Description

High school freshman Angus is the class fat-boy, an object of scorn and derision. Despite his portly demeanor, Angus is on the football team and has a secret crush on cheerleader Melissa, who unfortunately belongs to the school's ace quarterback and resident blonde-Adonis Rick, the one who is the cruelest of all to poor Angus. This familiar, yet genuinely heart-tugging youth drama chronicles Angus' triumph over Rick when a mean-spirited practical joke goes awry and leaves Melissa in the big lad's arms and Rick with egg all over his perfect face. Year: 1995 Director: Patrick Read Johnson Starring:Charlie Talbert, George C. Scott, Kathy Bates ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars [Insert generic positive title here]
This is a great movie about growing up and fitting in (or not fitting in), blending comedy, heart, drama, and the spirit of the mid-1990's. The movie is about Angus Bethune (Charlie Talbert - why don't I ever see more of him?), a fat kid who's good at science and fair at football. Angus has a crush on a chearleader named Melissa LeFevre (Ariana Richards), who, sadly, is dating Angus's sworn enemy, Rick Sanford (James Van Der Beek, before Dawson's Creek). Angus hangs out with his little goofy friend, Troy Wedburg (Chris Owen). It is fall, and when its time to vote for the king and queen for the upcoming Winter Ball Dance, Rick, being the [jerk] that he is, rigs the vote so Angus wins and has to dance with Melissa, just to watch Angus humiliate himself. But then Angus also has to work on a project for another school for science. Which one will he pick? You'll have to see it to find out. This is a great movie that should be seen by everyone.

Also, to whom it may concern, PLEASE RELEASE THIS MOVIE ON DVD!!! Thank you.

2-0 out of 5 stars a message for fat kids but this movie chews the fat and dies
this movie sends a good message about geeks and popular kids and the tension between them all. but it sorta makes the movie downfall with all the comedy and the grossness of it all. Scott is funny as Angus' grandpa and it you dont know who that chess player he plays chess with its veteran director Irwin Kershner who directed The Empire Strikes Back. also not that there's a young James Van Der Beek(Varsity Blues, The Rules Of Attraction), Ariana Richards(Spaced Invaders, Jurassic Park) and Chris Owen(Cant Hardly Wait, October Sky, American Pie 1 and 2). fun all around but boring in sections. soundtrack includes Green Day

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT MOVIE, VERY ENCOURAGING
I'm actually watching the movie right now as I'm typing.. This movie is absoultely wonderful!! Although, how come I don't see Charlie Talbert in any other big movies? Anyways... Being a 13 year old fat kid going into high school myself, this movie encourages me to try for what I really want to be, and not become what everyone else is... just to be myself..... you know what I say?? "Screw 'em!" haha If anyone hasnt seen this movie GET IT or if you have Comcast Digital Cable, its on Starz! OnDemand until August 8th or somethin like that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a movie that states the truth!
I love this movie! This movie shows that there is no such thing as "normal" when it comes to people. This movie also shows the stupidity of people, and that looks aren't everything. Everybody has issues. The cruelty in this movie shows just how some people get treated and it's not right. When at the end of the movie, when Angus makes his speech, I was rooting for him. When he kissed a certain someone, I was having the lovey dovey factor. When a certain someone is gone, I cryed until I had to leave the room.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend!
Angus is about the fat kid that every class has (maybe you were that fat kid, who knows?). Although Angus, played by Charlie Talbert, is huge, he is very sensitive and sweet. He is a scientific genius but wishes every day that he were someone else. It examines how to survive being the outcast in high school. Troy (Chris Owen) is his big-eared, red-headed friend who is also an outcast. Angus realizes that he must be brave and stand up to his oppressors. This film is both funny and touching. You will enjoy it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A brilliant story about perseverance and glory
"October Sky" is a superb show! It's 1957, and Homer Hickman is just a regular high school teen living in a small West Virginia town where his father is the manager of the coal mine that employs, well, everyone. As we meet Homer, he is working, not very successfully, to deal with the usual plagues of youth...how to get the the girl of your dreams, how to be noticed while walking in the shadow of a sports hero older brother, how to gain attention and respect from his father, and so on...just about then it is announced that the Soviets had launched Sputnik!

The space age had arrived!

The specter of Sputnik orbiting overhead has a profound influence on Homer...he is captivated by the idea of space and rocketry. He becomes the heart and soul of a group of four HS students who start to dabble in making model rockets of their own...much to his father's chagrin.

You will sorrow with Homer and his friends in their setbacks, and revel with them in their successes. Laura Dern plays a pivotal role as a teacher who encourages the boys to continue their experiments. Before long the whole town in caught up in their launches.

You'll love the way that Homer explains to the sherrif, in front of his class, why one of his rockets couldn't possibly have been responsible for starting a forest fire in the area...classic!

If you haven't seen this show, watch it! It's well worth your time.

As another reviewer aptly pointed out, this is a great film about teens...the teens look and act like teens. The players all do a great job!

"October Sky" is definitely a top-notch 5-star offering for the whole family!

Have a great day...

5-0 out of 5 stars An Insperation That Will Live In Your Heart
When released in 1999 this little movie was a movie that i knew nothing about and i was not sure if i wanted to see it. Although on a saturday afternoon i decided to see it and was i glad because this movie is about Homer H. Hickam Jr living in a small town named coalwood in 1957 when the russians launched Sputnik. Since he is destined to work down in the mines like his father he tries to make it out of there. Homer is played by newcomer Jake Gyllenhaal in a stand out performance. Chris Cooper as the gung ho dad about mining coal in a particularly strong performance and Laura Dern as Ms Riley who encourages the boys to go for there dreams or they will be in the mines.

Told with impeccable detail to the sets and the Photography it has the right look and feel to it. Directed by Joe Johnston who is know for such movies as The Rocketter is new and brings this movie to life. The end of the movie is very moving. Guarented you will go out loving this movie. This is one of the best films of 1999 and really deserves to be seen. Truly a movie that will live in your heart forever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspirational top to bottom
This movie is insanely inspirational. If you buy any positive movie for your collection, think about this one. It tells the story of Homer Hickam and the Rocket boys. Just after the USSR launched Sputnik (the first manmade satellite), the US had to play catch-up.

At this time is when a kid (Homer) decides to build a Rocket. The movie is the quest to build a working rocket and get the hell out of the little coal mining community he is stuck in. He has dreams to get to college and work for NASA.

Will he accomplish his dreams??? Hells yea! After he makes it through two science fairs and his father. This is one of those rare movies that will make you a better person for having seen it. Do yourself the favor and get this movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best rocket movies ever
As a rocket scientist from a top five university, I am astonished about how much this movie correlates with my own experiences. Not only is this movie a great representation of the glory of flight, it also encompasses the human spirit. This movie is not just for rocket enthusiasts. It is for anybody that has had a dream or a passion and let nothing get in the way of it. This movie is captivating and motivating.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pie Ala Mode
1999's AMERICAN PIE, in some ways, reinvigorated the "teen comedy" genre , which was a lost cause. Mixing raunchy humor with a certain amount of "realism". The film is a winner. 4 high school friends make a pact, to lose their virginity, by prom night. Hapless Jim (Jason Biggs), Jock star "OZ" (Chris Klien), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), and ecentric Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) all use various tacticts to win the coveted prize...

Directed by Paul Weitz, the film is, first and foremost, very funny. Suprisingly, the script by Adam Herz, balances the laughs, with an honesty, that you don't often find in films of this type. Another high point in the film is the casting. Everyone is quite good in their respective roles. The film has so many funny moments, it's hard to pick just one. Rest assured, if you have never seen the movie, you wont be disappointed with it.

