American Pie 2

( 12 )

Overview

Those wacky sex-starved teens from American Pie are back for a second helping in the raunchy American Pie 2. Universal has done a very nice job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Except for a smidgen of edge enhancement, this transfer looks very well rendered and even. The colors all appear bright and bold without any color bleeding or digital artifacting popping up anywhere.

Overview

Those wacky sex-starved teens from American Pie are back for a second helping in the raunchy American Pie 2. Universal has done a very nice job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Except for a smidgen of edge enhancement, this transfer looks very well rendered and even. The colors all appear bright and bold without any color bleeding or digital artifacting popping up anywhere. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 as well as DTS Surround in English. Both of these tracks sound good, though surround sounds are generally focused on background noise or bass-thumping rock songs. All aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music are clear of any distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc are English and French subtitles. Much like the original American Pie, this sequel includes a multitude of extra features. To start with, there are four commentaries: one by director J.B. Rogers, a second by screenwriter Adam Herz, a third by cast members Jason Biggs, Mena Suvari, and Thomas Ian Nicholas, and a fourth by actor Eddie Kay Thomas. Each of these tracks includes a lot of information about the making of the film, both technical and storywise, and are a lot of fun with the cast members having a great time throughout. Next up are some outtakes that are about five minutes long. Some original casting tapes are included that show six of the cast members auditioning for their roles, and seven deleted scenes edited together feature some extra material never seen by the public. "The Baking of American Pie" is a 24-minute featurette that is basically one big promotional short for the movie. "Good Times With the Cast and Crew" is a short without narration that takes a look at the actors having fun behind the scenes. A music-highlights section offers the viewer the chance to jump to their favorite song in the movie, while "Your Favorite Piece of Pie" includes the top ten scenes from both films as voted on by the fans on the web (each scene can be viewed). "Classic Quotes" offers 15 choices of favorite lines from the film. Finally there is a trailer with a funny introduction by star Jason Biggs as well as a trailer for The Bourne Identity, some production notes, cast and filmmaker information, an invite for the Universal DVD newsletter, a music video for the song "Be Like That" by 3 Doors Down, as well as some special offers (commercials) and some DVD-ROM content. There are also multiple versions of this movie available, including an R-rated version, an "Unrated" version with extra footage, and a pan-and-scan full-frame version. Overall, this is a very packed "pie" that should please fans of the series.

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

    Very Funny!

    I rented this one and it was so funny! I loved the first one too. Even though it has nothing educational about it, it is still some good entertainment!

    Don't waste your money

    Don't waste your money on this movie. It's stupid and it has a plot as bad as ''Dude Where's My Car?''. It's a terrible piece of garbage. All it's about is a bunch of teenagers obsessed with sex. It's humor is crude and it makes absolutely no sense to anything. My advice: Don't buy it. Buy something else like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

    two thumbs up!!

    this is one of the best movies! it is so hilarious. the movie would not be good if it didn't have jason biggs and seann william scott in it. i will tell you one thing, i don't recommend this to any younger kids because it is very sexual. but what i thought was really funny when jim was masturbating and he thought he was using a lubricant but it was super glue. his hand got glued on his you know what. lol.

    Awesome Film

    This is one of my favorite movies of the year. I don't know anyone who has seen it and not liked it. If you are looking for a movie that is hilarious and has horny teenagers this is the film for you. This movie is about a group of teens that have just finished their first year of college and they just want to have fun. So they rent a cabin for the summer. This movie really captures what teens really want and what they do to get it.
