One thing you can always count on from the American Pie franchise (even the direct-to-DVD installments) is that raunchy gags and crude humor will always be offered in copious amounts. That's certainly the case with the latest theatrical entry in the series, titled American Reunion.
The American Reunion red band teaser amounted to an excerpt from what is surely just one of several R-Rated comedy setups in the film, while the safe-for-work teaser provided a better mix of heart and humor. Today, we have an international trailer that features more naughty jokes in all their adults-only glory.
American Reunion picks up in quasi-real time with the original American Pie characters, who are now all grown up and "mature," but also ready to cut loose and be wild once more, when their 10-year high school reunion rolls around. That means more wackiness with married couple Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), along with Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Vicky (Tara Reid), Oz (Chris Klein), Heather (Mena Suvari), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) and Stifler (Seann William Scott). Not to mention, the new potential pairing of Jim's bumbling dad (Eugene Levy) and Stifler's "saucy" mom (Jennifer Coolidge).
Take heed - the new American Reunion international trailer is NSFW and features partial nudity from not only a couple of bikini-clad babes, but also both Stifler and especially Jim. Consider yourselves warned...
Harold & Kumar franchise writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg handled both scripting and directing duties on American Reunion, so you know there will be plenty more in the way of nasty bathroom humor and sex-related jokes that aren't included in the film's early trailers. However, it's hard not to suspect that Hurwitz and Schlossberg will fall short with American Reunion, when it comes to balancing out the crude humor with sentiment and heartfelt character beats. Not to mention, the non-R-Rated jokes glimpsed so far all seem on a par with your average modern-day sitcom.
All the same: if you enjoyed the previous (theatrically-released) American Pie sequels, then American Reunion should be right up your alley - even if it does fail to be as funny and/or touching as its predecessors.
American Reunion will hit theaters in the U.S. on April 6th, 2012.
