American Reunion Movie Review




American Reunion is surprising in that it was still funny, but more grownup than it’s predecessors. The humour isn’t as raunchy and the film is low in the nudity department (although you do get some peen and sweet booblage), but enough laughs were present to make this a worthwhile watch. Read on for the quick review…

Short nitty-gritty plot description from IMDb is as follows: Jim, Michelle, Stifler, and their friends reunite in East Great Falls, Michigan for their high school reunion.

In honour of my wife having her high school reunion this weekend (an event that turned up 10 people out of 200), we decided to watch American Reunion.  I was expecting the film to throw a bunch of extreme scenarios with tons of nudity and uncomfortable situations (don’t get me wrong, there are still some raunchy scenes that I’m sure you’ll love), but colour me surprised when I was presented with a grown up sequel. I have to give props to the film makers in maturing the series, along with it’s maturing cast. Everyone returns in this sequel, even Chris Klein who was absent in American Wedding, kudos to the writers in acknowledging his absence with a quick line. Tara Reid graces us with her presence, time has not been kind. I have to say Seann William Scott was the highlight of the film, with his returning portrayal as Stifler. You can tell he was having fun being the guy you love to hate.

If you’ve seen the previous films in the American Pie series, not counting the awful American Pie Presents: films, you’ll greatly enjoy the newest entry. Just know, that they seem to have taken a more mature route in their comedy than previous entries. Even still, I laughed out loud enough that I was happy with the film. I was really only let down with the toned back nudity. I demand more nudity!

I think American Reunion was a sham! 11 people showed up to my reunion, and this "13 year" reunion had everyone in attendance! I smell some BS, or movie magic!

(But it was still funny. ;))

Don't you know that 13 year reunions are now all the rage? I mean really, who goes to 10 year reunions anymore? Hahaha!

On the plus side, I think we've held up much better since high school than the characters in this film! Although I could just be fooling myself… Maybe the next 3 years will be rough on us though! Haha! And to be fair, the actors were probably mostly 25 or older playing 18 year olds in the original…

Apparently no one goes to their 10 year reunion, I've learned that!

Hey, I thought they looked pretty good! Chris Klein definitely looks better now than he did when the movie first opened. 😉

Yeah, but he now has the receding hairline! Haha! Jason Biggs looked pretty much identical to how he did in the first American Pie!

And we look hot without hair, makeup, and wardrobe stylists… Haha!
