    Ok, so I haven't seen the movie and actually just want to comment on what seems to be the incredible mob mentality exhibited by these professional critics. No independent thinkers here, huh. Or perhaps it's actually metacritic that is skewing their ratings, as the points values are subjectively assigned. In either case, I certainly feel superior knowing how completely offended I Ok, so I haven't seen the movie and actually just want to comment on what seems to be the incredible mob mentality exhibited by these professional critics.

    I don't know why, but I actually like this movie. I'm not going to lie to any of you readers and actually tell you that it's a good movie -- it's not: the story is derivative, unoriginal, and badly constructed and it leaves much to be desired; there're too many disgusting gags; and the characters themselves are unlikable to say the least.

However, there's something about this movie that seems to care less about being liked: it doesn't rely on fart jokes (it relies on gross sex jokes, instead -- the movie could've done very well without THOSE -- it probably would've gotten better reviews without those jokes); it doesn't aim to shamelessly please with stupid stock characters; it doesn't have hit actors trying to cash it in ('cept maybe the That '70 Show chick trying to stretch herself out); and it lacks the urge to try to paint this happy, unrealistic, and slapstick-reliant image of Life As We Know It. It basically refuses to be mainstream in any way as I know it. Sorry, but college is NOT fun -- it's just as flawed and pretentious as other era in one's person life, and movies like American Pie are designed to appeal to the status quo that thinks it's funny to pretend that college and post-college(or -high school, depending on how your life's turning out) IS The Four Best Years of Your Life. Why pretend? It's not! I don't why anyone, the movie critics or the moviegoers out there, want me to believe that this movie is irreparable crap, while pretentious, crowd-pleasing fluff like American Pie gets passed off as original entertainment for the 18-35 crowd. That, and Michael Maronna from "Pete & Pete" is in this. Seeing as how stuff like this has no chance of ever having or wanting universal appeal and would just rather be itself, I guess I just like this movie out of childish spite. :) Expand

    Not a horrible movie, but not great. Jason Schwartzman definitely makes it more than a rating of of 1. Worth just seeing it to see him.

    The sad thing is, this movie had great potential. With a little more care put into the script and the directing, it would have been great.

    The gags are familiar collegiate stuff, involving horny young men, horny old whores -- horny young tramps -- silly foreigners, uptight authority figures, homosexuals and sassy fat women.
  2. How bad is it? Let me count just some of the ways.
  3. A dirty movie. Not a sexy, erotic, steamy or even smutty movie, but a just plain dirty movie. It made me feel unclean, and I'm the guy who liked "There's Something About Mary" and both "American Pie" movies.
