A mildly amusing spoof
21 March 2004 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Max must solve the mathematical equation for "getting nookie" in this spoof short combining elements of "Pi" and "American Pie" does boast a chuckle or two, but for a short thats only a tad over nine minutes some of the jokes take too long to play out. The acting is OK by all, but I can't help but feel this was more miss then hit. With that said the film is STILL miles better then both the writers previous full-length teen spoof "Not Another Teen Movie". The fact that a barely 10 minute short is far better then a 90 minute one is not an endoresment of this former, just a condemnation of the latter.

My Grade: C
