There are plenty of disappointing sequels, but this may be the worst one.
The American Pie series was on a roll with American Pie 1 & 2, American Wedding and American Reunion. 4 fun, raunchy comedies that we could all enjoy.
But they TOTALLY dropped the ball with American History X.
Here are 5 reasons why American History X is BY FAR the worst film in the American Pie franchise.
1. THEY MADE STIFLER A RACIST
I still don’t get why they did this. Stifler has always been a dick, but he’s a lovable dick. What was the point of making him a murderous neo-Nazi?
2. ALL THE JOKES FALL FLAT
The other American Pie movies are pretty damn funny. But EVERY joke in this one falls flat. They tried way too hard to be dark and offensive. Sad.
3. THEY COMPLETELY CHANGED THE CAST
Where the hell is Jason Biggs? Where the hell is Eugene Levy? Why did they replace Sean William Scott with this “Edward Norton” asshole?
4. IT’S TOO DEPRESSING
We came here to see wacky shenanigans and jokes about Stifler’s hot mom. We don’t need all this curb stomping and prison rape.
5. IT FEELS DISCONNECTED FROM THE AMERICAN PIE CANON
At times, it literally feels like it’s not even supposed to be an American Pie movie.
