American Pie 2 is a 2001 comedy film and sequel to American Pie and is the second film in the American Pie film series. It was written byAdam Herz and David H. Steinberg, and directed by J. B. Rogers. The film picks up the story of the four friends from the first film as they reunite during the summer after their first year of college. It holds true to the idea of piling on risqué scenes one after another. It was released in the United States on August 10, 2001, and grossed over $145 million in the US and $142 million overseas on a budget of $30 million. It was followed by another sequel, American Wedding.
The film tells the story of the four friends - Kevin, Jim, Chris ("Oz") and Paul ("Finch") - and their attempts to have the greatest summer party ever. Much of the film takes place at a summer beach house in Grant Harbor, Michigan, per Kevin's older brother's suggestion.
