DVD and Blu-ray extras:
- 7 Deleted Scenes
- Gag Reel
- The “Reunion” Reunion: Re-Launching The Series: Go behind the scenes with Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein, and the rest of the original cast. They’ll reveal some of the unique challenges in reuniting the group, and reflect on moments from making the film.
- Jim’s Dad: From tweezing his infamous eyebrows to online dating, Jim’s dad slowly enters the singles’ scene with some help from Jim and Michelle.
- Ouch! My Balls!: While on set, Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, and many other members of the male cast started the unique hobby of “crotch-blasting”. See the spark of this unusual craze and its ensuing, widespread popularity.
- Audio commentary with co-directors/co-writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (available on both rated and unrated versions)
Blu-ray Exclusive bonus features:
- 13 Extended Scenes
- Alternate Takes
- The “Out Of Control” Track: Throughout the film, Jason Biggs, Sean William Scott, Alyson Hannigan and other cast members pop up on-screen to laugh at, comment and even cut on their fellow cast members.
- The Best Of Biggs - Hangin’ With Jason B.: A funny snapshot of life on the American Reunion set as cast and crew reflect on the hilarious experiences they have had working with Jason Biggs.
- Lake Bake: Facing scorching heat, page-after-page of script, and yes, even jet-ski stunts, a “day” at the beach stood as one of the production’s biggest challenges.
- Dancing With The Oz: Go behind the scenes of Oz’s memorable appearance on Celebrity Dance-off! Chris Klein discusses his killer moves, slick sweat suit, and what it took to realize this funny moment from the movie.
- American Gonad-Iators: The Fight Scene: One of the many ways American Reunion ups the ante is with a goofball throw down as the old dogs (Jim, Oz, and company) and the young bucks (AJ and his crew) go toe-to-toe in Great Falls. The filmmakers take us through what started as a simple line in the script – A fight ensues and the police show up – on to storyboards, crazy choreography, and a half-naked Jason Biggs.
- American Reunion Yearbook: An interactive yearbook of all of your favorite characters from the American Pie franchise. Select a character and get an overview of that character from the films with “Where Are They Now,” cast discussions about the characters, their most embarrassing moment and their favorite activities. A virtual yearbook of who’s who, what’s what and, most importantly, who did what to who!
