Glib, raunchy, and gleefully un-PC, this 2000 teen comedy is like a beer blast that refuses to end, as two high school dudes (Adam Boor and Jeffrey Wolinski) cruise their cookie-cutter Chicago suburb and wind up at a block party offering an ample supply of booze, sex, and sophomoric humor. Wolinski wrote the screenplay with his brother Michael, who directs as if he's auditioning for the next American Pie knockoff. But the comic timing is wildly uneven, and the film's taboo busting (including an assortment of ethnic jokes and a white kid in blackface) might be considered crude even by American Pie's standards. The film ends with a string of outtakes, which, given what we've already seen, seems a little redundant. 90 min.
