American Pie marked an entire generation when it was released in 1999. Our heroes wanted to lose their virginity at all costs, and for this simple quest have garnered millions of dollars in box office receipts. Above all, they gave ideas to a lot of other films… Late romantic comedies and hello badass and very trashy teen movies with men in the lead!
In the genre of the teen movie, there is not only American Pie. Admittedly, it is a real reference since it gave rise to several suites (American Pie 2 in 2001, American Pie 3: Let’s Marry Them! in 2003 and American Pie 4 in 2012) and a package of spin-offs (American Pie: No Limit! in 2005, American Pie: String Academy in 2006, American Pie: Campus Madness in 2007 and American Pie: The Sex Commandments in 2009). And then we all remember Jim, mortified after being surprised by his parents in front of an X movie, before making the pact with his band of friends from become men before they enter college. Without forgetting the famous apple pie… In short, an excellent cult film. But there are others that should not be forgotten. It’s on for our overview of the best teen movies completely humorous crazy !

To keep in touch, Josh records video messages which he sends to his sweetheart. But when the tape of his antics with the beautiful Beth (Amy Smart) leaves by mistake, Josh knows he’s on the verge of disaster. Accompanied by EL, Kyle and Rubin, he will try toarrive before the compromising packet…
It was in 2000 that the comedy came out road trip signed Todd Phillips. This is certainly the film that comes closest to American Pie in terms of pure delirium and unshakable friendship. road trip has also become cult as its pace was frantic and the sequences perfectly tied. Between mindless characters twists and turns, you won’t get bored for a single moment. To see or see again absolutely.
2) Sex Trip
For years, Scott Thomas (Scott Mechlowicz) and his Berlin pen pal Mieke (Jessica Boehrs) have been sending each other e-mails, exchanging even the smallest details of their lives. One day, when he receives a new message from Mieke, Scott takes fright, believing that the boy pursues him with his enthusiasm.

Their tour of Europe, which will take them to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome and Bratislavawill make them discover all the luxurious sweetness of the old continent.
Jeff Schaffer, Alec Berg and David Mandel offered us in 2004 their own vision of teen movie way road trip with sex trip (Eurotrip in original version). The comedy has been widely criticized for the many European clichés on which she could rely. Preconceived ideas that were not to the taste of the greatest number but which made us laugh all the same. Sex Drive will always offer you the luxury of fully decompress in front of friends, loves and shit unfolding before your eyes. On the road again so !
3) 40 years old, still a virgin
Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) is the inventory manager at SmartTech, electronics store. At 40, living alone, he is a fan of figurines, plays the tuba and also plays video games.

We Sell Your Stuff on eBay (literally: “We sell your things on eBay”) in front of his…
In 2005, Judd Apatow unveiled this pearl which has also become cult, as Steve Carell could be endearingly clumsy. Phlegmatic, our man was happy in his condition as a virgin. But as soon as his friends push him to consume, he fears losing what he values most: his figurines and his freedom. More buddy movie than teen moviebut still using the codes and themes of the latter, 40 years old, still a virgin has the intelligence never to make fun of his hero. On the contrary, Apatow puts himself in his place in order to show that love and trust are the key to a successful relationship, sex or not.
Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are childhood friends. Unfortunately, it’s the end of high school for both of them, and next year they will be separated because they will be entering two different universities. Corn before entering university, they intend to have their first sexual experience. There is only one evening left before the big holidays, and they hope to achieve their goal. Unfortunately, these two students do not belong to the dominant groups in high school. They have to rely on a friend of theirs, nicknamed Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who has obtained a fake identity card, and on which he wrote “Mc Lovin, Hawaiian, 25 years old and organ donor”. It is thanks to this fake card that they will be able to buy alcohol and try to achieve their goals.
Greg Mottola offered us his comedy in 2007 SuperGrave (Super bad in original version). Prepare for a avalanche of schoolboy jokes, scathing replies and cheeky gags excessive. We love it or we hate it so much the film can be raw and vulgar but one thing is for sure, you won’t go to hell for laughing at the absurd obscenities. In line with Steve Carell and his virginity at 40, have fun following the adventures of these two teens go all out on their libido.
5) Sex Drive
Ian Lafferty (Josh Zuckerman) is unlucky: his little brother is more popular than him, he is taunted by his eldest and has a humiliating job in a donut shop.

He quickly falls on a superb flamboyant blonde in a hurry to take action. Only problem: Ian must travel 800 km to meet the dream creature who promises him a night of debauchery. On the bad advice of Lance (Clark Duke), his lifelong friend, and Felicia (Amanda Crew), his best friend, Ian “borrows” the car of Rex (James Marsden), his psychopathic brother and takes them on a crazy trip across the United States…
It was in 2008 that was released Sex Drive by Sean Anders. The synopsis inevitably makes us think of sex trip, minus the love. As much as Scott was in love with Mieke, Ian just wants to lose his virginity as soon as possible. We laugh non-stop without seeing the film scroll. And once again, the humor is raw and it is intended. Embark without fear alongside this young boy who feels bad about himself and there is no need to fasten your seat belts, relaxation is guaranteed and you won’t risk moving from your sofa.
