One of the raunchiest and most explicit movies ever released by a major studio.

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.

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.

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.

Arch and pretty dull, with a certain sour undertone. And it just isn't very funny.

A crude piece of work, spottily acted and directed.

Meant to titillate those in need of a teenage sexual message (massage).

It's the regrettable return of the high-profile, low-brow sex comedy, aimed at idiots and hormone-driven teenage boys.

...more gross-out behavior. The result is not so much offensive as it is spectacularly ho-hum.

What could be more amusing than a bunch of sex-obsessed teenagers? Almost anything.

Adam Herz's screenplay is slick, straight-forward funny with zero subtext.

Does for deep dish baked goods what There's Something About Mary did for styling gel.

Among this year's bumper crop of shallow teen-age movies, it is the shallowest and the most prurient.

Pie is more like the C student who later makes a bundle, then comes back to endow the school.

More interested in sexploits than sex, more adept at gross-out than girls.

Director Paul Weitz never quite pulls off the balancing act of There's Something About Mary, in which the Farrellys managed to be goofy and sweet and gross all at once.

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