It's reunion number four with the guys from the Class of '99.
(WLTX) - It's been thirteen years since four sex-starved teenagers became men on prom night. Since then, they've all grown up...or tried to. Jim's leading the family life, Kevin is a house-husband, Finch is traveling the world and Oz is an unconvincing television sportscaster. They all have their own personal reasons for wanting to get together after all these years. But the biggest motive was probably the acting work.
Naturally, all of the ensemble reappears with primary supporting coverage on Stifler, his mom and Jim's dad. Good move too, because they're the funny ones in this thing. Seann William Scott may play just one note with his obnoxious portrayal of Steven Stifler - but he plays it so well that you could care less about anyone else. Meanwhile, the two elders combine their comedic chops for a happy ending you'll not likely forget.
Unfortunately, there are so many storylines that the random funniness is either lost or isolated. And (no surprise here) it's often some kind of vulgar prank that really pushes the boundaries. I'll confess to laughing out loud, just not as frequently as I'd hoped. The rest of the time was like a real reunion. It's a bunch of people you could care less about seeing again.
I've often longed for a sequel to "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" or "Dazed and Confused." But movies like this remind me that we're fortunate not to have them. Don't bother attending this reunion. Wait for the DVD and let it come to you.
