American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules SEX/NUDITY 8

 – Several sex scenes involve sex between teen couples: A teen girl kisses a teen boy for several seconds and she later wears a trench coat and high heels to sneak into a house (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details) and when she tears her coat we see her bare legs and buttocks; she enters a bedroom and opens her coat to show her bra and underwear, covered with mud and she and a teen boy hug, she puts a large dental dam in her mouth and offers oral sex, he agrees, and she kneels down with the boy sitting on the bed shirtless and in undershorts (we see his bare chest and abdomen) until the boy’s parents enter the room and gasp; the girl exits by the window, as the mother says her parents using a tablet have just seen the boy’s penis (we don’t see it). A teen couple has sex in the boy’s bedroom under covers: we see their shoulders and faces as he thrusts and they both moan and sigh. A teen couple has sex in the school chemistry lab: we see them kiss, they move below the frame and we see them kissing and hear moaning. A teen boy and a teen girl in a school library hug, as the girl says, “Pants down,” (we don’t see anything) and they move to the floor below the frame and we later see them stand up and button their shirts (sex is implied). A teen boy and a teen girl have sex standing in a closet: the boy’s back is to the camera and his pants are down to reveal his bare buttocks and thighs, as he thrusts and the girl moans and grimaces and the scene ends. A teen boy and a teen girl have sex in a washroom stall with her sitting on top of him and thrusting as he sits on the toilet; we see their upper bodies (clothed), she thrusts up and down and an overhead shot shows his bare lower thighs and legs. A teen girl sees a sock placed over a dorm door handle and enters to find her boyfriend shirtless, seated on a bed and a college girl wearing a bra and underwear kneeling in front of him; the second girl turns and we see a large dental dam in her mouth (it appears clean and dry), the boy jumps up and places a sheet around his waist (we see his bare chests, abdomen and legs), he chases the first girl outside and she breaks up with him. A quilt on a bed moves up and down several times and a teen couple’s heads appear, sighing, and the girl says, “No one has sex like we do,” and the boy’s young brother snaps a photo of them and the teen boy chases him down a hallway (we see his bare chest and back). A teen girl lies on top of a teen boy on a desk at school as the boy holds a sex aide with the head of JFK on the end, and he mimics the president’s voice; they fall off the desk and we see her straddling him and thrusting up and down as they moan and the scene ends (they are both clothed). A boy and a girl hug and kiss, walk outside to find a tent where they duck inside and find twinkle lights around an air mattress and lie down together; they are clothed and the boy is shown lying on the teen girl and they kiss as he begins to thrust and the scene ends.
 A few scenes involve teenagers masturbating: A teen boy masturbates under a quilt (we see movement) and stops. On laptops in a chat function, a teen girl uses remote control masturbation underwear and we hear buzzing and her moaning, and a teen boy pours lubricant into his hands and masturbates below the frame; he says, “I’m going to pop” three times and the laptop goes dead as the girl shuts her laptop down when her father, a woman, and a teen boy enter the room and the boy steps on the remote causing the underwear to buzz inside the girl’s slacks and she shudders; as the adults leave, the boy picks up the remote and presses the button and the girl shudders and moans. A teen girl lies under covers, takes one of many sex aides out of her bedside table drawer and takes it under the covers; she moans and writhes while listening to a taped speech by John F. Kennedy and then shouts in climax.
 A teen girl wearing a bra, leather short shorts, pantyhose and high heels enters a dark room where we see an older man — the high school principal — wearing a T-shirt and boxer shorts; the teen plays a cellphone track of whipping sounds, points the camera at the man, handcuffs him to a metal grid on the ceiling and says she is going to report him for sexual harassment of herself and other teen girls and she leaves; we later hear that the man was fired. A clothed teen girl sits on a bed as a teen boy stands a few feet away with his back to the camera, facing the girl; the camera zooms in on him from the knees, as his trousers fall to the floor and the girl looks stunned asking, “Is your dad a giant?”