I admit to being duped by Universal. I traded my Collector's Edition Unrated AMERICAN PIE DVD for the Ultimate Edition 2 disc set. Disc One features the widescreen fornat of the film. Disc Two has the full frame version. Aside from having both formats on sepatate discs, the extras remain the same, with few exceptions (that's why I only give this release 4 stars), 95% of the extras here are available on the other discs. Still you can not go wrong with having a piece of PIE for dessert. Recommended

4-0 out of 5 stars American pie- Get a piece. 3 and a half to 4 stars
Ok, so it was gross, childish, immature, and it's been done many times before in better movies. But, and come close so you can get this the first time, IT WAS FUNNY!! From the beginning with the "sock incident" to the "pale ale" scene to the end with Allyson Hannagins character Michelle. My sides hurt from all the laughter. So here's the plot, Jim (Jason Biggs), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Oz (Chris Klein) and Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) make a pact one day at a party to lose their virginity before graduation. Kevins plan is to work on his girlfriend (Tara Reid) till she gives in, Oz (the jock) tries his charm on a choir girl (Mena Suvari), Finch (a 40 year old in an 18 year olds body) pays a girl (Natasha Lyonne) to tell her friends a few flattering lies about him, and Jim is basicly all around hopeless. His chances of getting any drop down to negative 10 when he's caught creaming his jeans from one touch of the lovely Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth). Now everyones plans goes according to... plan until they all basicly sabotage them selves one by one, some get help and some don't need it. But in the end everyone gets what they want. The movie is funny even though the premise of "getting some" has been around the movie industry since the invention of the camera. It's also been done better like in all the Porky's movies or National Lampoons Animal House. Now in my review I left out a few people but the two I missed that we all know about are Stifler (Seann William Scott) and Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) and they basicly steal the movie. Stiflers "pale ale" scene is hall of fame type stuff and Jim's dad giving Jim a little chat on sex is embarassingly funny. Stifler getting revenge on Finch is real gross and you can't stop laughing about but the way Finch got back at Stifler in the end was probably one of the worse things you could do to a guy. I can't really say much else about the movie because most of it you have to see for yourself and my review does the movie no justice. So if you like to laugh take an hour and a half out of your day and check this out. And for those of you who didn't like the film, deal with it. The movie has already been made and is in millions of homes around the world and there's nothing you can do about it. Your not getting your money back if you saw it in theaters, you can't return it if you bought the dvd, and you have to accept the fact that Hollywood will be making more of these movies down the line. They make them, we pay to watch them, we laugh, we go home, they get our money. You see the movie on tv do what I do when I see something I don't like (Ex: those phony religous shows or networks or Jerry Farwell), change the channel.

3-0 out of 5 stars YES, ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE, BUT THIS ONE IS ENJOYABLE.
I was reluctant to see "American Pie", because every time I heard the name of the movie, I really was hearing "just another lame teen movie" or another "Animal House" wannabe, or the "Porky's" of my generation, but worse. Well, one day I had nothing to do, so I decided to watch it. I was very surprised by "American Pie" because the movie is actually funny.

"American Pie" does have some elements that could have contributed to make another silly movie, like the gross-out humor, the usual share of T&A, the fouled language, in few words, the typical ingredients of a cheap teen movie.

But "American Pie" has key elements that set the movie apart from its predecessors: the cast is kinda charismatic, some of these actors and actresses will be lost in oblivion and others will be famous, but it's hard to deny that these cast is funny and sure they had fun while they were filming "American Pie". Special mention to Eugene Levy, he brings the wisdom of a veteran, and mixes very well with the young newcomers, of course, he steals every scene that he appears on.

The girls in this kind of movies usually are attractive, and thankfully (to the guys) "American Pie" has pretty girls like Tara Reid, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth and Mena Suvari, not all these girls have real acting talent, but at least in "American Pie" they got the work done.

On the other hand, this original "American Pie" movie is the only one truly worthy in the series. I'm sure there are a lot of fans of the second and third movies, but the most demanding audiences will agree that the only decent "American Pie" movie, is this one, the original.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious depiction of teen life.
American Pie is a great comedy depicting the true situations teenagers face everyday. The concept of the movie is not original, as there are many movies like this. But this one is the best of them all. Four friends, Jim, Finch, Oz and Kevin make a pact to get laid before graduation and the things that ensue are hilarious. It is viewed by some as immature and grossly stupid at times, but that is the charm of this movie. Right away when we see Jim get caught with the tubesock, it becomes evident that he will be the one that happens to end up in the most embarrasing situations. What is so funny about this movie is the way teen life is depicted. Nothing fake about it. Teens are concerned with parties, sex and other things, and this captures a pretty good picture of what it is like being a teenager growing up. After you see this you will have it stuck in your head. Say what you will about it being immature, but it is guaranteed to keep you laughing as you follow the lives of average teenagers that just want to get laid.

1-0 out of 5 stars Overrated...
Ok, here's the plot:some douchebags make a pact to get laid. Wow, great plot, I'd love to see a movie like that...not. Then at the end when they get laid, it just shows sex scenes. Wow, real funny, teenagers having sex. If I wanted to see people have sex, I'd watch a damn porno. The movie isn't that funny. There's some funny parts, but the movie's still retarded. I hope there's an American Pie movie where Jason Bigg's character gets in a divorce and committs suicide, while his wife becomes a crack whore. That'll show people how much life really sucks. I just wasted $15 on this piece of crap, and now I can't get it back. I hate this movie and Jason Biggs. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!
The first American Pie started the trend, but American Pie 2 has even more laughs. And it has retained and amplified one important aspect of the original, a somewhat cornball sentimentality that offers a nice counterbalance to the gross sight gags and pervasive atmosphere of salaciousness.

Jason Biggs continues to throw himself into the most embarrassing of situations with admirable gusto, and the movie hinges on his ability to play Jim's most humiliating shenanigans with an odd but appealing, dogged dignity...even when wearing only his drawers. His comic timing is even better than last time, and the movie's best moments come of his straight-faced delivery. And in this sequel you can see how Alyson Hannigan managed to walk off with the most famous line in the original: Given much more weight in American Pie 2, Hannigan is a delight, playing Michelle's offbeat geekiness but hidden warmth to perfection. And her deadpan delivery (the "trumpet" line is bound to become another classic) is beautiful as always. Shannon Elizabeth is surprisingly lacklustre, and Tara Reid is still stuck with the most boring character of the bunch, but otherwise the rest of the supporting cast (Seann William Scott is especially good, reprising uber-jock Stifler) is great, and the sight and verbal gags come faster and tighter than in the original, with the benefit of familiar characters. The famous central gag (won't give it away) had me belly-laughing for a solid minute, something I haven't done since the first time I saw Clerks.

No, it's not cerebral, nor is it an unprecedented classic. But for a good rowdy night of teen comedy, American Pie 2 hits the spot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Go see this! Best sequel of the summer!
I've seen many movies this summer. As many of you know, there has been many dissapointing movies out there this summer.(Tomb Raider, A.I.,Scary Movie 2,and Planet of the Apes to name a few.) Sequels have been horrible lately, like Scary Movie 2 and Jurassic Park 3. Rush hour 2 was one of the better sequels this summer. When I went to see AP2 with my friends yesterday, I was expecting another sequel that was put together way too fast and didn't have any thought in it. I loved the first one, and I probably have watched the American Pie DVD about 100 times! I bought my popcorn and my drink and was ready for another bad sequel. Man, was I so wrong. AP2 was probably my favorite movie of the summer. I barely ate any of my popcorn or drank any of my drink I was laughing so hard. I thank Universal Studios for giving Eugene Levy a bigger part in this movie. Seann William Scott is extremely funny in this movie, with all his comments. I don't want to spoil it for all you people who haven't seen this movie, but there will be lesbians, some phone sex between Mena Suvari(Heather), and Chris Klein(Oz), a "champagne" bath for Seann William Scott(Stifler), an accident with superglue for Jason Biggs(Jim), the rule of three, and more of Eddie Kaye Thomas and Stifler's mom(What a MILF!just kiddin!) Go see this movie, You will not be dissapointed. It is the funniest, crudest movie of the summer. NOT for Kids!

