Movie review: "American Reunion"

Let's face it, "American Pie" made everyone laugh at some point.. even if it was just a little..the silly humor and stupid jokes were somewhat funny..
So based on the "somewhat funny" reputation of the American Pie movies, we went to see "American Reunion" last night, which is a movie about the 13th year high school reunion of the American Pie crowd...(it is briefly explained in the movie, that the class of 99 missed the 10-year mark by a few years!)
In the movie, all of the main characters have grown and evolved into adults who actually have lives and responsibilities... some of them are even married and have kids now..
I can't say the movie is funny because it's not.. at all!..but seeing all of the characters together again is somewhat appealing...
The story, however, is very lame and lacks depth and detail..the message lies on the idea that the high school years are long gone and life changes for the better...
There's way too much foul language for my taste and I think the F bomb gets dropped way too many times...There's also way too much nudity and obscenity, but I guess that's expected from the American Pie franchise, right?...well, I should have thought of that BEFORE going in to this movie...
All in all, I'd give this movie 2 out of 5 stars and if I could go back in time, I'd probably save the $10 I spent on the movie ticket!
So, in other words, wait until this movie comes out on TV!
