Matt Stifler wants to be just like his big bro, making porn movies and having a good time in college. After sabotaging the school band, he gets sent to band camp where he really doesn't like it at first but then learns how to deal with the bandeez.

Now along with Paul Finch and Kevin Myers, Jim must plan the wedding. Unfortunately Steve Stifler is in town and won't let the wedding go past without having some fun himself, which includes setting up a secret bachelor party.Written by
This is the first, as well as only film in the series where the MILF Guys are addressed by their names, John (John Cho) and Justin (Justin Isfeld). John is addressed by his name again in American Reunion. See more »
The wedding is supposed to take place in Traverse City, Michigan. There are no rocky cliffs on the coastline in Traverse City, Michigan only sandy beaches and sand dunes. See more »
Well, Michelle, we did it. Happy graduation.

The debut was fair, the sequel fell in the gutter, this one digs itself out but is still in dire need. In usual sitcom or movie fashion, an impending wedding is met with nothing but disaster. For the "Pie" gang, they bring their usual naked and gagging humor along. Straight from the opening scene, Biggs butt is visible, the tired sex stuff is dove right into, and there's yet another new girl to lust after. But much as in part 2, everything is so labored and then lingered on. They manage a few more hearty laughs then the last film, but writer Herz's problem is that he can't help but kill the joke. Scenes run for too long 'till they're into the ground and not funny anymore. The gay disco sequence, the business with the grandmother, and Scott once again subjected to something disgusting. It gets a good laugh, but is forced and then won't die. The cast remains strong, though not always likeable. Stifler is once again a junior high school-ish moron, though not as hateful as the previous movie. He still can only speak in obscenities to his friends, again begging the question of who would let this guy in their group? Surprised Nicholas agreed to be in this, his character given absolutely nothing to do, he's pretty needless. The Finch and Jim characters stay middle-of-the-road, thereby being bearable. Though Finch gets to flex his uncharacteristic raunch muscle while competing with Stifler for the girl. Hannigan is a tad annoying as a girl who's only affection for Biggs is being "boned" by him, with not other deapth visible within her character. Levy again provides a good turn as the most horrified dad in screen history. But it all just barely passes as a fair time and hopefully the oven has been shut down on these. Even right down to the final moment, you're expecting one of those kingdom come jokes to end everything, they can't even manage that. If anything these characters can sail into adulthood with plenty of stories to share with their kids someday.
