American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile (2006)

The second American Pie direct-to-video film, The Naked Mile is about Erik Stifler (John White), who has been given a pass from his girlfriend Tracy Sterling (Jessy Schram) as he goes to the University of Michigan to visit his cousin Dwight (Steve Talley) and take part in the Naked Mile, a party that involves people, well, running a mile naked and partying. If you were wondering, who comes up with that, it would be Jim’s father (Eugene Levy).

The Naked Mile is a real thing that used to happen at the University of Michigan from 1985 to 2000. Senior students would celebrate their last day of class by running or biking a course through campus. The school was upset that this event was destroying their reputation.

Directed by Joe Nussbaum and written by Eric Lindsay, the main humor in this comes from a fraternity made up of smaller people who end up sleeping with really attractive women. I realize that 2006 is centuries away from today, but this is also so many miles — naked or clothed — from the quality of the American Pie films.

This was shot in Ontario but yet has none of the feel of 80s Canucksploitation sex comedies like RecruitsState ParkScrewballs, OddballsPinball Summer, Meatballs III: Summer JobScrewball Hotel and — how can anyone forget this is part Canadian — Porky’s.
