Mars Movie Reviews – American Reunion

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 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. — (C) Universal

Mars Review:  American Pie’s characters have grown up and settled down. Don’t worry, the franchise hasn’t. More than a decade on, Reunion opens with two wank jokes and never looks back.  A watch-able sequel that gets by on strong comic performances and the audience’s inbuilt affection for its likeable characters.   Consistently enjoyable and often laugh-out-loud crowd-pleaser,  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.

Stars: 2 1/2 out of 5
