Suvari: 'Sugar & Spice" not a bad influence

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Mena Suvari doesn't think her new movie "Sugar & Spice," about gun-toting, bank-robbing high school cheerleaders, will be a bad influence on young people.

Suvari plays one of five girls who wear red-and-blue cheerleader uniforms and evil-looking blond rubber doll masks to stick up a grocery-store bank branch.

"They didn't have bullets and they wore masks," she told reporters recently. "Everything is done so ridiculously. It's not ... it's not real."

The 21-year-old actress said she couldn't divulge much about the sequel to "American Pie," which is due in theaters this summer. She played a wholesome choir girl in the original.

"It'll be really funny," Suvari said, giggling. "It's the first summer after the first year in college, and everybody is pretty much back except for Natasha Lyonne."
