Trop triste que la serie AMERICAN PIE s'arrete...

Goingthedistance2012

I really enjoyed the first three American Pie movies and I was pretty excited to see that a reunion movie with the original cast was made. I’ve been reading mixed reviews about the movie but they are a part of my teenage years and I couldn’t help wanting to see this one as well. At the kiosk by my house the movie wasn’t available but a Dish co-worker suggested trying out Blockbuster @ Home. It brings the movies right to my door or I can stream directly to my Hopper. I got the movie about a week a go and I really enjoyed it. There are thousands of other movies I can get delivered by mail so no more hunting them down. As far as the disquiet that was mentioned in a previous post, I think it is the latter – we aren’t as young as we used to be and that’s ok. That’s what a reunion is for anyway: to remind us of times past.

Thanks, gents.

Great review, and a reminder of why I come here since you aren't going to get anything as thoughtful on American Pie IV (VIII? IX?) anywhere else. The only thing I can add is that you made it sound much better than **.

Good stuff, Bill. Looking back, I sometimes wonder if my disquiet with Reunion came about through genuine disappointment or because it was an uncomfortable reminder that we're not as young as we used to be. I guess that if the American Pie is a comfortable nostalgia pill (both today and back then - how else to explain the use of "Don't You Forget About Me" at the Prom?), then the Reunion shows the dark side of nostalgia and wish fulfillment - and for that, it should be commended.
