Movie Info

In the comedy American Reunion, all the American Pie characters we met a little more than a decade ago return 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 … More

All Critics (170) | Top Critics (36) | Fresh (73) | Rotten (97) | DVD (3)

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.

Top Critic

American Reunion tries to use nudity, sex, and fecal matter to generate laughter, but the jokes are tired and predictable.

Top Critic

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?

Rare is the movie that brings "American Pie" to mind and suffers by comparison, but here we have one.

None of it makes much of an impression, although there are a few nice and surprisingly heartfelt moments around the edges.

Newark Star-Ledger

A strained, relentless quest for gross-out humor and outlandish sexual escapades.

With dated jokes and a slew of unfunny scenes, this comedy fails to live up to its predecessors.

John Hanlon Reviews

American Reunion is of the funniest movies of the year. The filmmakers and cast captured what made the original so great while making you forget the spinoffs. Fans of the original won't be disappointed.

We Got This Covered

By the end, viewers will likely be ready for another slice of some American Pie before another decade has passed.

Full Review… | October 2, 2012

The cast are more likely to attend rehab than the Oscars ... but despite my scathing preconceptions, American Reunion is actually pretty funny.

The Aristocrat

American Reunion is the worst slice of pie yet. All of the jokes are ten years too old and none of the serious dramatic turns amounts to anything.

Points for consistency, I guess, on the part of Harold & Kumar creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg.

Film Freak Central

Tries so hard to be this generation's The Big Chill that the very reason why it exists - sexy, gross out, adolescent fun - feels thoroughly out of place.

Full Review… | August 22, 2012

American Reunion is one last slice of pie worth having. It's a tasty treat to the many fans who made this franchise what it is.

Full Review… | July 10, 2012

A nice slice to finish the pie.

Empire Magazine Australasia

As a postscript to the arc of the first three films, it's a fittiingly funny and surprisingly sweet coda.

Full Review… | May 6, 2012

A consistently enjoyable and often laugh-out-loud crowd-pleaser.

The List

It's simply an excuse to repeatedly rehash the kind of explicit gag which simply wasn't needed in the original 1999 movie.

Birmingham Mail

SIt's reassuring to see that Suvari (wooden) and Reid (flat) can still find work that doesn't involve wearing a hairnet and a name tag.

Irish Times

The jokes are old and the guys are older, but it's big-hearted entertainment that does need some previous character investment to catch all the nods.

Some things they do better over there. Some things they shouldn't do over here at all.

The guys are back and attending a high-school reunion, but not much has changed. That is not a good thing.

Daily Mail [UK]

There are a few gags. But inevitably, the guys wind up sentimentally telling each other they should do this every year. Please no.

Full Review… | May 3, 2012

The old bittersweet tone is gone, replaced by the sickly sweet and the downright tasteless.

Audience Reviews for American Reunion


Decent but fun movie, really bring nostalgic and the producer decision to collecting all the old stars and bring em back together is just amazing.. At least the story wasn't that bad since it's everyday life.. But overall, after 12 years from it's first movie, American Pie bring a sequel that turns out to be entertaining even when they're already adult..

It was okay. I didn't really like the younger teen cast and some of the older ones seemed surplus (I realize it wouldn't have been much of a reunion without them).
It just seemed like the only funny bits were with Jim and Michelle. This would have been much better if it was just about them, maybe with more on Jim's dad meeting and dating Stiflers mum. Now that would have been a good movie!
It wasn't bad, but it dragged and fell flat.

Update - watched again 10/1/14. Have upgraded original review to 3 1/2 stars. I enjoyed more the second time. Maybe because my expectations were high on first viewing and very low this time! I also watched theatrical version instead of extended. Maybe that helped.

Hail to the Stifmeister! If someone had told me this would be just as funny as the original, I would have given him the look of doubt and thought "no way!". But it's astonishingly true; American Reunion is virtually as hilarious as its predecessor from -99. It's almost hard to believe it's been that long since we first aquainted ourselves with Jim and his colorful friends.

So what have the boys been up to in those last 13 years? Well, quite a lot actually, and we're not just talking recessing hairlines here. Jim is now a dad, Oz a bit of a C-celebrity and reporter for a newscast, and Stifler, well, he's still very much the same, except now he occationally wears a suit and tie to his office job.

What immediately becomes clear is 1.) some have aged more well than others, and 2.) the acting talent is still everything between mediocre and outstanding. Jason Biggs and Sean William Scott remain my favourites of the lot though. Not to mention Eugene Levy, who plays Jim's well-meaning, but embarassingly open dad. He keeps getting funnier with each film and delivers his best performance to date.

Evidently they're not teens anymore, but as wild and crazy as they get here, it feels like no time has passed at all. So much could have gone wrong with this film, yet they nail every joke and keep the laughs coming throughout. And it wouldn't be an American Pie flick without the traditionally awkward situations, worth a couple of good cringes.

But isn't just outrageously fun, it has heart too! All the character arcs are wrapped up with great and fitting closures, leaving you with a nice, warm feeling inside and a smile most satisfied. Even John Cho and Neil Patrick Harris make a short appearance in the film; the former of whom will always be legendary for coining the term "MILF".

Nudity, alcohol, off-the-hook partying - it's all in there as it should be! But what separates this from the usual comedy fluff (or some of the other sequels in the franchise for that matter) is that it makes us feel like one in the gang, as opposed to just resorting to gratuitous sex scenes and excessive use of the F-word. Sure, it's really raunchy, but it has brains to go along with it!

So if you love this bunch as much as I do, you'll be happy to know it's the best film since numero uno. Greatest of all, Stifler has still got it, delivering the biggest laughs of the movie and sealing his status as the most lovable deuche-bag of all-time! That and other merits makes me eager to come back for another slice of pie! Although preferably a piece that hasn't been anywhere near Jim.

Update (2013-08-06): Not as great the second time around (hence a reduction from 4 to 3 1/2 stars). A re-watch made its imperfections all the more conspicuous. Still the best in the series since the original though.

Nostalgic and repetitive. American Reunion does its best to cling and clutch onto the youth and freedom that the original desperately craved but it falls flat. The humor is still there and still raunchy but it doesn't provide anything fresh for new audiences and die-hard fans alike. Regardless, it's a film that can provide some laughs. 4/5
