Still the best
The first 'American Pie' is still the best from the trilogy. May be because it is the original teenage sex comedy, but for sure because most of the jokes are still funny during a second viewing. Yes, every joke has to do with sex but it is handled in a certain honest way. The movie feels almost sweet in the end.

Basically the movie is about four friends who want to lose their virginity before their high school prom. The four are Jim (Jason Biggs), Oz (Chris Klein), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) and Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas). Kevin has a girlfriend named Vicky (Tara Reid), Oz joins a chorus to impress Heather (Mena Suvari), Finch makes sure certain stories are told about him, and Jim, who has one embarrassing moment after another, has the hots for Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth). Other funny characters are Jim's date to the prom Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), Jim's dad (Eugene Levy), Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott) and Stifler's mom (Jennifer Coolidge).

Especially Stifler and Jim's dad will make you laugh a lot. The embarrassing moments with Jim make you laugh as well although sometimes they are really painful to watch. His scenes in particular could offend some people, but if you think you can stand a little sex you will probably laugh. It is very clearly that the movie wants the best for the main characters and although they face some humiliating things at first, there is a good chance things will turn out the way they want it after all.
