Sharon Pian Chan,
In spite of yourself, you'll find yourself groaning and laughing through the movie.
New York Times:
Among this year's bumper crop of shallow teen-age movies, it is the shallowest and the most prurient.
Los Angeles Times:
Unusual in its ability to mix bodily functions humor with a sincere and unlooked-for sense of decency
Another giggly gross-out comedy for teenagers, this one somewhat better than most by virtue of a more satisfying ending.
It takes almost 30 intolerably slack minutes to set it up and get it rolling.
American Pie is consistently funny and sporadically hilarious.
Mary Elizabeth Williams,
Some of it does manage to be quite funny; some of it just lies there, all by itself, without even trying to wrap itself around a joke.
A crude piece of work, spottily acted and directed.
Director Paul Weitz never quite pulls off the balancing act of There's Something About Mary, in which the Farrellys managed to be goofy and sweet and gross all at once.
