younger brother, Matt is sentenced to a summer at the infamous band
camp where he creates even more mischief with hidden cameras and
hot counsellors. But when he falls for fellow "bandie"
Elyse, his efforts to stifle his Stiffmeister ways will surely meet
with outrageous results. Jim's dad returns as a quirky counsellor
who tries to help Stifler's little brother get back on track.
Band Camp continues the sexual adolescence comedy traditions set
by the successful American Pie movie and the sequels that followed.
Instead of Jim
(Jason Biggs) and Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott), this latest
addition to the series continues with the next generation of teenage
mayhem of Steve’s brother, Matt, who was sentenced to band
camp by the school counselor for the prank he pulled at a gradation
ceremony. With the urban legend passed on by Jim that band camps
are filled with sexual activities and wanting to impress Steve,
who is running an adult video business, Matt decides to infiltrates
the band camp with spy cameras to record some of the hearsay sex

sex. The nudity scene was a surprise in this VCD, even though it

Almost all the cast of the American Pie franchise have left and
the only two returning cast from the American Pie franchise are
Eugene Levy (Jim’s dad) who played the camp counselor and

in their roles. What made them funny in the previous installment
wears thin and tedious in this movie.

the crude behavior that Seann William Scott made famous with Steve
Stifler in the first three movies. He even bears a striking resemblance
to Sean William Scott’s character that folks might even think
he is his brother or a younger clone.
sadly, this movie has nothing new to offer. The storyline is basically
reused from the teenage movie formula and American Pie Band Camp
lacks any really well executed jokes that the first American Pie
is well known for. Still if you want to be fairly entertained and
don’t mind the rehash of gags that had been done numerous

certain body parts stuck with foreign objects), American Pie Band
Camp is just the right one for you to camp in front of your VCD
player and TV.
