American Pie


If anyone over the age of 16 feels this box office hit is too silly to enjoy, I can understand that; after all, the filmmakers look like they findĀ Porkyā€™sĀ (1981) inspiring. It’s not as simple as that, though. This movie has better actors, funnier jokes and there is sweetness and a point to the script about high school kids on a quest to lose their virginity before graduating. The humiliating aspects of these goal-oriented guysā€™ campaign score high points ā€“ the scenes with Jim (Jason Biggs) and his dad (played to perfection by Eugene Levy) trying to communicate are outstanding. A surprisingly tender and likable film.

1999-U.S. 95 min. Color. Directed byĀ Paul Weitz. Screenplay: Adam Herz. Cast: Jason Biggs (Jim Levenstein), Shannon Elizabeth (Nadia), Alyson Hannigan (Michelle Flaherty), Chris Klein, Natasha Lyonne, Thomas Ian Nicholasā€¦ Seann William Scott, Eugene Levy, Mena Suvari, Jennifer Coolidge.

Trivia:Ā Followed by three sequels (as well as five direct-to-DVD/VOD releases, starting withĀ American Pie: Band CampĀ (2005)); the first one isĀ American Pie 2Ā (2001).

Quote:Ā ā€œYou realize weā€™re all going to go to college as virgins. They probably have special dorms for people like us.ā€ (Biggs)
