Here's one a bit like American Pie, but better, with more crazy, and awkward, and embarrassing (well maybe not, but it provided many more laughs than the former, so in some way it was more/better), with a real love story amidst the booze and dues... all things considered I guess it's not all that different after all, but with a fresh set of characters, and craziness, and one long road trip instead of the traditional party theme it feels new. Also: Amish people.
Josh Zuckerman, Amanda Crew and Clark Duke play the main trio (though I guess the cover says that already), and their chemistry is perfect. They complement each other's characters, and all play a central part in the story. I was positively surprised to see Seth Green pop up in a surprise role too, and James Marsden as the crazy brother. Most names are ones I don't know, but they seem familiar, and perfect for the parts they play.
Since this is not a trilogy (or quadrilogy, quintilogy... however far they keep expanding it), the story feels a lot more wholesome than that one series I keep comparing it too. The premise is simple:
A high school senior drives cross-country with his best friends to hook up with a babe he met online... but the way there is full of obstacles! Mostly entertaining ones. It's a movie without all that extraneous depth or emotion, but you do feel for the main character, and the ending... no spoiler. Great watch.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
