Home Video Notes:American Pie

Release Date: 21 December 1999

With American Pie’s video release, Universal Studios decided to provide the R-version along with a second “unrated” version that includes the front cover message “UNRATED: The version you couldn’t see in theaters”. I can only assume the cuts made to achieve the R-rating are now replaced, which means this is essentially an NC-17 movie, aimed directly at teenagers.

For Canadian families, the problem is even worse. The CMPDA (Canadian Motion Picture Distributors Association) has branded both versions as 14A, meaning in their opinion, this film is suitable for teens over 14 while those under 14 should watch with an adult.
