They weren’t quite masterpieces, but there were some nice ones in the American Pie flicks.
Resurrecting and popularizing bawdy comedy was a major accomplishment for the original American Pie, which was a comedic game-changer in film.
To keep the magic going as long as possible, the studios aimed to build it into an unprecedented franchise for its period. The gang’s antics drew large crowds to the movies, where they laughed along with the gags. While the main films were no longer being produced, the company continued to put out spinoffs that were loosely tied to the setting of the originals.
Kristen Palamara updated the article on April 10th, 2021. As of now, there are a total of nine American Pie films, but it appears that there may be more in the future that will follow characters from the original ensemble. The American Pie film series debuted in 1999 and is still going strong in 2020, with new installments being released every year. As long as there are fresh stories to be told in the universe, people will continue to go to the newer movies even if they aren’t as entertaining as the original films.
1. American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules (2020) 3.7/10
Four high school seniors have finally decided to take control of their life and achieve their dreams in their final year of high school. There’s no limit to what these girls will do to get what they want in this racy flick.
The film is the most recent and lowest rated in the series, even though it explored fresh ideas and focused more on the female characters. Eugene Levy, who has appeared in every previous film in the series, did not appear in this film.
2. American Pie Presents: The Book Of Love (2009) 4.8/10
An episode of the spin-off series American Pie Presents: The Book Of Love, which debuted recently, is one that has received the lowest ratings of the entire franchise. Ten years after the events of the original film, a gang of teenagers are searching for the “Bible” that Kevin Myers used in the original.
Trying to reassemble “The Bible” after it was destroyed requires tracking down every person who has made a single contribution over the course of its history. Running into Jim’s father Noah Levenstein, who is the link between the original cast and the current generation of actors.
3. American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile (2006) 5.1/10
As the cousin of Steve and Matt Stifler from the main franchise, Erik Stifler is free to do anything he wants this weekend thanks to his girlfriend, so he heads to the campus of an American university to participate in The Naked Mile. Erik Stifler
Dwight, Erik’s eccentric cousin who is already in college, tries to get him out of his shell by introducing him to the college party culture, which is designed to break him out of his shell. Having a Stifler in a frat raucous scene is another way the company and writers kept the franchise moving forward without the core cast members tied to the plot. Unlike Book Of Love, which starred a “Stifler,” this film was neither liked nor hated by critics or audiences.
4. American Pie Presents: Band Camp (2005) 5.1/10
Eugene Levy and Chris Owen reprised their roles as Noah Levenstein and Sherman in American Pie Presents: Band Camp, which was a bigger hit than any of the subsequent sequels.
Actor Tad Hilgenbrink actually did a fairly good job emulating Seann William Scott’s mannerisms as Matt Stifler, who is ordered to attend band camp after a prank. For a direct-to-video movie, the ensemble was quite well-rounded, but audiences found it difficult to move on after only two years from a cast that had been there for a long time.
5. American Pie Presents: Beta House (2007) 5.3/10
Beta House was the only spin-off movie that was also a direct sequel to the one that came before it; viewers responded strongly to Dwight and Erik Stifler and so they were both called back for this one for this one to. The company made a wise decision by bringing them back for a second chance because the majority of fans preferred this one.
For many viewers of the show, it’s a mystery why the show shifted away from the Stifler couple when it was evident that things were only going to get better for the characters.
6. American Wedding (2003) 6.3/10
Steve Stifler’s character grew significantly in the third film, which was originally intended to be the final chapter in the series’ s saga. In spite of this, the Oz-sized hole in the group that fans had come to love was causing the group to function less effectively.
When Oz was gone and Kevin was practically nonexistent in the third picture, it felt like a purposeful decision to give greater screen time and character development to various characters. It’s understandable that it has the lowest rating, given that it’s widely perceived by fans and critics alike as the poorest entry in the main series. Despite the fact that this video is about Jim’s wedding, it is always meant to be a team effort.
7. American Pie 2 (2001) 6.4/10
Due to the rapid-fire style of the bawdy jokes, this episode is sometimes considered to by fans as the most hilarious in the entire franchise. At a period when nothing was off limits, many of the gags in this film would not be acceptable in today’s society. A lot of the concerns that many teenagers face when they head off to college were addressed in the second film.
More high school graduates should follow Kevin’s older brother’s suggestion and buy a beach property to keep in touch with his buddies. The film’s central theme of keeping connected, no matter how things change, is a wonderful one, and that’s why so many people still feel a strong connection to it today. It’s easy to get the impression that this could be any group of friends hanging out at anyone’s place, just clinging to their youth.
8. American Reunion (2012) 6.7/10
Remarkably, the famed return to form was brought on by Jon Hurwitz and HaydenSchlossberg, writers who once promoted their picture as “the Asian man from American Pie and the Indian guy from Van Wilder.”
The fact that everyone returned was enough to bring in an international box office total of $234,736,898 from fans and critics alike, making this the most successful sequel in the franchise’s history. In addition to their trademark poignant group moments, the ensemble seemed to have no problem delivering quick-witted remarks as if no time had gone. In addition, the authors made a point of introducing some new elements to the series and poking fun at the actors’ ages in a lighthearted manner.
9. American Pie (1999) 7/10
One of the most popular and lucrative comedies of all time, and a genre that fans were eager to return to.
A filthy comedy like this hasn’t been seen in Hollywood like Animal House, which is why it’s a classic that stands the test of time. For centuries to come, die-hard fans and friends of the show will talk about it.
