Overview

"Over ten hours of entertainment" the box copy exclaims, and that may be true -- if you are a very, very slow reader. Actually, you can save yourself the trouble of watching either American Pie or American Pie 2 by clicking into the "Your Favorite Piece of Pie Chapter" in the Bonus section of American Pie 2; it's a list of the ten best scenes, in their entireties, from both movies, thereby dispensing with the plots and secondary characters, which were theatrical padding and afterthoughts in the first place. There's also a "classic quotes" chapter, which includes the clip from the film of the character saying the memorable line. The bonuses on the sequel's disc include a gag reel of the actors cutting up on the set, a "making of" documentary showing the actors acting up on the set, outtakes of the actors...( you get the idea). No doubt, these kids had a ball making the movie; with all the cutting up, it's a wonder the movie got made at all. There also are deleted scenes (most of them are pointless), casting tapes of the principal actors from the original movie (shot on what looks like rather low-end video), commentaries, DVD-ROM features, the "Be Like That" music video featuring 3 Doors Down (along with musical highlights from the film), and text bios of the filmmakers and actors (read them slowly and you just might get that promised ten hours). The special features are unrated, so be prepared for a significant amount of profanity from those actors cutting up on the set.

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Even though they're now college dudes, fulfillment for fellas is still predicated on copping a feel and downing a brewski.
New York Times - A.O. Scott
The American Pie movies succeed where many other comedies aimed at the youth market falter: they manage to be both lewd and sweet, exploiting the natural prurience of young people while implicitly comforting their raging anxieties.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
...I had a good time at American Pie 2, maybe because the characters are broad comic types, well played; the movie feels some sympathy for their dilemmas, and because it's obsessed with sex.
Chicago Reader
The simple premise of one scene of table-turning voyeurism is brilliant. Lisa Alspector
