The American Pie series of movies (American Pie, American Pie 2, American Wedding) are definitely on my Showcase of Shame – movies that most critics crap on, but I have a soft spot for – and I’m definitely stoked to see the gang from East Great Falls again on the big screen. What makes the American Pie movies so funny and the characters – Stifler (Seann William Scott), Jim (Jason Biggs), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Oz (Chris Klein), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) – so memorable is the story is based on real-life experiences of American Pie writer, Adam Hertz. The best humor is always grounded in reality, in my opinion, and even though I graduated in 1992, the high school escapades of this gang of friends rung true to the experiences I enjoyed at good ol’ Logan Senior High School in Logan, Utah.
American Reunion, in theaters on April 6, 2012, is the first time since the 1999 original the entire cast has been together. This time around the gang returns to East Great Falls for their high school reunion, and, based on the red band (NSFW) trailer below, there will plenty of jaw-dropping moments to make fans of the series break out the adult undergarmets for laugh-induced pee pee protection.
Take a peek at the American Reunion red band trailer and let me know your thoughts – solid gold or solid poop?
PS – I’m not sure the trailer’s creators could have picked a better song than R.Kelly’s Bump n’ Grind! Hilarious!
