Customer Reviews

If you like funny movies, you'd like this one as well.
Joel Nicholson
All of the characters are unpleasent for the most part (although Ms. Arquett does a decent job).
Gregorio
Very Good movie for the caliber of actors that are in it.

Anyone that has watched the films in this series since the beginning (American Pie - Unrated (Widescreen Collector's Edition)) is going to inevitably rate this film in comparison to the other films. The first film, much like another film of that same general era (The Matrix (10th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray]) was somewhat ground breaking. It was raw, crude, lewd, and really, really funny thanks to being so lewd and crude. The later films in the series have had that bar to jump over and some have been mildly successful (American Pie Presents - The Naked Mile) while others have been merely amusing. This particular film (Book of Love) seems to fall into that range with nothing to really push it towards a higher rating. For me, I think I'd have to put this one into the same ratings area as American Pie - Band Camp (Unrated Widescreen Edition). While this film is, at least in the Unrated version, loaded with more gratituitous T&A than that earlier film, the story seems to be about as weak as that earlier story was.

There are several cameos in Book of Love that do add to the fun, and a load of extras that add value as well, but personally I'd have to say that this one veers far more to rental territory than to purchase territory. Tread carefully here. If you aren't a fan of the series, then look elsewhere.

Hopefully the next film in the series delivers something a little better for everyone to enjoy.

Once again Universal dumps the high end cameras and transfer into one of their franchises, so the resulting Blu picture and sound are flawless, but in a film that does not qualify. The DTS was mixed perfectly, especially in each fantasy sequence the music didn't drown anything out. The picture was crystal enough to see every pore and flesh tone - and there is a great deal of that. Aside from the cameos and fun fantasy sequences, the movie is forgettable, but the supplements are fun and worth the watch, including:

* Making of, 8:00 minutes. Director intros with how he dislikes the usual fare so this and all of the others could have been one long documentary of gags, outtakes and fun on the set. This one covers some brief interviews and gags.
* Love Manual, 5:50 minutes. The hot girls from the movie and some of the cameo guys give their take on how to get with ladies.
* Trivia. One of the cast goes around the set and tests people's memory on some good American Pie trivia. Enjoyable.
* Pie-Cons, 6:50 minutes. Interviews with the long list of cameos in this film.
* Deleted scenes, 11:14 minutes. Plenty of extra skin and forgettable dialogue.
* Gag Reel, 4:00 minutes. More outtakes and adlib stuff - hilarious.
* From the Set, 10 clips totaling 19 minutes. Essentially more deleted scenes with lots of extra ladies sans their clothing in funny sequences. Obviously this crew/cast had a good time making the film.

The extended is only a few minutes longer and there really isn't that much of a difference to warrant watching this twice. I would say bookmark the few worthy music scenes on your BD player (love that feature) watch the supplements and skip the rest, but the quality and extras make this a worthy addition to your library if you like the franchise. 3 stars for the positives listed. Enjoy.

The AMERICAN PIE series is by far my favorite group of comedy films so I hate to say that BOOK OF LOVE is a bad film but it really is. Certainly none of these films are CITIZEN KANE but they have all had some funny gags, likeable and attractive characters and fairly decent scripts (the first four in particular). Sadly this group of actors (who are supposed to be in high school but look to be in their late twenties) can't even pull off this lame material which includes screwing a peanut butter sandwich, oral sex from the family dog and the "Stiffler" character getting plowed in the rear by a CGI moose. All of the characters are unpleasent for the most part (although Ms. Arquett does a decent job). There is really no one to identify with in this film. This time around no attempt is made to link Stiffler with his previous onscreen relatives and his character amounts to little more than a cameo. Even Eugene Levy phones it in on this one. The entire premise of the film is also extremely unlikely and rather stupid. Hopefully the inevitable part 8 will get back on track. This one is true mess.

"American Pie Presents : The Book Of Love" is the 4th in the straight to DVD series of this franchise and the 7th overall. After having seen and written reviews for the all others in the "Presents" franchise, I really don't know what else could be said in reviews if more came out. Basically, what you always think the movie is, well, usually is. The same can be said for this latest installment in the long running frnachise. I have given this movie three stars, when it should probably be less. I have given 2 stars for some of the other entries in the straight to DVD films since I figured they were the best they were going to be, but I gave this one three simply because it it slightly better than the three previous entires in the series. Does this make sense?. You pretty much know the score and how these are all by the numbers, but let's get on with it.

We are back at East Great Falls High School, the setting of the original film from 1999. We are introduced to a new team of high school buddies who have girls and sex on the brain. Nothing new. One is the good guy who longs for his dream girl. He is the "Jim" of the bunch. His two buddies are the usual. One is constantly looking to hook up with the popular cheerleader babe, and the other wants to get more active with his girlfriend. After an ensuing fire in the library, our trio of boys discover the lengendary Book Of Love. The Book Of Love is a sex guide on how to get it and get with girls that has been passed down from generation to generation of students, with each one adding new tips and techniques to the book. Our guys think they have found the holy grail.