1-0 out of 5 stars Awful
Maybe the worst movie i've ever seen. Boring, very TALENTLESS actors, and bad jokes. Primitive film for primitive people.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow....what a great sequel!
I loved the first American Pie movie; I would watch it almost weekly with friends. I didn't think any movie could top it, but American Pie 2 comes very close, and at times, is better than the original. I also wanted to start off by saying, to the viewers who complain about such movies having too much raunchy humor, and therefore rating it low, you have to know going into these movies that they will be like this. Some people need to seriously lighten up, quit being a stiff, and have a good laugh every now and then. Also, to the last 1 star guy on here, you need a reality check. I'm not saying that the military is a bad thing, but you can't underrate the value of a college education/experience. It gives people who aren't born for the military (which is most of us) a chance to get a career and contribute to society, and it's also a social experience (the social experience aspect of college is probably more beneficial in the long run than even the educational aspect). And Road Trip was a great movie as well; LIGHTEN UP! (or quit your complaining). The only people that make your generation look bad are people like you!!

Anyway, Jason Biggs is in his usual role as Jim, despite getting laid last movie by a band geek, of having zero confidence in his ability to score (or do much else, for that matter). I disliked the opening scene, especially with that cheesy line "this is my first time......since my.....first time....so....technically, it's my second time," which made me weary about this movie. However, when Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) enters the room, the scene became hilarious, as Eugene perfectly plays the nimwitted father who is completely inept to the fact that no kid wants his/her father to see him/her naked. The movie continues as Stifler (Sean William Scott) and Oz (Chris Klien) discuss how many girls a man is supposed to have sex with during one year at college. This scene could have been a waste of a few minutes, but Scott, being the acting prodigy that he is, knows how to play the cocky card while not coming off as a complete a$$hole. When the four boys Oz, Jim, Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), and Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) later meet at their local diner, Finch comes off as this sex god, having gotten laid with a Japanese girl in an art museum, his psychology professor, and of course, Stifler's mom. Finch and Stifler steal the show this time around, as the two have amazing chemistry as enemies. Stifler constantly makes fun of Finch's practice of tantric sex, and Finch constantly practices his tantra in various places just to piss off Stifler (like the plant in the house that the boys rent for the summer), as well as.......well, I won't reveal the ending. They rent this house to throw monster parties, and to help Jim have amazing sex with Nadia when she plans to visit him at the summer. Jim also gets practice from the nerd he "scored" with last time around, and when she told him that he sucked, I laughed my ass off! (not only at how she said it, but Jason Biggs needs to be told he sucks, and I relished that moment). Also, the scene where Jim is mistaken for a trombone king Petey is very poorly done (what a surprise, since Biggs is a the forefront of the whole scene). He isn't as bad in this sequel as he was in the first one, but overall, Biggs isn't even close to the talent of the others (which is how he usually is). However, I do have to admit that the superglue scene was quite funny, mostly because we expect lousy things to happen to Jim, though I have to give him credit for putting effort into at least that scene. Despite any other minor flaws this movie may have, it overall comes across as a strong comedy that often goes for the gut, and succeeds about 98% of the time, with viewers in constant pursuit of fresh air after laughing so hard.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pie Ala Mode
1999's AMERICAN PIE, in some ways, reinvigorated the "teen comedy" genre , which was a lost cause. Mixing raunchy humor with a certain amount of "realism". The film is a winner. 4 high school friends make a pact, to lose their virginity, by prom night. Hapless Jim (Jason Biggs), Jock star "OZ" (Chris Klien), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), and ecentric Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) all use various tacticts to win the coveted prize...

Directed by Paul Weitz, the film is, first and foremost, very funny. Suprisingly, the script by Adam Herz, balances the laughs, with an honesty, that you don't often find in films of this type. Another high point in the film is the casting. Everyone is quite good in their respective roles. The film has so many funny moments, it's hard to pick just one. Rest assured, if you have never seen the movie, you wont be disappointed with it.

I admit to being duped by Universal. I traded my Collector's Edition Unrated AMERICAN PIE DVD for the Ultimate Edition 2 disc set. Disc One features the widescreen fornat of the film. Disc Two has the full frame version. Aside from having both formats on sepatate discs, the extras remain the same, with few exceptions (that's why I only give this release 4 stars), 95% of the extras here are available on the other discs. Still you can not go wrong with having a piece of PIE for dessert. Recommended

4-0 out of 5 stars American pie- Get a piece. 3 and a half to 4 stars
Ok, so it was gross, childish, immature, and it's been done many times before in better movies. But, and come close so you can get this the first time, IT WAS FUNNY!! From the beginning with the "sock incident" to the "pale ale" scene to the end with Allyson Hannagins character Michelle. My sides hurt from all the laughter. So here's the plot, Jim (Jason Biggs), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Oz (Chris Klein) and Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) make a pact one day at a party to lose their virginity before graduation. Kevins plan is to work on his girlfriend (Tara Reid) till she gives in, Oz (the jock) tries his charm on a choir girl (Mena Suvari), Finch (a 40 year old in an 18 year olds body) pays a girl (Natasha Lyonne) to tell her friends a few flattering lies about him, and Jim is basicly all around hopeless. His chances of getting any drop down to negative 10 when he's caught creaming his jeans from one touch of the lovely Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth). Now everyones plans goes according to... plan until they all basicly sabotage them selves one by one, some get help and some don't need it. But in the end everyone gets what they want. The movie is funny even though the premise of "getting some" has been around the movie industry since the invention of the camera. It's also been done better like in all the Porky's movies or National Lampoons Animal House. Now in my review I left out a few people but the two I missed that we all know about are Stifler (Seann William Scott) and Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) and they basicly steal the movie. Stiflers "pale ale" scene is hall of fame type stuff and Jim's dad giving Jim a little chat on sex is embarassingly funny. Stifler getting revenge on Finch is real gross and you can't stop laughing about but the way Finch got back at Stifler in the end was probably one of the worse things you could do to a guy. I can't really say much else about the movie because most of it you have to see for yourself and my review does the movie no justice. So if you like to laugh take an hour and a half out of your day and check this out. And for those of you who didn't like the film, deal with it. The movie has already been made and is in millions of homes around the world and there's nothing you can do about it. Your not getting your money back if you saw it in theaters, you can't return it if you bought the dvd, and you have to accept the fact that Hollywood will be making more of these movies down the line. They make them, we pay to watch them, we laugh, we go home, they get our money. You see the movie on tv do what I do when I see something I don't like (Ex: those phony religous shows or networks or Jerry Farwell), change the channel.

3-0 out of 5 stars YES, ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE, BUT THIS ONE IS ENJOYABLE.
I was reluctant to see "American Pie", because every time I heard the name of the movie, I really was hearing "just another lame teen movie" or another "Animal House" wannabe, or the "Porky's" of my generation, but worse. Well, one day I had nothing to do, so I decided to watch it. I was very surprised by "American Pie" because the movie is actually funny.

"American Pie" does have some elements that could have contributed to make another silly movie, like the gross-out humor, the usual share of T&A, the fouled language, in few words, the typical ingredients of a cheap teen movie.

But "American Pie" has key elements that set the movie apart from its predecessors: the cast is kinda charismatic, some of these actors and actresses will be lost in oblivion and others will be famous, but it's hard to deny that these cast is funny and sure they had fun while they were filming "American Pie". Special mention to Eugene Levy, he brings the wisdom of a veteran, and mixes very well with the young newcomers, of course, he steals every scene that he appears on.

The girls in this kind of movies usually are attractive, and thankfully (to the guys) "American Pie" has pretty girls like Tara Reid, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth and Mena Suvari, not all these girls have real acting talent, but at least in "American Pie" they got the work done.

On the other hand, this original "American Pie" movie is the only one truly worthy in the series. I'm sure there are a lot of fans of the second and third movies, but the most demanding audiences will agree that the only decent "American Pie" movie, is this one, the original.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious depiction of teen life.
American Pie is a great comedy depicting the true situations teenagers face everyday. The concept of the movie is not original, as there are many movies like this. But this one is the best of them all. Four friends, Jim, Finch, Oz and Kevin make a pact to get laid before graduation and the things that ensue are hilarious. It is viewed by some as immature and grossly stupid at times, but that is the charm of this movie. Right away when we see Jim get caught with the tubesock, it becomes evident that he will be the one that happens to end up in the most embarrasing situations. What is so funny about this movie is the way teen life is depicted. Nothing fake about it. Teens are concerned with parties, sex and other things, and this captures a pretty good picture of what it is like being a teenager growing up. After you see this you will have it stuck in your head. Say what you will about it being immature, but it is guaranteed to keep you laughing as you follow the lives of average teenagers that just want to get laid.

