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.
One of the quintessential high school comedies. There's a reason this one hit big.
A long time since my last watch, it's strange how much it looks like a low budget film for the time. Also it's actually fairly cinematic, which was a surprise. It's also not aged terribly, now feels like it can slot in with the best of the genre that the 80's (and John Hughes) pretty much created. Yeah that's right I'm saying American Pie is a classic.
[love is more than words]
It is what it is. There's some good lines in there but it's definitely a teen movie.
Funny movie! I can see why it's a classic!
the most problematically funny film
Such a stupid and harmless movie, this movie is just a lot of fun and by comparison of what we consider raunchy today, is very low-key. And such a great cast of characters too. Even if some things in movie make me unbearably cringe at how stupid it can get.
shout out to Casey Affleck for his random ass cameo.
Just brainless fun!
I do not recommend a vast majority of these films. In fact, a good 80-90% of these are anywhere from…
