American Pie 2 (2001)

The summer after their first year of college, Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs), Kevin Myers (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Chris “Oz” Ostreicher (Chris Klein) and Paul Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) decide to rent a beach house and get stuck with Steve Stiffler (Seann William Scott). Everyone’s lives are slightly moved ahead, as Jim is about to meet with Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) at the end of the summer and gets sexual experience from Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), Kevin reconnects with Vicky (Tara Reid), Oz is in a long distance relationship with Heather (Mena Suvari) and Paul is longing for another evening with Stiffler’s mother (Jennifer Coolidge).

Directed by James B. Rogers and written by Adam Herz, who also wrote the original, this at least carries everyone through to a logical next step in their lives while having a great lesson that you should  get past high school. You should also not use super glue to jerk off and always go after geeky girls, which really is the best thing you can get from this movie.

In the scene where Stifler, Jim and Finch get caught by the next door lesbian neighbors and are coerced into removing their clothes, you can barely see Eddie Kaye Thomas in the shots. That’s because he was genuinely laughing so hard that they had to edit around him as he broke character.

Two scenes were cut: Oz and Heather cheating on each other and the character of Stifler’s dad played by the late Chris Penn. It just didn’t work for the movie and they were removed after test screenings.

There was a lot of secrecy over what would happen in this movie and it was shot with the fake names Secret Disguise, Semi-Secret Disguise, Semi, Semi-Secret Disguise, The Not-So-Secret Disguise and American Pie 2: The Heretic.
