With all the bad review I didn't go into it with great expectations. The film is actually a lot better than people are saying and probably as good as the second film. Jim and Michelle seem to be having marital problems on the eve of their High School reunion. The director then shows what is up with the rest of the gang. Oz is a sports announcer, Kevin is married to a woman who controls him and Stifler is working for a real obnoxious boss as a temp.
Jim and Michelle agree to go to the reunion with the understanding they will try to make together time to patch things up. Things are different these days. Jim's father is a widower who hints at having done some things like massage parlors and such but has not yet started to date. Oz runs into his own girlfriend and is thrown because she is just like him in personality but they both are dating people that they have nothing in common with.
Jim used to work as a babysitter and the girl he had taken care of is now 18 and has the hots for him. Kevin also runs into his old girlfriend and seems that he still has some feelings for her even though he is married. Finch shows up on a motorcycle and tells the gang that he has been a world travelller.
The movie is loaded with the usual American Pie antics centered around masterbation, accidents to genitals and chasing MILFs. Just about everyone who was in the first two films makes an appearance including the MILF guys, the Shermanator, and Nadia.
I don't want to give away the movie but let's say that in this one Stifler finally gets back a Finch and Michelle's flute makes an appearance. Just about everyone knows that there are some hilarious scenes with Jim's Dad and Stifler's mom. I liked it and wouldn't mind if another sequel is in the works.
One of the most difficult film genres for me to review would have to be comedies. Because a) much of it relies on someone’s sense of humor b) how many times I laughed c) is there a point to all of it?. Well, the “American Pie” franchise have always been on my “must watch” list ever since the first film which was a sincere portrayal of raging teenage hormones. The second film was more about dwelling on what could have been and finding something different. “American … more
It has often been said that you cannot turn back the hands of time, but thankfully Hollywood is a place where magical things happen. In the case of the gang from American Pie and the creative talents of writer directors Jon Hurwitz Hayden Schlossberg, the gang is back, better than ever, for another slice if pie. Hurwitz and Schlossberg are the creative team behind the ” Harold and Kumar” series and have been entrusted by Universal to carry on the American Pie series which had recently … more
AMERICAN REUNION Written and Directed by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg Starring Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan and Seann William Scott I never went to my high school reunion. It wasn’t because I was so insanely popular in high school that I didn’t need to belittle myself by making an appearance. Nor was I such an incredible outcast that I would be too afraid to show my face. I was simply sick the night it was happening. One could suggest this was psychosomatic but regardless, … more
By Joan Alperin Schwartz The film 'American Pie' was and is a classic. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, 'American Pie' is about four guys, from East Great Falls Michigan, that are on a quest...to lose their virginity before they graduate high school. I can still remember sitting in the theatre LMAO watching the escapades of these 17 year olds desperately … more
Star Rating: What I appreciate about the American Pie films is that, beneath the raunchiness and juvenile slapstick humor, there rests a kernel of truth. American Reunion continues in that tradition. Although it utilizes the kind of crude sexual humor that I don’t find particularly funny, there is evident a compelling examination of friendship, love, and the general ups and downs of relationships at an adult life stage. In this case, that would be thirteen … more