1-0 out of 5 stars Overrated...
Ok, here's the plot:some douchebags make a pact to get laid. Wow, great plot, I'd love to see a movie like that...not. Then at the end when they get laid, it just shows sex scenes. Wow, real funny, teenagers having sex. If I wanted to see people have sex, I'd watch a damn porno. The movie isn't that funny. There's some funny parts, but the movie's still retarded. I hope there's an American Pie movie where Jason Bigg's character gets in a divorce and committs suicide, while his wife becomes a crack whore. That'll show people how much life really sucks. I just wasted $15 on this piece of crap, and now I can't get it back. I hate this movie and Jason Biggs. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Comedy, Poetry, Hot Chick
I'll begin with a confession: I was reluctant to watch this film. It was snobbish on my part. A recent interview with Tara Reid in MAXIM portrayed the actress as a shallow ditz, and I doubted that the voluntary suspension of disbelief would succeed in allowing me to see her as serious college student Gwen Pearson. This was the crux of my objection to NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VAN WILDER. My husband cleverly defeated my opposition with the "Yes, but she's a really hot chick" argument, and we bought the DVD. To my surprise, Reid pulls off the act, dropping words like "pander" and phrases like "benevolent agenda" as if they had belonged in her personal vocabulary bank all along.

The writing goes far beyond clever. It's down right poetic, with lines dance on the ear like a butterfly on a buttercup. Take, for example, "That's no bong! That's for my shlong!" Watch out Shakespeare.

Best of all, the movie answers the age-old question: What was Ferris Bueller like in college? Van Wilder (Ryan Reynonds) fits the mold rather closely. He's a philanthropist who knows how to have a good time. He's funny, good looking, and popular with just about everyone. Brilliant ideas like topless tutors and the naked mile run are a-dime-a-dozen with this guy. Most importantly, he gets away with everything. I'm glad I didn't get away with turning my nose up at this delightfully amusing film. So even if you're skeptical, give it a try, and don't neglect to consider that Tara Reid's a really hot chick.

4-0 out of 5 stars It Felt Great To Laugh Freely Once Again
National Lampoon's Van Wilder is an absolutely Hillarious movie. It was so refreshing to see a movie where you can laugh freely once again without having to worry about whether or not what you're laughing at is Politically Correct or not. Who Cares, it's just a movie for Gosh Sakes, if it's funny, LAUGH! Ryan Reynolds is very charasmatic as Van Wilder, who is a College Campus Party Liason, who would rather party than study, until he's forced to, and then he shows that he can be serious when he has to. Kal Penn as Taj, Van's personal assistant, is hillarious, a job well done, and Tara Reid as Gwen Pearson, a student reporter who at first does a hatchet job story on Van, but then has the decency to print a follow up, much more researched truthful story on Van, something a lot of real life media members should have done long ago with regards to stories they've written on certain celebrities, especially, Tara Reid herself, who for some unknown and totally unfair reason has been designated as a media scratching post. She does a very good job in the film, especially considering what she had to work with, and the fact that she basically had to portray the "straight man" to everyone elses comedic performances. Her on screen presence, as usual is captivating. The eclair scene (when you see it, you'll know what I'm talking about), is very gross, it's extremely funny the very first time you see it, but every time I've watched it since, it truly is disgusting. But that's only one scene. All in all it's an absolutely hillarious movie, fine performances all around, and had it been any other actress, especially a "Hollywood Favourite", other than Tara Reid, they couldn't have portrayed the role of Gwen Pearson any better... Anyways, for a good laugh, and just to be able to forget about the hardships or trials and tribulations of the everyday rat race, just for an hour and a half or so, see this movie.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very well-scripted comedy masterpiece...
This was avery funny movie that I enjoyed thoroughly from start to finish.Some of my favorite moments in this film included the eclair-stuffing scene involving the dog and the Phi Delta Kappa Fraternity,the hockey showdown,and when Gwen mixed up the "bloating formula".

1-0 out of 5 stars Van Dumber
Let's put it this way: it takes a lot more than farting strippers and a dog with giant testicles to make me laugh. Should we have to watch another wannabe actor try to distinguish himself by doing what looks like a bad Jim Carey impression throughout the movie? What do you call toilet humor without the humor? Will Tara Reid ever act, or will she be stuck in an eye-candy phone booth forever? Is sex talk supposed to be funny just because it's coming out of the mouth of an ethnic guy with an accent? When a movie has nothing else going for it, is throwing in a pair of naked boobs really going to make much difference? These are but some of the questions "Van Wilder" poses.
Here's a tip for the guys over at National Lampoon:
Animal House = a funny movie about idiots
Vacation = a very funny movie about an idiot
Van Wilder = an unfunny movie starring, and made by, idiots
Moral: Comedies are supposed to be funny.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best...Movie...Ever!!!
Van Wilder is the type of movie that you either love or hate...and I think if you are a teenager or in your young 20's, you will absolutely love this movie. I bought it when it was first released on DVD and didn't watch it until about 2 months after owning it, but when I finally got around to watching it I realized taht I made a huge mistake waiting as long as I did, as this was truly a great movie. The emotion is very apparent as I felt like I got to know the characters and it led me to follow Ryan Reynold's career by buying "The In-Laws" when that came out on DVD as well. I also became an avid "Two Guys and A Girl" watcher after catching him on it, as he is a great actor for these kind of roles. Pretty much everyone I've watched this movie with has gone into the movie thinking "this can't be as good as he's making it out to be" and then after the movie is over, they go out and buy the dvd themselves, so do yourselves a favor and buy this one as well... ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!
The first American Pie started the trend, but American Pie 2 has even more laughs. And it has retained and amplified one important aspect of the original, a somewhat cornball sentimentality that offers a nice counterbalance to the gross sight gags and pervasive atmosphere of salaciousness.

Jason Biggs continues to throw himself into the most embarrassing of situations with admirable gusto, and the movie hinges on his ability to play Jim's most humiliating shenanigans with an odd but appealing, dogged dignity...even when wearing only his drawers. His comic timing is even better than last time, and the movie's best moments come of his straight-faced delivery. And in this sequel you can see how Alyson Hannigan managed to walk off with the most famous line in the original: Given much more weight in American Pie 2, Hannigan is a delight, playing Michelle's offbeat geekiness but hidden warmth to perfection. And her deadpan delivery (the "trumpet" line is bound to become another classic) is beautiful as always. Shannon Elizabeth is surprisingly lacklustre, and Tara Reid is still stuck with the most boring character of the bunch, but otherwise the rest of the supporting cast (Seann William Scott is especially good, reprising uber-jock Stifler) is great, and the sight and verbal gags come faster and tighter than in the original, with the benefit of familiar characters. The famous central gag (won't give it away) had me belly-laughing for a solid minute, something I haven't done since the first time I saw Clerks.

No, it's not cerebral, nor is it an unprecedented classic. But for a good rowdy night of teen comedy, American Pie 2 hits the spot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Go see this! Best sequel of the summer!
I've seen many movies this summer. As many of you know, there has been many dissapointing movies out there this summer.(Tomb Raider, A.I.,Scary Movie 2,and Planet of the Apes to name a few.) Sequels have been horrible lately, like Scary Movie 2 and Jurassic Park 3. Rush hour 2 was one of the better sequels this summer. When I went to see AP2 with my friends yesterday, I was expecting another sequel that was put together way too fast and didn't have any thought in it. I loved the first one, and I probably have watched the American Pie DVD about 100 times! I bought my popcorn and my drink and was ready for another bad sequel. Man, was I so wrong. AP2 was probably my favorite movie of the summer. I barely ate any of my popcorn or drank any of my drink I was laughing so hard. I thank Universal Studios for giving Eugene Levy a bigger part in this movie. Seann William Scott is extremely funny in this movie, with all his comments. I don't want to spoil it for all you people who haven't seen this movie, but there will be lesbians, some phone sex between Mena Suvari(Heather), and Chris Klein(Oz), a "champagne" bath for Seann William Scott(Stifler), an accident with superglue for Jason Biggs(Jim), the rule of three, and more of Eddie Kaye Thomas and Stifler's mom(What a MILF!just kiddin!) Go see this movie, You will not be dissapointed. It is the funniest, crudest movie of the summer. NOT for Kids!

