Movie review of American Reunion
American Reunion - 6/10
Directed by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg
Cast - Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein, Seann William Scott
Over a decade has passed and the gang return to East Great Falls, Michigan, for the weekend. They will discover how their lives have developed as they gather for their high school reunion. How has life treated Michelle, Jim, Heather, Oz, Kevin, Vicky, Finch, Stifler, and Stifler's mom? In the summer of 1999, it was four boys on a quest to lose their virginity. Now Kara is a cute high school senior looking for the perfect guy to lose her virginity to.
Just had to watch this for nostalgic reasons.The American Pie series(just the four,didn't give 2 shits about the rest) is definitely one of the classic American comedies during the 90's.It was fun and somehow you do feel that certain characters is like you.Between me and my friends,we all had a Stiffler in us.(That does sound wrong)
It was kinda cool to do a reunion movie at this time cause any longer some of the actors will probably look way older than their character. Alysson Hannigan and Tara Reid look old and horrible especially Reid,she looks dark orange for some fucking weird reason.The scene stealer as usual for all the American Pie series (just the four,still don't give 2 shits about the rest) is none other than Sean William Scott as the infamous Steve Stiffler. Every time he comes on screen, you are bound to laugh your ass off.The shit he says is still funny as hell.The final cameo scene with Stiffler, I think lots of people wont get it.She was uncredited for this movie but her last line was the same line she used in an 80's movie she was famous for.That bit,I got to say was fucking cool.
Directing was ok.Acting and script was good.Lots of familiar faces from the previous installments will show up.Hopefully they do not make another one cause that might just suck ass.
It was pretty obvious that American Reunion was toned down but it kinda worked.The movie is to be watched purely for fun and perhaps nostalgic reasons.I did indeed had a fun time watching this.Worth watching on a weekend.
Kevin: Were we just as obnoxious as these kids back in the day?
Finch: Not us, our generation, we were more mature.
Steve Stifler: Check it out vagina shark.
[goes under water, girls scream]
Finch: I take that back.
Steve Stifler: Last time I did this cell phones didn't exist.
Jim's Dad: Why is it called Vag? Is it only half a vagina?
