I haven’t seen an American Pie film since the first one. At the time, it was pretty amusing (certainly had its moments) and most people who saw it had good things to say about Eugene Levy in it.
Now AP is a franchise with lots of films (seven according to IMDB’s Levy trivia page and I’m not sure if it counts the one I just saw a preview for… something about reconstructing a “sex bible”) which I’m guessing are of… less quality than the first. But Levy seems to be in all of these. Out of curiousity and because I’ll never see these film, is Eugene Levy actually acting in these films or is he totally phoning it in? Is his role in these films something where you’d say “Man, that film sucked but Eugene Levy was pretty funny…”?
I ask this realizing that, like Christopher Walken, Eugene Levy largely acts by playing the part of Eugene Levy. This is coming from someone who enjoys Levy’s performances in the Christopher Guest films but I gotta admit to what’s true.
Edit: Apparently it does include “American Pie VII: Book of Love”
