Critic Reviews for American Pie

All Critics (125) | Top Critics (28)

Another giggly gross-out comedy for teenagers, this one somewhat better than most by virtue of a more satisfying ending.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

A crude piece of work, spottily acted and directed.

Time Out
Top Critic

More likely to gross out adults than kids.

Houston Chronicle
Top Critic

It takes almost 30 intolerably slack minutes to set it up and get it rolling.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

It works as well as it does because the central cast - equal parts male and female, lest we forget - are all so uniformly endearing.

Ultra Culture

It may not have invented the genre, but it did bring that genre to a whole new generation.

Audience Reviews for American Pie


A well-placed coming-of-age raging-hormone filled movie for the typical late 1990s teen. Highlighted by obscene comedy and a sublime plot, this first slice of "Pie" is indeed a tasteful one. 4.5/5

It's humor and fun are worth experiencing. It's a film relevant to any generation of teenagers.
