Jeremy of We Got This Covered wrote, "It’s been a long time since I first visited American Pie. What was once the R-rated comedy of the late 90′s is now just another title that for some reason really appealed to audiences in its day. I remember initially liking the film when it first came out, but I never had the urge to revisit. In fact, I’ve only ever seen the film once before. Returning to it now, in preparation for American Reunion leaves me with lots of questions. Why did this film get a sequel in the first place and why is Universal returning to the “series” for another outing? American Pie is just another byproduct of the 90′s that’s not all that funny and not all that original or fresh. It just sort of exists."
