Trivia

The scene when Jim is thanking the guys for everything toward the end of the movie was shot in two different locations. The shot of Finch, Kevin, and Stifler with the building behind them was shot in Los Angeles and the shot of Jim with the country club in the far background was shot in San Francisco. See more »

Goofs

Right after the pubic hair is shaved, they show Jim throwing the hair out the window. Follow the hair follicles down the side of the building until the window is out of shot. There is a clear jump cut here. See more »

Good conclusion, but missing some good characters
11 November 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

American Wedding is exactly the type of ending that suits the American Pie trilogy. It's not like the typical TV sitcom where it's feel good and lacking on humor. The traditional gross out honest humor is still present. Unfortunately not all the characters are due to scheduling conflicts.

The directors do a good job of covering the absent characters by simply not mentioning them but there lack of presence is felt. Oz isn't present during Jim's speech with the best men. Michele is the only returning female lead. Even some of the returning characters play a smaller role. Kevin is almost not seen in most of the film. He serves very little important role and is more in the background. Finch and Stifler seem to be the lead story, at times more than the wedding itself. It does work to create a funny story.

The story is well wrapped up and that hopefully means that no additional and poorly conceived sequels are made. There seems to be three rules that follow in all of these films.

1) Jim does something bizarre sexual act that embarrasses him.

2) Stifler ingest some bodily excretion

3) Finch has sex with Stifler's Mom

Obviously they've hit Stifler with about every funny excretion. The only options left are blood, pus, or earwax. Rule #2 is going to be hard to follow.
