The characters you love are back, in American Pie 2 - the comedy hit that`s even more hilariously outrageous than the original!
One year after the prom-night misadventures immortalised `American Pie`, the entire gang has reunited for the summer. Now, an innocent-looking beach house will be transformed into the ultimate party central. Five guys will discover the powerful bonds of friendship... and Super Glue. Five girls will explore the mysteries of love... and the Rule of Three. And from late-night band camp encounters to some very accommodating next-door neighbours, this will be one summer vacation none of them will ever forget!

This is better than it`s predeccessor and has some good scenes!!!! The disc itself is impressive but lacks time on documentaries etc. Excellent must look into.

much better than the first, just lays for laughs, no real sentimental stuffage. video is fine, as you would expect, the dts is wasted on this film, only when music comes into the film does it start to spark up. this film does not need 4 commentaries, to be fair i don`t think it warrants them. however, the director`s is pretty good, the screenwriter`s is quite useful if you wanna screenwrite, the first actor`s commentary is annoying justy because of mena suvari`s consatnt laughing, though the diie thomas track, with his dry wit more than makes up for it. documentary is studil fluff, the deleted scenes and outtakes are nothing special, and thats about it. I would say buy it though that will depend on your film tastes

Drops the sentimentality and storyline of the first film and packs in a few more laughs, sadly this doesn`t make it a better film, in fact quite the opposite. The famed lesbian scene is tedious and could have done with being dropped. Most of the characters become over played and almost characature like, especially Stiffler, who is quite ridiculous. Having said that it is still a very funny film, every bloke who has seen it will double check the labels on any tube from now on... Jim`s dad is of course still the star and is the only character who gets better.

The picture is good and colourful and makes you feel like summer`s actually here.

DTS is wasted but welcome none the less.

Extras are amusing if not stunning.

If you liked the first one - you`ll like this. If you didn`t - you won`t. The video is excellent - as you would expect and the audio is fine - although DTS is included, I wonder why. I do complain a lot when discs don`t carry a DTS track though - so I shouldn`t complain. Jim`s Dad is fantastic once again, I could watch him all day. Special Features are OK, nothing special. But for the price it`s at now, it`s worth getting as long as you enjoyed the first.
