What do you say about the sequel to a really corny and cliched coming of age comedy? This is more of the same stuff, just slightly better looking. I'm glad they got out of the high school stage, but this is not a better movie by any stretch. It's almost like they staged a really dumb way to have a bunch of moronic friends get back together and show lots of nudity and sex. It's incredibly trashy and stupid, but if that's your thing then you should find it to be a goldmine.

Wasn't quite old enough to see this in the theater, everybody my age was trying to sneak into American Pie and the sequel. Both movies try to be realistic dealing with the attitudes of the typical high school senior or college freshman in Michigan of all places, focusing on the sexual aspect of the male persona. I like the second as much as the first one. Might not be as memorable and doesn't have the Blink 182 cameo but it does have the "superglue myself to myself" scene. Enjoyable comedy.

The continuing adventures of five horny guys - this time at the beach after a year of university. There is not much difference between this and Pie 1. Alyson Hannigan is still cute.
