LRA: American Reunion - Theatrical Review

LRA writes: I have never been what you would call a fan of the American Pie franchise. I like the (theatrical) movies for the most part and would even go so far as to say that I consider the first film to be somewhat of a teen comedy classic at this point in history. However, I just never got attached to any of these characters in a way that actually made me anticipate their return. I certainly enjoyed my time with them but didn't really miss them either. So when American Reunion was announced I responded with a shrug and a sigh towards the news. It seemed like a good idea but I just didn't really care one way or the other about it. What I'm getting at here is that I am probably not the best person to judge whether or not this particular film works as a final chapter for these characters and because of that I suggest you take everything I am about to say about the film with a heaping amount of salt. Regardless of your feelings on how the film treats its legacy though, it doesn't quite reach that crescendo it needed in order to drum up the proper amount of nostalgia that would make most people appreciate it as a closing chapter on one of the more influential teen comedies from the past 15 years.
