First Look At American Pie 4: American Reunion

I love the photo booth trailer, watch the video above.  It's a brilliant piece of promotion showing me little but telling the emotional story of the next American Pie move American Reunion.  I get a wonderful sense of nostalgia when watching this trailer.

When the American Pie movies first hit the scene I underestimated it presuming the movie to be throwaway entertainment and hoping to maybe get a laugh out of it through crass humor.  Much to my delight I was very wrong.  The series has it's low brow humor, which is also very funny, but it also has a brilliant insight on life, friend and growing up.  It's predecessors were also well done with American Pie 3 American Wedding really bringing the quality back that the first movie had. 

 

I'm really looking forward to watching American Pie 4: American Reunion. 

Plot:  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 after a decade has passed these lifelong friends have come home as adults for a long-overdue weekend to reminisce about—and get inspired by—the hormonal teens from long ago.  They will discover what has changed, who hasn't and that time and distance can't break the bonds of friendship.  (Wikipedia)

American Pie 4: American Family

Universal Pictures is looking to bring the American Pie franchise back to the big screen, but not as a reboot, but a fourth film in the series featuring the cast of characters from the original trilogy.

I really liked the original 3 American Pie movies.  They struck a wonderful balance between being a silly comedy and an exploration of sexuality and relationships relevant to our current society.  A forth movie could be great since we have so far explored first times, college, and the wedding day.

My vote for the name is on American Pie 4: American Family.  I would love for them to explore the family and life after the wedding.

What would you want to see in American Pie Four?
