Taking a page from the fourth Fast and the Furious movie, Universal tried to revive the flatlining American Pie series by reuniting all of the original cast members, up to and including Tara Reid. But this forced, unfunny reunion did little to reignite our affection for the franchise; if anything, we came away from the movie never wanting to see any of these folks ever again.
What It Was: Only the best high school football flick not named Friday Night Lights! In his second-most iconic role, James Van Der Beek starred as John Moxon, the Matt Saracen-esque second-string quarterback who takes the field after the number one QB (Paul Walker) gets injured. Instead of fatherly coach Eric Taylor, though, Mox and the rest of the team has to play under the dominating hand of hard-ass Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight).
What The Reunion Could Be: Remember how Mox famously stated that he didn’t want his father’s life? Well, he’s put as much distance between himself and the old man as possible, graduating from Brown University and moving to Boston, where he launched his own line of whipped cream. But then word comes that Kilmer has died and he’s lured back to Texas for the memorial service and re-encounters all his old teammates as well as former cheerleader, Darcy Sears.
Chances of It Happening: While Van Der Beek is always game to spoof his past projects, we’re not sure he’d ever agree to do a straight sequel to Blues. On the other hand, the money would probably be decent and we have a feeling that Don’t Trust the B—— in Apt 23 may not see a second season (too bad… it’s pretty funny).
