After watching this movie i came to the conclusion that American Pie 1 was the best out of all four movies in the franchise and it is safe to say that American Pie 3 (American Wedding) to me was far better than two, but this new American Pie (Reunion) is better than two but not three.

The original cast all reprise their roles, giving us the same deal as the first three nothing new:

Masturbation (check): in fact the first scene has it occurring twice
Jim watching porn (check): that has been a stalemate in all American Pie
Stif-mister (check): not growing up at all he is still obnoxious and out of his senses defecating in some teenagers drink cooler
Sex (check) and nudity (check).

Nothing much can be said about the movie’s plot without dropping spoilers, just that all our characters have grown, some are married, and Jim and Michelle had a two year old son.

The gang decided to have a 1999 reunion party, which brought back old feelings, causing some to reunite and another to stay friends, Stifler gets to pull one over Finch which is the main twist in the movie. Finch who has since American Pie 1 been going to bed with Stifler’s mum.

In 1999 it began with losing virginity and the raping of a pie, to a weird weekend getaway down to the marriage between Jim and Michelle, and Stifler plans to milk a lady going moo – moo (in American Pie 3). With all this in the past we now see them in a different light, old and kind of boring light.

Well if you are looking for a good story line, know that American Pie has never tried to offer any neither has the acting been extra-ordinary as most cast behaved like over grown kids. The directing is not exceptional as the movie is juvenile and the plot is just over the roof ridicules. But hey! What were you expecting? It is American Pie.

One thing though, if you are in the mood for some juvenile high school kind of movie, 21 Jump Street is a good movie for you, because that too had grownups behaving like misplaced juvenile youths.

If you are a fan of the older versions then this can slip under the rug as a movie you may like, but if you are not a fan of the whole "Pie" raping scheme, then maybe another movie will be just right for you.