1-0 out of 5 stars Awful
Maybe the worst movie i've ever seen. Boring, very TALENTLESS actors, and bad jokes. Primitive film for primitive people.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow....what a great sequel!
I loved the first American Pie movie; I would watch it almost weekly with friends. I didn't think any movie could top it, but American Pie 2 comes very close, and at times, is better than the original. I also wanted to start off by saying, to the viewers who complain about such movies having too much raunchy humor, and therefore rating it low, you have to know going into these movies that they will be like this. Some people need to seriously lighten up, quit being a stiff, and have a good laugh every now and then. Also, to the last 1 star guy on here, you need a reality check. I'm not saying that the military is a bad thing, but you can't underrate the value of a college education/experience. It gives people who aren't born for the military (which is most of us) a chance to get a career and contribute to society, and it's also a social experience (the social experience aspect of college is probably more beneficial in the long run than even the educational aspect). And Road Trip was a great movie as well; LIGHTEN UP! (or quit your complaining). The only people that make your generation look bad are people like you!!

Anyway, Jason Biggs is in his usual role as Jim, despite getting laid last movie by a band geek, of having zero confidence in his ability to score (or do much else, for that matter). I disliked the opening scene, especially with that cheesy line "this is my first time......since my.....first time....so....technically, it's my second time," which made me weary about this movie. However, when Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) enters the room, the scene became hilarious, as Eugene perfectly plays the nimwitted father who is completely inept to the fact that no kid wants his/her father to see him/her naked. The movie continues as Stifler (Sean William Scott) and Oz (Chris Klien) discuss how many girls a man is supposed to have sex with during one year at college. This scene could have been a waste of a few minutes, but Scott, being the acting prodigy that he is, knows how to play the cocky card while not coming off as a complete a$$hole. When the four boys Oz, Jim, Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), and Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) later meet at their local diner, Finch comes off as this sex god, having gotten laid with a Japanese girl in an art museum, his psychology professor, and of course, Stifler's mom. Finch and Stifler steal the show this time around, as the two have amazing chemistry as enemies. Stifler constantly makes fun of Finch's practice of tantric sex, and Finch constantly practices his tantra in various places just to piss off Stifler (like the plant in the house that the boys rent for the summer), as well as.......well, I won't reveal the ending. They rent this house to throw monster parties, and to help Jim have amazing sex with Nadia when she plans to visit him at the summer. Jim also gets practice from the nerd he "scored" with last time around, and when she told him that he sucked, I laughed my ass off! (not only at how she said it, but Jason Biggs needs to be told he sucks, and I relished that moment). Also, the scene where Jim is mistaken for a trombone king Petey is very poorly done (what a surprise, since Biggs is a the forefront of the whole scene). He isn't as bad in this sequel as he was in the first one, but overall, Biggs isn't even close to the talent of the others (which is how he usually is). However, I do have to admit that the superglue scene was quite funny, mostly because we expect lousy things to happen to Jim, though I have to give him credit for putting effort into at least that scene. Despite any other minor flaws this movie may have, it overall comes across as a strong comedy that often goes for the gut, and succeeds about 98% of the time, with viewers in constant pursuit of fresh air after laughing so hard.

It was so refreshing to see a movie where you can laugh freely once again without having to worry about whether or not what you're laughing at is Politically Correct or not. Who Cares, it's just a movie for Gosh Sakes, if it's funny, LAUGH! Ryan Reynolds is very charasmatic as Van Wilder, who is a College Campus Party Liason, who would rather party than study, until he's forced to, and then he shows that he can be serious when he has to. Kal Penn as Taj, Van's personal assistant, is hillarious, a job well done, and Tara Reid as Gwen Pearson, a student reporter who at first does a hatchet job story on Van, but then has the decency to print a follow up, much more researched truthful story on Van, something a lot of real life media members should have done long ago with regards to stories they've written on certain celebrities, especially, Tara Reid herself, who for some unknown and totally unfair reason has been designated as a media scratching post. She does a very good job in the film, especially considering what she had to work with, and the fact that she basically had to portray the "straight man" to everyone elses comedic performances. Her on screen presence, as usual is captivating. The eclair scene (when you see it, you'll know what I'm talking about), is very gross, it's extremely funny the very first time you see it, but every time I've watched it since, it truly is disgusting. But that's only one scene. All in all it's an absolutely hillarious movie, fine performances all around, and had it been any other actress, especially a "Hollywood Favourite", other than Tara Reid, they couldn't have portrayed the role of Gwen Pearson any better... Anyways, for a good laugh, and just to be able to forget about the hardships or trials and tribulations of the everyday rat race, just for an hour and a half or so, see this movie.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very well-scripted comedy masterpiece...
This was avery funny movie that I enjoyed thoroughly from start to finish.Some of my favorite moments in this film included the eclair-stuffing scene involving the dog and the Phi Delta Kappa Fraternity,the hockey showdown,and when Gwen mixed up the "bloating formula".

1-0 out of 5 stars Van Dumber
Let's put it this way: it takes a lot more than farting strippers and a dog with giant testicles to make me laugh. Should we have to watch another wannabe actor try to distinguish himself by doing what looks like a bad Jim Carey impression throughout the movie? What do you call toilet humor without the humor? Will Tara Reid ever act, or will she be stuck in an eye-candy phone booth forever? Is sex talk supposed to be funny just because it's coming out of the mouth of an ethnic guy with an accent? When a movie has nothing else going for it, is throwing in a pair of naked boobs really going to make much difference? These are but some of the questions "Van Wilder" poses.
Here's a tip for the guys over at National Lampoon:
Animal House = a funny movie about idiots
Vacation = a very funny movie about an idiot
Van Wilder = an unfunny movie starring, and made by, idiots
Moral: Comedies are supposed to be funny.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best...Movie...Ever!!!
Van Wilder is the type of movie that you either love or hate...and I think if you are a teenager or in your young 20's, you will absolutely love this movie. I bought it when it was first released on DVD and didn't watch it until about 2 months after owning it, but when I finally got around to watching it I realized taht I made a huge mistake waiting as long as I did, as this was truly a great movie. The emotion is very apparent as I felt like I got to know the characters and it led me to follow Ryan Reynold's career by buying "The In-Laws" when that came out on DVD as well. I also became an avid "Two Guys and A Girl" watcher after catching him on it, as he is a great actor for these kind of roles. Pretty much everyone I've watched this movie with has gone into the movie thinking "this can't be as good as he's making it out to be" and then after the movie is over, they go out and buy the dvd themselves, so do yourselves a favor and buy this one as well... ...

One thing's for sure:GOING GREEK will never be shown in the fraternal society.

Few Frat guys may ask why this movie is called GOING GREEK, but few may even ask if it is even neccessary to transform these teens from Avrg. teenagers into frat guys.

Final thougts:

I am advising college teens NOT towatch this for a study of live in fraternity.Or for un.It's just Boring.Boring Boring boring Boring.

1-0 out of 5 stars Same as everything else
The jokes are lame and not funny. It brings scat humor to a new level. (...)

4-0 out of 5 stars Funniest elevator scene ever!
This frat comedy surprisingly has a lot of heart going for it, but besides that it's pretty damn funny. A really appealing cast completely engages the audience and much of the script and direction, oddly enough, has the ring of personal experience to it. And for outrageous laughs, the elevator scene alone is worth it: once seen, it can never be forgotten. But the real trick here is characters you actually care about--without that, the laughs would be empty.

