American Wedding is exactly the type of ending that suits the AmericanPie trilogy. It's not like the typical TV sitcom where it's feel goodand lacking on humor. The traditional gross out honest humor is stillpresent. Unfortunately not all the characters are due to schedulingconflicts.
The directors do a good job of covering the absent characters by simplynot mentioning them but there lack of presence is felt. Oz isn'tpresent during Jim's speech with the best men. Michele is the onlyreturning female lead. Even some of the returning characters play asmaller role. Kevin is almost not seen in most of the film. He servesvery little important role and is more in the background. Finch andStifler seem to be the lead story, at times more than the weddingitself. It does work to create a funny story.
The story is well wrapped up and that hopefully means that noadditional and poorly conceived sequels are made. There seems to bethree rules that follow in all of these films.
1) Jim does something bizarre sexual act that embarrasses him.
2) Stifler ingest some bodily excretion
3) Finch has sex with Stifler's Mom
Obviously they've hit Stifler with about every funny excretion. Theonly options left are blood, pus, or earwax. Rule #2 is going to behard to follow.

This is the third installment in the life of Jim Levenstein and hisfriends. "American Wedding" seems to point out there will be follow upmovies perhaps. Why not? This formula has produced three films andcould "American Children", "American Divorce", "American Single Dad",etc. will be too far behind? Jesse Dylan directs this one.
The film is typical of the gross movie genre. The only excuse to watchthis one is Seann William Scott, who as the obnoxious Steve Stifler, isat his nastiest self in the film. Stifler has great moments, such as inthe sequence involving the rescue of the ring that one of the dogs hashave swallowed! Jason Biggs, the groom of the film, seems to be playingsecond fiddle as Seann William Scott's part was made more important tohis own, which in a way is what keeps the film alive because the nerdyJim doesn't elicit much fun when he shows on screen. Eugene Levy, FredWillard and Deborah Rush have good moments in the film.
Let's just hope the people behind these installments will see the lightand put all these characters to rest and give us more of Mr. Scott inhis own vehicles.

I loved the first american pie, but was so dissapointed with the second.itwas too direct,lacked creativity, and got old. (sorry to anyone who loved it). but ii wasdelightfullysurprised with American Wedding. The sexual jokes flowed much better, itwasallsituational as opposed to 'hahaha look at my wang', and in general justgotmorelaughs. It is a great movie to see in the theater while your in the moodforsomethinglike that, and a lot of fun. although half the original cast is now gone,the remaining feware a good mix for the last of the american pie trilogy. stifler is kindacrazy andunbearable in the beginning but bear with it, it eventually works with thestory and getsbetter.This is such a cute movie.. and yes i use the word cute. Its hilarious,butnot so over thetop that it looses the sweetness of it, being the fact that the main pointof this movie isthe wedding of jim and michelle.What a great, mindless piece of entertainment!
