Top 10 Best Trilogies: American Pie

American Pie

Feature by Jack Foley

10) Name: American Pie 1, American Pie 2, American Pie: The Wedding

Starring: Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Eugene Levy, Alyson Hannigan, Thomas Ian Nichols, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari, Shannon Elizabeth, Tara Reid, Eddie Kaye Thomas.

Why so great?: It may seem like an unlikely choice but the American Pie consistently delivered the laughs, as well as a liberal dosing of sentiment. In characters like Stifler, you had some genuinely outrageous comic creations while Jason Biggs’ Jim Levenstein was the kind of goofy teen anyone could root for, no matter how embarrassing the situation he constantly found himself in. The American Pie series provided rude, often lewd laughs but it had the heart to match.

Key scenes: Nadia performs her striptease; Jim tries out the pie; Stifler drinks a sperm cocktail (all American Pie); Stifler gets an unlucky golden shower; lesbian temptation; Jim hooks up with Michelle (at band camp) (American Pie 2); Stifler eats poo; Jim shaves his nether regions; Stifler saves the day (American Pie: The Wedding).

Soundbite review: “You may go in for the sicko laughs but you’ll exit with a big goofy grin and warmed cockles. The best of both worlds.!” – Empire on American Pie
