Re­heated pie

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

GET­TING the tim­ing of a re­union just right is a del­i­cate mat­ter. Have one too early and the scars of high school are too fresh to en­joy go­ing back. Leave it too long and you’re too em­bar­rassed by your muf­fin tops and bald spots to rock up. Thank­fully, the film­mak­ers of the Amer­i­can Pie fran­chise left it this long to re­unite all the orig­i­nal cast for theirs, which has the gang back in their home town for the event and a gen­eral get­to­gether a few days ear­lier which re­sults in lots of the se­ries’ gen­eral sexy busi­ness and bawdy be­hav­iour. The orig­i­nal film of­fered what has be­come the stan­dard blue­print for mod­ern, ‘‘ gross- out’’ teen- sex come­dies but now the cast as well as that blue­print are look­ing a bit long in the tooth. It’s tol­er­a­ble as a sort of last hur­rah ef­fort and some of the set- ups are hu­mor­ous and work well for the char­ac­ters, but it’s painfully sen­ti­men­tal and re­ally only a re­union that diehard fans should at­tend. Ex­tras: Deleted scenes and gag reel. NOT VIEWED.
