American Reunion

(R) ★★☆☆☆

The original cast returns for yet another installment in the American Pie series, only this time the crew is older, less sexed and not really that funny. A high-school reunion brings together Jim (Jason Biggs) and his band-camp wife (Alyson Hannigan), Stifler (Seann William Scott), sportscaster Oz (Chris Klein) and that other guy (Thomas Ian Nicholas). The plot you know, even if you don’t. Now and then the movie rouses itself to deliver.

(PG) ★★☆☆☆ This more-of-the-same sequel lacks inspiration or zest in storytelling, performance or action. Perseus (Sam Worthington) is now a widower and single father, having given up soldiering until a multi-headed creature invades his village and he must reveal the powers he possesses as half man, half god. His father, Zeus (Liam Neeson), is himself engaged in battle with his brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and full-god son Ares (Édgar Ramirez). Most of this film feels off.
