Storyline

Four high school friends plan to ride out their senior year taking easy classes, including a program for housing foreign exchange students and eventually all attending Ohio State. Hurdles befall each of the four: grades, higher aspirations, love. Is it the Foreign Exchange students that learn from their host or the hosts that do more of the learning? Written by danny roth

Long Larry: You're not Todd's kid are you?
Gordan 'Shantz' Lally: Uh, yeah, that's my Dad.
Long Larry: Well hell, I didn't recognize you without diapers on, buddy. You know, I got a warm spot in my heart for you. You see, my wife and I used to swing with your parents. I had my first man-on-man meat munch with your father, although, he did most of the munching, if you know what I mean.
Gordan 'Shantz' Lally: Huh?
Long Larry: Under the circumstances, I think I am gonna let you boys slide. You know how many times your dad took the dump truck from me. Talk about a wingman. Good ...

Terrible - Tries WAY too hard to be American Pie
18 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

I want my 80 minutes of life back, this movie tried so hard to be American Pie and pretty much every teen/sex/stoner comedy and ends up failing hard with a lot of unfunny, recycled/stolen jokes. Yes a guy shaves his pubes and suffers the consequences, just like in American Pie. Yes that's how awful it gets with blatantly trying to be other movies.

The characters were even worse, so blatantly ripped off and supposed to be teenagers but played by a bunch of 20-something year old nobodies who are still trying to get their careers started. There's the womanizing wild jock (gee sound familiar?) The innocent virgin guy waiting for the right one, the weird dad offering awkward sex advice to his son, the wild guy who wants to change for the right girl, the hot sex-crazed foreign exchange student, the stoner guy, etc etc. I think you already know where this is going.

I liked American Pie, 40 year old virgin, etc, I wasn't expecting a huge epic plot or anything, just to have a couple laughs, but I can't laugh at ripped off jokes and characters when it wasn't even a parody movie, and I can't even criticize it anymore because I've addressed pretty much everything and don't even think it deserves another paragraph. Don't even bother renting it.
