Sweet Potato Pie was pretty much a blatant and unfunny rip-off of American Pie, right down to the obligatory pie-humping scene. This movie could have been better, perhaps if the Wayans Brothers were doing it but this felt like it was a college project on Amateur Hour or something.
The plot is even nearly identical. Three guys, who happen to be virgins decide they are ready to lose their virginity and are willing to do almost anything to make it happen. Chuck (Clabron Hinkles), Perry (Marc 7) and Trey (Jason Rossow) try everything from calling up a porn director they know and getting a tryout to paying a stripper to trying to get a "happy ending" from a masseuse. Needless to say, they seem to screw things up, sometimes in an embarrassing way. Just to clarify, even with the pie-humping, Clabron Hinkles is no Jason Biggs with his comedic timing.
Sweet Potato Pie had very few redeeming qualities and I was reluctant to rate it as high as I did but the fact is, I have still seen movies that are worse. MUCH worse and that's why I rate it a low 4/10 while recommending you pass this one by.
