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 all "score." by their senior prom.
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 was really cute and made me happy but I wish the whole movie was about Natasha Lyonne
Warm. Apple. Pie.
Very nostalgic, whether I like it or not
Shouldn't Oz have been able to settle his portion of the pact in 30 seconds? Or, more realistically, in freshman year? Or, most realistically, body-checking those three wieners into their lockers when he overhears that they're virgins?
This was much better than I expected. This is one of the best comedies that has former SCTV cast members (in this case, Eugene Levy), and Levy steals every scene he's in. I'm not sure I'll bother with any of the myriad of sequels, but this was solid and very much worth my effort. A fine contemporary coming-of-age story, with a lot of charm.
In American Pie, you get to see each high school persona on an adventure of getting laid. It's funny, it's crass, it's slightly dated, and it's ridiculous. Jason Biggs is kind of a terrible actor, but he works well as a sad sack of a human being, trying to "get it in." Eugene Levy steals the show with ease. The film is admittedly a bit inconsistent (the second-half being a little short on laughs), and we've seen a thousand movies like it, but the film still does it better than most. SUPERBAD is still the king.
The Breakfast Club/Mean Girls of the 90s. Love this movie.
A quotable, heartfelt, and above all hilarious coming of age teen comedy. Few movies are able to balance really raunchy humor with genuine heart but "American Pie" pulls it off with flying colors. The terrific cast and likeable characters are also something to mention.
MILF! MILF! MILF! MILF!
This movie is so great. The series is one of my favorite comedy series. Behind all the dick jokes and over-the-top gags, the movie has a ton of heart. And thats something that so many comedies are missing nowadays. Memorable characters are what make this series for me. If you think about it, the movies are mainly about the 5 guys' friendship.
To me, this movie is perfect and fantastic.
