American Reunion-Review

The old gang is back in town for their high school reunion and bringing their “baggage” with them. Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs) and his wife, Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), are coping with the family life but it is negatively affecting their marriage. Oz (Chris Klein) has turned into a celebrity with his sports anchoring job and performance on a celebrity dance show but he longs to be with his high school sweetheart Heather (Mena Suvari) who is dating a doctor. Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicolas) works at home but is ashamed to also being a house husband and forced to watch reality TV with his wife. He runs into his ex, Vicky (Tara Reid) and old sparks begin to ignite. Stifler (Seann William Scott) is working in the corporate world but is being taunted by his boss for everything that he does and doesn’t do. Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) continues to be adventurous with other cultures but is hiding a dark secret. Finally, Jim’s dad (Eugene Levy) is still dealing with the loss of his wife-who died three years prior-and is seeking companionship. When the boys are back together, chaos begins and déjà vu happens as they try to fix and escape the damage.

Review:

Well, one thing is for sure, this movie never misses the classic scenes from the original America Pie with the original characters. There’s always the beginning where Jim gets caught performing during his private moment. Stifler, with his foul mouth and rude behavior, starts trouble and the boys try to get out of bad situations with each other’s support. Each character has to deal with their personal issues, mainly relationship related. This film has funny, shocking and gross moments and I enjoyed each one. I love that Jim always gets into the worst trouble than the rest and his clumsy attempt to get out of it. Although, I am not a fan of foul language and rude behavior, it is always entertaining to see what Stifler will do and say next.  I like that everyone was brought back from part one, including the Jessica and the Sherminator. Watching American Reunion was a good time capsule into the past of me being in high school when it came out and all round fun if you can handle the explicit language and scenes. All in all, I will see this film again but I hope there will not be another one.
