Profound and ennobling!
Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly
Among this year's bumper crop of shallow teen-age movies, it is the shallowest and the most prurient.
Stephen Holden — New York Times
Pie is more like the C student who later makes a bundle, then comes back to endow the school.
Mike Clark — USA Today
Michael O'Sullivan — Washington Post
Director Paul Weitz never quite pulls off the balancing act of There's Something About Mary, in which the Farrellys managed to be goofy and sweet and gross all at once.
Dennis Lim — Village Voice
More likely to gross out adults than kids.
Dean Essner — Houston Chronicle
Manages to be both gross and sweet.
Chris Vognar — Dallas Morning News
Cheerful and hard-working and sometimes funny!
Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times
American Pie is both funny and foul, alternately frank and full of it.
Mark Caro — Chicago Tribune
Another giggly gross-out comedy for teenagers, this one somewhat better than most by virtue of a more satisfying ending.
Jonathan Rosenbaum — Chicago Reader
Beyond nauseating and all too familiar!
Susan Stark — Detroit News
The king of gross-out comedy!
Todd McCarthy — Variety
Absolutely hilarious from beginning to end!
Jonathan Foreman — New York Post
A sloppy mess!
Jay Boyar — Orlando Sentinel
The actors are pure Hollywood, with every grin, spoken line, or sad face springing from acting classes and the closely studied performances of other actors.
Ernest Hardy — Film.com
American Pie is a pretty despicable slice of high-school life.
Sean Means — Film.com
Any kind of conversation, such as the boys' gatherings at a diner, is beyond the powers of filmmaking brothers Paul and Chris Weitz.
Robert Horton — Film.com
Adam Herz's script is wildly uneven but occasionally quite funny.
Liam Lacey — Globe and Mail
Some of it does manage to be quite funny; some of it just lies there, all by itself, without even trying to wrap itself around a joke.
Mary Elizabeth Williams — Salon.com
American Pie is consistently funny and sporadically hilarious.
James Berardinelli — ReelViews
