There are, actually, many people who find the continuation of American Pie in American Reunion excitingly nostalgic. Of course, most of those people, probably, have memories of their own in the American in crowd that was stunningly and very realistically portrayed in American Pie. Those people who know the realistically depicted personalities in the characters used in American Pie will love to see how their favorite has managed ten years later. That is, basically, the premise of American Reunion.
The all American personalities decide to visit their high school for their 10th year reunion. They descend on East Great Falls High School and begin the process of getting to know each other all over again. The main cast of characters were 4 boys from Michigan who wanted to record their first sex encounter and to let each other know when their male virginity had been penetrated. It really is very, very hilarious and very much a part of the real life saga of male teenagers in upscale American towns all over the country. No one who wants to get a clear understanding of the mental mind set of Americans living in suburban American towns can miss seeing American Reunion.
The cast of dozens includes the main 4 male characters, Jim, Kevin, Oz, and Finch, whose road to male adulthood is described as the strangely unisex term of virgin. That premise is very interesting to students of popular American culture. While some might not think it as funny as others, all will be immensely informed into the actual mind working of teenagers raised in affluent American high schools. Their amusing perception of themselves as sophisticated is what makes the humor of American Reunion.
We find out how the 4 males have fared in the ten years since high school. Along the way we are entertained and titillated by the amorous adventures of Kevin's Dad who is now on the loose with his adult son leading him on the road to sexual release. The role reversals are piquant and much can be understood about, basically, good natured teenagers who had to struggle with their personal identities while keeping the outward resolution demanded of teenagers in suburban American of being hip to what is really coming down, in the vernacular. As a study in the mores of the most influential and powerful culture the world has ever known, Americanism, the movie American Reunion can't be beaten.
