If you saw the first three American Pie movies then you might as well persevere and watch American Reunion. 13 years have past since the first instalment and all of the original gang return to town for their high school reunion. Its great to catch up with them as they reminisce and relive some of their old teenage antics. With the crude slapstick aside, the first film worked because it had a charm that struck a chord with it's viewers and this new movie works for similar reasons. Where they were young, confused and desperate in the first movie they're now dealing with age and the realisation of a youth they can never recapture. It's a more mature story with all of the famous infantile gags. I'm a guilty sucker for the American Pie series and I confess that I even like the 4 spin off movies. Not every joke hits the mark but enough of them hit bullseye to make it worth the time. They also managed to get Stifler's character back on track after he took on a weird uber-stupid mode in American Wedding.
