My short take on the series:
American pie is a guilty pleasure series about 5 sex-obsessed friends Jim,Kevin,Oz,Finch and Stifler.It might be stupid,even cliched in some bits but who cares when it can provide some harmless perverted fun 😀
American Pie (1999) – The first and the best film in the series.Everyone has equal roles,effortless chemistry.I liked Jim’s character the most followed by Stifler.Oz’s romantic track bored me a bit.It didnt look believable.Kevin had good role and almost shaped up as the “lead” along with Jim.Finch was funny but mostly a side actor throughout the series.
American Pie 2 (2001) – First 30 mins were a bit repetitive but it took over well from there.It is more gross than part 1 and it works bcos this is what the brand is all about.It focussed mostly on the love story of Jim and Michelle . Kevin and Oz got raw deal.But the Climax more than makes up for it and is like a “wet” dream coming true 😀 ,with every guy getting laid with his dream woman.
American Wedding (2003) – Weakest film in the series.Though the film is about marriage of Jim,the lead role is of stifler who tried his best to make it funny.Kevin was wasted and Oz was missing.The vibe of the series was somewhere lost in this film.
American Reunion (2012) – Better than the 3rd part.The screen time of each was fair unlike earlier 2 parts and brought back memories of the first part and is sort of completion of the American Pie “Project”.(Borrowed this tagline from satyam).There is though a racist joke about Indians having small dicks.
Finally, My fav scene in the series which I think epitomised the pervert in every teenager out there 😀
PS : Special thanks to spuntik for recommending me the first part.It went on from there.Tags: American Pie American Reunion American Wedding
