I was really surprised by how good the first movie was. I thought it was going to be some bad Freddie Prinze Jr type of teen movie that was just horrible, but the first movie made me laugh a lot. Now we a sequel that is just as funny as the first. I was glad to see that they didn’t tone it down and get a PG 13 rating like a lot of teen sequels do.

Some jokes are in the trailer, which kind of ruins it, but there’s still lots of jokes, mostly involving Stifler. Who once again, I think stands out from the rest of the cast. The funny thing about most of these people in the movie is I know a lot of people that act like them.

The basic storyline is that most of the people go to the same college ( I think?) and have a party at Stifler’s after school’s over with, until the cops come and he can’t have parties there anymore. So one of the guys finds a house by the beach to stay out all summer. They get a summer job of painting houses for the day, and then party at night. I don’t want to say too much about the jokes because they are a lot funnier when seeing them and not hearing about it first.

Basically, the main characters in this movie were Jim, Stifler, Finch, and the band geek. The band geek’s role is really expanded from the first film. Oz and that other kid were pretty uneventful in this movie. They didn’t really have any funny moments. Even their ex/girlfriends didn’t have a big roll in this. They were just there to look hot I guess. So my advice to you is if you saw the first movie, you will absolutely love this movie. I had tears in my eyes from laughing so much and so did the sold out audience. In some cases, it’s better than the first one, and then it’s not. So they are both about the same, and I think that’s great. If you didn’t see the first one, go rent it on DVD and watch it first before seeing this.

This movie is probably one of the best comedies of the summer.
