Jim (Jason Biggs), Stifler (Seann William Scott) and their former classmates from East Great Falls learn what has and hasn't changed when they gather for their high-school reunion.
" Yes, American Reunion is a juvenile outing. They steal jet skis and defecate in beer coolers. They cheat on their girlfriends and lie to their best friends. But what did you expect? "
" Bad enough that the film is smutty and that most of the female characters are either bores or bitches, but there are almost no laughs, save what Scott valiantly squeezes out of Stifler's antics. "
" It's a reunion that finds the old friends grappling with new dilemmas. "
" American Reunion reminds us what we liked about the original: the way the movie sweetened its raunch to build a rooting interest in these characters. "
" The movie's message is that the way to face impeding maturity is to embrace your inner teen idiot. "
" Confirms the perception that only losers attend high-school reunions. "
" A strained, relentless quest for gross-out humor and outlandish sexual escapades. "
" Outside of porn, there has never been a movie with so many shots of grown men eyeing teenage girls' backsides. The result is fitfully amusing but more often just creepy. "
" American Reunion tries to use nudity, sex, and fecal matter to generate laughter, but the jokes are tired and predictable. "
" In the end, "American Reunion" even gets away with its sequel-baiting closing line: "Till next time!" "
" It's kind of sad, in a way. "
" Doesn't provide the generational high producers thought it would; this isn't exactly the cast of "American Graffiti." "
" American Reunion, remarkably, might just be the funniest issue yet from the American Pie franchise factory. "
" Overall, the level of wit and invention from writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg is well below their scripts for the three "Harold and Kumar" movies. "
" None of it makes much of an impression, although there are a few nice and surprisingly heartfelt moments around the edges. "
" "Reunion" should be the last slice of "Pie," America. "
" Rare is the movie that brings "American Pie" to mind and suffers by comparison, but here we have one. "
" It has some good moments, but it goes on too long, and not enough happens that is likely to create new memories. "
" The entire film is a mistake. "
" An aggressively crass - and not especially funny - trip down memory lane, an attempt to recapture the sweetly ribald magic of the earlier film. "
