  1. The crass sentimentality of American Wedding increasingly fits Norman Mailer's definition: "the emotional promiscuity of the basically unemotional." The jokes are unemotional, uncouth and mostly unfunny.
  2. Scott's energy helps keep the movie going during its sluggish moments and animates its few bright spots, including a pleasurably dumb showdown on the dance floor of a gay bar.
  3. Whatever novelty this series ever possessed has gone down the proverbial tube. The actors are on autopilot, and Adam Herz's screenplay panders to its immature target audience so cravenly and relentlessly that it verges on incompetence.
  4. The strain and desperation are apparent from the first scene.

    This third hunk of Pie is a worn-out gross-out, a remnant of a genre that now seems so five minutes ago.
  6. The third helping of ''American Pie'' offers little more than crumbs. Half the franchise's core cast (including Mena Suvari, Chris Klein, and Tara Reid) chose to skip the big fat geek wedding.
  7. A gross-out saga that sentient adults should avoid like the plague.
  8. 10
    For sheer ineptitude, crassness and unwatchability, American Wedding takes the cake.

    You'll see better film on ponds.

    American Wedding is definitely a worthy addition to the American Pie series. One of those movies you can watch several times and still laugh.
