American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (2009)

This was Sherman Hemsley’s last movie and not his worst — Ghost Fever may be one of the worst movies I’ve ever watched and just drink in how bad that must make it — and also the sixth American Pie film.

It starts with Rob Shearson (Bug Hall, who was Alfalfa in the modern Little Rascals) masturbating with a sandwich, his dog eating it and him finishing in his mutt’s mouth. If you thought, “That having sex with a pie thing was racy,” bad news. He’s also in love with Heidi (Beth Behrs, who went on to be in 2 Broke Girls) who is ready to give it up to just about any guy, so you know, why not Rob?

His friends Nathan Kevin M. Horton) and Lube (Brandon Hardesty) are also virgins, bringing this back to the storyline of the original American Pie. This also has the Book of Love from that movie, which was originally written by Noah Levenstein (Eugene Levy).

I kind of like what they were going for in this, putting Curtis Armstrong in the cast as a teacher, Rosanna Arquette as Rob’s mom and even finding a role for Jim Wynorski. Hey — let him direct one of these! It also goes all in with a moose sodomizing someone, vacuum cleaner masturbation and an old sex worker dying mid-fellatio. This goes for it.

This was directed by John Putch, who was Sean Brody in Jaws 3D and David H. Steinberg, who also wrote Kindergarten Cop 2.

American Pie Presents: The Book of Love gets back to what makes these movies work, like featuring the hangout Dog Years and having sweetness along with the gross jokes. If you look closely at the signatures in the book in the movie, you can see the autographs of Jim Levenstein, Kevin Myers, Chris Ostreicher, Steve Stiffler, Dwight Stiffler, Matt Stiffler and Eric Stiffler.
