3.0 out of 5 stars Not as "smart" as its predecessors, January 24, 2006
This review is from: American Pie Presents: Band Camp (Unrated Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
American Pie Band Camp is a spin-off (not a sequel) to the previous American Pie movies. It mentions some of the characters and events from previous movies, but it NOT otherwise related except through Stifler's younger brother. His brother pulls a prank on the band and is forced to go to band camp with them over the summer. It's the typical cool kid finding out that the dorks aren't all that bad.

While the previous American Pie movies were slapstick comedy and full of tasteless, yet hilarious humor, there were elements of wittiness and impeccable timing to the jokes. American Pie Band Camp was just some random breasts and overdone acting. Yeah, the characters in the other American Pie movies were over-the-top, but they were well-acted over-the-top. I liked the kid who played Stifler's brother because you could really believe he was related to Stifler, but he was just too much. Everyone was just a little too much of whatever stereotype they were supposed to be playing. It's like it was Not Another Team Movie, and it was just a parody of itself. There are some parts that are really funny, where I laughed out loud, but the rest of the movie was pretty much awful...

It's a movie to rent if you want something light-hearted to have in the background while you're doing something else. If you don't expect another American Pie then the movie isn't that bad.