2-0 out of 5 stars When Watching Movies Becomes A True Chore
Wow! Not since my brush with Beat Takeshi's "Hana-bi" has a film tested the limits of my patience, for this film is neither engaging nor funny. Storytelling (thinly, a college student joins a fraternity so that his cousin can join too, not knowing that he is being used to defeat a rival fraternity) and character development (just look at the "romance"), not to mention many missed opportunities at good humor, take a backseat in this 90-minute collection of what pretend to be disgusting (though well-meaning) gags. Even though some of the gags when left in isolation are quite funny, the supposed grossness of the movie quickly becomes boring since nothing apparently is at stake, so the gags exist without meaning. Surely someone with an inclination towards gross-out gags may enjoy it. Yet after repeated viewings, even he may find it frustrating to question, in ultimate futility, what is the urgency and the gravity that keeps our heroes performing these scenes.

Though it's admirable that the film was shot with an extremely low budget, it's sad to see a slew of young talents with true potential bogged down in a film like this, especially the Plum One, Charlie Talbert, and his buddy, Chris Owen.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't Expect Good-Looking Women
It's a new school year, and that means fraternity initiations. The film is almost what you expect - not too dull, not very imaginative. However, two important caveats: almost no funny jokes - all the humor is gross-out humor; almost no female skin - in fact, most of the nudity is male, with the exception of one actress who goes briefly topless twice. Not worth the time or the cost. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT MOVIE
If you watch this your getting 107 minutes, 35 scenes, one movie full of laughs from beginning to end. I never got tired of watching this movie because it's so good. It stars David Arquette, Scott Caan, Oliver Platt, Rose McGowan, Bill Goldberg, Diamond Dallas Page, Sting, Joe Pantaliano, plus many other great actors that are great. It's about two friends Gordie(Arquette) and Sean(Caan) go to watch there favorite wrestler Jimmy King(Oliver Platt) in the ring. Jimmy's boss turns on him and makes him take a brutal beating by Diamond Dallas Page. Jimmy never wrestles again until Sean and Gordy leave the match all mad and sad until they find Jimmy King and try to get him back in the ring so he can regain his belt and get back at those who turned on him. He gets a wresting trainer Sal (Martin Landau) who helps him get back into wrestling. They continue to train and fight until there big match comes.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
-Commentary on whole movie
-Bif Naked music video "We're not Gonna Take It"
-Up close with Nitro Girls behind scenes segments
-No holds barred behind the scenes segments
-Wrestlers interview gallery
-Filmographies, trailer

Overall this is a great, hilarious comedy movie that anyone will enjoy. If you have seen the movie "Dodgeball A True Underdog Story" and enjoyed that you will love this movie.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ready to Fall!
Ready to Rumble clearly isn't the greatest movie ever because of its genre, but it does have a clear intention, to focus in on teens and major wrestling fans. Ready to Rumble stars David Arquette ("Scream Trilogy", "Beautiful Girls", "Johns"), Oliver Platt ("Funny Bones", "Lake Placid", "Flatliners"), Scott Caan ("Gone in 60 Seconds","Varsity Blues"), Joe Pantoliano ("The Matrix", TV's "The Sopranos") and Martin Landau ("Ed", "The X-Files").

       Basically, Gordy (Arquette) and Sean (Caan)are die-hard wrestling fans and their favorite wrestler, Jimmy King (Platt) just got kicked out of the WCW and won't be able to return. King got a heavy beating from other wrestlers and his boss, Titus Sinclair (Pantoliano). Now, its up to Gordy and Sean to get Jimmy King back into the ring and become the world wrestling champ once again. King must face Diamond Dallas Page (as himself)again, after he was slaughtered by Page to win back the title. He'll also have to face other wrestlers. Gordy gets help from the head nirto girl, Sasha (Rose McGowan, "Scream","Jawbreaker" TV's "Charmed"). Sean also finds love. Sting and Stone Cold play themselves.
     This movie is basically about two morons who want to get the favorite wrestler back into the ring. It's crude, lewd and bad. It does have some comedic brilliance, but not enough of class, style, or a good script. 2 stars is all I'm giving this movie because it lacks a great plot and certain cinematic brilliances. Arquette, Platt, and Caan are great actors, but this is the lowest for all of them. Arquette, a great actor, is in a stupid movie that really has no taste and holds no significant point. This movie is only recommended to wrestling fans. For all of the others, good luck! And yes, Scott Caan is the son of legendary actor James Caan.

2-0 out of 5 stars Some redeeming value, but not much
Ready to Rumble is not a good movie by any means. As a comedy the jokes are very sophmoric and the two leads give wrestling fans a bad name. However there are some redeeming factors that in some ways make this a better movie.

The plot here is that the current King of Wrestling (Oliver Platt) is brutally dethroned by the an Evil promoter and his henchmen Diamond Dallas Page. From there two bumbling fans go on a quest to get Jimmy King back to the top. Along the way they encounter variouse WCW talent as well as other interesting characters.

Easily the best moments come when either they show wrestling matches and when Marlon Brandow is on the screen. Yes Marlon Brandow is in this and is so over the top that in my opinion steals the show.

However despite the cool wrestling moments and Marlon Brandow there really isn't much to look at here. The only thing worse than what this movie was a majority of the time was the fact that it spun off into a real WCW storyline that really sucked and made to some fans a hated man out of David Arquette. Past that if you really should, rent this... or else I will lay the smackdown on you... wait wrong promotion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just a wrestling movie, a landmark film.
This is a funny movie, including David Arquette, Oliver Platt, and Scott Caan, they make a good team, and I like the part where Scott Caan just had it with this woman. I give it 5 stars, because this isn't just a wrestling movie, it's a landmark film!

2-0 out of 5 stars Tries to be funny, but fails
Summary:
Jimmy King (Oliver Platt) is the 'King' of professional wrestling, where everything is supposed to be fake, right? Well, when King abuses his place as the champion, his manager, Titus Sinclair (Joe Pantoliano), gives Dallas Page the go ahead to make their championship match real. King doesn't actually stand a chance and loses the title.

Watching in horror and dismay are King's two greatest fans - Gordie Boggs (David Arquette) and Sean Dawkins (Scott Caan). Resolving that King was defeated unfairly and believing that King is actually a decent guy, Gordie and Sean decide to find King and help him get his title back. Along the way they sing Pink Floyd with nuns, see Oliver Platt in a dress, have wild sex with one of the wrestling world's dancers, Rose McGowan, and try to stay ahead of Gordie's dad, Richard Lineback, who is a policeman and wants Gordie to become one.

My Comments:
I just want to know one thing, did Oliver Platt do his own stunts? Jimmy King gets beat up on a regular basis and Oliver Platt just doesn't seem to be the kind of guy that could play that role. Anyway...

The movie is kind of funny in that it's making fun of wrestling fans, at least, sort of. It also incorporates a number of actual wrestlers, including Bill Goldberg (I) and Steve Borden (I).

But in the end, the comedic attempts are, well, attempts. The majority of the humor is slapstick potty humor and just isn't that funny. I'm not sure that I laughed out loud even once. It just didn't cut it on the humor end.

Perhaps this is kind of like Zoolander in that you really have to be into the industry (wrestling in this case, fashion in Zoolander) to get the humor and see all of the subtle insinuations. I'm not and I definitely didn't find this to be that funny.

Overall, don't waste your time unless you actually watch 'professional' wrestling or like potty humor. The movie isn't funny, the story is ridiculous, and the wrestling, though supposed to be real, is even more fake than the stuff you see on TV. I gave it two stars for making fun of wrestling fans. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pie Ala Mode
1999's AMERICAN PIE, in some ways, reinvigorated the "teen comedy" genre , which was a lost cause. Mixing raunchy humor with a certain amount of "realism". The film is a winner. 4 high school friends make a pact, to lose their virginity, by prom night. Hapless Jim (Jason Biggs), Jock star "OZ" (Chris Klien), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), and ecentric Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) all use various tacticts to win the coveted prize...

Directed by Paul Weitz, the film is, first and foremost, very funny. Suprisingly, the script by Adam Herz, balances the laughs, with an honesty, that you don't often find in films of this type. Another high point in the film is the casting. Everyone is quite good in their respective roles. The film has so many funny moments, it's hard to pick just one. Rest assured, if you have never seen the movie, you wont be disappointed with it.

