Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Not to be confused with the American Pie installment of the same name, this 2004 drama travels to the small but ethnically diverse town of Ojai, California. Spanning the 24 hour period just prior to the Class of 1981's 20th Reunion, the film finds Latina mayor Margaret (Marlene Forte) bringing together several individuals, in an effort to re-evoke the "good old days." Her invitees include five buddies, a younger brother, and an enigmatic photographer. Initially, she desperately attempts to recapture the elusive joy of her adolescent years as she grapples with the opening speech of the reunion. The hours that follow, however, transport the woman on a journey of self-discovery, as she begins to conclude that the present and the future are far more vital than lost youth.

"American Reunion is the rare film that fails to impress at first but somehow, slowly grabs you until it has you in a warm embrace by its conclusion.

"American Reunion" transcends its technical limitations with the help of some fine performances and a nicely turned screenplay.
