Our Score
Nine years after the third of the American Pie movies (disregarding a few forgettable straight-to-DVD efforts) the temptation to reunite Jim, Oz, Stifler and co has become too irresistible. Sadly, it soon becomes apparent that they should all have stayed at home. Harold and Kumar writer/directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg take an age to get things going - a full 15 minutes of tedious pre-reunion exposition could easily be dropped - then when the guys do finally meet there's a palpable air of strained pointlessness to the whole thing. And while raunchy pudding abuse is amusing, even bizarrely endearing in teenagers, these antics become a bit creepy in 30-somethings who really should have grown out of it. Only a conspicuously buff Seann William Scott, the only one of the original cast to have got anything like a film career, manfully tries to inject a little energy and even a subdued note of genuine pathos, and the film loses something when he's not on screen. Let's just hope a series of reunions movies do not now beckon.

Summary

Jim Levenstein and his old friends return to their home town for a high-school reunion. Struck by how much their lives have changed, they set out to relive the sexual misadventures of their adolescence, but only end up making bigger fools of themselves than they did as teenagers. Comedy sequel to the American Pie movies, starring Jason Biggs and Alyson Hannigan.
