Retro Review: American Pie

If you can remember the release of a little crude movie called “Porky’s”?

Then you will half grasp where American Pie is going. Porky’s talked about the sexual expectations and exploration of guys in their late teens.

The male teens in Porky’s were always dreaming up ways to peep into the girls locker-room, and how could they score with the head cheerleader. The Porky’s movies even spawned into a franchise trilogy. Another crude movie series followed Porky’s known as “Revenge of the Nerds”.

Well it’s the end of the century and it looks like we have another crudeness winner in “American Pie”. The innocent “Porky’s” charm is there but the writers of this latest entry bring smarter women to the script and a lot more humor. I don’t ever remember rolling in the aisles laughing at “Porky’s”.

Canada’s own SCTV alum Eugene Levy is a riot as he tries to teach overly conservative sex education to his coming of age son.

The film’s title and how it fits into the film is going to be a classic for years to come.

Let me do say that is this film is in the same category as last summer’s bonanza hit “There’s Something About Mary” in its hilarious over the top crude humor. Do yourself a favor, skip “South Park” and see “American Pie” you won’t be sorry.
