There's nothing like your first piece.
At a high-school party, four friends find that losing their collective virginity isn't as easy as they had thought. But they still believe that they need to do so before college. To motivate themselves, they enter a pact to try to be the first to "score." And of course, the senior prom is their last best chance. As the fateful date draws near, the boys wonder who among them will get lucky.
Ah...the nostalgia. I own all these (except for the crappy straight-to-dvd sequels), I love these movies. I still think this one is the best of the series with American Reunion a close second. This one is the best because it has hits everything on the head. The characters, humor, story, quotes, romance and music. It's the most balanced movie of the franchise. I LOVE American Pie so much that i've seen it I don't know how many times but I know A LOT.
I don't think there will be a 5th but if they were to make one, I wouldn't mind at all going on another ride with these characters. "Reunion" was the funniest of the lot so I think they have one more in them IF they make a 5th one which they probably won't but hey, anyone can dream, right?
While known much more for MILF, band camp anecdotes and baked good banging, American Pie's greatest contribution to the world was the re-birth of the R rated youth comedy. The late 80s saw a transition into PG-13 territory for comedies. Even franchises who began life with a beautiful R like Revenge of the Nerds and Police Academy, had cleaned up their act.
Dominated by fish-out-of-water films and an almost complete absence of the once dominant high school/college comedy, the 90s chugged along with Robin Williams in drag, doofus humor, TV adaptations, Robin Williams in drag again and save for a couple of indies, no mainstream R comedy. The 1-2 punch of There's Something About Mary in 1998 and Pie in…
Arguably the finest teen sex comedy that surfaced on the silver screen at the turn of the new millennium and went on to spawn a franchise consisting of numerous sequels & a direct-to-DVD spin-off series while also influencing pop culture, American Pie is a delightful, hilarious & harmless comedy that does exactly what's expected from it... and then some more.
American Pie tells the story of four high-school seniors who decide to make a pact to lose their virginity before they graduate and attempt to achieve their goal of getting laid by prom night. The plot follows their adventures as almost all of them run into embarrassing but also hilarious situations at one time or another and find the pressure mounting as…
Review In A Nutshell:
The 80s was the peak of teenage angst in American cinema, exploring the relationships that drive our high school experience, tackling subjects of drugs, sex and personal growth. The problem that resulted during this abundance of productions is the lack of variation between each one; tackling the same problems continuously and delivering little uniqueness to its execution, leaving many films as forgettable and tedious. However there are a notable set that stand out from the pack, even up to now standing high above its contemporary peers; examples including The Breakfast Club and The Last American Virgin. American Pie may not deliver its themes as effectively as the films that I have just mentioned, but there is…
No wonder I never made it all the way through this film in the past.
Fuck me, it's lame.
After about 30 minutes I started to play with my phone. You know, the usual. Toss it up in the air and catch it again, do a few flips, and other daring stuff.
After a little while I started to get more adventurous. I tossed it even higher, and did a backflip-twisty thing.
The phone banged against the wall and fell down behind the sofa where it landed hard with an unmistakable bang-kling-kling-roll-sound.
Being too lazy to get up and nudge under the huge ass furniture to retrieve my supposedly smashed phone, I started to sigh heavily and go hunt for…
This came out when I was but a wee high school Grooveman. I haven't watched it since and I dug it more than I thought I would.
this wasn't by choice
i'm so bored
My friend made me watch this and we aren't friends anymore
suck me beautiful!
Stiffler is by far the best character because he treats all the other characters like the assholes that they are.
Cant believe it took me till this long to watch this, not quite your standard 2016 house party, but it's a hilarious film.
it's fun but I had a hard time rooting for these dipshits
"Did you see 'The Little Mermaid' on TV the other night?"
"Ariel, man, she's so hot!"
"She's a mermaid, dude."
"Yeah Oz, but not when she's on land."
High school may not have been like warm apple pie, but this movie certainly makes you feel like it. Well, with a dash of crude humor. A TON of crude humor to be exact.
American Pie changed the high school genre forever. It's raunchy humor and bluntness would not have given us films like Superbad or other R rated teen high school films. Even with the hype and praise this film eternally gets it still stands on its own after almost twenty years.
This film is heavy with 90's culture which gives it a dated feel, but it did not bother me at all. The characters and situations are still relevant to any high school student and are both easily…
