The movie American Reunion fits perfectly into the American Pie family with its unpredictability, laughable scenarios and raunchy comedy.
The boys come back to East Great Falls, Michigan for their Class of 1999 reunion; it’s interesting to see who they have all become. Jim (Jason Biggs) and his wife Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are facing a sexual rut. Oz (Chris Klein) is a famous TV sportscaster who, thanks to his model girlfriend, went on a celebrity dance show resulting in humiliation. Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) is in a loving marriage that keeps him watching Real Housewives and Bachelorette marathons. Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) is a lone world traveler. Lastly, Stifler (Seann William Scott) is immature as ever and stuck in a crummy temp job under a jerky business executive.
In the usual American Pie fashion, the boys attend some wild parties with outrageous outcomes such as Jim’s dad and Stifler’s mom meeting for the first time in over thirteen years. The film makes many references to prior movies that are only funny if the viewer has previous knowledge of the series.
Nevertheless, the movie provides laughter at crude scenarios and sexual references that qualify the movie to be R rated. The guys stay true to their characters that they have upheld throughout the previous three movies. The plot is not anything new, which is a bad quality based on the majority opinion, but in another light it is a characteristic that ensures that true American Pie fans will enjoy the final addition to the series.
American Reunion never has a slow, boring moment: the gang is always in an entertaining situation that only American Pie writers could think of.
