Matt Stifler wants to be just like his big bro, making porn movies and having a good time in college. After sabotaging the school band, he gets sent to band camp where he really doesn't like it at first but then learns how to deal with the bandeez.
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. Whilst Oz begins singing to grab attention and Kevin tries to persuade his girlfriend, Finch tries any easy route of spreading rumors and Jim fails miserably. 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
The scene in which Finch's scooter breaks down in front of Dog Years hot dog shop was unplanned. Director's Paul Weitz and Chris Weitz thought the scene was funny so they decided to leave it in the final cut of the film. See more »
It's spelled "Penta Lax" with a space, not "Pentalax". See more »
So, you're pissed about something, huh? You know what I do when I'm angry? I just play some Bach on my flute. It's so relaxing. I leanred to do that at band camp.
Hold on, uh. You have no idea why I'm angry?
Is it because we have a test tomorrow? Sometimes I get cranky when I know I have a big test to study for.
Yeah, that's pretty much it.
I thought so. Because this one time, at band camp...
What's your name?
Oh. OK. Michelle, um. Do you want to be my date for the prom?

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.
American Pie starts right off with shock value, and while the film relies heavily on it, there's plenty of story and exceptional performances to hold your interest. I attended a sneak preview of what I was told was a rough cut of the film, although there was only one scene that looked unfinished. The underlying story here is that of four high school senior buddies who have made a pact with each other to get laid before they graduate, specifically at the prom. The problem is, only one of them has a serious girlfriend, and she can't decide if she's ready for sex. But where the film really makes an impact is in it's numerous masturbation related scenes. There is one scene particularly early in the film that should test your stomach for the rest of the film's humor. Now while the film may not sound like it has good morals, there is one repeated underlying message, and that is to do what you like and not what you feel pressured to do. Unfortunately, this is NOT the kind of film its target audience should be seeing. At times it makes getting laid seem like the most important part of high school. The strength of the film lies in the fact that everyone who went to a public high school can relate to some aspect portayed here, and in the strong and well-timed performances of the talented cast. If you're mature enough to appreciate the film for its sheer comical performances, then you should really enjoy it. But if you don't like "toilet humor", then you might not find anything appealing with this one. Definitely not a date movie.
