  American Pie Movie Review by Anthony Leong
Jim (Jason Biggs) the film's primary focus, is a clumsy guy who manages to mess up every opportunity to hook up with a member of the opposite sex, in addition to being caught in a series of compromising situations by his father (SCTV alumnus Eugene Levy).
With "American Pie", if one strips out the scatological humor, what remains is little more than a cliché-infested teenage sex-quest with mildly interesting characters and predictable plotting.
Since the beginning of this year, "American Pie" has been hyped as the 'next big thing', a film that would forever change the teen comedy genre.

In December 1999, the question "In the film American Pie, what was the pie made from - cherries or apples?" was the final question asked to Ian Woodley when he became the first person to win £1,000,000 on British television.

 Film Blather: American Pie 2
American Pie 2 reunites the cast members from American Pie in a different setting; instead of being high school seniors looking to score before they graduate, they are now past their first year of college and have gathered in a beach house to enjoy the summer of their lives.
But American Pie 2 is the very definition of "sequelitis." It's coarser, yes, and it pushes the envelope even more, but its heart isn't in it.
Part of the reason why the film doesn't work, I think, is that while in the original the kids' quest for sex was a coming-of-age stepping stone as much as an outlet for their horniness.

 American Pie
Amid the current cycle of films that exist primarily to exhibit an excruciatingly fetching array of young refugees from popular TV shows, I've got to say that it's kinda nice to see a teen movie that harks back, unashamedly, to the days of sexually frank, borderline-offensive comedies about growing up with a dirty mind.
American Pie is the story of four confused, hormone-ravaged young high school seniors who make a pact that each will lose his virginity by prom night.
American Pie is an obviously low-budget sex comedy with outrageously sick humor tacked on, apparently, just for the hell of it.

One of the biggest reasons that "American Pie" worked was because of that, it was a hilarious, raunchy comedy, but when all is said and done, it's actually a very innocent movie...

 Bath University Film Society Reviews: American Pie   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Admittedly the film tends to aim lavatory and low in its line of humour, which is great for its selected audience, but can be tiresome for maturer viewers.
As for the actual story line, well basically the film follows four male friends who are all desperate to lose their virginity before they go away to college, after the school prom, which is only three weeks away.
To reveal any more about the film would be to ruin the impact of the generally funny gags.

 American Pie Film Review - Time Out Film
Notorious for the ludicrous masturbation scene which gives the film its title, this Farrelly-like jock comedy begins as it means to go on, with Jim (Biggs) discovered by his parents unscrambling cable porn and sporting a sock on his 'third foot'.
Weitz's film is enough to put you off having kids.
The strange thing is, while it's told very much from the boys' point of view, the humour is almost entirely at their expense, and actually quite sensitive to a woman's needs.

 Movie Info for American Pie on MSN Movies
It's said that most American men think about sex once every two or three minutes, but this statistic would seriously underestimate the horniness of Jim (Jason Biggs), a high school senior in suburban Michigan.
And Jim is a truly hopeless case -- after his attempted seduction of beautiful Czech exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns out to be a disaster, he ends up going to the prom with Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), an annoyingly chatty band geek who does, however, have a fascinating story about a flute.
American Pie was the directorial debut of Paul Weitz, who, along with his brother Chris Weitz (who served as producer), previously wrote several screenplays, including Antz and Madeline (where they presumably worked all their wholesome ideas out of their system).

In Sydney to promote the latest chapter - American Pie: The Wedding - Biggs agreed that signing up for a third instalment was a big call, but knowing Adam Herz had written the script had sealed the deal.
The film follows the same formula as its two predecessors, and audiences can expect plenty of embarrassing situations that will leave them squirming and hoping it never happens to them.
In American Pie: The Wedding, Biggs's character - the bumbling, awkward but endearing Jim - ties the knot with girlfriend Michelle (Alyson Hannigan).
