American Pie Reviews

American Pie Review
by Ram Samudrala
When I saw the previews for /American Pie/, I thought it was over-rated. When I saw the film, my opinion didn't change much. Sure, there are a few laughs here and there, but in my view, it isn't of the same calibre as /There's Something About Mary/,...more

American Pie Review
by Jerry Saravia
I am not a big fan of gross-out comedies, particularly teenage gross-out comedies a la "Porky's" or the "Animal House" variety. Somehow, the idea that teenagers having nothing more on their heads than sexual promiscuity is not very appetizing. Well,...more

American Pie Review
by Indra Moeljadi
If you take a look at this movie's poster, then you will find this movie probably not worth seeing. No big names and not an attractive title. Probably another high school movie. But if you go and see this movie, all of that will change. more

American Pie Review
by Stephen Graham Jones
In Happiness everything revolved around a young boy's ejaculation, and we all kind of looked away and accepted it. In American Pie, happiness is ejaculation, only now there are enough puerile body fluid jokes that we can't look away. Too, though, the...more

American Pie Review

Following in the grand tradition of comedy classics such as Porkys and Revenge of the Nerds, American Pie arrives in cinemas to relieve the heyday of the smutty college sex comedy. Even though narrowly avoiding a NC-17 rating with a few cuts, American...more

American Pie Review
by Ross Anthony
"Divided we're flawed and weak, but united we ensure our sexual destinies" -- or something like that. Four senior male buddies make a pact to lose their respective virginities by the last of their high school days (i.e. prom night). more

American Pie Review

For adults, while there are funny moments in this film about four high school guys who vow to end their virginity before their impending graduation in three weeks, overall the jokes and dialog are not sharp or clever enough and the movie just rates an...more
American Pie Review
by Steve Rhodes
The big surprise? With this theme, AMERICAN PIE, which spends half of the movie trying to be a teenage version of THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, devotes the other half to a sweet story about the awkwardness of sex and the tenderness of one's first...more

In the interest of full disclosure, I must preface my review of "American Pie" by noting that I am a graduate of Forest Hills Central in suburban Grand Rapids. That's the arch-rival school of East Grand Rapids High, the alma mater of "Pie" author...more
American Pie Review
by Homer Yen
I recall the trials and tribulations of my high school years. It was a period that would mercilessly force me to exit boyhood and thrust me into the unwelcome arms of adulthood. But of all the experiences that I collected throughout those tender years,...more
American Pie Review
by Frankie Paiva
First of all, let me explain why this movie will do so well. Should I go see a terrorist thriller or see a movie where a boy gets freaky with some apple pie? Should I see a western action movie where I see Salma Hayek bear her rear, or a movie where a...more

American Pie Review
by Jeremy McVay
I like comedy. Who doesn't? I'm sure there are those who don't, but I have yet to meet them. Comedy, at its best, reflects our culture. But it does not merely reflect it for observation. Great comedy can make insights into culture in ways that...more
American Pie Review
by Jon Ridge
In trying to give proper praise to AMERICAN PIE, the drop-dead funniest film of 1999, I compare it to other recent teen comedies, like CANT HARDLY WAIT and SHES ALL THAT. Movies which have zero ambition, go for the cheap, easy laugh and nothing...more
American Pie Review

Oh, to be the nice guy...and actually win for a change. That, if you'll allow me to get slightly philosophical for a moment, seems to be one of the key themes behind "American Pie", that perverse Home Economics lesson now playing down at your multiplex....more
American Pie Review

Ever since Cameron Diaz first put *that* stuff in her hair, filmmakers have been trying to out-vulgar the Farrelly Brothers' runaway hit of last year. With its story of four high-school seniors forming a pact to lose their virginity before they...more

American Pie Review
by Jesse Kopelman
This movie is pretty much an updating of _Fast Times at Ridgemont High_. If you haven't seen _Fast Times_, the plot goes something like this: teenagers think about having and sometimes have sex. Just as today's world is faster paced than that of the dawn...more

There are a couple of movies this summer that we've been hearing too much about for months. I'm not talking about manufactured hype that comes from huge advertising budgets and star studded Entertainment Tonight appearances. Rather, I'm talking about...more

American Pie acknowledges a cold, hard fact that most movies dont: it is very difficult to get laid. Its four virgin heroes are Jim (Biggs), a chronic masturbator, Kev (Nicholas), who desperately wants to deflower his girlfriend (Reid), Oz (Klein), a...more

If you see the trailer for _American_Pie_ in the theatre, temporarily leave the auditorium. If you see the commercial on TV, change the channel. This raucous teen sex comedy's most powerful weapon is the element of surprise--a tactic that, based on...more
