American Reunion is now available to own, and comes in so many formats half of the Blu-ray cover is devoted to explaining them all. The combo pack includes Blu-Ray, DVD, digital copy and Ultraviolet formats, and I’m pretty sure there is a way to watch it on your watch, too. Funny enough, there’s also an “All-New Movie” sticker on the package, which makes me think Universal is afraid that people will confuse the movie with the original American Pie.
Since the entire cast has returned for this fourth theatrical installment, and the Blu-ray cover plays off the original’s movie poster, it’s actually understandable.
American Reunion is a nostalgic trip down memory lane, an enjoyable throwback to the classic teen comedy that fully embraces its title. While the characters are older and less interesting in many respects, as older people tend to be when compared to their adventurous and awkward teenage selves, writer/directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg do a good job in the entertainment department.
Some critics bashed the movie for being a blatant cash grab, and in ways it is – most of the cast members haven’t exactly been in high demand for the last decade – but for fans of the original, there is plenty to enjoy.
