I’m not really sure if American Reunion is going to work. The newest red band trailer features our main characters, played by Jason Biggs and Alyson Hannigan, masturbating while their kid walks in. It’s this kind of raunchy and inappropriate humor that made the American Pie films so funny back in the 90’s, but now they just seem out of place and kind of disgusting. Don’t get me wrong here, I love a good raunchy comedy, but this just looks almost sad and depressing.
Maybe once more footage is actually revealed we will be able to get a sense of direction here, but for now I’m pegging this one low on my radar of unneeded sequels that are somehow getting made years later.
What are your thoughts? Check out the red band trailer below!
American Reunion opens on April 6th, 2012.
In the comedy American Reunion, all the American Pie characters we met a little more than a decade ago are returning to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn’t and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim and Michelle married while Kevin and Vicky said goodbye. Oz and Heather grew apart, but Finch still longs for Stifler’s mom. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about—and get inspired by—the hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend.
