There was this one time, at band camp…
If the Star Wars phenomenon started with “Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…”, I sure hope the American Pie franchise ends with this terrible excuse for a sequel, aptly named American Pie: Band Camp. Looking at the poster, Eugene Levy (Jim’s Dad) is the only familiar face.
You’d think at least Stiffler will be here to provide some mindless entertainment. You’re lucky … kinda. Get that, it’s not the Stiffmeister, it’s his younger brother, Matt.
Problem is, there’s no straight guy for Stiffler to play against.
In previous installments, up to the American Wedding, Jim was the straight guy and Stiffler is the comic relief.
In American Wedding, he had to eat a dog’s shit and pretend he liked it as much as a cholocate truffel. You can’t beat this. The reaction shots were what made the scenes with Stiffler work. Now there’s no reaction from anyone.
I think it’s time to retire the series. The good news is this is a straight-to-video release. You could just wait for the torrent!
