Overview

Jesse Dylan's American Wedding rounds up the characters from the American Pie films for a trip to the altar. Jim (Jason Biggs) proposes to Michelle (Alyson Hannigan). Hoping to make the wedding day as special as possible for his bride, Jim enlists the help of his friends Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), and the always obnoxious Stifler (Seann William Scott) to help him convince a dressmaker to create the perfect gown, make a good impression on his future in-laws, and assist him in getting out of the embarrassing situations in which he so often seems to find himself. Stifler and Finch battle for the attention of Michelle's younger sister Cadence (January Jones), Jim's Grandmother objects to the wedding because Michelle is not Jewish, and Stiffler's poorly timed surprise bachelor party are just some of the obstacles that must be overcome before the happy event can transpire.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The American Pie trilogy comes to an eminently satisfying conclusion with the marriage of hapless hero Jim Levinstein (Jason Biggs) to erstwhile band geek Michelle Flaherty (Alyson Hannigan) in this frequently hilarious chapter. Jim and Michelle are planning the perfect wedding, but there is no way it will ever come off as long as the groom's buddies are involved -- especially the irrepressible Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott). Things get off to a rocky start when Jim fails to impress Michelle's morally rigid parents, and they then spiral out of control with a disastrous bachelor party and the accidental destruction of the entire floral arrangement. In the absence of previous Pie slices Chris Klein, Shannon Elizabeth, Tara Reid, and Mena Suvari, director Jesse Dylan (How High) offers more generous helpings of Stifler, played by scene stealer Scott with his customary exuberance. As Michelle's parents, series newcomers Fred Willard and Deborah Rush figure prominently in the raucous bachelor party scene, and Eugene Levy is back on hand as Jim's dad to dispense parental pearls of wisdom to his embarrassment-prone son. Some of the comedy set pieces are forced, and the recycling of gags from the first two Pie outings becomes occasionally wearisome; but, for most of its running time, American Wedding is a worthy successor to its outlandish predecessors.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Although the movie cheerfully offends all civilized notions of taste, decorum, manners and hygiene, it has a sweetness that is impossible to discount, and it is often very funny.
Variety
The funny stuff continues for a quite satisfying conclusion during the wedding prep and ceremonies, which Stifler single-handedly transforms into his own personal gross-out comedy masterpiece.
