15 Warm And Gooey Facts About ‘American Pie’
American Pie is a teen movie CLASSIC.
It dove right into universally racy topics like oral s1x, losing virginity, the depraved s1xuality of band camp and the s1xy foreign exchange student whose accent fluctuates depending on the scene.
Actually, that last one may just be for this movie. Jason Biggs was introduced to us while copulating with a warm pie, Shannon Elizabeth was a hot commodity for a while and How I Met Your Mother’s Alyson Hannigan made her debut. But there were a bunch of things you didn’t know…
1. The movie’s original working title was Untitled Teenage s1x Comedy That Can Be Made For Under $10 Million That Most Readers Will Probably Hate But I Think You Will Love.

2. Turns out that Alyson Hannigan needed to pee the WHOLE TIME she did her audition… and she says it got her the role.
While waiting for her audition Alyson Hannigan felt like she had to pee. Just as she was running to the bathroom, her name was called. Her energy from holding it in came through during her audition.
