Here’s another blog from a Mississauga Chiropractor…


Just watched American Reunion (2012), starring Jason Biggs (Drexell’s Class), Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) & Seann William Scott (Goon).

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 Levenstein (Jason Biggs) and Michelle Flaherty (Alyson Hannigan) married while Kevin Myers (Thomas Ian Nicholas) and Vicky (Tara Reid) said goodbye.  Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott) is a temp at a big time firm.  Chris ‘Oz’ Ostreicher (Chris Klein) and Heather (Mena Suvari) grew apart, but Paul Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) still longs for Stifler’s mom (Jennifer Coolidge).  Jim’s Dad (Eugene Levy) is now widowed and is out there playing the field and Kara (Ali Cobrin), the little girl that Jim used to babysit is all grown-up.  There are also appearances from Nadia, the Czechoslovakian exchange student (Shannon Elizabeth), the Shermanator (Chris Owen) and the MILF Guys (John Cho & Justin Isfeld).  Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about-and get inspired by-the hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend.

This movie wasn’t the funniest of the American Pie series but what would you expect from this 7 reincarnation, 4 with the orignal cast.  It was nice seeing the original cast 12 years older.  They all pretty much acted the same, and it was nice seeing them all together again.  Jason Biggs and Eugene Levy did a great job paying Jim and his dad.  Their awkward interactions are always funny.  The American Pie formula was still there, like in the movies before hand.  There was a funny, embarrassing opening scene before the opening credits.  There was some gross toilet humour and as always, a little bit of nudity thrown in.

Overall, this was a good film.  I would give it 6/10 stars.  Check it out for some nostalgia… Happy Viewing!
