Direct to DVD sequel to American Psycho, American Psycho 2 is unrelated to the first; but is kind of easy to see why this film is viewed as a sequel. This one doesn't deliver, and personally I think that it was pointless to make this film as it has nothing to offer. The film has poor acting, the cast is horrible, the story is bad and the directing is sloppy. American Psycho 2 contains all the traditional elements of a straight to DVD title. The film also has miscast roles including William Shatner as the professor and Mila Kunis. I felt that nothing really clicked, and the film was simply bizarre. As far as I'm concerned, American Psycho was a perfect stand alone film that had plenty of unnerving and disturbing elements. The film is sloppy with no effort in trying to create something watchable. The film simply tried to cash in on the success of the first by using rehashed ideas, This film insults Bret Easton Ellis who wrote the book. Fans of American Psycho should pass up on this at all costs as it is a poorly crafted film with no good payoff or story for that matter. While American Psycho had great psychological horror elements that really made it a disturbing film to watch, this film lacks those elements and it just doesn't deliver. This an awful train wreck of a film that will displease fans of American Psycho. The film is one of the worst sequels that I've seen, and being straight to DVD it's no mystery why. Sequels like this should give film studio a clue not to invest money into garbage like this.

Well this certainly sucked... Just a bad movie. Nothing like the original (not that I expected it to be but you know...they could have tried...) and to top it all off....bad acting as well. Thumbs up!

Rachael's Mom: Sweet Jesus, it smelled like someone died in here!

After just watching the original American Psycho and loving it; my curiosity got the best of me and I watched this piece of crap. Why they made a sequel; I don't know. This movie probably would have been better if it had no connections to American Psycho. American Psycho II: All American Girl tries to be funny, but it's just lame. The narration from Mila Kunis is piss poor as is her performance. How she went from this to Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Black Swan is pretty incredible. Obviously Lionsgate looked at this as a potential money grabber, cashing in on the first. Maybe if they had tried to make something that made sense in connection to the first; this would have worked better. But when it's all said and done, this is just endless garbage from start to finish. The ending is totally unbelievable and completely moronic. This really didn't deserved to be made.

I pretty enjoyed this Movie. I have to buy it on DVD. In spite of all she did ones she leaves behind like "the mum in the movie: serial mom" in a twisted kind of way I sympathised the character of Rachael(Mila Kunis) I wish there was a sequel:((

I actually enjoyed this more than the original. It was so wrong on so many levels which kept me entertained. Although there wasn't a scene like in the first one that could make me laugh so hard like Patrick Bateman killing to Huey Lewis and the News.

There wasn't anything really American about this girl. The setting was no longer classy New York, and was a quiet college town and dorm. It had that made-in-Canada vibe to it. The storytelling felt very much like an afterschool special. I was curious they didn't investigate many of the missing students; especially the boy from the powerful family. It was nice seeing William Shatner, but he didn't bring much of his fun energy to his professor character. I really liked the extreme snobbish edge the original American Psycho had; none of it was here. Mila Kunis was confident and quirky in her role as the next American Psycho, but did not seem to have the powerful coldness of Patrick Bateman which Christian Bale made so memorable. Her connections to the first American Psycho were a terrible stretch. Gore was pretty tame in most of the killings, we saw some of the after-effects in flashbacks later, but it would've been nice to see the visciousness of the actual deaths. The restaurant scene was interesting when Rachel and her parents encountered her psychologist Dr. Daniels and his mother. It got quite meandering once spring break started and there were no more students to kill. There were some effective corpse-in-the-closet effects. The end chase supplied a bit of action. Overall, this movie is weak.

Mila Kunis stars in the campy, lighthearted horror film American Psycho II: All American Girl. Desperate to get a TA position with a prestigious college professor, criminology student Rachael Newman proceeds to kill off her competition. Kunis gives a solid performance, and is especially good at delivering the dark comedy. And though the plot's fairly predictable, it uses the tropes and clichés of the genre rather well. Still, the film tries to be a little too clever at times, and the violence and gore is quite tame. Yet despite its problems, American Psycho II: All American Girl is an entertaining slasher film.

Lacking any of the thrills from the original, this straight-to-DVD sequel is a kill-fest really only kept alive by the sexy Mila Kunis, whose sex appeal is not used to the advantage of the film. Coming off much like the sexy thrillers in Poison Ivy, but without any actual sexiness. Not even William Shatner could add anything to this film.

