10 Movies Similar to the American Pie Films

What is American Pie?

If you are not too sure what the American Pie films are about, then I will explain them to you. Most of them involve a group of friends getting drunk and getting into hilarious and embarrising situations. Although sometimes they aren't drunk. Furthermore, they have a friend called Stifler who is crazy. Most of the situations they get into, are down to him.

Overall, they are exceptionally funny and if you like to see embarrising moments happening to four college guys then this is the film for you. Or all of the films in the series are for you!


This film features three teenagers trying to throw a party. What does any good party need? Booze. This is where the problems start, after trying to get alcohol one of the teenagers is attacked in the shop so the cops show up. Needless to say, the other two don't know that their friend had been attacked. So they run.

At this point, you follow the two teenagers around as they try to get alcohol for the party without any money. Also you follow around the third teenager who is being "looked after" by the immature pair of cops. This film is so funny, as you follow them around getting into all sorts of trouble.

Haven't seen a lot of this, but I'm a huge fan of Eurotrip. I never thought I would enjoy that film so much. 40-Year Old Virgin and Old School are pretty good too. The Girl Next Door? Meh, not so much.

Haven't seen the others.
