American PieDirector: Paul Weitz
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. Jim is thoroughly obsessed with sex, a fact of which his parents become aware when they discover him performing the sin of Onan with a gym sock while watching scrambled pay-per-view porn. Jim's buddies Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), and Oz (Chris Klein) are no less anxious to relieve themselves of their virginity, so they all make a pledge: they will go to bed with a woman in the three weeks before senior prom or die trying. Kevin appears to have the advantage, since he already has a girlfriend, Vicky (Tara Reid), but before he ventures into the Final Frontier, Kevin is urged to consult "The Bible," a hand-written how-to manual possessing erotic wisdom passed down through the ages. Oz is a good-looking jock who is actually a nice guy -- which is part of the problem, since he has his heart set on a nice girl, Heather (Mena Suvari), who does not seem the type to leap into bed within 21 days. Finch has no immediate prospects, though Jessica (Natasha Lyonne) is in a position to know if those rumors about him are true. 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).

Shannon Elabeths breasts were so nice
the reason i love this movie is cause Sean Willam Scott as Sifler if it wasn't for him then the movie would not be cool but its funny and cool cause of Sean god bless you Sean Scott i love you a true fan Megan luminais ps by the way are you single? LoL just wondering
I think Mr. Neff is right. He is always right. We need higher standards of decency and we dont need to be thinking about sex al the time.
American pie is one of those movies that you just love its funny Stifler is also funny i really have to say that this movie deserves two thumps up and five stars!!!!!
This film is a classic american comedy. Full of sex laughs and nudity. Its amazing to watch the original American Pie movie and then watch how te wholo series of films expands and such. A great movie and a must buy.
I love this movie! It's one of my favorite comedy films of all time. It has plenty of gross-out humor. It's definately not for anyone under the age of eighteen.
This Is Such A Great Movie! Everyone Should See It!
this is my favorite movie. when i first saw it i would watch it weekly just because it was so tight. it is the greatest teen movie ever made. more of a guy flick, not reallly a girl flick, but all u guys will love it! its packed with so many funny scenes and a great storyline. speaking of it is one of the only funny movie with an actual storyline
IT IS SOO FUNNY!! I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE 2ND ONE!
Mr. Shuler's characterization of himself as a middle-aged adolescent is most apt. His tastes lean toward the perverse. As a clergyman, I find the idea of pretended copulation with an inanimate object singularly revolting, atavistically narcisstic and -- in plain English -- downright IMMORAL. I support James Dobson and Jerry Falwell in their admirable efforts to clean up this great land of ours.
