Even as the big day draws closer for the American Reunion, we’re still a bit shocked that this thing is actually happening. And not in a pleasant way, but more like the same sort of surprise one would have if Lindsay Lohan got her act together and cleaned up.

First there was a poster, and then a trailer, and still, it was like, this thing can’t be happening, can it? Yes, yes it can. Universal spent $50 million making this thing, so you know they’ll do whatever they can to make sure people are in the theaters on April 6, 2012.

That means they’ve rolled out a raunchy redband trailer featuring the pie-humper and the band dork navigating the landmines of a boring, sexless marriage by each trying to sneakily masturbate.

The most worrisome aspect of this trailer is that after a full decade, the lesson learned from the first movie’s unexpected success seems to be gross-out humor is in demand. Not that audiences fell for the heart of identifiable characters, but that pie-humping is funny. It is, but only because we felt really bad for Jim and his hapless sex life.

Can a teen sex comedy translate to adults? Maybe. Though it’s a bit weird to watch Jim masturbate and get caught by his kid. Still, we’re hoping the gang from East Great Falls can redeem the franchise that’s been beaten like a dead prostitute horse.
