Title: American Wedding Director: Jesse Dylan Year: 2003 Run time: 1hr 36m
As mentioned before, we foolishly decided to work through the three main American Pie films ahead of watching the Reunion one, and this was the third installment. I was curious to see how it would work with the characters clearly supposed to be growing up and being in more adult situations.
1:10 - She’s obsessed! 3:20 - “This is one of those moments you’re going to remember for the rest of your life.” 5:22 - Aww, the dad. 7:37 - I love that the MILF boys are in every film! 8:42 - That’s a different mum, right? 9:35 - Someone lets Stifler drive a school bus?? 15:05 - Who let Stifler into a school?? 19:11 - “Impolite would be an improvement.” 25:55 - 80s medley! The music gets better. 26:48 - How do dance offs decide the winner? 29:53 - So, a) that’s the woman out of Mad Men and b) she looks like an older sister. 32:32 - These people keep getting naked with the doors and windows open. 38:25 - “Being smart is so hard.” 38:54 - The Finchmeister! 47:12 - He becomes the help, he puts on a British accent. Hmm. 58:10 - He wonders how he keeps getting into these scrapes? By doing stuff like that! 1:03:28 - That’s too gross. 1:08:53 - Smugface! 1:15:42 - “I don’t do apologies so good.” 1:23:34 - I wasn’t expecting that. 1:31:30 - Bless.
It took me a while to get on board with this one, because it seemed that somehow Stifler had made the transition from hyper sex-addict teenager to properly psychotic adult. That manic laugh! It was less focused on him halfway through though, so that helped, and gradually the story became a lot more interesting. Preferred this one to the last, and again, the recurring jokes help things along.
