Another slice of the “American Pie” franchise isn’t exactly earning sweet reviews.

After 13 years and a couple of sequels, Jim, Oz, Stifler and the rest of the gang return for “American Reunion.” AP Movie Critic Christy Lemire sliced one and a half stars out of four for the sequel, writing: “`American Reunion’ relies on cliches about nostalgia and melodrama about the rekindling of first loves.”

Also opening this week is the documentary “Comic-Con: Episode IV _ A Fan’s Hope.” Lemire unleashed two stars out of four for director Morgan Spurlock’s look at the pop-culture extravaganza, writing: “If you have to ask what the title is a reference to, this movie is probably not for you; then again, even if you do get it, you won’t appreciate the film fully unless you’re already a member of the choir to which it’s preaching.”

Here’s a look at how these movies and others fared on the top review websites as of Friday afternoon. Each score is the percentage of positive reviews for the film:

_ “American Reunion”: Metacritic, 51; Movie Review Intelligence, 52.9; Rotten Tomatoes, 45. Average: 49.6.

_ “Comic-Con: Episode IV _ A Fan’s Hope”: Metacritic, 67; Movie Review Intelligence, 70.6; Rotten Tomatoes, 78. Average: 71.8.

_ “The Hunter”: Metacritic, 64; Movie Review Intelligence, 62.7; Rotten Tomatoes, 76. Average: 67.5.
