Tara Reid in American Pie

One of the roles Tara Reid is most popular for is her work in the American Pie (one and two) movies where she plays the somewhat hard to get Victoria “Vicky” Lathum. She plays the role of one of the male leads girlfriend who won’t sleep with him because she says “I want it to be the right time, the right place…”

Throughout the movie, her boyfriend Kevin Meyers (played by Thomas Ian Nichols) tries to get her to have sex with him. He tries hard and means well, but Vicky isn’t up for it. One idea is that because she has never had an orgasm by him, this is the reason why she won’t go all the way. After consulting “The Bible”, a book that is filled with the sexual advancements of many high school students before him, Kevin is able to give her and orgasm but she still refuses.

Tara Reid is able to pull this role off perfectly and keeps sex off the table until the closing scenes where it is just awkwardly romantic. This role, while not one of her biggest, is one that will live on in the memories of all American Pie fans as she created a whole dynamic between the friends and the girls that wouldn’t have been possible without her.

In the second movie, Tara only has a small role where she sees Kevin (now her ex) at the beach house that the guys live in for the summer. The few moments she’s seen on screen are awkward and tense because of the unsaid feelings Kevin has for her. During the final party and especially while most everyone is still sleeping off the night before, Kevin and Vicky reconnect as friends.
