Being an American Pie fan since the beginning, I was excited about American Reunion. The boys are back for another crazy, sexual, and over- the-top adventure.Since the last film in 2003, I thought they wouldn't be able to perform as well together. But from start to finish, they played their roles as if they never left. This movie will definitely keep you laughing, especially if you are a long time fan. Not to mention Jim's dad finally got the screen time he deserved. Now, I don't think it was as good as it could have been. The plot, as mentioned in other reviews, was plain. But <more>
all in all, It was an amazing sequel to the series. Better than the first? I don't think so. But as good as the first? YES!I do recommend watching the last three American Pie movies before going to see this. You will understand the movie much clearer, and not to mention the little surprise s will have you rolling on the floor laughing.Cons: It wasn't dirty enough. The jokes were hysterical, but I wanted more! I wanted more F bombs, sex jokes, and pie humping! But I guess that is what the previous Pie films were for ; If you are a fan, you will enjoy this film. You will NOT be disappointed.10/10 stars
American Reunion Screening Review (by ironman2008)
I was lucky enough to catch an advance screening last night at the Mall of America in Minnesota. This movie will not disappoint anyone who is a fan of the original movies or the characters. It has all of the gross-out humor, sexual tension, and most importantly the heart. It doesn't break in any new ground, but gives great closure to all of the characters. The laughs also are spread out well from start until during the credits. In face, I think the first 3 minutes was the funniest I've ever seen in a movie. Even my wife who is just a casual fan laughed more at this movie than any <more>
I saw an advance screening of American Reunion in Chicago tonight. Sean WIlliam Scott and Jason Biggs both attended and spoke with the audience before the movie and were very grateful and genuine about the movie. And were very funny too. This was the perfect way to end the series. And I hope they do end it here, because it was perfect. NOT that I wouldn't see American Old Folks Home, but let's not let it get to that. All the characters were just as great as they were in the first 2 films. Oz, Kevin, Finch, Jim, and of course the man who comes with most of the laughs Stifler are all <more>
back. As well as pretty much every single speaking roll from the original movie. I will say this is as good if not better than the original. The story is great and very realistic to what most of us are going through today. We hate our jobs, we're married or in some kind of middle aged rut. We still just want to be the kids we were in high school but it's hard because as much as we don't like to admit it we have all grown up. Never fear though with all the boring life stuff, the gang is all back and come with many many fun moments and get themselves into quite a few pickles. I'd say as many as the first 2 movies combined. But it doesn't feel forced or like they threw it in the movie just because they felt they had to. Everything flowed naturally and kept me and the entire audience laughing from beginning till the credits rolled. All of the characters end up in a great place at the end, and I can thoroughly say that this will be a classic. No doubt about it. Ton of laughs, it had heart, makes you feel like you can relate to these guys more than ever. I've grown up with these guys and we all have friends like this. I was sad it ended so soon, even though it was over 2 hours. It was still sad to see the guys go one last time. Overall American Reunion was on par if not better than the original. The original will always be a classic in our eyes, but this will be a close second.To the next step10/10
Caught a preview screening of this movie tonight in NYC. I am 26 years old now, so I was in 8th grade when the original came out.Thought the first two were awesome but thought the third noticeably drifted away from what made the first two special. A little too much Stifler .For American Pie 4, when I saw the preview I was excited to see them all back together, but I didn't know what to expect. I know Hollywood loves destroying sequels and I didn't know how they were going to create a story line out of characters that really haven't been together in forever.Fear not. I though this <more>
movie was almost as good as the original. Two hours of non-stop cracking-up, but none of it was forced. They brought back all the characters, but in a way that didn't seem thrown together or in-genuine. It was about 2 hours and 15 minutes long, but not once did I think this was dragging. They did a nice job explaining where everyone has been and it didn't really seem awkward.The best part of it is, the story is about all 5 of the original guys, and their relationship with women and sex at their current juncture 31 years old . Each have their own issues too married, have kids, hate their jobs, hate their lifestyle, etc. and the movie is kind of about them all resolving their that over the course of a reunion weekend. It's the American Pie which is most similar too the first one. All the old couples from high-school Oz/Heather, Kevin/Vicky, Jim/Michelle re-hash their past feelings.Another great thing about the film is that Stifler's character is written back in the style of American Pie 1 and 2, which I loved. His part is not over bearing like the Wedding. Kevin, Finch and Oz play much bigger roles than they did they did in the third.There a couple new characters but none of them are annoying or take up too much of the story, all those parts are well cast. Jim's Dad and Stifler's Mom are hilarious on screen together. Jim's Dad is the funniest he has ever been- but again- not in an over the top way. All in all, it's a well-written, well-rounded film with some good plot twists. Tons of references too the old films. Literally, all of the obscure characters from the first two make an appearance at some point.BOTTOM LINE: 9/10. If you are a fan of the American Pie films especially 1 & 2 your going to LOVE this movie. Worth the $.
One of the best movies out of the better movies - you either love or hate it (by loliveronline)
Im 28 years old and watched the first one ofc at a younger age. I live in Sweden and one of my big "issues" today is the picture of my past, present and future.Did I do enough? should I do more? Its a depression that comes and goes from day to day.I didn't expect much of this movie tbh, late at night, I downloaded it as many others do today and started watching it.The other movies are all decent movies, fun to watch and brings a lot to the viewers while still being a unique youth film.This one tho has it all, and I'm ready to say its the best one in the series and one of the <more>
best movies so far beyond 2010.It touches on very sensitive subjects and this movie actually is a lot deeper than many might think it is. If I would start typing down the important parts of the movies I would have to spend my entire night here.There isn't rly much more to say about the movie tbh, you have to watch it for yourself, all-tho I think this movie is the kind of movie you either hate or love if you was growing up with American pie.A lot of people hate this movie and are shocked by the rating it has here on IMDbI think it should have a 8.5 at least.Hey I know it sounds stupid, I never ever believed that I would post something on IMDb about a American pie movie, but seriously, if your in same situation as me I think you will love this movie.It makes you both sad and happy at the same time.This is one of the best movies out of the "better" movies that has ever been made.certainly worth a spot in the top 250.
