Why is it important to Watch American Pie Movies in Order?
As most fans of American Pie movies know, each movie follows the events that happen to certain characters throughout their years in high school. If you don’t watch them in order (1 through 4), you might get confused about what’s occurring at any given moment.
By watching them in order, it makes it easier for viewers not to miss anything that happened before or after an event occurs.
It’s also not a bad idea to watch some of the American Pie movies more than once, as they are funny and entertaining enough for multiple viewings.
In addition, if you’re a fan of any of the actors or actresses from these films, watching the movies in order is a good way to see their progress over time.
What is the movie American Pie all about?
The American Pie movies are teen Adult comedy films written by Adam Herz and directed by brothers Paul and Chris Weitz. The original movie was released in 1999, the second movie was released in 2001, the third movie in 2003, the fourth in 2004, and the fifth in 2012.
American Pie is a teen Adult comedy film focusing on five teenage friends Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs), Kevin Myers (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Oz Rosenberg (Chris Klein), Steve Stifler(Seann William Scott), and Matt Stifler (Eddie Kaye Thomas).
They make a pact to lose their virginity before they graduate high school. However, things get out of hand when Jim falls in love with his friend Michelle Flaherty (Mena Suvari), Oz’s girlfriend Heather (Mena Suvari) gets suspicious of his friendship with Stifler, Kevin discovers his love for the band camp girl – Cadence ( Tara Reid ), Stifler sabotages his little brother Matt’s ( Chris Owen ) chances of having fun with an upperclassman during the school dance and ends up taking him home after he vomits on himself.
Why are American Pie Movies so Popular?
The American Pie Movies are a set of comedy films that began in 1999 and ended in 2012. They fall under the genre of teen comedy, though there is nothing particularly offensive about them; they’re generally family-friendly movies.
There’s no nudity, little bad language (even for that time period), and adult content is usually played for laughs rather than presented seriously or graphically. The main thing that makes these movies stand out to audiences is what made them stand out at first: originality.
Most teen comedies either focus around promiscuous teens who were never taught any better ( Porky’s ) or desperate high school students seeking to lose their virginity before graduation ( Superbad ).
What separates American Pie from the pack was its fresh and natural taste. Most teen comedies have a raunchy, over-the-top style that doesn’t feel true to life. American Pie was different in a major way: it felt real!
The dialogue had the same awkwardness you hear from many teenagers when they’re around each other for the first time, thinking about their bodies, or just dealing with plain old puberty. It was relatable because it had this vibe of being written by teenagers rather than adults trying to speak like teens.
