‘American Pie’ could not be made today according to one of its protagonists, Seann William Scott


Back in 1999, ‘American Pie’ hit theaters, a teen comedy full of obscenities and crazy sexual situations that went on to collect 235 million dollars at the box office and whose success spawned several sequels and spin-offs.

However, one of its protagonists, Seann William Scott, believes that today the film would not reap the popularity it achieved at the time. What’s more, it wouldn’t even have a place in our society, which has evolved over time and could now see the film with very different eyes.

This is how he tells it in an interview with Jake’s Takes: “You know, I was having a conversation with a friend the other day, I said: ‘I couldn’t do ‘American Pie’ these days.’ If you did some of the things of that movie, you would get arrested and probably go to jail for a long time. I highly doubt there will ever be an interest in those kinds of movies again. Although I could be wrong. I think some of the comedies in general can be funny, but it seems like People, including me, appreciate clever, witty humor and good writing more than something so over the top.”

Sex Comedy Hit

‘American Pie’ tells the story of Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs) and his friends, Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Oz (Chris Klein) and Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), who make a pact to lose their virginity before they graduate. In order to win the bet, Finch invents a rumor thinking that this way he will conquer the girls, while Oz decides to join the choir to flirt with Heather (Mena Suvari). For his part, William Scott plays Steve Stifler, the popular class, whose mother is played by Jennifer Coolidge, who popularized the term MILF (in Spanish MQMF).

The film was a true phenomenon throughout the world, giving rise to a franchise with nine installments in total. In 2012, the original cast returned in “American Pie: Reunion,” which took place 13 years after Jim and his classmates graduated from high school.