 A man and a woman flirt while watering their lawns at neighboring houses; the woman sprays herself and licks one finger, she sprays herself completely wet and the man sprays his groin area and we later see him lying on top of her, shirtless (we see his bare back and shoulders), while kissing her (the woman is clothed) and a teen girl enters the room, the couple stops, the man says it’s just casual sex, and the girl walks upstairs. A teen girl is startled in the kitchen and screams when a woman walks in and says she and the girl’s father worked up an appetite (sex implied).
 A teen girl names several sex toys and when she shimmies in front of three female classmates, we hear balls clacking; in another scene in a school hallway, the camera shows her feet as we see a large metal ball drop (it appears clean and dry). A teen girl takes another teen girl to a sex toyshop where we see a line of sex aides on display; the girls meet a woman working there who turns out to be their new high school principal. A teen girl takes a pair of remote control underwear home, lays them on her bed and presses the remote button, and we see the underwear buzz and creep across the bed.
 A teen girl at school bends down and shouts into the groin area of another teen girl. Teen boys in a hallway stare at four girls walking in the hall and one boy licks his lips as the girls pass.
 Several teen girls wear revealing clothes in many scenes, including miniskirts and shorts ending at thigh level, deeply cut tops that show cleavage that sometimes jiggles, and sleeveless armholes that briefly show the sides of a breast a few times. One teen girl wears two outfits consisting of a bra and tights at school (cleavage, bare abdomen, back and the outline of her hips, buttocks and legs are seen). A beach scene features several teen boys shirtless and wearing knee-length shorts, while many teen girls wear bras and shorts or bikinis (we see cleavage, a few shots of buttocks in skimpy bikini bottoms, bare abdomens and girls’ bare legs to the top of the thighs). At a school prom, teen boys and girls wear onesies and some girls wear sleeveless opaque nightgowns that end at mid-thigh and show cleavage.
 A teen boy complains to a teen girl that because of a joke the girl played, his mother thinks he has syphilis and the girl says the mom will be glad he does not have it. Four 17-year-old girls agree to all attempt to seduce the new teen boy at school; they all flirt with him with smiles and asking him to have sex, but he declines. A woman takes a cherry pie to a male neighbor, eats two cherries from the pie while sitting across from the man, and in close-up we see her licking her fingers suggestively. A teen girl kisses a teen boy and another teen girl snaps a picture of the couple and then runs out of the room; the first girl slaps the boy in the face. In an office, a woman reaches her cellphone below the desk, points it at herself and snaps a photo (we cannot see what she is photographing). A teen girl dreams that a teen boy lays her on a bed, lies on top of her, kisses her and the dream ends as she hears the word “pop.”

American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules VIOLENCE/GORE 2

 – A teen girl runs into a heavy door and falls on her face (we see blood on her teeth when she gets up). A teen girl wearing a trench coat and high heels climbs a tall fence and falls over, catching her coat on the top of the fence and tearing it (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details); she lands on her face but gets up unharmed, she climbs another fence and onto a house, climbs to the roof, jumps across a gutter, loses a shoe, and climbs down a roof and into a window, half-falling and she later falls three stories out of a window, but she seems unhurt, only covered with mud and dirt. A teen girl runs into a locker and falls (she’s uninjured). A teen girl chokes on a dental dam and a college boy gives her the Heimlich maneuver to pop it out onto the floor. A teen girl punches another girl, who falls against a wall, but no injuries are visible. A teen girl hits a teen boy with a thrown cellphone and the couple argues briefly. A teen girl throws a book hard into a college boy’s groin and he bends over, yelping. Two teen boys argue and one draws back a fist, but does not strike the other boy. A teen boy harasses a teen girl and a young man tells him to back off, but the harasser hits the young man in the face, causing him to fall (no injury is visible). A teen girl punches a teen boy in the face and he falls down. Two teen boys argue for several seconds, and we see bruises on the second boy’s face.

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
