Girl Power Gone Fizzle: A Review of American Pie Presents: Girls' Rules

2024-04-11

American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules attempts to capture the magic of the original teen sex comedy but with a twist: a female-driven narrative. Set in the familiar halls of East Great Falls High, four senior girls, Annie, Kayla, Michelle, and Stephanie, join forces to achieve their individual goals for their final year.

Unfortunately, the film fails to live up to its “Girls’ Rules” title. While the idea of a female-centric American Pie is interesting, the execution falls flat. The raunchy humor of the originals is replaced with slapstick gags, and the supposed “girl power” feels forced.

While the cast, including Madison Pettis and Lizze Broadway, is energetic, they can’t overcome the script’s shortcomings. Director Mike Elliott seems unsure of the film’s tone, leaving it awkwardly straddling the line between teen comedy and empowerment message.

If you’re looking for a nostalgic return to the world of American Pie, Girls’ Rules will likely disappoint. The film might hold some appeal for a younger audience unfamiliar with the originals, but even then, the humor feels dated and the story predictable. There are far funnier and more empowering movies out there celebrating female friendships.
