In this coming-of-age comedy, a group of friends at the end of their senior year make a pact to lose their virginity by prom night. In their outrageous attempts to fulfill this mission, they come to some surprising, hilarious and often touching realizations about themselves, their friendships, their notions of love, romance and their relations with the opposite sex.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Another giggly gross-out comedy for teenagers, this one somewhat better than most by virtue of a more satisfying ending."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"It takes almost 30 intolerably slack minutes to set it up and get it rolling."
‑ John Patterson, L.A. Weekly
"It works as well as it does because the central cast - equal parts male and female, lest we forget - are all so uniformly endearing."
‑ Charlie Lyne, Ultra Culture
"Ultra-raunchy sex comedy is a teen fave -- beware."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"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."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"A crude piece of work, spottily acted and directed."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"It casts actors who look plausible and treats sex with honesty and no apologies."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"It may not have invented the genre, but it did bring that genre to a whole new generation."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"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."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"It has likable characters and infectiously funny situations, and that's about all a comedy like this needs."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"More likely to gross out adults than kids."
‑ , Houston Chronicle
"Adam Herz's script is wildly uneven but occasionally quite funny."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"A well aimed jab at jock culture full of satisyingly dirty belly laughs."
‑ , Film4
"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!"
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"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."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
