American Reunion Reviews

  • If you liked the first film, then seeing these characters over a decade later, involved in the same silly set-ups will be pretty entertaining.

    Julian Roman — MovieWeb

  • As it turns out, the recipe has been updated, and what once seemed like fatally warmed-over Pie tastes new again.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • It has some good moments, but it goes on too long, and not enough happens that is likely to create new memories.

    A.O. Scott — New York Times

  • A strained, relentless quest for gross-out humor and outlandish sexual escapades.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • An aggressively crass - and not especially funny - trip down memory lane, an attempt to recapture the sweetly ribald magic of the earlier film.

    Michael O'Sullivan — Washington Post

  • Just to be clear: 13 is how many years have passed since the first film. It's also a number that's such bad news that elevators skip it all together.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Taken altogether, the Pie movies offer a cohesive worldview, showing each of life's stages as the setting for fresh-yet-familiar catastrophes, relieved by a belief in sex, however ridiculous it might look, as a restorative force.

    Nick Pinkerton — Village Voice

  • Doesn't provide the generational high producers thought it would; this isn't exactly the cast of "American Graffiti."

    Joe Neumaier — New York Daily News

  • Yes, American Reunion is a juvenile outing. They steal jet skis and defecate in beer coolers. They cheat on their girlfriends and lie to their best friends. But what did you expect?

    Ricardo Baca — Denver Post

  • It's got some pretty good jokes, too. OK, maybe they aren't that good, but they're performed with excellent timing.

    Glenn Kenny — MSN Movies

  • "American Reunion" has a sense of deja vu, but it still delivers a lot of nice laughs.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • Every other line, it seems, refers to "back in the day" or "wasn't this more fun when we were younger?" or how "old" they're feeling. You'd think this was a remake of "Cocoon."

    Michael Phillips — Chicago Tribune

  • It's a reunion that finds the old friends grappling with new dilemmas.

    Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Rare is the movie that brings "American Pie" to mind and suffers by comparison, but here we have one.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • "Reunion" should be the last slice of "Pie," America.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • It's sort of like visiting your hometown and running into that kid you kind of, sort of knew in high school. You weren't asking for an update, but it's pleasant enough to get one.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • While it's poignant seeing the whole gang again, the tired gross-out antics and limp romantic reprisals keep this hapless if heartfelt effort from qualifying as a decent comedy, let alone a generational classic.

    Justin Chang — Variety

  • Overall, the level of wit and invention from writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg is well below their scripts for the three "Harold and Kumar" movies.

    Lou Lumenick — New York Post

  • American Reunion, remarkably, might just be the funniest issue yet from the American Pie franchise factory.

    Peter Howell — Toronto Star

  • Confirms the perception that only losers attend high-school reunions.

    Stephen Cole — Globe and Mail
