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.

Get ready as the class of 1999 gets set for their 13th year reunion, it's really hard to believe it's been that long. The film gets us caught up on what life has been like for everyone, I thought the filmmakers did a great job placing the characters into adulthood and leaving Stifler his same old obnoxious, lovable self.

To be honest I really didn't expect this to be all that good considering how long it's been since the original but I was pleasantly surprised. The film has plenty of the same raunchy humor we have all come to expect from the series but it also has a feeling of nostalgia as well. The story wants to be a bit sentimental towards the end which it does while still maintaining that comic edge we all grew to love.

If you're a fan of the original films then you are going to fall in love all over again with the characters and their zany personalities. It was great to see all the original cast members back and I hope this isn't going to be the last we hear from the class of 1999.

The “Reunion” Reunion: Re-launching the Series: Go behind the scenes with Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein, and the rest of the original cast. They’ll reveal some of the unique challenges in reuniting the group, and reflect on moments from making the film.

Jim’s Dad: From tweezing his infamous eyebrows to online dating, Jim’s dad slowly enters the singles’ scene with some help from Jim and Michelle.

Ouch! My Balls!: While on set, Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, and many other members of the male cast started the unique hobby of “crotch-blasting”. See the spark of this unusual craze and its ensuing, widespread popularity.

The “Out Of Control” Track: Throughout the film, Jason Biggs, Sean William Scott, Alyson Hannigan and other cast members pop up on-screen to laugh at, comment and even cut on their fellow cast members.

The Best of Biggs - Hangin’ with Jason B.: A funny snapshot of life on the American Reunion set as cast and crew reflect on the hilarious experiences they have had working with Jason Biggs.

Lake Bake: Facing scorching heat, page-after-page of script, and yes, even jet-ski stunts, a “day” at the beach stood as one of the production’s biggest challenges.

Dancing with The Oz: Go behind the scenes of Oz’s memorable appearance on Celebrity Dance-off! Chris Klein discusses his killer moves, slick sweat suit, and what it took to realize this funny moment from the movie.

American Gonad-iators: The Fight Scene: One of the many ways American Reunion ups the ante is with a goofball throw down as the old dogs (Jim, Oz, and company) and the young bucks (AJ and his crew) go toe-to-toe in Great Falls. The filmmakers take us through what started as a simple line in the script – A fight ensues and the police show up – on to storyboards, crazy choreography, and a half-naked Jason Biggs.
