“Don’t mess with the class of 99, bitch! ” – Kevin

Brief Synopsis – The original group is back for their High School reunion and each must try and deal with the issues related to being 15 years older and reuniting with friends.
My Take on it – Great seeing these characters back together again and the chemistry between them all doesn’t feel lacking in any manner.
the problem here is that some of the storylines shown here are quite weak and despite seeing everyone back together, that doesn’t help make it more fun or engaging or even enjoyable to watch.
It is great revisiting these characters, but something is missing along the way because it isn’t able to fully recapture the camaraderie and fun of the original film or it’s two theatrical sequels.
For fans of the series there are lots of connections and references to the stories set forth in the previous theatrical films, but all in all, they fail to bring forth something that even remains on par with what was created beforehand with these characters and their comedy of errors scenarios.
Great seeing so many of the past cast members coming back for this and that helps give off a feel for lots of nostalgia despite the fact that something feels missing that would have made this even better.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – This is the fifth time Eddie Kaye Thomas, John Cho and Neil Patrick Harris (cameo appearance) star in a film together. Although Harris had an uncredited cameo in American Pie 2 (2001), “American Reunion” is the fourth film written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to include the three actors after the “Harold and Kumar” films. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
