    Product Description

    You'll never look at warm apple pie the same way again! American Pie takes a hysterical look at the goal of four "unlucky in love" high school friends who make the ultimate pact: lose their virginity by prom night. As they try to manipulate their way into the...hearts of some of their classmates, their plans often backfire with hilarity. One fails to score with the sexy foreign exchange student and then makes a last ditch effort with a band member who has an interesting way with her flute, while another is so desperate he actually hires someone to give him a "reputation." Follow the raging hormones of four teenage boys and their girls as they gear up for the most important night of their lives...the prom? Sit back and enjoy a piece of America's #1 comedy hit!

    Amazon.com

    Anyone who's watched just about any teenage film knows that the greatest evil in this world isn't chemical warfare, ethnic cleansing, or even the nuclear bomb. The worst crime known to man? Why, virginity, of course. As we've learned from countless films--from Summer of '42 to Risky Business--virginity is a criminal burden that one must shed oneself of as quickly as possible. And while many of these films have given the topic a bad name, American Pie quietly sweeps in and gives sex some of its dignity back. Dignity, you may say? How can a film that highlights intercourse with fruit pies, premature ejaculation broadcasted across the Internet, and the gratuitous "gross-out" shots restore the dignity of a genre that's been encumbered with such heavyweights as Porky's and Losin' It? The plot may be typical, with four high school friends swearing to "score" by prom, yet the film rises above the muck with its superior cast, successful and sweet humor, and some actually rather retro values about the meaning and importance of sex. Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, and Eddie Kaye Thomas make up the odd quartet of pals determined to woo, lie, and beg their way to manhood. The young women they pursue are wary girlfriend Vicky (Tara Reid), choir girl Heather (Mena Suvari), band geek Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), and just about any other female who is willing and able. Natasha Lyonne as Jessica, playing a similar role as in Slums of Beverly Hills, is the general adviser to the crowd (when Vicky tells her "I want it to be the right time, the right place," Jessica responds, "It's not a space shuttle launch, it's sex"). The comedic timing hits the mark--especially in the deliberately awkward scenes between Jim (Biggs) and his father (Eugene Levy). And, of course, lessons are learned in this genuinely funny film, which will probably please the adult crowd even more than it will the teenage one. --Jenny Brown

    5.0 out of 5 stars unrated version not much different from the original December 29, 1999
    Format:DVD
    First off I would like to say that this was the funniest movie of the year! I watched it in theaters 5 times and I laughed as hard the 5th time as I did the the 1st time. As for the unrated version there is about less than a minute more that was added here than the orginal version. If you had a choice of chooseing the rated or unrated, you cant go wrong with either of them. As for the rest of the DVD, its awesome. It has access of the greatest quotes and songs that were played in the movie. Plus, they have the video for "You Wanted More" by Tonic which I was extremely happy to see because it didn't get enough airtime on the music channels. Overall, I would say this is DVD is a good example of one of those DVDs that show what you can put on a DVD. Plus, having the trailer for Man On The Moon was a major plus!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not Much of a Difference in My Opinion January 14, 2000
    By A Customer
    Format:DVD
    What was the point of releasing an unrated version of this movie? The only scene that was added was Jim on the counter with the pie (and this was included in the outtakes of the rated version). Plus, the scene in the beginning involving Jim's dillema of what kind of Jim, Nadia would go for, wasn't included. To me, there wasn't much of a difference between versions. The movie itself is one of my all-time favorites and I recommend it to anyone who hasn't already seen it. It's just that there was too much hype surrounding this "unrated" version. My advice, go with the rated version instead.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a Film That Portrays Realistic Sitiuations March 1, 2000
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    For years we have endured movies that follow a recipe of non offense. American Pie decided to serve dessert instead of appetizers. Offering glimpses of more realistic high school hijinx. This story makes it easy to put yourself into those embarrassing situations you may have been through or had a friend go through. American Pie is without a doubt a hilarious roast. As far as the difference between unrated and rated, unrated just gives us a more front row view to a couple scenes. If you don't own it buy the unrated version. If you already own the rated version, buying the unrated version is not necessary. American Pie, either version, is a must own DVD for any collection.

    3.0 out of 5 stars ultimate.... July 16, 2001
    Format:DVD
    Ok, so when are the people at Universal going to release their final versions of DVD releases first? I don't see why they make us buy one version one year then a better version the next. I love this film and enjoyed the extras on the first printing, but please...Universal, stop with the dual prints! If you print one collector's, make it a collector's edition. Not a preview to a better version of the same disc.

    If you bought the original DVD version that came out then you pretty much already have this "ultimate" edition. The deleted scenes, which there are only a handful, are the only real additions to the original disc. Save the twenty-two dollars and use it to go see "American Pie 2" if you already have the original. Don't let Universal milk you for twenty-two more dollars. If you don't have "American Pie" on DVD, then definitely buy this because the extras are great, just not that different from the first DVD of the movie.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, but a misleading release January 31, 2000
    Format:DVD
    While I found this movie hilarious when I saw it, first in theaters, and then on this "unrated special edition", I thought that the release was lacking. The producers try to push this unrated version on the consumer by advertising a plethora of bonus materials. Scenes originally deleted from the theatrical release, and a Widescreen presentation among other things. As far as I could tell however, the only thing changed from the original release is one scene, and that being a fairly minor change. The rest of the movie was exactly how I remembered it. For this, I find it rather audacious of Universal to release two different versions of the DVD, one theatrical and one unrated one, when they could have just as easily included that single cut out scene as a bonus feature in one dvd. Furthermore, the box says that the movie is presented in a widescreen 1.85:1 ratio. Not true. The movie is in a fullscreen format, which is incredibly annoying to most true movie fans. Despite these misinformities, American Pie is still a great movie and deserves to be seen. And for any die hard fan that is considering buying both the rated and unrated versions, don't. One is good, but anything else would be a waste of your time and money.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Unrated! January 19, 2000
    By A Customer
    Format:DVD
    Don't believe the hype. The unrated version you couldn't see in theaters? Please! About 1 minute of 1 pair of breasts is the only nudity in this film. Funny at times, but if you think you're going to see something that wasn't in the theater you'll be really disappointed.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, but don't waste bucks for this version. January 7, 2000
    Format:DVD
    I thought the movie was great in the threatre and it's super at home. The only annoying, thing and I wish I knew this before I wasted the extra ten bucks. Is that the unrated version, is almost exactly like the standard version. You would have to watch the two side by side to see the differences.
