five years ago, American Pie came into theatres
and made everyone laugh
at the screen and in a way themselves.
Everyone knows a tangible version of
Jim, Stifler, Finch and company although
hopefully it’s a lesser version.
These movies where a return to the
80’s teen movies like Fast Times
At Ridgemont High where the kids and
their social troubles in and out of
school were shown in a humorous way.
Well after 2 Pies, the “final” installment
of the American Pie series, American
Wedding hit the movies mid-2003 and was
a success. But most know that the best
part of the Pie series has been what
you didn’t get to see in the movies
and with the seemingly simultaneous advent
of the DVD it seems people could even
make mistakes on purpose, knowing they
will have a place on the video somewhere.
The fun continues with Wedding a funny
movie with some much extra pie especially
with the unrated version of this third
The premise: Jim (Jason Biggs) is set
to marry first love and band camp sweetheart
Michelle (Allison Hannigan) but of
course trouble comes in form of getting
Michelle a dress, teaching Jim how
to dance, dealing with her parents
and Stifle (Seann William Scott) and
movie shows how they resolve their
problems leading to their big day.
The movie starts off hilariously with
Jim getting some table service and
doesn’t stop as Stiffler and
Finch fight for Michelle’s sister,
Jim fights to keep his parents in law
happy and they all try to stay in one
Oh, did I mention the hot dominatrix
bachelor party scene?
From my observations, Stiffler is more
prevalent in this film getting plenty
of time to look like the complete jerk
that he is. I guarantee he is sure
not to disappoint anyone who thinks
he couldn’t top eating semen
or kissing another man . He does big
Jim continues to dig himself into a hole
and crawl back out and of course he does
some stuff he has no business doing.
Eugene Levy returns as Jim’s pop
always there and willing to help in a
compromising situation. His comedy has
always been a staple of the movie and
it continues in this film.
The movie was funny, really outrageous
and fitting of the last pie installment.
While Shannon Elisabeth, Tara Reid,
Chris Klein, and Mena Suvari didn’t
return to their roles their parts weren’t
missed at all besides them not mentioning
what they were doing while the wedding
was planned. There were some return
appearances like the M.I.L.F. guys
and Stifler’s mom sure to please.
The DVD features Deleted Scenes, Outtakes,
Stifler’s Speak, A day with Nikki
Ziering (the former Price Is Right
model, and co-star of the bachelor
party scene), feature commentary a
Cheesy Wedding Video, a special look
into the Bachelor Party scene and Grooming
the Groom, a story of the crew’s
attempt to create Jim’s mishap
down his pants for the camera (like
This movie is a great laugh, the features
are many and are detailed and while
not the first wasn’t a disappointment
which is saying something with sequels.
There is plenty of skin and sin. Not
one for the kids this is for the college
age people and up.
I’ll give it 3 globes.
