American pie 2

Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

Get ready for another slice of the pie!

After a year apart - attending different schools, meeting different people - the guys rent a beach house and vow to make this the best summer ever. As it turns out, whether that will happen or not has a lot to do with the girls. Between the wild parties, outrageous revelations and yes, a trip to band camp, they discover that times change and people change, but in the end, it's all about sticking together.

Theatrical report

American pie 90210.

And his first ever golden shower, faked, of course, but... well, I THINK it was faked. It would depend on whatever Seann William is into. And on the MILF dude's bladder. But that's enough of that, on with the review.

With a running time of one hour and 45 minutes, this sequel is 12 minutes too long. There are times when it actually drags, a big no-no for a film with a target audience of teenagers (who have attention spans as long as their favourite TV commercial). Even for a "more is better" critic such as me, there was too much movie.

Meanwhile, most of the characters have been increased in size, following Hollywood sequel theory number 47: more is more. Stifler is a hugely obnoxious jerk instead of just a jerk: every second word that comes out of his mouth is offensive and every second thing he does is annoying. Michelle (flute girl) is so geeky that she could form her own band all by herself. Even Jim's dad gets more screen time; did they have a survey to find out which were the audience's favourite characters and write bigger parts for them?

Following so closely the script of the original, there is an embarrassing scene for Jim, a big party, a babe chasing a geek and Kevin having troubles with his relationship. Yeesh. American pie 2 is like plain popcorn: filling but bland.
