American Pie is a 1999 teen comedy directed by Paul and Chris Weitz, and written by Adam Herz. It was the first film to be directed by the Weitz brothers, and the first film in the American Pie film series. The film was a box-office hit and spawned two direct sequel: American Pie 2 (2001) and American Wedding (2003).
The film concentrates on four boys who make a pact to lose their virginity before their high school graduation. The title of the film refers to a scene in the film in which the lead character is caught masturbating with a pie after previously being told that third base feels like "warm apple pie".
Since the conclusion of the American Pie trilogy, featuring the courtship and marriage of the characters Jim Levenstein and Michelle Flaherty, the American Pie name has gone on to be used as an entity similar to the National Lampoon film series. American Pie has spawned four direct-to-dvd spin-off films bearing the title American Pie Presents: Band Camp (2005), The Naked Mile (2006), Beta House (2007) and The Book of Love (December 2009).
Four friends and west Michigan high school senior, Kevin Myers (Thomas Ian Nicholas), a confident student with a girlfriend named Vicky (Tara Reid), Chris "Oz" Ostreicher (Chris Klein), a member of the high school lacrosse team, Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs) an awkward and sexually naíve character whose father, Noah's (Eugene Levy) attempts to offer sexual advice include purchasing and giving him pornography, and Paul Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), a mochacchino-drinking sophisticate, make a pact, at Kevin's initiation, to lose their virginity before their high school graduation after a dorky classmate, Chuck Sherman (Chris Owen) claims to have done so at a party hosted by fellow classmate and lacrosse player Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott).
