Jeanine Stifler (aka Stifler's Mom) is the mother of Steve Stifler and Matt Stifler. She is the source of the now wildly famous term "MILF" (Mom I'd Like to F*ck) - first coined by John Cho's character, and one of the only supporting cast members to appear in all four films featuring the original cast. She is a common fantasy among the male students at East Great Falls High being described as the goddess and queen of Milf !
In American Pie, Paul Finch has a "Mrs. Robinson" moment with her, as he seduces her, and loses his virginity to her, on a pool table. He subsequently becomes obsessed in the following two films, American Pie 2 to American Wedding, much to her son Steve's dismay. The moment would become grander in scale and a trope in the movies.
The two "come together" for a second rendezvous at the end of American Pie 2. Her car is spotted by her son who doesn't recognize it but questions his friends on the driver. It goes to another area, where we see them rocking Jeanine's Mercedes so violently that its alarm is set off, as Finch screams the quote of "Stifler's Mom!".
Jennifer Coolidge reprises her role in American Wedding, where she again has sex with Finch, in a bathtub, as Finch gives her oral sex.
In "American Reunion", she talks with her son about leaving the house, so he can throw a party. She refuses to leave her home and he hangs up. Jeanine is seen again, she is on the phone with a recent suitor before she meets Noah Levenstein and learns he is Jim's father. She then hangs up on the suitor, after being interested in Noah. They soon laugh about some humiliating moments that they caught one of their sons doing in the past. She soon starts dating the widowed Noah, after sharing drinks and a joint.
In a post-credits scene, she and Noah are on their first date at a movie theater and he romantically wraps his arm around her, causing her to feel flattered. She then performs oral sex on him as gratitude.
She appears to have a wild side along with being promiscuous, as she seduced Paul Finch three times because of his innocence.
She later takes an interest in Noah Levenstein because although he is quite geeky, he is a gentleman, interested in her for who she is, instead of a sexual lust like most men. She's also revealed to not be so promiscuous as she appears to be in the first three films. As she truly wants to be loved and be treated like a lady, she is fed up with the current man in her life and sees something special in Noah. Her interest was well-suited, as she was moved by his attempted romantic gestures.
