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.
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…
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?
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.
Who knew a film about a bunch of friends trying to get laid would be good?
Well, it's not GOOD, but it's FUNNY. Funny enough to entertain the teenage boy in us all.
Bonus points for a Shannon Elizabeth's show stealing boobies (sorry, the teenage boy in me said that).
Really cool!!! Funny!
"Wait, like McDonald's or homemade?"
Haha I never imagine I'd watch this, but when you're snowed in in a Swiss hostel in the Alps, and this is the only thing they have lying around, it just kinda makes sense? Was glad at the very least to see Eugene Levy in something.
I wish I did that in band camp. :/
I hadn't watched this in a few years and god damn, I forgot how enjoyable and straight up hilarious American Pie is. There are times where I was gasping for breath from laughing so hard, something that rarely happens to me with comedies today.
The whole franchise (excluding the straight-to-video entries) is so so great, especially if you watch it at the right age. They don't make teen comedies like this anymore.
Overlooked because of its racy humour and toilet jokes, American Pie is actually a sweet and honest coming of age film, with some great laughs as well.
The American Pie franchise has one hell of a reputation. Ask anyone over the age of 40 or so, and they'll say they're just gross raunchy comedies, but they're really a lot more than that. Well, I mean, except for the straight-to-DVD sequels, they are just that.
American Pie is an honest and humorous look into life as a high schooler, both the fun side and the embarrassment. Everyone has been a teenager, so everyone should be able to relate to some things in this movie, albeit probably not the preposterous stuff like…
While not the best of the flood of late 90s teen comedies, this film has nevertheless reached iconic status for its crass sexual content. What it actually excels in, however, is sneaking sincere emotion regarding friendship, family, and the terror and excitement that comes with coming of age in an era where sex and sexual pressure is omnipresent but sexual education and understanding is almost entirely absent in the lives of teenagers.
I was nineteen when this film was released.
Yup. Still a teenager.
I remember I laughed so hard at it.
Haven't seen it since.
Made me realize one thing:
I was a childish moron when I was nineteen.
Damn, this film is lame!
