"American Pie Presents: Girls Rules"
Directed by Mike Elliott, the American Pie franchise returns after an 8-year absence with a new direct-to-video sequel, Girls Rules. The fifth in the American Pie Presents DTV spinoff series, the gender-reversed Girls Rules finds four high school seniors making a pact to pursue their inner-most desire before they head off to college. Unbeknownst to each other, the friends target new boy at school Grant (Darren Barnet) to fulfill their needs. The cast is headlined by Madison Pettis as Annie, Piper Curda as Kayla, Natasha Behnam as Michelle, and Lizze Broadway as Stephanie, a Stifler by name and a Stifler by nature. American Pie Presents: Girls Rules is now available on digital and DVD.
