Trivia

[1:04:11]In the scene where Rob first takes the check out slips out of the book to find that creator of the Bible (Noah Levenstein), you'll notice that one of the cards has highlighted characters from past American Pie films names written on it. These names include Jim Levenstein, Kevin Myers, Chris Ostreicher, Steve Stiffler, Dwight Stiffler, Matt Stiffler and Eric Stiffler. Similarly, the names below Noah Levensteins name include multiple 'Book of Love' crew members and production members. See more »

Goofs

East Great Falls is supposed to be in Michigan, but they drive to a Canadian border crossing that is not over a bridge or through a tunnel. None of the border crossings in Michigan look like that one. Additionally, they go to a ski resort in Canada with a Gondola, and there are no resorts of that nature near Michigan as there are no mountains that size in Southern Ontario. These features suggest British Columbia, and the frequency of the French Language suggests Quebec - neither of which are anywhere near Michigan. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Levenstein: [1:09:27] This is not a sex manual. It is a life manual. I've been married for 35 years, and not just because I'm this handsome dude who knows how to satisfy a woman. I've been married for 35 years because I love my wife and I respect my wife. Whether it's Amsterdam or East Great Falls it all comes down to this: If you're honest and treat a girl with respect then whatever happens is meant to happen because it's all perfectly natural. Boys, I've prepared you for this quest. And before you lies ...

American Pie presents: Snore fest 2009
1 January 2010 | by Mash-the-stampedeSee all my reviews

Hmmmmm.....it finally happened. The "American Pie" franchise got beaten to death, succumbing to it's inevitable demise with this tired, bored, stupified pathetic excuse for a film "The Book of Love".

Now before I go any further, I have to express that I am indeed an "American Pie" fan and enjoy all the films so far even the straight to DVD released ones of the past few years.

So naturally when I heard of the 7th film's release I was eager to sit back, relax and enjoy some more mindless potty humour and enjoy a few laughs....sadly, there were only a FEW laughs to be had as in I believe there were 2 scenes I found funny. I won't ruin those scenes for anyone who still feels the need to watch this film but I'll just say they involved a women's underwear department store and the other some old ladies false teeth!

The rest of the film relies on tired old jokes from the previous six films which by now aren't funny and are slightly altered to appear fresh and original but just end up falling flat and leave the viewer wondering if they were supposed to laugh or not.

The acting in this film is absolutely atrocious but no surprises there as the only relevant actors in the film were Rosanna Arquette and Eugene Levy who stole every scene he was in. Too bad his scene's were so short that his role was more like a cameo role which is a major shame but I guess this film was done on no budget and what little money they did have was used to pay Mr Levy for the one day of shooting he did for this film.

The characters this time round just weren't memorable and although I just watched the film lat night...I'm struggling to remember any one character's name!

The new "Stifler" was average too and without a string Stifler....what can you expect to get out of a so called "American Pie" film?

The film tries desperately to avoid boredom and throws in many pointless cameos from Hollywood Caleb's such as Bret Michals which just aren't funny!

I think I'll skip adding this one to my collection!

I'm nearly done complaining but before I wrap up....I would like to mention that it's a real shame this film is the one released 10 years after the original. If I was a rich Hollywood movie director/ writer...I would do a film about the original group getting together ten years later to celebrate their High School reunion! Think about how funny that film could be! See how all the characters turned out ten years after high school and what hilarious scenes could unfold if they all end up really drunk at their reunion? Will any old flames be re-ignited? Will Stifler still be an immature horn-bag? Will anyone shag a pie??? And the movie could be called; "American Pie: High School Reunion".

Now that sounds like an "American Pie" film that people would want to see!!!!

Please stop the straight to DVD releases!!!!
