Plot synopsis

American Pie tells the story of four high school seniors and their attempts to lose their virginity. Jim (Jason Biggs) has the least amount of experience of the four and has difficulty talking to girls. Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) has a steady girlfriend, Vicki (Tara Reid), but theyíve yet to go all the way. "Oz" (Chris Klein) is the jock who comes on too strongly to girls. And Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) is the mochachino drinking sophisticate who exhibits adult mannerisms, and yet canít use the bathroom in a public toilet. This quartet forms a pact that they will have sex by the night of the prom. Once this pact is made, the foursome try many ways to find and seduce the right woman. Oz decides that he must be sensitive towards women. Kevin decides that he must learn to please Vicki. Finch attempts to create a reputation for himself so that the women will chase him. And Jim... well, poor Jim ends up in many awkward situations (many involving his father (Eugene Levy) catching him in bizarre acts) which leave him desperate to find a date for the prom. In the end, the four friends realize that while sex is great, it may not be the most important thing in life.

Of course, itís not the plot of "American Pie" that made it a success. The plot is simply an excuse for many outrageous situations to occur. The most famous scene in the film is the one in which Jim experiments with the apple pie. There is also Jimís striptease. Some of the funniest scenes are the ones in which Jimís dad attempts to talk to him about sex. For the first half of the film, "American Pie" seems to be determined to outdo itself by piling on one risque scene after another.
