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…
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.
There's no doubt this film suitably introduced us to the perfect teen film, it never gets old and is amazingly funny and pretty cringeworthy at times. I was 15 when this film was released and can relate to it in so many different ways, I suppose that's why American Pie will always be one of my favourite comedy films.
Very good i like it.
We meet for the first time, American Pie, embarrassingly enough. A whole generation by my side as I grew up, commenting on its sex filled gags, one liners, the quality of breasts - and I would respond defenseless with an awkward shrug. Aliens was all I needed as a fourteen year old. I did see a piece of you once on television at 21:30. Not you, but one of your mortifying sequels. So I stayed clear.
Seasons change, though. I became intrigued by what the original had to offer and it immensely paid off as I sat down for a viewing. American Pie is exactly what I speculated, but weirdly, I managed to love it. The characters are amiable and…
this film literally represents like every boy at my school and just made me hate them even more (if that's even possible)
What's more to be said about this movie? Its the movie that kind of reinvigorated raunchy teen comedies at a time where every raunchy teen comedy felt the same. "American Pie" isn't a flawless film and it ain't winning any awards but there is this nostalgic charm to it that makes it a classic to some peoples eyes.
Teens thinking about sex. Awkwardness. That pie.
American Pie may be silly, but so are most teenagers. It's honest and funny (at times), has some heart and cares for its characters. That's enough to make a decent movie.
Quality film. Best of the series
Very funny and surprisingly sincere.
Films with scenes where someone has a poo.
