American Reunion


The characters we met a little more than a decade ago are returning to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn’t and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim and Michelle married while Kevin and Vicky said goodbye. Oz and Heather grew apart, but Finch still longs for Stifler’s mom. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about – and get inspired by – the hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend.

More Info:
  • Marc Savlov

    Of course, if you loathed the first film, this one probably won't do much to change your mind. But fans, and I count myself among them, of the Weitz brothers' unexpectedly enjoyable original will find themselves in a familiar and perhaps comforting place … filthy language, risqué situations, die-hard friendships, and all.

  • Roger Ebert

    American Reunion has a sense of deja vu, but it still delivers a lot of nice laughs.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    American Reunion is about the comedy of middle-class men who can't be satisfied with sex until it looks like porn.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The picture is devilishly entertaining, not least because it's laced with just the sort of dumb raunchy jokes you hate yourself for laughing at. But it also preserves, to a degree, the elemental sweetness that made the original so distinctive.

  • Pete Hammond

    The result is the best slice of Pie yet: a savvy sequel that's flat-out hilarious raunchy fun.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Taken altogether, the Pie movies offer a cohesive worldview, showing each of life's stages as the setting for fresh-yet-familiar catastrophes, relieved by a belief in sex, however ridiculous it might look, as a restorative force.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The laughs that do achieve liftoff are killer. But the real kick is seeing the old gang back and ready to party.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    In some ways, American Reunion is the Charlize Theron indie "Young Adult" all over again: In both, a small-town high school reunion is the setting for a lot of nostalgia and narcissism and nasty behavior.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    There's some laughing gas left in the cupboard, but this series may require an infusion of new blood to last until "American Funeral."

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Jonathan Crocker

    Warning: contains Jason Biggs' wang and the contents of Stifler's bowels. Happily, the fourth, funny, (possibly) final serving of American Pie is also warm and nostalgic enough to satisfy.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Guys and gals from the first film, now thicker and with incipient crow lines, pair up in more or less the same permutations as when they were young and shiny. The movie's message is that the way to face impeding maturity is to embrace your inner teen idiot.

    Time Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    American Reunion depends more on the audience's feelings for recognizable characters than telling an original story, so adjust your expectations accordingly.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • John DeFore

    The wild card in all this remains Seann William Scott's Steve Stifler, the rampaging id whose indignation at his peers' maturity provides most of the film's real laughs.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Call it a strange and unintended benefit, then, that many of these generic characters work better as awkward adults than as teens.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg are content to trot out the familiar gags and characters, and the murmurs of recognition I heard in the preview audience indicate that the series has become some kind of sad generational touchstone.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This is a joyless experience made all the sadder because most viewers still remember the naughty delights delivered by "American Pie."

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Harmless if not exactly inspired, and rarely hilarious.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    Halfway through, everyone starts drinking heavily and the film turns into agreeably sloppy fun. (Isn't that always the way – class reunions often perk up when someone spikes the punch.)

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    An immature obsession with sex at 17 seems understandable. But at 30 it's getting cringe-inducing.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Now and then the movie rouses itself to deliver. If you go to American Reunion - and many will, if they harbor fond memories of the first one, and if they can find a sitter - you should stay through the end credits.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The actors, many of them now in their mid-30s, look understandably fuller in the face and thicker around the waist. The jokes, too, are starting to show their age: They wobble.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    The film alternates sloppily executed sex gags with sentiment, as did its predecessors. And it's all just slightly more endearing and amusing than it has any right to be.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The movie's only constant pleasure - heck, the whole franchise's - is Eugene Levy as Jim's dad, widowed and wondering if it's time to date again.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Funnier than its prior two predecessors, if gratingly awash in demographic-pandering late-'90s alt-rock hits ("Closing Time," "Freshman"), American Reunion flounders with its earnest melodrama.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Inevitably, the guys wind up sentimentally telling each other they should do this every year. Please no.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • James White

    The first couple of servings back in the day were fresh and fruity, but the franchise has been left on the shelf a little too long. It's occasionally entertaining to have these characters back in our lives, but for the most part this fails to party like it's 1999.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    What keeps the movie afloat, though, is Seann William Scott as Steve Stifler.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Remember "American Pie"? If you do, this movie is redundant and sad. If you don't, it's irrelevant.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    While it's poignant seeing the whole gang again, the tired gross-out antics and limp romantic reprisals keep this hapless if heartfelt effort from qualifying as a decent comedy, let alone a generational classic.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    An aggressively crass - and not especially funny - trip down memory lane, an attempt to recapture the sweetly ribald magic of the earlier film. As anyone who's ever attended a class reunion can tell you, it almost never works.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The directors don't know how to make this new plot funny or infectious. Most promises of comedic pleasure go as unfulfilled Stifler's T-shirt. This movie hasn't a clue where to begin the donation process.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    American Reunion isn't a total wash. Its one saving grace is Eugene Levy as Jim's dad.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    In the half-baked American Reunion, though, they might have accomplished what no previous chapter has: They might have just killed it.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Scenes will wander from gross-out gag to sentimental schmaltz to pervy leer to cheap nostalgia within a 30-second span, utterly free of clear directorial guidance. Even worse, very little of it is remotely funny.
