Sweet crisp apple pie, band camp and crazy Stifler parties. “American Reunion” is the fourth installment in the “American Pie” series. Even though it isn’t the best of the four, it was still worth the many laughs shared among the audience.
The movie starts with Jim and Michelle, showing off their life and what has happened in the past three years. Since they had a kid their lives have become dull, especially in the bedroom. The 10-year high school reunion for “East Falls” is being held so they head out back home to attend. Jim, Kevin, Oz, Finch and Stifler all get together and continue their crazy antics, even well into their adult years.
Jennifer Coolidge reprised her role as the famous Stifler’s mom and Eugene Levy came back as Jim’s dad. All the same actors came back to play their characters and we even got to see a couple new great faces. The acting was fantastic even from the newbies.
As far as character development all the characters seem to be the same as they were back then except Stifler who grows a bit more every time we see him. The movie brings the sense that they have all matured a bit since half the characters have started their own lives. As they all grow older it is interesting to see how they all still have their child like antics and young spirits.
The way the movie plays out is great. It helped people to see how the different characters spent their lives after high school and how they changed. The script was hilarious as expected bringing many smiles and laughs. The intimate and special moments of the movie were very heartwarming and inspiring.
The cinematography and how it was shot was awesome. They had beautiful shots of scenery from the “East Falls” area as well as areas close by. The camera was always positioned just right and got good angles.
If you like this series then I definitely recommend going to see it. It was a great movie and I would love to see another movie come out. The movie ends with the possibility of another installment being made so maybe there will be one made in the future.
