This third try for the "American Pie" series is very good. Even though it has its fair share of gross out gags, I never stopped laughing. Everything that could go wrong at a wedding happens in this film. The gang is now finished with college, and the frustrated Jim Levinstein (Jason Biggs) has popped the big question to Michelle Flaherty (Alyson Hannigan).

It is always a treat for me to watch Jims ever-caring father (Eugene Levy) who tries so hard to help out. Jims two pals are also around to help out Kevin and Finch (Thomas Ian Nichols and Eddie Kaye Thomas), but they try to exclude their long-time chum Stifler (Seann William Scott) from the wedding. We can understand this due to Stiflers past bad behavior. Jim tries to impress his new in-laws (Fred Willard and Deborah Rush), who are not so hot on Jim or his friends. Stifler finds out he has been excluded from the wedding plans and jumps in feet first to be a part of the wedding. He teaches the clumsy Jim how to dance and tries to impress the brides parents and her beautiful sister Cadence (January Jones). He even tries to be a gentleman. Stifler does an amazing dance club sequence, tries to set up a surprise stag party when Jim has invited the brides parents over for a quite supper, and comes to the aid of the wedding by furnishing flowers after he destroyed the originals. He also turned the crabby grandma (Angela Patton) into a happy camper just before the wedding.

Expect some crude humor but I have not laughed this hard at a movie for a long time.
