I never heard of this one till I saw this in my DVD store. It happens to be a direct to video release written by Brad Riddell and directed by Steve Rash who weren’t invovled with the original series. I recently saw this on TV and realised why it wasn’t released in theatres.

The film features Stifler’s younger brother Matt Stifler, played by Tad Hilgenbrink whose pranks causes him to be sent to Band Camp. From the original movies, Eugene Levy as Jim’s Dad shows up in a cameo here. There isn’t much of a plot in this one and doesn’t do a good job of matching up to its predecessors. In fact, this spinoff is an insult to the American Pie movies.

The writers try to borrow from the previous movies but don’t do a good job. The film isn’t really funny. It is more like a television show for teens and is totally avoidable. Whether you hated the movies in the American Pie series or loved them, this isn’t a movie that you want to watch unless you are in your teens. Unfortunately though, it seems to have made some money and there is another film in the offing titled American Pie presents the Naked Mile featuring a cousin of the Stifler brothers.
