| Classic!!!
I have to say that the most fun I had at the movies this summer was when I saw American Pie, the funniest picture I've seen since last summer's There's Something About Mary. This movie has taken the classic teenage boy film (Porky's, Revenge of the Nerds) and spruced it up for the 90's. It is hilarious from start to finish. If you like physical comedy, gross out comedy, sexual comedy, American Pie has it all. A great ensemble cast of likeable young actors makes this a joy to watch.

I think this year's breakout star has to be Chris Klein. He was phenomenal in Election and he is even better here as a jock who tries to soften his image to score before prom. I have a feeling Klein is going to be Hollywood's next big thing and I hope he has a chance to flex his acting muscles in some different movies (I can definitely see this guy in an action film).

Also very good is Jason Biggs who plays the sympathetic Jim character, the guy who is least likely to lose his virginity. His antics are very funny to follow and he gets the lion share of the laughs. Finally a huge ovation for Eugene Levy, who gets major laughs as the Jim's dad.

Alternate Versions

Unrated Special Edition DVD & LD contain some extra scenes from the theatrical release to avoid a NC-17 rating:

  • A slightly different version of Jim humping the pie. The theatrical release included Jim's father catching him with the pie while standing near the counter in the kitchen. The unrated version shows Jim's father catching him laying on top of the pie on the bar in the kitchen.
  • Kevin ejaculating into the cup happens onscreen in the unrated version, whereas it happens off-screen in the R-rated version.
  • An extra, more explicit shot of Kevin and the cup of beer. In the unrated version, the cup with semen in it is clear. In the R-rated version, the cup is opaque.
  • More graphic pages from "The Sex Bible".
  • More moaning from Vicki while Kevin puts the Bible to use.
  • Approximately 5 more seconds of Nadia pleasuring herself on Jim's bed.
