Another thing "American Pie" did was make stars out of Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth, Tara Reid and Seann William Scott. All of them rose to quick fame and some of them, Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother), have managed to hang onto that fame or increase it. Some of them have fallen right off the map, so it was a perfect time for a sequel and a return of the old cast. They are all back and sure, they all needed career boosts, but they also came back for good reason. The script for "American Reunion" is better and the audience that came to the original movie grew to love the characters.
There are jokes that are rehashed from the original and the raunchy nature of the films is completely intact, but more importantly the writers remembered the truth and honesty that pushed "American Pie" over the hump. Of course the laughs were important as well.
The best part about "American Reunion" is that they gave veteran actor and SCTV alum, Eugene Levy (Splash, Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show), a big part in this one.Read more ›
If you liked American Pie and it's first sequels (and their raunch level), you will really enjoy this great return from the original cast.
The Class of 1999 gets together for their 13th year reunion (really? 13th? well, that's not going to spoil the rest of the movie) and we get to catch up with what life after high school is like for everyone. For the most part, everyone's personalities are the same, and the writers and actors did a great job of projecting those characters into adulthood. Although projecting an older Stifler still doesn't seem like "adulthood..."
I don't want to give away any of the jokes, but this was a really funny movie.... funnier than I expected, to be honest. And not only will the audience be consistently laughing out loud, but viewers will also feel an unexpected nostalgia in watching.
As I said, I did expect it to be funny, but this movie is MUCH better than I expected.
As with other crude comedies, this will probably play slightly better in the theaters, because of audience reactions, but this is a wonderful return from the cast, and is very well written and directed.
Go see this movie!
I was expecting way more off color jokes, but this movie was SURPRISINGLY deep to me. If you are a warm blooded male, you can remember a time when chasing women was a main reason for living at one point...which has pretty much been the backbone of the American Trilogy...Hey, Stiffler and Finch, were all about Cadence in "American Wedding" despite Jim and Michelle tying the note being the big deal in that film. But here the tone is DRASTICALLY changed. The boys are still themselves, but older. New challenges arise, as they do with any grown man who is heading into adulthood and away from the care-free days of being a teenager or young adult in their early 20's.
Also, Jim's mom being dead (I hope I didn't spoil this, but I assume we all saw the previews) and the challenges faced by Jim's father, Noah, in moving on also struck a cord with me ( I lost my mother this year) and gave this film a "REAL" feeling.Read more ›

It was funny and kept with the same humor as the previous movies.Published 17 days ago by Amazon Customer
Way better than it is given credit for. Aside from Oz, which was disappointing, and Stifler, which is an important theme of the series, everyone has actually evolved. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John Noble
