Every American Pie Movie, Ranked

The American Pie movie franchise essentially consists of a bunch of gross-out comedies. Naturally, we aren't talking about The Godfather films' levels of quality. Still, the movies have their merits and appeal to their target audience.

You may be surprised to learn there are nine movies in the franchise. In addition to the four cinematically-released offerings, five direct-to-DVD installments also exist. In this piece, we'll rank all nine from worst to best. And that's “perfectly natural.”

9. American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile (2006, directed by Joe Nussbaum)

Following Stifler's younger cousin Erik – a high school senior – as he visits his cousin Dwight at the University of Michigan to run a mile naked, having been permitted by his girlfriend.

9. American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile (2006, directed by Joe Nussbaum)

It's got a strong opening as far as American Pie‘s trademark humorous crassness is concerned. Still, the rest of it is pretty dull.

8. American Pie Presents: Band Camp (2005, directed by Steve Rash)

This one follows another member of the Stifler family – Matt, a troubled student and Steve's younger brother – as he's sent to band camp to help him change his boorish ways.

8. American Pie Presents: Band Camp (2005, directed by Steve Rash)

It's high-spirited, and Tad Hilgenbrinck plays a convincing member of the Stifler family. Still, it generally relies on very cheap laughs.

7. American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (2009, directed by John Putch)

This one's set a decade after the first American Pie movie. It follows three new luckless virgin students as they discover “The Bible” hidden in the East Great Falls High library.

7. American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (2009, directed by John Putch)

This movie attempts to bring back the thoughtful and heartfelt tone of the original. Unfortunately, while it succeeds in some respects, it's still wildly inferior.
