  1. The funniest scenes involve Jim and his father, thanks to the brilliant, improvisational skills of Eugene Levy.
  2. 75
    I laughed at American Pie 2, yes, but this is either going to be the last "Pie" movie or they're going to have to get a new angle.
  3. Somewhere between setup and punch line, American Pie 2 starts feeling less like a sequel and more like the second episode of a TV series, a case of fine-tuning after the pilot's been picked up by the network.
  4. Pie 2's greatest asset is the rare, infectious amiability of its cast of characters and the actors playing them.
  5. 40
    There's no real story and that would be fine, if Rogers and screenwriter Adam Herz could keep from pretending otherwise.
  6. With the raunch quotient cranked up several notches, the sequel is calculated, cynical and, worse, not funny.
  7. Lacks both taste and flavor.

    American Pie 2 is just as good as the original, if not better. The characters continue to be developed in the right direction, the producers take a step up in the soundtrack department, and the plot line is a pleasant change of pace from the original. It is rare for the "college age" genre to produce quality sequels, but American Pie 2 is the perfect example. It produces honest gut wrenching laughs and deserves to be watched for anyone that enjoys a good comedy. Expand

    American Pie fue una buena secuela, fue graciosa y divertida, la diferencia que tiene con su predecesora es que no causo su mismo impacto, la pelicula fue buena pero lo que yo quiero decir es que el tema cambio. Expand

    American Pie 2 is still funny, yes, but the storyline that made the original so fresh and exciting is washed over here. But, thanks to the smart screenwriters, the third movie, American Wedding, felt new again, so we can forgive them for this one only being average. Expand

    Same crew. Same sense of humor. Same ridiculous situations. I love it but it's not quite the classic that the first one is. Eugene Levy is so freakin hilarious Expand

    Yes, the comedy still has that quality typical, but the sequel begins to lose the joke goes as releasing new films, the audience gets used to a kind of comedy, and then when seen for the second time no longer has the strength it had in first impact. Expand
