American Wedding

release year: 2003
genre: comedy
viewing setting: home DVD, 2/7/04

synopsis: Jim and Michelle are getting married, and the entire process is fraught with mishaps.

impressions: Funny, but this franchise has definitely played itself out. Much like the last one, the only parts I found truly funny had the Stifler character in them, and even so, they weren't all as funny this time. There was a gross-out moment (or two) that topped anything seen in the last two movies. Also notable was a sort of redemption for Stifler.

something this movie has that no other movie has: the chocolate truffle that wasn't

acting: Jason Biggs and Eugene Levy again do a good job as the ultimate dork and dad combination. The various friends all reprise their roles well, but the show belongs to Seann William Scott as Stifler - his character really keeps things going.

final word: Worth seeing, and as good an ending to this franchise as we'll get.
