It is enough to make one lament for misspent youth, for the teenagers who will buy tickets to PG-13 rated fare only to sneak into this rehash.

Exists exclusively because its forerunner made a lot of money -- and the lack of inspiration behind the movie shows in every frame.

It's a cheesy mixture of porn and corn.

What a portrait of young American manhood as a collective of hormone-addled schnooks -- effete, incapable, soft and doomed, a group of chuckleheads who couldn't find the sky without a sign that pointed up.

Jim and the gang feel like strangers, and their attempts to create an instant-party atmosphere and pull us into it, demanding we have fun with them, are a little creepy, even a tad sociopathic.

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

...the entire cast seems to have phoned in their parts, embarrassed to still be tethered to this pubescent rubbish...

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

Just another by-the-numbers, money-hungry sequel with a lot of recycled shaggy-sex jokes and gross-out gags.

It has all the essential ingredients -- same writer, same cast, same suburban Michigan setting -- but it's sour now, with the texture of soggy cardboard.

This second slice just isn't as deliciously naughty as the original piece.

With the raunch quotient cranked up several notches, the sequel is calculated, cynical and, worse, not funny.

To fill its depleted reservoir of jokes, Adam Herz's new script frequently tries to generate laughs simply by mentioning something from his old one.

Sorry, kids; this levee is dry.

The American Pie take on teenage sexuality is far more leering and prurient in its banana-peel fashion than the in-your-face voyeurism of Larry Clark's Bully.
