American Reunion

Eight movies (4 released in theaters with the "real" cast). Eugene Levy was in all of them. In practice, American Reunion is a great idea. It has been about 15 years since the the original hit theaters. You could just start doing reunion movies every 5 years or so. But...judging by this movie, the next one will be in 30 years called "American Funeral"(how great would it be if that were true).

Picking up many years after American Wedding, everyone is scattered all over the U.S. and decide to come back for their 13 year reunion. Technically it has been 13 years but I'm not sure it makes more sense to have them explain why they're doing a reunion this year versus just fudging the dates and say it is their 15 year reunion.

The movie is pretty terrible. The usual litmus test for a comedy is laughs, but are few to be found here. Which is a shame, because they've got a pretty good cast (no, not you, Chris Klein).

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you buy it?

Would you rent it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
