American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile

Yep, I just got some info that another American Pie movie is being made...

I guess now they're simply going into the name of "AMERICAN PIE PRESENTS", with this one being "AMERICAN PIE PRESENTS: THE NAKED MILE".


I have no other info other than this so far.

Someday I'll be brave enough to watch Band Camp, I thought the first 3 were hilarious. Obviously it did well enough to warrant another one, I'm mildly curious to see if anybody noteworthy is returning.

Sounds like they're trying to give National Lampoon a run for it's money.

That was my thought as well.

With that logic, you're implying that there's actual money founded in National Lampoon still.

Was there any original cast member from the 1st one in the 4th one besides Eugene Levy?

Hey, Eugene Levy needs work, okay? The man needs to fill his quota of being in at least three films a year. If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't have such marvelous preformances in films like:

Cheaper by the Dozen 2
The Man
New York Minute
Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd
Bringing Down the House
Like Mike

To be fair, I bet the overall gross of those was close to... hmmm.. 200 mil after DVD. Actually I'd like to bump that to 300 mil

What's 'fair' about it? The movies sucked. We don't work for the studios, so there's no need to look at the dollars and cents of it. Hopefully Mr. Levy will start working with quality in mind, not just the paycheck. Otherwise the paycheck movies will start to dry up.

It's hard to believe, but I guess as long as they can keep making $200,000 off of $100,000 movies, they'll keep releasing them.

I didn't include that or A Mighty Wind as both could be considered as actual enjoyable, good movies.

I'm not surprised.

Actually, this could be good. The success of one anthology series may inspire others.

I enjoyed Band Camp more than I was expecting to. I'd give this the same chance I gave that one.

What makes it "fair" is someone liked those movies? Granted you didn't, but a lot of people spent a crap load of money to see those movies.

Just because someone paid to see a movie doesn't mean that they liked it.

I have to say while it wasn't great in any sense there actually some damn funny moments in AP: Band Camp. If you go in knowing the type of humor your going to be getting I can't see Band camp dissapointing any fans of gross-out/teen humor.

I too was one who watched Band Camp, going in with low expectations. IMHO, it was an ok movie.

Yeah, Band Camp wasn't in the same league as the other Pie films but for a direct-to-video sequel it was actually pretty decent. The question is, will they still try to tie it to the previous films lke they did with Band Camp? Or are they just going to start using the term as a generic header a la Nation Lampoon? It's too bad they used the Sherminator character in such a crappy manner in Band Camp, or else maybe he could have anchored this one.

I thought it was ok as it's own seperate movie... But doesn't match up at all next to the original 3.
