Film Clip: American Reunion
Not that you asked, but here’s what’s going on with the American Pie class of ’99. The hapless Jim (Jason Biggs) and horny Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are cordially married but sexually disconnected. Sweet beefcake Oz (Chris Klein) settled into sub-ESPN sportscasting after losing a TV dance contest. Nonentity Kevin (Thomas Ian Nichols) compensates for Real Housewives date nights with a gently manicured beard. Pseudo-sophisticate Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) has fashioned himself as a bohemian drifter, and rude-boy Stifler (Seann William Scott) grumbles his way through corporate-temp subservience. Getting collectively sentimental about the shame-based comedy of crude bodily functions, they reconvene for some cathartic and quaintly raunchy regression. With presiding father figure Eugene Levy ever game and in good form, writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg labor over a lot of set-up and a lot of wrap-up to carry off one big so-so sequel heap of millennial nostalgia.
