Pure, Raunchy Fun

Pros:Just a Lot of Fun to Watch

Cons:Not Rated Version of the DVD is a Let Down

PLOT

American Pie was originally marketed to audiences as the next generation of Porky's. Four guys, approaching the end of their senior year, resolve to lose their virginity on or before prom night. In order to get to that end however, they go through some humiliating moments. See the similarities between the two plot lines?

CAST

Jason Biggs (Jim) is the funniest of the bunch. He is the epitomy of a high school guy - a little geeky looking, not all that cool, and he hasn't a clue what to do with a girl. The dialogue between Jim and his father (Eugene Levy) is some of the most humorous dialogue between parent and teenager that I have watched in a long time. It seems like every time Jim turns around, his father is there, advising him on masturbation.

Kevin played by Thomas Ian Nichola is the only guy in the group that has a steady girlfriend (Vicky). They've gone to third base but haven't been able to get beyond that.

Keanu Reeves-looking Chris Klein (Oz), plays the reformed jock aren't-I-sensitive-now character. I don't consider this his best performance. He was much better in Election.

Finch played by Eddie Kaye Thomas is supposed to be the straight man next to the others. He is a refined young man who would rather make the 16 minute roundtrip home to take care of business then to use the school facilities.

Seann W Scott (Stifler), plays the typical over-the-top, obnoxious jock. It just so happens that he has a hot divorcee mother who every guy is hot for.

Tara Reid (Vicky) is your typical high school girl. Kind of cool, attractive, but pretty unsure about what she wants to do with her life. Like many girls, she needs to hear the "L" word before she goes all the way with a guy.

Heather played by Mena Süväri is actually the most boring character in the movie. She comes off as very sweet and innocent - many years wiser then what she should be at her age.

You may know Alyson Hannigan (Michelle) from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She plays the band geek and is really smarter than she appears.

DVD Considerations

The differences between the Not Rated DVD version and the R rated version:

1) Jim has his pie encounter on the counter fixture in the middle of the kitchen instead of next to the corner kitchen cabinent.

2) The cover of the DVD is different. The R rated version has a picture of almost all of the cast on it. The NR version has three girls on it holding an apple pie - Vicky (Tara Reid), Heather(Mena Süväri), and Alyson Hannigan (Michelle).

3) There is more dialogue between Vicky and Kevin during "their" scenes.

4) When Kevin is examining the sex manual, we get to see actual drawing that show men and women in particular positions.

5) You get to see more of "their" scenes between Heather and Chris. Nothing revealing, just more of them touching each other on the shoulder area.

This DVD also contains commentary that you can listen to throughout the movie.

I'm a little letdown by the NR version because I guess I expected more scenes to be in it then there was.

It's still a fine DVD to own.
