Anyone who's watched just about any teenage film knows that the greatest evil in this world isn't chemical warfare, ethnic cleansing, or even the nuclear bomb. The worst crime known to man? Why, virginity, of course. As we've learned from countless films--from Summer of '42 to Risky Business--virginity is a criminal burden that one must shed oneself of as quickly as possible. And while many of these films have given the topic a bad name, American Pie quietly sweeps in and gives sex some of its dignity back. Dignity, you may say? How can a film that highlights intercourse with fruit pies, premature ejaculation broadcasted across the Internet, and the gratuitous "gross-out" shots restore the dignity of a genre that's been encumbered with such heavyweights as Porky's and Losin' It? The plot may be typical, with four high school friends swearing to "score" by prom, yet the film rises above the muck with its superior cast, successful and sweet humor, and some actually rather retro values about the meaning and importance of sex. Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, and Eddie Kaye Thomas make up the odd quartet of pals determined to woo, lie, and beg their way to manhood. The young women they pursue are wary girlfriend Vicky (Tara Reid), choir girl Heather (Mena Suvari), band geek Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), and just about any other female who is willing and able. Natasha Lyonne as Jessica, playing a similar role as in Slums of Beverly Hills, is the general adviser to the crowd (when Vicky tells her "I want it to be the right time, the right place," Jessica responds, "It's not a space shuttle launch, it's sex"). The comedic timing hits the mark--especially in the deliberately awkward scenes between Jim (Biggs) and his father (Eugene Levy). And, of course, lessons are learned in this genuinely funny film, which will probably please the adult crowd even more than it will the teenage one. --Jenny Brown --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I was reluctant to see "American Pie", because every time I heard the name of the movie, I really was hearing "just another lame teen movie" or another "Animal House" wannabe, or the "Porky's" of my generation, but worse. Well, one day I had nothing to do, so I decided to watch it. I was very surprised by "American Pie" because the movie is actually funny.
"American Pie" does have some elements that could have contributed to make another silly movie, like the gross-out humor, the usual share of T&A, the fouled language, in few words, the typical ingredients of a cheap teen movie.
But "American Pie" has key elements that set the movie apart from its predecessors: the cast is kinda charismatic, some of these actors and actresses will be lost in oblivion and others will be famous, but it's hard to deny that these cast is funny and sure they had fun while they were filming "American Pie". Special mention to Eugene Levy, he brings the wisdom of a veteran, and mixes very well with the young newcomers, of course, he steals every scene that he appears on.
The girls in this kind of movies usually are attractive, and thankfully (to the guys) "American Pie" has pretty girls like Tara Reid, Alyson Hannigan, Shannon Elizabeth and Mena Suvari, not all these girls have real acting talent, but at least in "American Pie" they got the work done.
On the other hand, this original "American Pie" movie is the only one truly worthy in the series. I'm sure there are a lot of fans of the second and third movies, but the most demanding audiences will agree that the only decent "American Pie" movie, is this one, the original.

American Pie is a great comedy depicting the true situations teenagers face everyday. The concept of the movie is not original, as there are many movies like this. But this one is the best of them all. Four friends, Jim, Finch, Oz and Kevin make a pact to get laid before graduation and the things that ensue are hilarious. It is viewed by some as immature and grossly stupid at times, but that is the charm of this movie. Right away when we see Jim get caught with the tubesock, it becomes evident that he will be the one that happens to end up in the most embarrasing situations. What is so funny about this movie is the way teen life is depicted. Nothing fake about it. Teens are concerned with parties, sex and other things, and this captures a pretty good picture of what it is like being a teenager growing up. After you see this you will have it stuck in your head. Say what you will about it being immature, but it is guaranteed to keep you laughing as you follow the lives of average teenagers that just want to get laid.

I used to hate this movie! It was with no good reason however. When it first came out for rental my roommate rented it. I had started a new job at the time and was unable to watch it because I had to go to bed in order to get up by 7:30 am. It was a week night and my roommate had some friends over. They laughed so much and so loud that I was unable to sleep. I had a hatred toward the movie because of this. As I laid in my bed with a pillow over my head, I thought how funny could that damn movie possibly be!! I know it's a silly reason for me to not have watched the movie till now, but I was so bias due to a nights sleep lost right before starting that new job. So now nearly 5 years later, and after seeing the 2 sequels, I brought myself to buy the unrated version. I now know why they were laughing so loud. It's not only funny but well written with great characters. So even tho I got to know the characters in AP2 and American Wedding, it was nice to rewind and see where it all started. And yes once again it was dumb of me to blame such a cool flick, but I still think my roommate was rude. He knew I had to get up early. Well thanks for listening to my somewhat tragic story, I just felt it would help me to explain how cool the movie turned out to be even after I hated it for so many years ..to no fault of it's own. ~UNRATED DVD includes: A spotlight on location featurette / Commentary with filmmakers / Outtakes / Soundtrack info & music video / Info about cast members & filmmakers / plus more.

while the perverted humour makes a person wonder where the movie is going, the bottom line is that " sex' is on the mind of most teen age boys and they are in a race to ..., drink beer, and do anything their parents told them not to do..!
looking back, it could have been the same things i was capable of but refrained from doing...see the movie and have a laughtually has a message believe it or not. The main focus of the movie being four guys having their heart set onhaving sex before graduating high school, but by the end they discover something different. I won't spoil it for anyone, but it is hilarious.there virginity on Prom night. But the way it turns that the guys either gets dumped or falls in love with their girlfriend truthfully. There are many sweet parts in this movie and it's very touching. Jason Biggs plays Jim. Eugene Levy plays Jim's Dad. Shannon Elizabeth plays Chez Exchange student Nadia. Alyson Hannigan plays Michele. Michele is always telling stories about Band "One Time in Band Camp, I did etc.; A good film that deserves all the attention it received in 1999.ollege students, but let me say as a college student, I hate this movie. So if you are planning to watch this movie, don't... Hey, it gets two stars for a few cheap laughs, but thats not saying a lot. in roles rather different to the ones they are identified with. Mena Suvari (the alluring Lolita-type from American Beauty) plays a nice normal choirgirl, while Alyson Hannigan's (Willow from Buffy: The Vampire Slayer) character's antics 'one time, at band camp' would have Giles coughing his tea all over the place in shock.
A great laugh, and sure to amuse anyone who remembers what it's like to be a teenager.
