  1. In addition to being extremely funny, the film has a warm spirit and respect for the characters.
  2. 80
    Pie has some nice surprises and is enjoyable in a smutty, sitcom way. It offers up the outrageousness of "There's Something About Mary" without wallowing in cruelty.
  3. 75
    Guaranteed to beguile anyone who can remember the joy -- and agony -- of anticipating the first time.
  4. Reviewed by: Jeff Giles
    A surprisingly earnest and cautionary movie, careful to attract female viewers and not freak parents out too badly.
  5. A limp excuse for a coming-of-age flick, more interested in sexploits than sex, more adept at gross-out than girls.
  6. I'd appreciate toilet humor more if it weren't so often so unimaginative.

    Pie tells the tale of high school seniors searching for sex, love, and acceptance in the world. Yes, the film is raunchy and crude, but it is also hilarious from start to finish, and has a warm spirit and well developed characters. Expand

    If you hadn't seen this movie yet you should see it right now. Of course im not insisting you guys to watch it if you don't like teen movies but its classic of this kind of comedy.I mean it! This might look little bit stupid because its like a "stupid comedy" Thats how i like to call movies like this.Actually they aren't stupid at all it's very hard to create jokes like this and make a movie like this.But I could hardly recommend this movie if you are looking for different kind of comedy something opposite from teens movie like good rated movie with good well known actor and a good storyline or a family comedy because it would be pretty weird watching movies with your children or with your parent (depends who you are). This movie is way different is about teenagers life, and
    their jokes. I could say this was one of the best of this kind of
    comedy i have ever seen! if someone asks for a comedy about teens first
    movie i say is "American pie". This movie would be best if you're
    looking for something really easy and very hilarious to watch as I
    said already. Thanks for reading

    American Pie is no teen movie we haven't seen before, but its strong performances, huge amounts of heart, lovable characters, and plenty of laughs ;American Pie is a solid and memorable comedy. I give this movie 86%. Expand

    A god damned classic that every teenage boy is bound to love. Screw the critics when it comes to movies like American Pie, of course older people will **** all over it because they are just mad they aren't young anymore. Expand

    It had it's moments, but even they were crude and irritating in some way. I'm not sure it deserves it's 58 metascore.

    American Pie is ultra crude and witless. The plot is drab and the actors seem like they didn't read the script.

    A disposable movie from 1999, the movie should've been ditched by Universal studios.
