‘American Reunion’ Is a Nostalgic Love-festPosted In: Uncategorized

The gang is back!  After almost a decade of absence Jim, Kevin, Oz, Finch, and of course Stifler are finally heading back to the big screen.  On the surface these films may not seem much like a romance, but the true heart of the series is in the relationships that help these characters grow.  In 2003’s American Wedding, Jim tied the knot with Michelle, proving that this series is all about romance.  Now, in American Reunion, the entire cast of the 1999 original is back for their high school reunion.  Old flames reunite and long term relationships are tested.  But all in all, this film is going to be a lot of fun and a great slice of nostalgia for everyone who grew up with these classic characters.
