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.

    They should have just stopped at part 1.

    One was funny as hell, Two was pretty tolerabe, but Three....was just miserable! It just wasnt the same. Stifler was the funniest in part 1 and 2, but in this one he wasnt even amusing.I would not recommend this to anyone.

    HILARIOUS Sequel to American Pie 2

    American Wedding was a hilarious finale for the trilogy. I thought it was the best of the 3 films. It had a lot more of Stifler's outrageous wordage and Jim's embarrassing moments. The laughter starts from the very beginning when Jim proposes to Michelle at a fancy restaurant. There were a couple downers as Finch once again hooks up with Stifler's mom (kind of old) the two Asian guys (don't know who they are) still adoring her. That's the reason for a 4 instead of a 5. The icing on the cake, though, was the bachelor party that Stifler holds at Jim's house. Everything goes down the drain when Jim accidentally brings Michelle's parents, who he is trying to impress, back to the house in the middle of the bachelor party.
