    The funniest scenes involve Jim and his father, thanks to the brilliant, improvisational skills of Eugene Levy.

    I laughed at American Pie 2, yes, but this is either going to be the last "Pie" movie or they're going to have to get a new angle.

    Very, very funny, albeit inferior in a number of ways to the original.

    Delivers more of what the original promised, with the crudity index up one notch and the humor index down quite a few.

    With the raunch quotient cranked up several notches, the sequel is calculated, cynical and, worse, not funny.

    A remarkably boring comedy.

    This film isn't so much a sequel to the original "American Pie" as a reduction of it.

    A slipshod sequel that looks tossed together over a weekend by people who couldn't care less.

    Lacks both taste and flavor.
