In September 1999, the raunchy teen film American Pie was released. 

The comedy, starring Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan and Tara Reid quickly became an international success and was followed by three more films; which combined made $989.5 million at the worldwide box office.

Crazy.
