It was bound to happen, sooner or later.
The raucous and lovable characters from the wildly successful AMERICAN PIE
and AMERICAN PIE 2 have gone and done it…well, they’re planning on
doing it. Really soon. In front of everyone they know. In a big way.
Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are getting married.
With East Great Falls High, foreign exchange students, band camp, crazy
glue and summer college vacations now a thing of the past, Jim and
Michelle’s friends and family are ready to help usher the couple down
the aisle and over the threshold into adulthood.
Michelle wants the wedding to be perfect. Not exactly an easy task, even
with everyone on their best behavior and getting along…which probably
isn’t going to happen. Michelle’s knock-out sister, Cadence (January
Jones), has flown in to help out her sis as Maid of Honor. And once
Stifler (Seann William Scott) and Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) catch sight of
Cadence-the war to woo is on. With all rules out the window, Stifler turns
on his charismatic charm to nab the babe. Stifler? “Charismatic charm”?
Cautioned to tone it down by a nervous Jim - who already has his hands
full trying to impress Michelle’s somewhat stuffy parents, Harold and
Mary (Fred Willard and Deborah Rush) - Stifler abandons his customary plan
of attack and becomes the charming would-be boyfriend of every nice girl’s
dreams…which leaves Finch with no choice but to play the bad boy, with
Cadence torn between perfect gentleman Stifler and that low-life Finch.
It’s good for Jim that some things don’t change, as Jim’s Dad
(Eugene Levy) is an ever-present constant, dispensing well-meaning (but
sometimes clueless) advice to his son and future daughter-in-law,
occasionally crossing the line into the land of “too much information”
concerning him and Jim’s Mom (Molly Cheek).
Also confounding the groom and bride-to-be’s rush to the altar are Kevin
(Thomas Ian Nicholas), Jim and Finch’s trek to chase down the perfect
wedding dress for Michelle; an unexpected bachelor party complete with
naughty “maid” and sexy female “cop” (what’s a party without
strippers?); dancing lessons, a church full of dead flowers, personal
grooming mishaps and one, big, hairy wedding cake.
Welcome now to the thrilling climax of the AMERICAN PIE saga. Whom God
would join, let no hilarious and irreverent situation put asunder. Forever
hold your piece.
Recognizing themselves in the then high school seniors’ adventures,
moviegoers fell in love with the East Great Falls High gang of AMERICAN
PIE and stayed with them as they continued to grow up, heading to college
and other new frontiers. Now Jim, Michelle and the gang return, still
strongly linked by their on-going friendships…a little more mature and
ready to leap into their adult lives.
Like the characters it so wonderfully captured, the AMERICAN PIE franchise
began as a break-out teen comedy hit-a winning combination of raucous
humor and heart-and now “grows up” with AMERICAN PIE: THE WEDDING,
stepping up as a worthy entry in the tradition of great wedding comedies.
