When Kevin and Vicky get to their room, Kevin starts taking out candles from the drawer on the nightstand. When they are lying in bed, the candles are lit, when they are getting started, the candles are still lit, but during the last shot, the candles are nowhere to be seen. See more »
What you need to do is learn how to press a girl's buttons. You have to give her what she's never had.
Let me give you a hint. "Ohh, Kev!" "Uhh." "Yeah!" Comprende?
You mean an orgasm.
You got it, stud!
Well, you know, I'm-l'm pretty sure that I've - given her a...
No, you haven't.
Well, there was one time...

Some versions shown by Sky Television in the UK contain different and extra scenes including:
The scene in which Oz turns up for the Music Recital, there is a scene which is changed, where Albert asks "D-Does this mean I'm not gonna get to do the duet?" and a choir buddy says "Albert you suck". Then they cut to a long shot of Oz and Heather kissing. In other versions Oz says "Albert, you suck..." and it cuts straight to the next scene.
Stifler mentions to the Lacrosse team after Oz has run off, "Guys, I don't think he's coming back...", in other versions this scene is cut completely.
Extra shots when Oz runs from the Lacrosse game, and asks a person for directions.
After Vicky telling Kevin that she wants to have sex, extra scenes are included, including Vicky dancing in the mirror and Kevin looking in the mirror while putting condoms in his jacket pocket.
Another reason that the summer of '99 is the Season of Comedy
I laughed so hard I spit out half the bucket-o-pop I was drinking, and finally had to stop sipping from its fine nectar, because so many times I was hooting and bending over in joy.
There are some slower moments to let you catch your breath and allow for moments of sincerity, but only for a minute. The scenes in the previews (the ones you think will ruin the movie for you) are expounded on ten-fold, so there are plenty of surprises.
During the movie I kept saying, "This is me and my friends when we were in high school!" They were almost the same conversations about life, sex and girls; just not as frequently, but it's only a two-hour film. Any guy will appreciate American Pie full tilt, and girls will realize just what hoops guys jump through in order to get their attention, let alone in their pants.
What added to American Pie is that I liked every character, because the filmmakers didn't feel the urge to give us prototypical teen characters. Their personalities are distinctive, and their situations are all different, which leads to a hilarious finale where we see just how their pact plays out on prom night.
As I mentioned before, there are genuine moments on the screen where the guys and gals have revelations of sincerity. It adds a needed depth to a film like this, where it's not just raw, raunchy comedy, but important to the lives of the characters who know more than sex is at stake. Which is another reason to like Pie, there are several slices, and sexual conquest is only one of them.
