The journey has come to an end, and despite four atrocious VOD spinoffs, American Reunion manages to end the franchise with a flourish. The gang is back together for one last hurrah, and the hijinks are just as hilarious as ever.
My rapid-fire thoughts:
The American Pie franchise needed American Reunion. I'm usually not a huge proponent of remakes or sequels, but it was appropriate here. Revisiting the original players hits the right nostalgic notes, and it adequately serves as a palate cleanser for the tragic missteps since American Wedding. Even better, there is an actual plot, character development, and relatable themes. I dare say, this is an actual movie.
Speaking of themes, I found this film far more relatable…
