The movie that was responsible for the sexual awakening of many and also repulsing out self-pleasure came out back in 1999. Since then quite a few sequels were thrown our way, some quite memorable and others easily forgettable.

So where are Jim, Finch, Kevin and Oz now? Below we look into the main American Pie cast members and find out where were they then and where are they now.
