Stifler Aims For Statutory Rape in the New ‘American Reunion’ Trailer

By  · Published on November 1st, 2011

How do you score beach partying high school girls (played by 25-year-olds)? Pretend to love everything Twilight. These and other important life lessons are brought to us all by the new trailer for American Reunion.

I was as surprised as anyone to see that their teaser trailer was, no joke, actually funny. It had a sense of humor and nostalgia about what made the comedy work, and proved that it could work even though we were all way past the awkward adolescence. At least numerical.

The first full (bro-centric) trailer offers a look at getting the band back together, and it’s honestly kind of nice to see (most) everyone back in their old element. Writer/directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have clearly instilled some life into an otherwise empty cash grab, but there’s also something hauntingly desperate about going back to the well that’s mirrored by going back to your high school cafetorium to drink bad punch and get jiggy with people of the past.

Would you go see it?
