Definitely a Sequel
11 August 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

If a movie does well enough to get a sequel, you would think that means the writers are good enough to come up with more material, no problem. With this movie, though, they didn't.

American Pie 2 was probably the weakest of sequels in a summer full of sequels. The jokes are the same, maybe changed just a little. The characters have nothing no new motivations- they are all just battling the same things as in the first movie. From Stifler's mom to parents catching Jim in personal moments, the sequel steals, er, "borrows" from American Pie 1 without a second thought.

The result? One dumb movie. First of all, Jason Biggs (Jim) is horrible to watch. You just want to punch him for being so stupid. The scene where he plays the trombone? Not the least bit funny. People laughed- WHY? Finch is annoying as ever, constantly speaking like he is 50- not in a funny way- but in a really bothersome way that sees him featured for a good part of the movie when he is better as a supporting character- a very small supporting character. Kevin is a pointless character, he doesn't do anything except talk to his old girlfriend Vicki the whole time, constantly asking her to "Catch up and hang out." This also means Vicky is a waste of time, as is Oz, who somehow became a complete neutered male from the beginning of the first film. He is an entirely different person even from the end of that one- does anyone care? Jessica and Heather- great to see people from the first one, but do they add anything? No.

The only thing this movie does is play Stifler well. He essentially has to strap the movie on his back and carry it because everyone else is boring. How does he do this? He says the F-word- a lot. This even loses humor after 50 times, so by the end you wish you never spent the 6.50 to watch this junk. The worst part is when the opening scene runs and people have seen the previews and still laugh very hard- why, people? It doesn't make sense. Out of all of the scenes in the movie the audience has definitely seen that before.

AND YET, between the predictable script, the rerun jokes, the low brow bail out humor (guys kissing, football down low, little kid swearing, monkey drinking alcohol), and the painful acting of Jason Biggs, American pie 2 will somehow make a lot of money. It makes you wonder....

IF they make a third one, I hope they invest a little time in writing characters that we care about and get rid of characters we don't (Shermanator, Jessica, etc.). Be new and inventive, just don't insult us by showing us the first movie with a different title. 1.5 STARS
