American Pie 2 Review


Excellent
The gang from American Pie is back in American Pie 2, or, I Still Know What You Screwed Last Summer. The immortal pie, of course, is gone, but there are plenty of foreign objects and luscious ladies to occupy the genitalia of the entire cast for a full hour and a half.

After reinventing the sex comedy in 1999's American Pie, AP2 had a high bar to live up to, and miraculously, it has done so.

American Pie Review


Excellent
This is certainly the year for comedy, with South Park, Austin Powers 2, and now American Pie making the last month alone nothing short of a gut buster.

With all the sophistication of Porky's 2, American Pie is a teen sex comedy (and was originally titled as such) that leaves taste and sophistication at the door and goes straight for the comedic jugular. The highest-of-concepts plot is simple: Four high school virgins vow to lose their virginity by the end of school, and the prom is only three weeks away. Plots and schemes are hatched out the yin-yang.
