How anyone can say this movie tries to be another American Pie is beyond me. Slackers is brilliant. It's not just another teen movie. The only resemblance it does have to American Pie and its vast army of copies is the fact that they decided to throw in a couple of warped gross-out scenes, almost as afterthoughts, probably to attract the teenage crowd. Whereas American Pie drew its laughter from vulgar visual gags, it's the characters who make this one funny. Jason Schwartzman should win an Oscar for playing the most diabolical movie villain in recent memory. Seriously, this guy is cracked. He makes Hannibal Lecter look like Mr. Rogers. Don't go in expecting just another American Pie. Slackers is something like a cross between Rushmore and Road Trip. For anyone who didn't like it, it was probably too intelligent for them.
