American Pie 2 [P&S] [Collector's Edition] [DVD] [2001]

This collector's edition release of American Pie 2 has a pair one major problem. The biggest issue is that the film is presented only in a pan-and-scan transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. Other than that, there is little to complain about. English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1, and a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 as well. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtracks are closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include commentary tracks recorded by members of the cast and crew, making-of featurettes, deleted scenes, outtakes, a music video, and clips from the screen tests for the original American Pie. This film is available in a different edition that contains all these extras as well as an anamorphic widescreen transfer. Also, although the version on this disc is the original R-rated cut, a different disc is available that contains additional footage that results in an "unrated" cut.

Synopsis

American Pie 2
The horny teen heroes of American Pie (1999) return for further raunchy antics in this comedy sequel written by the first film's creator, Adam Herz. Returning home following their freshman year of college, old friends Jim (Jason Biggs), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Oz (Chris Klein), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), and Stifler (Seann William Scott) rent a summer house on Lake Michigan where they hope to score romantically. However, complications ensue due to Jim's relative lack of experience, requiring an interlude with a fellow student and a visit to his old friend Michelle (Alyson Hanigan), who's now a band camp counselor, all in preparation for the return of Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth). In the meantime, Oz is separated from Heather (Mena Suvari) by a trip abroad, Finch has another encounter with Stifler's mom (Jennifer Coolidge), and Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) is as clueless as ever about his son's love life. Director J.B. Rogers served as first assistant director on the first film and made his directorial debut with Say It Isn't So (2001). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
