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.

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!

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

The four male leads are so engaging, and their exploits laced with such slices of real life, that anyone who has been there, done that won't be able to help but have twinges of real feeling for the fresh-faced lads.

Its biggest attraction is that it's roll-in-the-aisles funny.

I laughed loud and often enough...to recommend it even though it could have been more.

The tone is always upbeat and the characters are likable, so it's difficult to take offense at even the grossest jokes.

It casts actors who look plausible and treats sex with honesty and no apologies.

There's nothing wrong with a little T&A. And there's something hilarious about a lot of it.
