A knowing throwback to the golden age of the teen sex comedy (if there ever was such an era), American Pie managed to be cheerfully crude and immensely likable in equal measure, aided considerably by a classic supporting turn from Canada's own Eugene Levy.

Special Guest Announced: everyone's favourite dad, Eugene Levy, will be in attendance at this screening.

"You realize we're all going to go to college as virgins. They probably have special dorms for people like us." — Jim (Jason Biggs)

On the verge of college and having yet to join the club of the sexually active, four high-school friends make a pact to lose their virginity before graduation. While Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) tries to convince his long-time girlfriend (a pre-train wreck Tara Reid) to finally go all the way, lacrosse star Oz (Chris Klein) attempts to change his jock image by joining the school jazz choir and cultured Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) somehow cultivates an image as a badass, it seems like inexperienced and socially awkward Jim (Jason Biggs) may have the best chance to score when he agrees to tutor a nubile foreign exchange student (Shannon Elizabeth — generic Eastern European accent alert!) — until his enthusiasm gets the better of him. A knowing throwback to the golden age of the teen sex comedy (if there ever was such an era), American Pie managed to be cheerfully crude and immensely likable in equal measure, aided considerably by a classic supporting turn from Canada's own Eugene Levy as Jim's well-meaning but ultimately embarrassing dad.
