Bye Bye good ole American Pie

It's been well over ten years since we met the gang from the American Pie series, but now the high school grads are back for their reunion, albeit a tad bit late.

Jason Biggs and Allyson Hannigan are married with child. Thomas Ian Nicholas is also married but pines for his old high school sweetheart, Tara Reid. Chris Klein has an incredibly vapid girlfriend, and Mena Suvari has an equally vapid and vain boyfriend. Eddie Kaye Thomas, as always, has a tall tale to tell and still can boast of his conquest of Stffler's mom.

And Stiffler? Well, let's just say, he's still Stiffler.

American Pie hit theaters with a slam bam thank you ma'am approach that had audience jaws dropping and wondering, "did they really just do that"?

Yes. Yes they did.

And here they are, back on the big screen again, although minus much of the teen angst and replaced with adult angst, reminiscences and regrets. The same thing people in real life go through, often at their class reunions.

Some of the jokes are as stale as the original featured pie from the first movie. And then, there's Stiffler, constantly trying to out-gross himself.

But the one thing I did enjoy was seeing all the faces that we came to know and love back on the screen for one more romp. Most of the characters were a joy to see again. Then again, there's Stiffler.

Now a new generation of filmgoers will be introduced to the characters. Will they be back for more? Only time will tell.

Is there anything original hear? Not really...the funniest in-joke in the movie was the union between Jim's dad (Eugene Levy, as deadpan hysterical as ever) and Stiffler's mom (Jennifer Coolidge, in full MILF mode). Stick around for the end credits for a special treat with the two of them.

And then there was this one time, at band camp...oh never mind. I give the movie 3-1/2 our 5 stars.

What was your favorite American Pie movie?
