It’s unbelievable how bad American Pie: Band Camp was. As someone who enjoys a teen gross out comedy every once and a while, not to mention having liked all three of the previous American Pie movies to some extent, I didn’t think it was possible for me to dislike the fourth entry in the series as much as I did.

Since none of the main ‘teen’ actors would touch this with a forty foot pole, the only returning actors are Eugene ‘Jim’s Dad’ Levy and Chris ‘The Shermanator’ Owens. The latter is now a guidance counselor at his old stomping grounds, which just so happens to have a second Stifler wrecking havoc at the moment. The final straw for Matt Stifler, who is even more obnoxious than his older brother, is his pepper spraying of the school band’s instruments right before a big recital. As punishment, the Shermanator sends Matt off to Band Camp.

Just about everything that you’d expect to happen does. Longing for his brother’s approval, Matt orders a couple thousands dollars worth of spy equipment with the intention of capturing some band geeks gone wild. He immediately offends everyone at the camp, with the exception of camp dispute settler Mr. Levenstein (Levy), who is substituting for Alyson Hannigan’s character because she recently got pregnant (how convenient). Matt then begins to fall for a Mandy Mooreish girl at the camp. She begins to fall for him, but instantly turns on him when she discovers his spying plan. And then he wins her back, they kiss, the end.

As Matt Stifler, Tad Hilgenbrink is so incredibly loud and vulgar that his character becomes annoying within the first fifteen of the film. Say what you want about Sean William Scott, but he made you (or at least me) love the original Stifler character. To no one’s surprise, Matt Stifler comes off as a very pale imitation of the character. The script Tad had to work with wasn’t even worthy of his limited talents. It’s clichéd up the wazoo, and presents two or three funny gags, fifteen “meh” ones, and a hundred that are best described as criminally unfunny.
Not entirely awful, as the story at least makes sense, but it’s still pretty bad.
