Of the two versions of American Pie on DVD, both include the same Collector's Edition features but the sex gags are a little more graphic in the unrated version. Unfortunately, Universal did not include them as deleted scenes on the R-rated version. The digital transfer looks great, if not a little dark at times, and is presented in anamorphic 1.85:1 widescreen. The Dolby 5.1 Surround is equally good, but most contemporary films transferred straight to digital do not have audio and video problems. The commentary track is probably the best feature on the disc, providing continually humorous insight from director Paul Weitz, producer Chris Weitz, writer Adam Hertz, and actors Eddie Kaye Thomas (Finch), Jason Biggs (Jim), and Seann William Scott (Stifler). The "Spotlight on Location" segment is barely ten minutes long and only offers some surface details about the production. As well, the outtakes really aren't all that funny, although they do include the alternate version of the infamous pie scene. Soundtrack highlights, a trailer, and a "classic quotes" section that jumps to certain lines in the movie are also included. While many DVDs pack a few more worthwhile extras onto the DVD-ROM portion of the disc, here the content consists only of more text about the film. Regardless of which version viewers want, American Pie is a good DVD, but it is not without its missed opportunities.
