Where do you start... from flutes to pies, this pioneer teen movie has it all. I'm pretty sure this was the first DVD I ever saw, back in 2000. I do remember owing $20 in late fees to blockbuster video for keeping it so long after it was due back. It was worth it! This has classic written all over it, I think it's safe to say that anyone that was involved with this movie has a great career now because of it. American pie has an absolute all star cast led by the Great Jason biggs Anyone who enjoys comedy, teen comedy must see this movie! honestly you need to watch more movies if you <more>
"American Pie" may be the best teen movie ever made. The acting is great, and the story is full of heart, and very realistic. Some of the feelings the characters had were the same that I have had before, and in that sense this movie really connected with me. Not to mention it is sooooo funny. Every teenager should see "American Pie!"
THIS is a comedy!! (by ili_o_matt_mcgregor_o_il)
American Pie tells the story of 4 young boys who are "unlucky" in love and all vow to loose their virginity before their High School prom night. With some great laughs scattered in along the way along with great acting talents this movie is a real treat. I first watched this movie last year for the first time I just turned 15 and I suddenly realised how BAD some "comedy" films can be now-a-days. This film is the prime example of how a comedy aspect that, at one point was so original, is now tarnished by some of the movies that are produced now a days. Some of these <more>
movies are jokes now a days with basically the same story line and characters ALTHOUGH REMAINED! , and all has a link back to sex!!!! American Pie is the first movie ever to do this sort of broad comedy and pulls it off very well and is a great film, although some films have copied the idea of this one and has dressed it up and makes it become quite a sick and offensive theme now-a-days. 10 years after this movie was made .. it's a classic and always will be. I love all of the first 3 movies with the original cast and was quite disappointed though i must say with one element in the third movie, which is that some characters do not return. I loved the characters Ozz, Vicky, Jessica and Heather and I thought that they all deserved back in the third and, especially Vicky as she and Kevin had a relationship in the 1st one and an awkward meeting in the 2nd and I thought that it would really pay-off seeing all of the main characters back together for one last time. But this didn't happen and, apart from this, all of the first 3 films are gems in my opinion. American Pie/American Pie 2/American Pie 3: The Wedding: FANTASTIC TRILOGY!! GIVE 'EM A TRY!! Rating: 10/10.
Since the likes of 'Animal house' and 'Porky's' i've waiting for another movie that confronts the funny side of of teenage life, in particular the sexual dilemmas we all have to face at some point in our teens. I hope not to many people deal with them quite like this though American Pie delivers exactly this and plenty more. With some truly hilarious characters and some terrific dialogue, this film will have you in stitches, and contains scenes that will be laughed about for years.As teen comedy films go, this is up there with the best of them, highly recommended 9/10
Hilarious! BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! (by cLoNe)
This movie is lots of fun. It has some offensive jokes in it... VERY OFFENSIVE, but it makes up for it with some romantic scenes as well.The movie is wild and over top with lots of original moments. The best thing about this movie that it's repecting the characters and lets them develop to good and decent people.A very nice feel-good movie. Better watch it with friends.
Nostalgic, classic! (by hwoworang)
Movies like these just arent made anymore! Sums up all of the 90's. Great music, funny and good acting for a for this kind of movie! The sequels are really good too!
Another reason that the summer of '99 is the Season of Comedy (by JeffCNN)
I laughed so hard I spit out half the bucket-o-pop I was drinking, and finally had to stop sipping from its fine nectar, because so many times I was hooting and bending over in joy.There are some slower moments to let you catch your breath and allow for moments of sincerity, but only for a minute. The scenes in the previews the ones you think will ruin the movie for you are expounded on ten-fold, so there are plenty of surprises.During the movie I kept saying, "This is me and my friends when we were in high school!" They were almost the same conversations about life, sex and <more>
girls; just not as frequently, but it's only a two-hour film. Any guy will appreciate American Pie full tilt, and girls will realize just what hoops guys jump through in order to get their attention, let alone in their pants.What added to American Pie is that I liked every character, because the filmmakers didn't feel the urge to give us prototypical teen characters. Their personalities are distinctive, and their situations are all different, which leads to a hilarious finale where we see just how their pact plays out on prom night.As I mentioned before, there are genuine moments on the screen where the guys and gals have revelations of sincerity. It adds a needed depth to a film like this, where it's not just raw, raunchy comedy, but important to the lives of the characters who know more than sex is at stake. Which is another reason to like Pie, there are several slices, and sexual conquest is only one of them.
I have to say that the most fun I had at the movies this summer was when I saw American Pie, the funniest picture I've seen since last summer's There's Something About Mary. This movie has taken the classic teenage boy film Porky's, Revenge of the Nerds and spruced it up for the 90's. It is hilarious from start to finish. If you like physical comedy, gross out comedy, sexual comedy, American Pie has it all. A great ensemble cast of likeable young actors makes this a joy to watch. I think this year's breakout star has to be Chris Klein. He was phenomenal in Election <more>
and he is even better here as a jock who tries to soften his image to score before prom. I have a feeling Klein is going to be Hollywood's next big thing and I hope he has a chance to flex his acting muscles in some different movies I can definitely see this guy in an action film .Also very good is Jason Biggs who plays the sympathetic Jim character, the guy who is least likely to lose his virginity. His antics are very funny to follow and he gets the lion share of the laughs. Finally a huge ovation for Eugene Levy, who gets major laughs as the Jim's dad.
They just do not make them like this anymore (by jeremiloki)
Can you believe it has been 20 years since this film? It is still funny and amusing. The boys were boys, the girls were hot girls and had long hair and flaunted their bodies and the father was super cool. Nowadays we have Daisy of Disney 'Star Wars' with short hair and looking all 'I have a chip on my shoulder' .. aaarrrgh I am going to stop right there. American Pie is funny and you should watch it if you already have not.
