How to Watch the ‘American Pie’ Movies in Order
High school comedies have been a rage since the 80s. But nothing could (and perhaps ever will) top the popularity of American Pie.
A movie series that turned into a huge franchise, American Pie is essentially a teen sex comedy that instantly became a huge hit with the audience.
Starting in 1999, the movie series led to four sequels and five spin-offs over a period of 23 years.
The original American Pie series has four movies, and the later spin-off series has five movies,
making it a total of nine comedies that earned the entire franchise a profit of over a billion dollars. Besides its box office success,
the movies themselves have become iconic in the teenage comedy space, with their dialogues and characters being popular memes.
Based on the characters created by Adam Herz, all the stories of the franchise are set in East Great Falls High school, which
remains the only common element across the nine films.
The four movies in the American Pie series are somewhat connected to each other, each sequel taking off from where the previous one left.
But, the five spin-off movies in the American Pie Presents series are all independent stories and have no relation whatsoever to the original four movies.
