American Wedding

Rated 2.0 Those carefree, randy high-school teens of American Pie are now semi-responsible (but still randy) college grads, and two of them, Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), are getting married. Meanwhile, the groom’s pals, Stifler (Seann William Scott) and Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), vie for the attention of the bride’s sexy sister (January Jones). In Adam Herz’s meandering script, the series’ trademark brand of cheerful, sniggering vulgarity is even more forced than before, but the characters are getting downright (and surprisingly) likeable, and even the jackass naughtiness is almost endearing in its slobbery, smash-a-beer-can-on-your-forehead way. Jesse Dylan’s direction is slapdash and lackluster; sometimes he can’t seem to decide where to point the camera or who should be in focus.
