American Wedding
Jim (Jason Biggs), who's Jewish, is set to ask his girlfriend Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) who's Irish-Catholic, to marry him after a three-years' courtship, graduating from college and still in love. The film which is basically just a series of loosely connected sketches that don't quite add up to an entire film plot, is chock full of religious, ethnic and sexual jokes. It is not nearly as much about marriage as it is about sex. As the guests gather for the big event, which is to last a weekend, Jim's less-than-favorite friend Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott) takes a particular shine to the bride's beautiful sister Cadence (January Jones). Competition for her attention builds between him and Jim's much classier, intellectual buddy Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas). The vulgar Stifler decides that what he has to do to win her heart will necessitate him behaving against type, like a gentleman, which for him is not an easy task. With an assured sense of comic timing, director Jesse Dylan has fashioned an often hilarious film with several very funny performances. But this is unquestionably Seann William Scott's movie. Not far behind him is Eugene Levy, (last seen as the aging folk singer in the wonderful "A Mighty Wind") who is perfect as Jim's dad who can be counted on to embarrass his son at every turn. If you have a high tolerance for the sophomoric antics of a bunch of newly graduated over-sexed twenty-somethings, you'll probably enjoy this movie a lot. Otherwise, you'd best steer clear.
