Movie Info

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,

Had director J.B. Rogers simply stuck to the sex jokes and not tried to redeem them, he'd have made a more honest film.

A slipshod sequel that looks tossed together over a weekend by people who couldn't care less.

Rogers's feeble attempt to ape the Farrellys' gross/sad/funny dialectic falls flat.

Less a movie than another efficient moneymaking machine for Universal Pictures, American Pie 2 is a remarkably boring comedy.

Sure it's a sequel, but Pie 2 reprises most of the spirit of the first movie.

Our second encounter with the Class of '99 is unashamedly similar to (but way slicker than) its predecessor.

just doesn't have the story and character charm behind it that the original film did

Better than #1 but still raunchy. Teens love it.

While it delivers a decent number of laughs, this second serving of Pie still tastes too much like the first.

I'll keep coming back for the ride until it stops being fun. I just hope it doesn't go as far as AMERICAN PIE 9 - THE MIDLIFE CRISIS.

Fans of the first one will come away tasting soggy reheat, not this year's new improved recipe.

There is a bright side. None of us will live long enough to hear a future historian say, 'And that's how a civilization was doomed by a warm apple pie.'

...even though the majority of the jokes fail completely, the movie still manages to be entertaining enough to be considered an inoffensive time-waster...

It's all about sex again, but, like the first movie, it handles it with a sense of balance between the lewdness and the awkwardness of the subject.

The gags are rude and crude, but they never bail out in fear of offending, and frankly, it's funny.

Audience Reviews for American Pie 2

The second slice is a much-more-disgustingly-humorous piece with less of the coming-of-age tone that the first installment provided. American Pie 2, though unnecessary, still is a fair portion to experience. 4/5

I love revisiting movies I haven't seen in years, as it's like a whole new experience. I have forgotten so much about this movie, but remembered enough to have an old friend feeling when watching. Picks up the summer after their first year of college and they guys, along with Stifler, get a lake house to have one big huge Summer end party. All sorts of hijinks, raunchy sexcapades, and fantastic heartfelt humor fill this sequel. Not quite as good as the first, but still much better than most sequels, and probably better than it should be. All the performances are perfect, especially Stifler(Sean William Scott), Finch(Eddie Kaye Thomas), and Jim(Jason Biggs). Those three really shine above everyone else. Side note, didn't realize I use some quotes from this movie all the time and I had completely forgotten they came from here("Here's an idea, I'll get you a spoon so you can eat my a**"..Bob outta like that). Great movie, full of laughs, and an absolute must for anyone who likes the first, or just like to laugh in general.

More of the same with one difference: they are college men now - like it matters. It follows the same formula but the gags are more stupid than funny, looking like a cheap rehash and with very little to make us laugh like the first movie.
