American Pie is a comedic coming-of-age film released in 1999 directed by Paul Weitz and starring Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, and Thomas Ian Nicholas. The movie is set in a high school in Michigan and follows the lives of four teenagers: Jim Levenstein, Chris "Oz" Ostreicher, Kevin Myers, and Paul Finch. Jim is a socially awkward and sexually inexperienced student who is constantly being teased by his friends about his virginity. He decides to lose his virginity before he graduates from high school and sets his sights on a foreign exchange student named Nadia, played by Shannon Elizabeth. Jim's attempts to seduce Nadia lead to numerous embarrassing and hilarious situations.

Meanwhile, Chris is a popular jock who is trying to broaden his horizons by taking up singing in the glee club. He meets a girl named Heather, played by Mena Suvari, whom he begins to develop feelings for. However, he struggles with the idea of being in a relationship with her due to his reputation as a ladies' man.

Kevin is in a long-term relationship with his girlfriend Vicky, played by Tara Reid, but begins to feel insecure about their future together. He seeks advice from his older brother, who encourages him to take advantage of his last chance to be with other girls before he settles down.

Lastly, Finch is a mysterious and reserved student who is also angling to lose his virginity before graduation. He creates an elaborate lie about having sex with Stifler's mom, a joke which becomes a running theme throughout the movie.

Despite their differences, the four friends bond over their shared obsession with losing their virginity and navigate the challenges of high school life. The movie is filled with raunchy humor and crude jokes, but at its core, it is a story about friendship and growing up.

Overall, American Pie is a classic teen movie that has become a cultural touchstone for many millennials. It launched the careers of its young stars and spawned multiple sequels and spin-offs. While it may not be for everyone, it certainly has its place in the pantheon of great American comedies.

American Pie is a 1999 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.0 and a MetaScore of 58.
