There are some fine comedic moments that still shine, despite "American Pie" being pretty forgettable...

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

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

A well aimed jab at jock culture full of satisyingly dirty belly laughs.

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

Ultra-raunchy sex comedy is a teen fave -- beware.

Rest of the rancid jokes, listless performances, and mild sauce mischief bury the basic boner novelty of American Pie alive. Eleven years later, it's still the same insufferable, meaningless hooey it always was.

American Pie shows us how little boys know about sex going into it, and how little the act really teaches them about it as well. But the true joy, for us in the audience anyway, is the chase. Vulgar and heartwarming!

The production is amateurish and cheap-looking, but two decent performances are worth mentioning: Chris Klein as a sensitive jock and Alyson Hannigan as a nerdy flute player.

It has likable characters and infectiously funny situations, and that's about all a comedy like this needs.

Dark Horizons
December 30, 2006
A surprisingly large amount of screen time devoted to the sickly sweet morality tales of the movie which would be fine on TV series...but are way too frothy and take up too much time here.

A crude piece of work, spottily acted and directed.

More likely to gross out adults than kids.

American Pie is the latest in a long tradition of immature, self-indulgent comedies that celebrate the recklessness of adolescents.

One of those movies everybody of a certain age should watch.

An affectionate rendering of adolescence in all its questionable glory.
