American Pie Movies Ranked

Back in the late 1990s, and early 2000s, American Pie movies took the teen sex comedy genre to completely new levels, and paved the way for future flicks.

The first movie in the franchise pushed the shock boundaries, with audiences flocking to cinemas to watch the gang engage in debauchery, and laugh along at all of the jokes.

The studios wanted to keep the magic going for as long as possible, and now, including the spin-off films, there are nine America Pie movies, in total.

The American Pie movies began in 1999 and the franchise is still releasing new movies as recently as 2020. So, to celebrate over 20 years of American Pie thrills and spills, here, we rank every movie in the franchise, from worst to best...

9 American Pie Presents: Girls' Rules (2020)

Four pals are on the verge of graduating from high school, and they decide to charge of their lives and get what they want in their senior year. We see Annie, Kayla, Michelle, and Stephanie on a mission to lose their virginity, blackmailing the principal, and causing general havoc.

This is the most recent movie in the franchise, and universally, it's the least loved, which you would expect. The charm of the earlier movies had worn off some time before this offering.

8 American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (2009)

The Book of Love is the eighth offering, and fourth spin-off, of the American Pie series. This movie is one of the lowest-rated in the entire franchise, by fans and critics.

The film follows a group of teens exactly ten years after the original film took place, finding the infamous "Bible" that character Kevin Myers used in the original. The ruined copy, with incomplete advice, leads them on a hilarious journey to lose their virginity.

7 American Pie Presents: Beta House (2007)

Beta House was the only spin-off film to be a direct sequel to the one that came before it as well, audiences responded well to Dwight and Erik Stifler and so they were both brought back for this one. A lot of fans and critics actually rate this spin-off film as one of the better ones in the franchise.

Despite its popularity, and carry-on characters, we still have it a smidgen below its predecessor.

6 American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile (2006)

The Naked Mile is the second spin-off movie n the franchise, and, for us, one of the funnier films of the series. Erik Stifler is the cousin of Steve and Matt Stifler, and his girlfriend just gave him a free weekend pass to do whatever he wants, so, in true Stifler fashion, he heads off to a college campus to run in The Naked Mile.

Most fans probably prefer Beta House to this one, but one thing is for sure, both movies were nowhere near as disliked as The Book Of Love, which, for some strange reason, didn't star a Stifler character.

5 American Pie Presents: Band Camp (2005)

Band Camp was the first movie following the initial trilogy, and it was a bigger hit than every movie after it, with both Eugene Levy and Chris Owen returning as Noah Levenstein and Sherman, respectively.

In this offering, we follow Steven Stifler's brother, Matt, who is ordered to attend band camp following a prank. We get a full insight into the raunchy band camp, made famous by Michelle in the original trilogy. For us, this is the strongest movie of the spin-off movies, and one that feels closest to the originals.

4 American Pie: The Wedding (2003)

The third film in the franchise, which was meant to be the last film, had flashes of brilliance throughout, but, all in all, it did seem to miss that spark that made the first two movies so iconic. The development of Steven Stifler's character was good, yet there was a big Oz sized hole in the gang who fans had come to know and love, and groups that are that tight-knit just don't function as well when they are not whole.

With no Oz, and very little of Kevin, this film was seen by many fans and critics as the weakest in the main franchise.

3 American Reunion (2012)

The 2012 offering, containing the original characters, was widely regarded by many fans and critics as the closest to the first movie in tone, as well as humour. This was a hugely anticipated movie, taking $235m at the box office.

This film definitely has much of the magic that made so many of us fall in love with the franchise and its characters. America Reunion is packed with laughs, drama, and gives us an insight into how the characters have developed, well over a decade since they burst onto our screens. This movie is a nostalgic bit of fun.

2 American Pie 2 (2001)

American Pie is often touted as the most laugh-out-loud funny flick of the entire franchise, due to the rapid-fire nature of the raunchy jokes. This film was made at a time when nothing was off-limits, many of the jokes and scenes in this movie would not be allowed in today's climate.

Based in a summer holiday house, where the original crew get up to their usual antics, the core of the film, staying connected no matter what changes is actually extremely beautiful. The character development is also great, but some of the scenes in this one are outrageously funny.

1 American Pie (1999)

American Pie is a raunchy teen comedy that revolutionised the genre, and set the tone for teen movies to come. This masterpiece is undoubtedly the most relevant, game changing teen movie flick of a generation, and its impact we'll probably never see the likes of again.