So fat the best one in the series (by antoniomagallon90)
American Reunion takes place ten years after American Wedding. Jim Jason Biggs and Michelle Alyson Hannigan have been married for ten years. They have a two year old kid. Kevin Myers Thomas Ian Nicholas is also married and is an architect. Oz Chris Klein is a sportscaster for ESPN and was a contestant on a dancing reality show it's another version of Dancing With the Stars . Paul Eddie Kaye Tomas is now a traveler and often goes to South America. Stifler Seann William Scott works in an office, but stills have attitude problems. Together these groups of friends are going to <more>
there high school reunion and are going to have some fun for one weekend, if nothing goes wrong that is. Usually sequels aren't as good as the original due to lack of presentation and rarely do they succeed. American Reunion is one of those rare sequels that work; in fact it is probably the best one in the entire series. For those who grew up watching the series, all of the old crew is back. Stifler is still the same man as before, while everybody else has grown up and that's the good way to introduce the characters that we love. My favorite part about the film is that it shows old school vs. new school generation. Why is that? Because we can relate to that in real life and sometimes, for lack of a better word, it's funny when you think about it. American Reunion is hilarious from the beginning to the end. The sex and drugs humor are back. One thing that is new is how much they try to make it serious than the previous installment and strangely enough it works. How unique is that? For those who never seen any of the American Pie Series I don't recommend the spin-offs series you may have a hard time trying to understand the characters personality and the style of the film. For instance there are lots of sex jokes, which the series is known for. Most of the fans will laugh at the jokes but I highly doubt that the newcomers will. So I were you, I would go and watch the whole series in order to understand the structure of the film. Fans of the series will not be disappointed. Newcomers might have some hard time understanding why audiences are laughing at the crude humor. If you want to get some good laughs, you definitely need to check this film out
Going to keep this short, because it's my first review, and I don't wamt to bore people.Saw an early screening today in Amsterdam, and I was really excited because the trailer promised a lot. And you know what? It was amazing!Simply because they made it as good as the original and the second movie. I liked the first two but I personally think that the third one drifted away from the original theme a bit I also liked how they made Stifler return to his original state. Crazy as always, doing things the way he wants to do. The other thing that I found good was that they briefly showed <more>
what everyone does after high school and at what position they are at the moment.All in all, great film what else could you expect from these guys , I'd say go see it, definitely worth your time!
A reunion I was so glad to attend! (by DJRMewzique)
There is really not much to say here except that the return of Stifler and his posse....and just about every single memorable character from the first three films...are welcomed back with open arms in "American Reunion." After three absolutely sensational, immature-but-awesome comedies about sex, masturbation and fart jokes somewhat ignoring the somewhat mediocre offshoots "Band Camp," "The Naked Mile," "Beta House" and "The Look of Love" , I really did not know if, over a decade later, with all the actors and characters older, they could <more>
recapture the crude magic that made the first three instalments such comedy classic.Guess what? They did.It is now thirteen years later and the crew converge upon their high school, all grown up now, for their, you guessed it, high school reunion. And yes, the film relies heavily on nostalgia and clichés about friends, sex and lost love, but the writing here is so great, it really doesn't matter. The film continues the series' reputation of being politically incorrect and walking the line of taste while still managing to present it all in a way that makes the audience laugh out loud despite themselves. All the main characters returned, played by all the original actors including Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Sean William Scott, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas and Eddie Kaye Thomas. Jennifer Coolidge is still as much a MILF as Stifler's mom while Eugene Levy, the only one to appear in ever single incarnation of these films, continues his signature role of Jim's dad. Even Tara Reid and Mena Suvari are back in the mix.Loads of ridiculous situations, a disgusting hijink and fantastically hilarious comedy ensues as the gang gets back together, having aged stupendously Klein's body has gotten even more porn-worthy and making this long-awaited return well worth the time and effort. And if this film makes the box office it deserves, we may just get invited back to the party one more time. And I'll be there with bells on.
Couldn't have asked for a better reunion! (by travsta_92)
I would have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this film from beginning to end. Now, of course this is a bias opinion coming from an immense fan of the series. Although I just couldn't help but be impressed with how well the reunion turned out and here is exactly why I think this:It was a very great move to have professional writers that were already passionate fans of the series get on board for the reunion. It perfectly depicts the concept of growing up and the realization of where their lives have become at the age of 30. There are a lot of sequels these days that end up just trying to <more>
rehash what the original possessed but offering nothing further. Thus I was very pleased that American Reunion presented as a tremendous movie in it's own right whilst having everything that made the first 2 movies lovable and providing a lot of interesting story lines that make plenty of room for great jokes and heart felt moments.All in all I highly recommend anyone watch the movie. I understand that some people have different opinions and have certain boundaries when it comes to gross-out humor but I definitely think the heart felt moments certainly outweigh the rest while still being wildly hilarious and clever. It is a brilliant nostalgic throwback that provides everything that you would have wanted as a fan of the franchise.