Well, if they did not want to have this movie compared to American Psycho, they shouldn't have named it American Psycho 2. So here goes. First I have to talk about the title. I can't see how this movie can be linked with the American Psycho movie, this should have been a entirely different psycho movie, like 'Psycho girl' or something. The only connection this movie has to the original one is the very short scene where Rachael kills a person from the first movie. This scene could've easily been left out, because it has no relevancy to the story. The movie itself was just ok and very predictable. It did not have the same amount of quirkiness and it was not nearly as interesting and catchy as the original American Psycho movie. The movie is about a girl who wants to gain employment at the FBI and she is willing to do anything and kill anyone who gets in her way. The movie was a tad cheesy and reminded me about all the stereotypical teen horror movies from the 90's.

Um...Didn't like it. It intrigued me, but I didn't find it to be a good movie at all. Only if you're at your house, bored, watch it through cable...

Almost completely unrelated to American Psycho. Mila Kunis stars in this disaster of a film about a psychopathic girl who killed Patrick Bateman and became a serial killer. Her dream is to work in FBI and "help people", however, she believes she needs to become the teaching assistant at her college to do so, she'll do anything to get the job.

The premise was ridiculous and I was truly disappointed to see Kunis doing her worst performance ever. The twist wasn't too hard to get either, it's dull and pathetic.

Sometimes you get the unexpected. I had this tagged as "not interested," but sometimes you can't avoid what Encore offers you. In the end, this was a very watchable, diverting, and even darkly humorous DTV offering.

Normally the DTV, or Direct-To-Video, label signals low-budget, often poorly-made movies, or non-theatrical sequels of marginally successful films. Someimes, as with the "Cube" series, these DTV efforts are worthwhile. "American Psycho 2" has nothing to do with the original filmmakers or author, and only a tenuous but bold link to the previous film. By bold I mean the subject of that film is killed off in the introduction! Name another DTV that would dare try that! Here it sets the stage for our new psycho, who killed Patrick Bateman herself as he was planning the unseemly against her babysitter.

Mila Kunis is sharp-tongued and quick-witted and appealing in a twisted way as a student obsessed with becoming the new teacher's assistant to renowned serial killer expert William Shatner, a wry slice of casting as oftentimes in real life Shatner appears unhinged himself!

The plot thickens as the T.A. competition thins out, which really destroys AP2's credibility. Students disappear for days, yet nobody seems to notice! Fortunately, the tone is kept light and sardonic, a serial killer story carried by helium. 'American Psycho Lite.' 2.5 stars might not sound like much, but that's Oscar-caliber in the realm of DTV.

Artfully, amusingly terrible. I haven't seen the original and I'm still entirely confident I could make a more faithful sequel. And really, the premise wasn't totally without merit, but they failed on every level of execution; unnatural dialogue and amateurish direction aside, the worst problem is that I was bored. I love Shatner but when he's the most believable actor in the movie, you've got a problem. Kunis is much better in Sarah Marshall.

By any other name this film would have been passable: girl obsessed with serial-killers kills rivals for vaunted position at the FBI. Unfortunately they decided to associate it with the brilliance of American Psycho and therefore left themselves open to scatching attacks by those that have not only SEEN the original but UNDERSTOOD it, something the makers of this clearly haven't done.

Forget about the original. Forget that you even saw the first American Psycho film. American Psycho II is one of the worst films I've ever seen. Comparing it to the original film is unnecessary because the only thing these 2 films have in common is the title. It's so boring and predictable. Mila Kunis' acting is so bad in this film that I gave up on her for years. Is Kunis a young Meryl? Hell no, but she's no Ashton Kutcher, either. She does a decent job in Sarah Marshall and Black Swan. Lastly, the actor Morgan Freeman almost changed his name after this movie came out. How even one movie critic liked this movie is a mystery to me.

So, pretty much... worthless "sequel" to the book/movie. Can't imagine Bret was like "cool idea" and let 'em go to it. But, money is as money does, I guess.

Not much of a horror movie, and it's barley enjoyable, but there is some potential. It has nothing to do with the first American Psycho film other than a brief mention of Bateman. The plot is senseless but some of the kills are enjoyable. It should of had a different title, but that still wouldn't have mad the film any better.
