Time Out says

Notorious for the ludicrous masturbation scene which gives the film its title, this Farrelly-like jock comedy begins as it means to go on, with Jim (Biggs) discovered by his parents unscrambling cable porn and sporting a sock on his 'third foot'. Though Jim and his buddies make a pact to lose their virginity before the climax of the graduation ball, the wanking continues apace. The adolescent male is an ugly thing to behold, but ripe for comic humiliation. Weitz's film is enough to put you off having kids. The strange thing is, while it's told very much from the boys' point of view, the humour is almost entirely at their expense, and actually quite sensitive to a woman's needs. If this isn't feminist, exactly, at least it's laddism reconstructed. Nevertheless, it's still a crude piece of work, spottily acted and directed, albeit lifted by two or three outrageous set-pieces.

I always remembered American Pie from when I watched it when I was around 13, and I found it funny, and generally a really good film. But, watching it at 19, I do find a lot of it pathetic and immature. And totally unrealistic. But for young teens, it's hilariously funny.

All of the 3 original American Pie's are fantastic, no one can disagree. My favourite has got to be the Third. But all of them are great. With georgous Seann William Scott. Some moments i feel like falling off the chair laughing. Great
