Jim and Michelle stay with Jim’s Dad (Eugene Levy) and this is important because one of the kids that Jim used to baby sit for has grown up to be a teenager. Kara (Ali Cobrin) has the ability to act on the crush she was harboring for Jim all those years ago. Perfect ingredient for awkward relationship moments.
Eugene Levy is a comedic genius. His performance is one of the two actors who pushed this red light movie up to a yellow. His sense of comedic timing is spot on and his grasp of the character are truly enjoyable to watch. Even the tired shtick of Jim and his dad having an uncomfortable conversation is made enjoyable by him. The connection between those two characters is genuine and makes it fun to watch even if it’s a bit time warn. His interaction with Stifler’s mom (Jennifer Coolidge) at the end of the movie was HI-larious. It was a great uncomfortable interaction and slow build up to the delivery of the line “Great movie”. The Popcorn tub’s motion had me laughing so hard I could not breathe.
The other person is Sean William Scott. His character is gross, rude, sexist, and shallow. But he is our gross, rude, sexist and shallow character. This may be because he was written this way but I liked how that is one character that has stayed the same through all of the films.
What do you think of this franchise? Has it run its course or do you think there are still stories to be told here?
