American Pie is 100% a must-watch movie. It holds the reputation for the most unique high school comedy and has stood the test of time. Judy Berman of TIME wrote this about the teen comedy,

“Everything in the world changes, but at least one thing about the teenage life stays the same. The fact that the American high scholars are a hormone-addled mess.”
