The American Pie series comes full circle as the characters from the 1999 comedy classic return to East Great Falls for their ten-year high-school reunion and experience a weekend they will never forget. While some couples, like Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), got serious and tied the knot, others, like Oz (Chris Klein) and Heather (Mena Suvari), went their separate ways. Meanwhile, Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) still looks back with lust at that perfect evening he spent with Stifler's mom. Seann William Scott, Tara Reid, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Shannon Elizabeth, Eugene Levy, and Natasha Lyonne co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, RoviMovie TypeMovie Level ThemesMovie Level Tones

In order to breathe new life into the American Pie franchise, the studio asked Harold & Kumar creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg if they wanted to take a crack at writing and directing a feature about the circle of friends going to a class reunion. It turned out that the duo had grown up with the series and reveled in the opportunity to revive Jim, Stifler, Finch, Kevin, and the rest of the gang. The phrase "rest of the gang" isn't used lightly. For their American Reunion, the pair bring back seemingly every single character from the first movie -- even Nadia and Sherman get a scene -- and make sure that each of them gets at least one bit of business or laugh. All of these callbacks make American Reunion a joy for those who really have lived with that first film in their hearts for over a decade.
Thirteen years after graduating, Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are married with a child, and the toll of everyday domestic life has sapped away the erotic elements of their relationship -- a point driven home in the very funny opening scene, a comedic set piece about sexual frustration that promises more than the movie eventually delivers.
Jim and Michelle soon head back home for a high-school reunion, where they meet up with Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), a devoted househusband who finds himself succumbing to feelings for his old girlfriend Vicky (Tara Reid); Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), who has spent the last decade traveling the globe like the twentysomething version of the Dos Equis pitchman; Oz (Chris Klein), a successful television sports reporter who is married to a shallow hottie; and Stifler (Seann William Scott), who works as an office temp and has to take a voluminous amount of crap from a boss just as sarcastic, obnoxious, and offensive as he is.
