Another slice of American Pie. Older teens only.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is an exuberantly outrageous movie with humor that is good-hearted but extremely explicit. There are jokes about every body part and function and about every kind of sexual practice, heterosexual and homosexual, including oral sex, mild S&M, and the use of sex toys. The language is extremely strong, with nonstop swearwords and exceptionally explicit sexual references. A character moons the others. A character has sex with someone thinking it is someone else. Stifler once again ingests a substance for gross-out effect. There is social drinking. The issue of religious intermarriage is raised when one family member objects, but everyone else is completely supportive.

Rotten: The "American Pie" franchise throws in another kitchen sink of gross-out sight gags by screenwriter Adam Herz ("American Pie" 1 and 2) in this third, and hopefully final installment, of percolating testosterone commotion.

Slightly better than the other two because they eased out the Jason Biggs and and moved in the far more interesting character, Stiffler. At least this one is just so weird that you can bask in its shear stupidity. It's almost more soft core porn rather than film, but it's kind've what they were building up to in the last two.