I admit to being duped by Universal. I traded my Collector's Edition Unrated AMERICAN PIE DVD for the Ultimate Edition 2 disc set. Disc One features the widescreen fornat of the film. Disc Two has the full frame version. Aside from having both formats on sepatate discs, the extras remain the same, with few exceptions (that's why I only give this release 4 stars), 95% of the extras here are available on the other discs. Still you can not go wrong with having a piece of PIE for dessert. Recommended

4-0 out of 5 stars American pie- Get a piece. 3 and a half to 4 stars
Ok, so it was gross, childish, immature, and it's been done many times before in better movies. But, and come close so you can get this the first time, IT WAS FUNNY!! From the beginning with the "sock incident" to the "pale ale" scene to the end with Allyson Hannagins character Michelle. My sides hurt from all the laughter. So here's the plot, Jim (Jason Biggs), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Oz (Chris Klein) and Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) make a pact one day at a party to lose their virginity before graduation. Kevins plan is to work on his girlfriend (Tara Reid) till she gives in, Oz (the jock) tries his charm on a choir girl (Mena Suvari), Finch (a 40 year old in an 18 year olds body) pays a girl (Natasha Lyonne) to tell her friends a few flattering lies about him, and Jim is basicly all around hopeless. His chances of getting any drop down to negative 10 when he's caught creaming his jeans from one touch of the lovely Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth). Now everyones plans goes according to... plan until they all basicly sabotage them selves one by one, some get help and some don't need it. But in the end everyone gets what they want. The movie is funny even though the premise of "getting some" has been around the movie industry since the invention of the camera. It's also been done better like in all the Porky's movies or National Lampoons Animal House. Now in my review I left out a few people but the two I missed that we all know about are Stifler (Seann William Scott) and Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) and they basicly steal the movie. Stiflers "pale ale" scene is hall of fame type stuff and Jim's dad giving Jim a little chat on sex is embarassingly funny. Stifler getting revenge on Finch is real gross and you can't stop laughing about but the way Finch got back at Stifler in the end was probably one of the worse things you could do to a guy. I can't really say much else about the movie because most of it you have to see for yourself and my review does the movie no justice. So if you like to laugh take an hour and a half out of your day and check this out. And for those of you who didn't like the film, deal with it. The movie has already been made and is in millions of homes around the world and there's nothing you can do about it. Your not getting your money back if you saw it in theaters, you can't return it if you bought the dvd, and you have to accept the fact that Hollywood will be making more of these movies down the line. They make them, we pay to watch them, we laugh, we go home, they get our money. You see the movie on tv do what I do when I see something I don't like (Ex: those phony religous shows or networks or Jerry Farwell), change the channel.

3-0 out of 5 stars YES, ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE, BUT THIS ONE IS ENJOYABLE.
I was reluctant to see "American Pie", because every time I heard the name of the movie, I really was hearing "just another lame teen movie" or another "Animal House" wannabe, or the "Porky's" of my generation, but worse. Well, one day I had nothing to do, so I decided to watch it. I was very surprised by "American Pie" because the movie is actually funny.

"American Pie" does have some elements that could have contributed to make another silly movie, like the gross-out humor, the usual share of T&A, the fouled language, in few words, the typical ingredients of a cheap teen movie.

But "American Pie" has key elements that set the movie apart from its predecessors: the cast is kinda charismatic, some of these actors and actresses will be lost in oblivion and others will be famous, but it's hard to deny that these cast is funny and sure they had fun while they were filming "American Pie". Special mention to Eugene Levy, he brings the wisdom of a veteran, and mixes very well with the young newcomers, of course, he steals every scene that he appears on.

The girls in this kind of movies usually are attractive, and thankfully (to the guys) "American Pie" has pretty girls like Tara Reid, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth and Mena Suvari, not all these girls have real acting talent, but at least in "American Pie" they got the work done.

On the other hand, this original "American Pie" movie is the only one truly worthy in the series. I'm sure there are a lot of fans of the second and third movies, but the most demanding audiences will agree that the only decent "American Pie" movie, is this one, the original.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious depiction of teen life.
American Pie is a great comedy depicting the true situations teenagers face everyday. The concept of the movie is not original, as there are many movies like this.

It is viewed by some as immature and grossly stupid at times, but that is the charm of this movie. Right away when we see Jim get caught with the tubesock, it becomes evident that he will be the one that happens to end up in the most embarrasing situations. What is so funny about this movie is the way teen life is depicted. Nothing fake about it. Teens are concerned with parties, sex and other things, and this captures a pretty good picture of what it is like being a teenager growing up. After you see this you will have it stuck in your head. Say what you will about it being immature, but it is guaranteed to keep you laughing as you follow the lives of average teenagers that just want to get laid.

1-0 out of 5 stars Overrated...
Ok, here's the plot:some douchebags make a pact to get laid. Wow, great plot, I'd love to see a movie like that...not. Then at the end when they get laid, it just shows sex scenes. Wow, real funny, teenagers having sex. If I wanted to see people have sex, I'd watch a damn porno. The movie isn't that funny. There's some funny parts, but the movie's still retarded. I hope there's an American Pie movie where Jason Bigg's character gets in a divorce and committs suicide, while his wife becomes a crack whore. That'll show people how much life really sucks. I just wasted $15 on this piece of crap, and now I can't get it back. I hate this movie and Jason Biggs. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Ready to Fall!
Ready to Rumble clearly isn't the greatest movie ever because of its genre, but it does have a clear intention, to focus in on teens and major wrestling fans. Ready to Rumble stars David Arquette ("Scream Trilogy", "Beautiful Girls", "Johns"), Oliver Platt ("Funny Bones", "Lake Placid", "Flatliners"), Scott Caan ("Gone in 60 Seconds","Varsity Blues"), Joe Pantoliano ("The Matrix", TV's "The Sopranos") and Martin Landau ("Ed", "The X-Files").

       Basically, Gordy (Arquette) and Sean (Caan)are die-hard wrestling fans and their favorite wrestler, Jimmy King (Platt) just got kicked out of the WCW and won't be able to return. King got a heavy beating from other wrestlers and his boss, Titus Sinclair (Pantoliano). Now, its up to Gordy and Sean to get Jimmy King back into the ring and become the world wrestling champ once again. King must face Diamond Dallas Page (as himself)again, after he was slaughtered by Page to win back the title. He'll also have to face other wrestlers. Gordy gets help from the head nirto girl, Sasha (Rose McGowan, "Scream","Jawbreaker" TV's "Charmed"). Sean also finds love. Sting and Stone Cold play themselves.
     This movie is basically about two morons who want to get the favorite wrestler back into the ring. It's crude, lewd and bad. It does have some comedic brilliance, but not enough of class, style, or a good script. 2 stars is all I'm giving this movie because it lacks a great plot and certain cinematic brilliances. Arquette, Platt, and Caan are great actors, but this is the lowest for all of them. Arquette, a great actor, is in a stupid movie that really has no taste and holds no significant point. This movie is only recommended to wrestling fans. For all of the others, good luck! And yes, Scott Caan is the son of legendary actor James Caan.

2-0 out of 5 stars Some redeeming value, but not much
Ready to Rumble is not a good movie by any means. As a comedy the jokes are very sophmoric and the two leads give wrestling fans a bad name. However there are some redeeming factors that in some ways make this a better movie.

The plot here is that the current King of Wrestling (Oliver Platt) is brutally dethroned by the an Evil promoter and his henchmen Diamond Dallas Page. From there two bumbling fans go on a quest to get Jimmy King back to the top. Along the way they encounter variouse WCW talent as well as other interesting characters.

Easily the best moments come when either they show wrestling matches and when Marlon Brandow is on the screen. Yes Marlon Brandow is in this and is so over the top that in my opinion steals the show.

However despite the cool wrestling moments and Marlon Brandow there really isn't much to look at here. The only thing worse than what this movie was a majority of the time was the fact that it spun off into a real WCW storyline that really sucked and made to some fans a hated man out of David Arquette. Past that if you really should, rent this... or else I will lay the smackdown on you... wait wrong promotion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just a wrestling movie, a landmark film.
This is a funny movie, including David Arquette, Oliver Platt, and Scott Caan, they make a good team, and I like the part where Scott Caan just had it with this woman. I give it 5 stars, because this isn't just a wrestling movie, it's a landmark film!

