You'll never look at warm apple pie the same way again! American Pie takes a hysterical look at the goal of four "unlucky in love" high school friends who make the ultimate pact: lose their virginity by prom night. As they try to manipulate their way into the...hearts of some of their classmates, their plans often backfire with hilarity. One fails to score with the sexy foreign exchange student and then makes a last ditch effort with a band member who has an interesting way with her flute, while another is so desperate he actually hires someone to give him a "reputation." Follow the raging hormones of four teenage boys and their girls as they gear up for the most important night of their lives...the prom? Sit back and enjoy a piece of America's #1 comedy hit!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: So embarrassing it's believable, American Pie succeeds in bringing back the teen movie genre.
A crude piece of work, spottily acted and directed.
June 21, 2017
More likely to gross out adults than kids.
June 21, 2017
It takes almost 30 intolerably slack minutes to set it up and get it rolling.

Common Sense Says
Ultra-raunchy sex comedy is a teen fave -- beware.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that teens talk about having sex explicitly in this film. Girls and boys masturbate, as well as give and get oral sex. There's discussion and depiction of premature ejaculation and faking orgasm, and boys talk about lying to girls to get them to sleep with them. And mostly, teens try to find out about sex without talking to their parents. This is a case where it would be good to watch the film ahead of teens, all of whom know about the series and probably want to watch it.
