American Pie

Caught American Pie 2 yesterday. It's one of those movies that seem to tranverse genres and redefine boundaries. It's undoubtly crass and flippant with sexual content. It presents situations one associates only with slapstick comedy of the Stephen Chow era. Yet the writers have managed to add a Mr. Hollandish "feel-good" touch to it all. I can only stand back and admire this work of art. The combination of noble values such as friendship amidst the bumbling forays into sexuality typical of teenagers is tightly woven, almost amalgamated. The characters are portrayed with an innocence that we can all relate to, as well as the universal desire for our youths to last forever. So we have here a movie about friends, old friends, and their discovery of the new world adulthood presents to them.
