8 Life Lessons We Learned From Jim’s Dad

Happy birthday Eugene Levy!


Today is Eugene Levy’s birthday so we decided to mark the occasion by celebrating his most famous role – Jim’s Dad in the American Pie film franchise.

While the film itself is one that shaped many an adolescence, he is undoubtedly the stand-out star and when we think about it, he taught us quite a few life lessons that have shaped our adulthood.

Here are 8 of them…


1. Never underestimate the power of a thumb. (And no, we didn’t mean that to sound so rude.)

2. Always keep it real.

3. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

4. Knock louder.

5. Sometimes it’s best to say nothing at all.

6. Powerful eyebrows are something to be proud of.

7. You CAN be old and cool.

8. It’s okay to lie to protect the ones we love.
