Jim, Oz, Finch and Kevin are four friends who make a pact that before they graduate they will all lose their virginity. The hard job now is how to reach that goal by prom night.

Whether it is being caught on top of a pie or on the Internet, Jim always ends up with his trusty sex advice from his father. Will they achieve their goal of getting laid by prom night? Or will they learn something much different? Written by Film_Fan

Alternate Versions

Unrated Special Edition DVD & LD contain some extra scenes from the theatrical release to avoid a NC-17 rating:
  • A slightly different version of Jim humping the pie. The theatrical release included Jim's father catching him with the pie while standing near the counter in the kitchen. The unrated version shows Jim's father catching him laying on top of the pie on the bar in the kitchen.
  • Kevin ejaculating into the cup happens onscreen in the unrated version, whereas it happens off-screen in the R-rated version.
  • An extra, more explicit shot of Kevin and the cup of beer. In the unrated version, the cup with semen in it is clear. In the R-rated version, the cup is opaque.
  • More graphic pages from "The Sex Bible".
  • More moaning from Vicki while Kevin puts the Bible to use.
  • Approximately 5 more seconds of Nadia pleasuring herself on Jim's bed.

User Reviews

a well seasoned confection
27 July 1999 | by T-10See all my reviews

American Pie has all the ingredients of a good movie. First, the plot deals with young people in search of their first sexual experience. What could be more basic to the human condition? Second, although obviously fiction, the film has a feeling of reality capturing the awkwardness and anxiety of young people at this point in their lives. Third, it is well written and not always predictable as each young man employs his own strategy, and of course, in the real world things do not always go as planned. Fourth, the cast consists of very talented young actors playing characters which may remind the audience of people they may have known. Fifth, the film has its poignant moments. The final ingredient is this movie is hilarious. The film has one liners, sight gags, and situations that very funny. The audience, which ranged from teenagers to middle age, laughed almost constantly and out loud. CAUTION: This film is rated "R" for sexual situations and the use of alcohol by young people. If you are easily offended or sexual humor makes you uncomfortable, stay away. However, if you are not in the aforementioned, you may enjoy it. Three stars!!!
