American Pie: The Wedding (2003)




Director: Jesse Dylan
Writer: Adam Herz (Screenplay)
Starring: Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Thomas Ian Nicholas, January Jones, Eugene Levy

Story: It’s the wedding of Him and Michelle and the gathering of their families and friends, including Jim’s old friends from high school and Michelle’s little sister.



Story: Following some of the original characters and how they act leading up to the wedding. It is good seeing how the characters have grown up apart from stifler. The addition of Michelle’s family adds to the story but losing some of the originals is a bit of a loss. (8/10)

Cast: Jason Biggs as Jim – Now still with Michelle he decides to propose to her. Following his exploits on getting everything ready for the wedding. Still has most of the funniest moments but has more serious side to him now.  (9/10)



Seann William Scott as Stifler – Still loud, rude ad outrageous working back at the school with the sports teams. Invites himself to the wedding by helping Jim, while he also is trying to nail Michelle’s sister Cadence. Star Performance (9/10)



Eddie Kaye Thomas as Finch – Wiser and more cultured has experienced the world. Also trying to get Cadence but has to act like Stifler to counter act Stifler nice guy routine. (8/10)

Alyson Hannigan as Michelle – Now getting married to Jim she is very against Stifler coming to the wedding, continues her kooky ways we all like about her. (8/10)



Eugene Levy as Jim’s Dad – Complete with his excellent speeches in the wrong situations. He also offers advice to Michelle now, which is nice touch. Favourite Character (9/10)



January Jones as Cadence – Michelle’s young sister who sparks an interest in Stifler and Finch. A nice addition to the cast offers something new for Finch and Stifler rivalary, which goes nicely along side the wedding story. (8/10)



Comedy: With some outrageous funny scenes and well-created situation much like bachelor’s party, which does horribly wrong. (9/10)

Music:  Brilliant soundtrack (10/10)

Suggestion: Its hard to say but this was the worst of the three films but it is still funnier than most comedies that come out. I would definitely suggest watching after you have seen the first two. (9/10)

Best Part: A cake, the dogs, Jim and Stifler watch to see how funny this scene is.

Worst Part: Lack of a complete cast from the original when if they were so close they wouldn’t miss their friends wedding.


Similar Too: The Hangover

Overall: What was the final chapter in the American Pie series before the awful straight to DVD ‘sequels’ you can see the decline in the series but you still get the strong laugh and good characters that do get included.
