Here's the uncensored version of America's #1 comedy hit, re-edited to include the scenes you couldn't see in theaters. You'll never look at warm apple pie the same way again! American Pie takes a hysterical look at the goal of four "unlucky in love" high school friends who make the ultimate pact: lose their virginity by prom night. As they try to manipulate their way into the...hearts of some of their classmates, their plans often backfire with hilarity. Follow the raging hormones of four teenage boys and their girls as they gear up for the most important night of their lives...the prom?
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.

"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.
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.