2-0 out of 5 stars Tries to be funny, but fails
Summary:
Jimmy King (Oliver Platt) is the 'King' of professional wrestling, where everything is supposed to be fake, right? Well, when King abuses his place as the champion, his manager, Titus Sinclair (Joe Pantoliano), gives Dallas Page the go ahead to make their championship match real. King doesn't actually stand a chance and loses the title.

Watching in horror and dismay are King's two greatest fans - Gordie Boggs (David Arquette) and Sean Dawkins (Scott Caan). Resolving that King was defeated unfairly and believing that King is actually a decent guy, Gordie and Sean decide to find King and help him get his title back. Along the way they sing Pink Floyd with nuns, see Oliver Platt in a dress, have wild sex with one of the wrestling world's dancers, Rose McGowan, and try to stay ahead of Gordie's dad, Richard Lineback, who is a policeman and wants Gordie to become one.

My Comments:
I just want to know one thing, did Oliver Platt do his own stunts? Jimmy King gets beat up on a regular basis and Oliver Platt just doesn't seem to be the kind of guy that could play that role. Anyway...

The movie is kind of funny in that it's making fun of wrestling fans, at least, sort of. It also incorporates a number of actual wrestlers, including Bill Goldberg (I) and Steve Borden (I).

But in the end, the comedic attempts are, well, attempts. The majority of the humor is slapstick potty humor and just isn't that funny. I'm not sure that I laughed out loud even once. It just didn't cut it on the humor end.

Perhaps this is kind of like Zoolander in that you really have to be into the industry (wrestling in this case, fashion in Zoolander) to get the humor and see all of the subtle insinuations. I'm not and I definitely didn't find this to be that funny.

Overall, don't waste your time unless you actually watch 'professional' wrestling or like potty humor. The movie isn't funny, the story is ridiculous, and the wrestling, though supposed to be real, is even more fake than the stuff you see on TV. I gave it two stars for making fun of wrestling fans. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!
The first American Pie started the trend, but American Pie 2 has even more laughs. And it has retained and amplified one important aspect of the original, a somewhat cornball sentimentality that offers a nice counterbalance to the gross sight gags and pervasive atmosphere of salaciousness.

Jason Biggs continues to throw himself into the most embarrassing of situations with admirable gusto, and the movie hinges on his ability to play Jim's most humiliating shenanigans with an odd but appealing, dogged dignity...even when wearing only his drawers. His comic timing is even better than last time, and the movie's best moments come of his straight-faced delivery. And in this sequel you can see how Alyson Hannigan managed to walk off with the most famous line in the original: Given much more weight in American Pie 2, Hannigan is a delight, playing Michelle's offbeat geekiness but hidden warmth to perfection. And her deadpan delivery (the "trumpet" line is bound to become another classic) is beautiful as always. Shannon Elizabeth is surprisingly lacklustre, and Tara Reid is still stuck with the most boring character of the bunch, but otherwise the rest of the supporting cast (Seann William Scott is especially good, reprising uber-jock Stifler) is great, and the sight and verbal gags come faster and tighter than in the original, with the benefit of familiar characters. The famous central gag (won't give it away) had me belly-laughing for a solid minute, something I haven't done since the first time I saw Clerks.

No, it's not cerebral, nor is it an unprecedented classic. But for a good rowdy night of teen comedy, American Pie 2 hits the spot.

5-0 out of 5 stars Go see this! Best sequel of the summer!
I've seen many movies this summer. As many of you know, there has been many dissapointing movies out there this summer.(Tomb Raider, A.I.,Scary Movie 2,and Planet of the Apes to name a few.) Sequels have been horrible lately, like Scary Movie 2 and Jurassic Park 3. Rush hour 2 was one of the better sequels this summer. When I went to see AP2 with my friends yesterday, I was expecting another sequel that was put together way too fast and didn't have any thought in it. I loved the first one, and I probably have watched the American Pie DVD about 100 times! I bought my popcorn and my drink and was ready for another bad sequel. Man, was I so wrong. AP2 was probably my favorite movie of the summer. I barely ate any of my popcorn or drank any of my drink I was laughing so hard. I thank Universal Studios for giving Eugene Levy a bigger part in this movie. Seann William Scott is extremely funny in this movie, with all his comments. I don't want to spoil it for all you people who haven't seen this movie, but there will be lesbians, some phone sex between Mena Suvari(Heather), and Chris Klein(Oz), a "champagne" bath for Seann William Scott(Stifler), an accident with superglue for Jason Biggs(Jim), the rule of three, and more of Eddie Kaye Thomas and Stifler's mom(What a MILF!just kiddin!) Go see this movie, You will not be dissapointed. It is the funniest, crudest movie of the summer. NOT for Kids!

1-0 out of 5 stars Awful
Maybe the worst movie i've ever seen. Boring, very TALENTLESS actors, and bad jokes. Primitive film for primitive people.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow....what a great sequel!
I loved the first American Pie movie; I would watch it almost weekly with friends. I didn't think any movie could top it, but American Pie 2 comes very close, and at times, is better than the original. I also wanted to start off by saying, to the viewers who complain about such movies having too much raunchy humor, and therefore rating it low, you have to know going into these movies that they will be like this. Some people need to seriously lighten up, quit being a stiff, and have a good laugh every now and then. Also, to the last 1 star guy on here, you need a reality check. I'm not saying that the military is a bad thing, but you can't underrate the value of a college education/experience. It gives people who aren't born for the military (which is most of us) a chance to get a career and contribute to society, and it's also a social experience (the social experience aspect of college is probably more beneficial in the long run than even the educational aspect). And Road Trip was a great movie as well; LIGHTEN UP! (or quit your complaining). The only people that make your generation look bad are people like you!!

Anyway, Jason Biggs is in his usual role as Jim, despite getting laid last movie by a band geek, of having zero confidence in his ability to score (or do much else, for that matter). I disliked the opening scene, especially with that cheesy line "this is my first time......since my.....first time....so....technically, it's my second time," which made me weary about this movie. However, when Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) enters the room, the scene became hilarious, as Eugene perfectly plays the nimwitted father who is completely inept to the fact that no kid wants his/her father to see him/her naked. The movie continues as Stifler (Sean William Scott) and Oz (Chris Klien) discuss how many girls a man is supposed to have sex with during one year at college. This scene could have been a waste of a few minutes, but Scott, being the acting prodigy that he is, knows how to play the cocky card while not coming off as a complete a$$hole. When the four boys Oz, Jim, Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), and Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) later meet at their local diner, Finch comes off as this sex god, having gotten laid with a Japanese girl in an art museum, his psychology professor, and of course, Stifler's mom. Finch and Stifler steal the show this time around, as the two have amazing chemistry as enemies. Stifler constantly makes fun of Finch's practice of tantric sex, and Finch constantly practices his tantra in various places just to piss off Stifler (like the plant in the house that the boys rent for the summer), as well as.......well, I won't reveal the ending. They rent this house to throw monster parties, and to help Jim have amazing sex with Nadia when she plans to visit him at the summer. Jim also gets practice from the nerd he "scored" with last time around, and when she told him that he sucked, I laughed my ass off! (not only at how she said it, but Jason Biggs needs to be told he sucks, and I relished that moment). Also, the scene where Jim is mistaken for a trombone king Petey is very poorly done (what a surprise, since Biggs is a the forefront of the whole scene). He isn't as bad in this sequel as he was in the first one, but overall, Biggs isn't even close to the talent of the others (which is how he usually is). However, I do have to admit that the superglue scene was quite funny, mostly because we expect lousy things to happen to Jim, though I have to give him credit for putting effort into at least that scene. Despite any other minor flaws this movie may have, it overall comes across as a strong comedy that often goes for the gut, and succeeds about 98% of the time, with viewers in constant pursuit of fresh air after laughing so hard.
