American Reunion tries to use nudity, sex, and fecal matter to generate laughter, but the jokes are tired and predictable.
-James BerardinelliFull Review
Yes, American Reunion is a juvenile outing. They steal jet skis and defecate in beer coolers. They cheat on their girlfriends and lie to their best friends. But what did you expect?
-Ricardo BacaFull Review
Rare is the movie that brings "American Pie" to mind and suffers by comparison, but here we have one.
-Colin CovertFull Review
None of it makes much of an impression, although there are a few nice and surprisingly heartfelt moments around the edges.
-Stephen WhittyFull Review
A strained, relentless quest for gross-out humor and outlandish sexual escapades.
-Claudia PuigFull Review
Confirms the perception that only losers attend high-school reunions.
-Stephen ColeFull Review
In the end, "American Reunion" even gets away with its sequel-baiting closing line: "Till next time!"
-Rafer GuzmanFull Review
"Reunion" should be the last slice of "Pie," America.
-Tom LongFull Review
Overall, the level of wit and invention from writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg is well below their scripts for the three "Harold and Kumar" movies.
-Lou LumenickFull Review
An aggressively crass - and not especially funny - trip down memory lane, an attempt to recapture the sweetly ribald magic of the earlier film.
-Michael O'SullivanFull Review
Doesn't provide the generational high producers thought it would; this isn't exactly the cast of "American Graffiti."
-Joe NeumaierFull Review
The entire film is a mistake.
-Amy BiancolliFull Review
It has some good moments, but it goes on too long, and not enough happens that is likely to create new memories.
-A.O. ScottFull Review
American Reunion, remarkably, might just be the funniest issue yet from the American Pie franchise factory.
-Peter HowellFull Review
It's kind of sad, in a way.
-Andrew LapinFull Review
American Reunion reminds us what we liked about the original: the way the movie sweetened its raunch to build a rooting interest in these characters.
-Peter TraversFull Review
The movie's message is that the way to face impeding maturity is to embrace your inner teen idiot.
-Richard CorlissFull Review
It's a reunion that finds the old friends grappling with new dilemmas.
-Steven ReaFull Review
Just to be clear: 13 is how many years have passed since the first film. It's also a number that's such bad news that elevators skip it all together.
-Wesley MorrisFull Review
It's sort of like visiting your hometown and running into that kid you kind of, sort of knew in high school. You weren't asking for an update, but it's pleasant enough to get one.
-Bill GoodykoontzFull Review
It's got some pretty good jokes, too. OK, maybe they aren't that good, but they're performed with excellent timing.
-Glenn KennyFull Review
So why, why more American Pie? It's a lame one, just the same one, now with much older guys. And starlets wearing mileage from all their whiskey and rye. Singing "Why did my career go 'bye'?"
-Roger MooreFull Review
The movie never overcomes the feeling that it is - above all else - an attempt to wring a few more dollars out from a once-profitable franchise.
-Rene RodriguezFull Review
Every other line, it seems, refers to "back in the day" or "wasn't this more fun when we were younger?" or how "old" they're feeling. You'd think this was a remake of "Cocoon."
-Michael PhillipsFull Review
As it turns out, the recipe has been updated, and what once seemed like fatally warmed-over Pie tastes new again.
-Owen GleibermanFull Review
Be assured you already know exactly what lies within here. That's what makes the picture so comforting. No surprises.
-Soren AndersonFull Review
"American Reunion" has a sense of deja vu, but it still delivers a lot of nice laughs.
-Roger EbertFull Review
"American Reunion" relies on cliches about nostalgia, forced tension over strained friendships and melodrama about the rekindling of first loves.
-Christy LemireFull Review
A mediocre and all-too obvious sequel that utterly fails to recapture the youthful spark of its original.
-Randy MyersFull Review
While it's poignant seeing the whole gang again, the tired gross-out antics and limp romantic reprisals keep this hapless if heartfelt effort from qualifying as a decent comedy, let alone a generational classic.
