No surprises in this pie

American Pie: The Wedding finds our hero Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs) getting ready to tie the knot with girlfriend Michele (Alyson Hannigan).

American Pie: The Wedding finds our hero Jim Levenstein (Jason Biggs) getting ready to tie the knot with girlfriend Michele (Alyson Hannigan).

Needless to say things go terribly wrong during the proposal and Jim ends up being publicly humiliated again. Despite this she agrees to marry him and we are off on another juvenile romp.

The film has two storylines running side by side. The first has Jim trying to make sure his big day doesn’t get screwed up, and the second sees Steven Stifler (Seann William Scott) trying to bed Michelle’s virginal sister Cadence (January Jones).

All of this is just an excuse to set up one daft scene after another, including a trip to a gay bar and a bondage session with some strippers.

By now most people know what to expect when they pick up an American Pie film, and this one doesn’t disappoint, or does, depending on your point of view.

Comedy, 15. 2/5
