American Reunion Reviews

An aggressively crass - and not especially funny - trip down memory lane, an attempt to recapture the sweetly ribald magic of the earlier film.
April 5, 2012
Doesn't provide the generational high producers thought it would; this isn't exactly the cast of "American Graffiti."
April 5, 2012
The entire film is a mistake.

"Am I wrong or was this place a lot more fun when we were younger?" a character asks. He's not wrong.
April 5, 2012
It has some good moments, but it goes on too long, and not enough happens that is likely to create new memories.
April 5, 2012
American Reunion, remarkably, might just be the funniest issue yet from the American Pie franchise factory.
April 5, 2012
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.
April 5, 2012
It's kind of sad, in a way.
April 5, 2012
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.
April 5, 2012
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.
April 5, 2012
The movie's message is that the way to face impeding maturity is to embrace your inner teen idiot.
April 5, 2012
It's a reunion that finds the old friends grappling with new dilemmas.
April 5, 2012
Just to be clear: 13 is how many years have passed since the first film. It's also a number that's such bad news that elevators skip it all together.
April 5, 2012
It's sort of like visiting your hometown and running into that kid you kind of, sort of knew in high school. You weren't asking for an update, but it's pleasant enough to get one.
April 5, 2012
Please, God, tell me you're not going to waste your time and - more important - money on prepubescent jerk-off humor that reeks of comedic flopsweat and gender-insensitive sexual frustration.
April 5, 2012
American Reunion has the same thing going for it that American Pie did: it understands the hilariously perverted inner-workings of the male mind.
April 5, 2012
It's got some pretty good jokes, too. OK, maybe they aren't that good, but they're performed with excellent timing.
April 5, 2012
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, risqu situations, die-hard friendships, and all.
April 5, 2012
The movie never overcomes the feeling that it is - above all else - an attempt to wring a few more dollars out from a once-profitable franchise.
April 5, 2012
Every other line, it seems, refers to "back in the day" or "wasn't this more fun when we were younger?" or how "old" they're feeling. You'd think this was a remake of "Cocoon."
