Every 90s kid has watched the “American Pie” franchise, if not, loved it. The movie was so successful at the time it was named an unofficial sex education for the teens of that time. The movie is a sex-comedy, but not just a regular, gross out sex comedy. There were instances of crude humor, but the movie steered clear of over-the-top disgusting humor.
American Pie was directed by Paul Weitz and written by Adam Herz. According to reports, while pitching for the idea for the movie, Adam titled his movie, “Untitled Teenage Sex Comedy That Can Be Made For Under $10 Million Which Studio Readers Will Likely Hate But I Think You Will Love”. It was later changed to “East Grand Rapids High”, then “East Great Falls High”, then “Great Falls”, and finally, “American Pie”.
Rated 7 on IMDb, the movie has balanced characters. Though initially all characters (boys) want to have sex, but in the laterstagese some understood that just “getting laid” isn’t the most important thing. They end up having better connections with girls that, yes, may involve sex. Given that, there’s no shortage of dirty/raunchy jokes and scenes in the movie. Overall, it’s a good teenage sex-comedy, and is still watched by many fans after almost 24 years.
