Jim: You realize we're all going to go to college as virgins. They probably have special dorms for people like us.
A little trivia for the American-Pie-Movies fans: The movie is obviously based in Michigan, as apparent by the dialogue of the characters and the frequent mention and appearance of such schools as the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. What most people don't realize, is that the characters live in a town called "Great Falls", which is based on the writer's hometown, Grand Rapids. Those of us fans who live in Grand Rapids, Michigan have so much fun with these movies because they contain one hidden reference to our town after another. For instance, the kids go to East Great Falls High School. One of the biggest and most preppy schools in the area is East Grand Rapids High. Also, the hotdog shop that the guys frequent, "Yesteryears", is a real place: only we call it "Yesterdog" and it's been a very popular hangout for almost 50 years. In the sequel, the guys go to Grand Harbor, a resort town by the lake. This is a place based on a town on Lake Michigan called Grand Haven. Many of us who live in Grand Rapids actually do this very thing during the summers. There are again, many references to Grand Haven (and Grand Rapids again) in the sequel, but the movie does short the audience on one thing: one of Grand Haven's highlights is a fantastic pier and lighthouse. The lighthouse that Jim and Nadia go to is pathetic in comparison. If you ever have the pleasure of visiting West Michigan, and are so inclined, be sure to watch the movies with a native and then visit the real locations. See more...

Continuity: When Finch is moping through the house, depressed, he goes through a door marked "keep out". The door handle is on the left side, meaning that from inside the room the handle must be on the right. However, when he plays with the pool balls, we can see that the door he must just have come through (there's no other door visible) has the handle on the left.
Continuity: In the famous Nadia on the internet segment, there is a quick shot of the computer before Jim starts to get undressed. If you look on the desk next to the keyboard there is a gray t-shirt. It wasn't there when Jim was setting up the camera and Jim hasn't begun to undress yet. Obviously shot after Jim threw the shirt on the Web cam and it slid off.
Continuity: Finch runs into the girl's bathroom when the laxatives affect him. He tries to take out a toilet seat cover, but there are none left. The side shot shows a corner of the box hanging down below the dispenser, whereas when the shot changes to the front, there is no visible corner. It then returns to the side and the visible corner, and back to the front with no corner.
