masturbates a lot and gets punished for it. Rick Santorum would approve. After this amount of public sexual humiliation, you'd think he would have learned to be honest the moment he becomes trapped in a situation, but no. I suppose if this character was even remotely self-aware he would have committed suicide by now and we would not have a franchise.
The women of this series could not matter less. Someone though decided Mena Suvari's forehead…
Sing along everyone! You know the tune!
A long, long time ago
I can still remember how that movie used to make me smile
And, I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people glance, and...
Maybe they'd be happy for a while
But, Reunion made me shiver with every word it delivers
Bad news on the movie screen – Even with all the boobies seen
I can't remember if I cried when I saw and wondered if they tried
Something touched me deep inside the day this series died
So, don’t try try more American Pie
Eyebrow heavy Eugene Levy, tell this series good-bye
Them good ol' boys were telling jokes with no wry, singing...
Please God don’t make a part five
Please God don’t make a part five
So I liked this...fuck you.
Though what has happened to Tara Reid? Her mouth doesn't move when she speaks??
Being a fan of the original trilogy, and the original American Pie being easily one of my favorite high school films, I couldn't have asked for a better revisitation for these characters I've come to love so much. Seeing the entire original cast coming back together definitely gave me lots of nostalgia, and it's really hard to think, it had been nearly ten years since we've seen these actors on screen together.
The great chemistry between the five main actors is all still there, these guys all really feel like great friends, and the entire gang is as loveable as ever. Sean William Scott, Eddie Kaye Thomas, and Eugene Levy once again all steal the show as Stifler, Finch, and…
This is pretty terrible.
It is occasionally entertaining to have these characters back In our lives again. But actually it turns out they are obnouxious dicks.
Stiffler is still fucking funny however.
great to see the original gang back together, better then the various spin-offs. eugene levy steals the show
FILM #12 OF THE DECEMBER CHALLENGE
American Reunion is the best American Pie film since the original. It's absolutely hilarious and heartfelt. The performances are great. The two people who I thought stole the show in the movie were Sean William Scott as Stifler and Eugene Levy as Jim's dad. Both of them were hilarious. The supporting cast was really good as well. I loved all of the cameos and the references to the other films in the American Pie franchise. Overall, American Reunion is a very worthy addition to one of my favourite comedy franchises.
I actually liked this better than "American Wedding." This series is largely inoffensive but kinda interesting as a form of beer-belching sociology. God Bless America.
This is a pretty lousy film, but it gets an extra star for nostalgia sake. It was fun to be back with this group, and the jokes are surprisingly not as stale as you would expect (although some of the actors are more stale than expected).
An amusing film that shows us nothing new. Unless you count "new boobs." A pointless sequel but I suppose it has it's place. The one thing I do appreciate about these movies is that they wrap up everything. No loose ends are ever left undone. If you liked the first movie you will probably enjoy this.
si bien el interes era ver como habian envejecido los protagosnitas iniciales de la saga se queda en eso. las gracias de sexo en tios maduros ya no cuela salvo alguna excepcion. tipicos cliches de gente que madura demasiado y gente madura que se queda en la adolescencia.
The actual worst thing.
"American Pie" in 2012... It's a good one! But you have to know the first three films to get all the gags. With this knowledge, it's really fun. I really enjoy watching the characters not really growing up... Only getting older. The story is okay for a film like this.
But you won't have fun without knowing the characters.
Great to see all the stars together again and Sean William Scott as Stiffler is great as usual. Nothing new and or exciting here probably time to stick a fork in this film series and call it quits. If they have to do another one of these I would just concentrate on the Stifler character.
