American Pie Reunion - American ReunionIt’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since the last American Pie Movie, I’m talking about American Wedding in 2003 with the original cast, not those four awful spin-offs that we had to endure over the last 10 years.

So 10 Years after Jim and Michelle got married, we have the American Pie: Reunion (American Reunion) hitting our screens bringing back the original cast of the class of 1999 and now we find out what everyone has been up to and how their lives have changed in the last 10 years. Of course you just know they are all going to be getting up to things they shouldn’t and now, as adults, they should know better, but do they!?

American Pie: Reunion – Blazing Minds Film Review

Let’s face it folks when we had American Pie: The Wedding back in 2003, we all thought that it would be the end of the series of movies and what almost killed the franchise was the spin-offs, “American Pie Presents”, these were really all a poor excuse to try to bring a fresh bit of life to the movies and perhaps introduce a new audience to the American Pie films, but sadly they were terrible.

But if you think about it, it was inevitable that a new American Pie film with the original cast would come out, in my point of view to try and save the franchise.

Having all the original cast back reminded how much fun the very first movie was back in 1999 with its rather funny and sometimes embarrassing moments that poor Jim (Jason Biggs) got himself in to, you all know what I mean, pie anyone 😉

In the latest film it’s much about the same as the original film with the guys up to their old antics, though it does seem a lot tamer, but this is probably down to the age of the characters now than anything else.

There are it’s funny moments, it’s rather rude moments and it’s all out completely daft moments, but this is all part of the package with an American Pie film.

It’s nice to actually have some closer to the characters that we’ve known since 1999, though now I’ve said that, we will probably get another one somewhere down the line, but I hope not as this has really brought the series full circle with the characters and I don’t think they can go any further without spoiling it.

Overall Thoughts For American Pie: Reunion

It’s gross-out comedy that we’ve all come to love is still there, the characters are still the same, but a little older and it’s fun. It’s probably not the best comedy you’ll see and it’s still not as good as the first American Pie, but it’s a great night out and it does give those chuckle muscles a good little work out 😉
