In 1999 the teen comedy American Pie was released and after several sequels and 13 years the whole cast is back again for the comedy American Reunion. In this film Jim, Kevin, Oz, Finch and Stifler return to East Great Falls Michigan for their 10 year high school reunion. At 31 years of age our 5 friends are still having issues with sex, relationships with women and now they have kids and jobs to add into the mix leading to similar problems they have had in the past. Just like American Pie this movie has the bad language, gross out humor and yes it still has plenty of funny moments. (As long as I don’t have to see the raunchy site gats I will be okay) Eugene Levy is hilarious with more of his father son talks and his role is expanded with a relationship involving stiflers mom played by Jennifer Coolidge. As expected this film has no real plot so with a running time of over 2 hours the juvenile humor gets a little old. (Maybe old is the word for me because the younger audience seemed to be having a good time) With 4 films at the theaters and 4 going straight to video I hope this is the last movie in this franchise. (What’s next American Retirement home) This film isn’t as good as the first but better then the rest and I will give it a C rating.
This movie has been given a R rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
