From Universal Studios Home Entertainment: American Reunion

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OVERVIEW: The entire cast of American Pie returns to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion in the outrageous comedy American Reunion, available on Blu-ray(TM) Combo Pack, DVD, and On Demand, with a never-before-seen unrated version, on July 10, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. In one long-overdue weekend, old friends will reconnect, old flames re-ignite and everyone will rediscover just how much fun you can pack into one hilarious weekend.

It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim (Jason Biggs, Life Happens, "Mad Love") and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan, "How I Met Your Mother") got married while Stifler (Seann William Scott, Role Models) still refuses to grow up. Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas, Please Give) and Vicky (Tara Reid, "Scrubs") said goodbye while Oz (Chris Klein, American Dreamz) and Heather (Mena Suvari, "American Horror Story") grew apart. Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas, "How to Make It in America") still longs for Stifler's mom (Jennifer Coolidge, Legally Blonde) and Jim's dad (Eugene Levy, Best in Show) is learning to date. The hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend return as American Reunion brings this beloved franchise back with "flat out hilarious, raunchy fun" (Pete Hammond, Box Office Magazine).
