Weaving the past and present, the fourth installment of the original American Pie series “American Reunion” aims to strike a chord with the audience following the comedy series since 1999.

Nostalgia reigns as the original American Pie cast gathers at East Great Falls for their high school reunion on a weekend after 13 years, seeing how everyone’s lives and looks have changed over the years. Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) now have a two-year old son. Jim embroils in a tussle with 18-year-old Kara (Ali Cobrin) who he used to babysit and seeks reconciliation with Michelle.

Oz (Chris Klein) works a sportscaster and meets his old flame Heather (Mena Suvari) with her boyfriend, a doctor, at the reunion. Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), who is married, misunderstands Vicky (Tara Reid) when he woke up beside her after a night of drinks. Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) has traveled the world and experienced adventure that the others only dream of.

Stifler (Seann William Scott) continues to deliver memorable lines with virtually no verbal filters. His drastic actions against a group of rebellious teenagers prove that he has not changed a bit since the high school days. Jim’s Dad (Eugene Levy) meets Stifler’s Mom (Jennifer Coolidge) at the reunion and sparks went off between them.

This film contains many contemporary icons like Facebook, Youtube and “Gossip Girls” to connect with the audience. Viewers can also tie in their personal experiences that there are more adult concerns to worry about than the times in high school.

Nudity is brief as compared to previous American Pie series, but still contains a great deal of sexual content. Certainly, this comedy will trigger lots of laughter and delight the movie-going crowd that grew up with the series.
