American Pie 2 [WS] [Collector's Edition] [Unrated] [DVD] [2001]

"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.

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
