The producers admit in the DVD commentary that the Arabian Nights prom theme was intentionally chosen "to be the absolute lamest prom theme ever." See more »
Although Czechoslovakia (where Jim says Nadia is from) ceased to exist as a country in 1993, Americans sometimes use the name in discussing Czechy or Slovakia, the two countries it split into. See more »
You and Kevin haven't even done it yet.
That's not why we're going out.
Well, what do you expect him to drive to Cornell for? Milk and cookies?

Version aired on the FX cable network in 2003 remains surprisingly intact. While the words 'fuck' and 'shit', along with all nudity are cut, all refrences to oral sex, masturbation, and orgasm are kept. Phrases such as 'bust my balls', 'flute in my pussy' and Tara Reid screaming 'I'm coming' during orgasm are the same as theatrical release. See more »

Funny Teen Sex Comedy.
'American Pie' is a comedy film directed by Paul and Chris Weitz. It is the first film in the 'American Pie' series.
I was surprised to see the amount of negative reaction to this movie. I remember the first time I saw it and laughed almost the whole way through. The only problem that I had was that I couldn't accept the cast as being an average age of around 17.
The performances were really great for a comedy of the 1990's. Jason Biggs stands out amongst all of them, with his dorky and desperate persona. He blends funny dialog with very funny physical comedy. Also, Alyson Hannigan who has a small but funny role is also great and she says the best line in the movie. Let's talk about Eugene Levi for a second, holy cow what a funny man this guy is. He is so natural as the over sharing father who just makes everybody either uncomfortable or laughing out loud.
What can I say about this movie besides that It's a comedic classic! American Pie perfectly blends a buddy comedy, extreme gross-out humor, and dare I say a coming of age movie. It's one of those movies that is easy to predict when something bad will happen, but that's what made me laugh so hard. Some of the comedic moments are very offensive and this movie could not be made today.
Overall, this movie is a crazy, outrageous, amazingly funny comedy. I recommend it to anybody who isn't easily offended and has a great sense of humor!
