    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    In addition to being extremely funny, the film has a warm spirit and respect for the characters. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The presence of "Election's" Chris Klein as the male contingent's most sensitive member only emphasizes how much smarter that high school comedy was. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Exceptionally funny, unexpectedly tender, and lewder than a teenage boy's dreams. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The successful bits, along with an amiable cast of losers and their prom-night prey, make American Pie a winner. show more

    Kevin Maynard Mr. Showbiz

    Pie has some nice surprises and is enjoyable in a smutty, sitcom way. It offers up the outrageousness of "There's Something About Mary" without wallowing in cruelty. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    Vulgar and lewd and raunchy like you wouldn't believe, and absolutely hilarious from beginning to end. show more

  • 75
    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It is not inspired, but it's cheerful and hard-working and sometimes funny, and--here's the important thing--it's not mean. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Guaranteed to beguile anyone who can remember the joy -- and agony -- of anticipating the first time. show more

  • 63
    Chicago Tribune

    Both funny and foul, alternately frank and full of it. show more

    Wesley Morris San Francisco Examiner

    A limp excuse for a coming-of-age flick, more interested in sexploits than sex, more adept at gross-out than girls. show more
