As a fan of coming-of-age, underdog comedies the 5-6 year period following the American Pie release in the late 90s was a great time for me. This movie tips the hat to that era perfectly, but the beautiful cinematography (yeah, REALLY!) brings it into the modern day, along with the bet revolving around a relic from that era itself - the movie rental store. The cameos are great as you'd expect from lifelong entertainers, however the main cast are all so good that putting an icon like Jake The Snake amongst them doesn't seem out of place. Everyone has great chemistry throughout, and perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that it's not all boobs and dick jokes like 90% of those that followed American Pie. It has real heart to it and the lead actors are so likable that you find yourself rooting for their characters by the time the credits roll, despite participating in an ethically questionable bet.
