James Emanuel Levenstein
, called Jim
, is the main character of the American Pie films American Pie
, American Pie 2
and American Wedding
In the first American Pie film he tries to lose his virginity at the end of high school, by having sex with a Czechoslovakian exchange student, Nadia. Sadly, he is broadcasting it by webcam, but instead of sending the link to his friends, he sent it to the whole school, who saw him get two premature ejaculations.
As Nadia was sent home to Europe, Jim was desperate finding a date for the prom. As everybody knew about him and Nadia, his last oppotunity was asking the band geek Michelle Flaherty. The prom ended with Jim and Michelle having sex and Jim waking up alone.
Jim and his friends rented a house at Lake Michigan in American Pie 2, in the summer break at the end of their freshman year. After keeping contact with Nadia, who travels across the US, Nadia is going to join Jim at the party the last night.
As Jim thinks Nadia wants the best, and Jim doesn't have these thoughts about himself, so he finds Michelle at Tall Oaks Band Camp, and she learns him to be good in bed.
On grounds of a glue accident Jim is not allowed to have sex before the night of the party, and when Nadia turns up earlier than expected, Michelle acts his fake girlfriend. At the party Jim finds out, that it isn't Nadia he wants but Michelle, so he picks up Michelle and takes her back to the party, and they start dating.
In American Wedding, the third in the American Pie series, Jim is getting married to Michelle.
