How to Watch the ‘American Pie’ Movies in Order (Chronologically)

The rage for high school movies began in the 80s, but nothing can beat the comedy and absurd jokes that America Pie brought to the big screens. It is a movie series that has now turned into a massive franchise; orginally, it is a teen sex comedy, but it became a massive hit with the audience. The series began in 1999 and led to four sequels and five spin-offs over two decades. 

The original series has four movies, and then spin-offs account for a total of five, forming nine comedy movies that have profited quite a lot. Even though it is a hit at the box office, the movie has so many dialogues as memes which are a teenage favorite.

There are multiple ways you can watch the movie series; you can either watch the four original movies as a set and ignore the spin-offs completely. Or, you can watch all the spin-offs as a standalone movie since all the stories are not inter-connected. The last option is watching the entire franchise. But you can watch all the American Pie movies in order. 

We have put together a mini guide on how you can watch the movies in chronological order.
