    A groin-numbing onslaught of sexual-humiliation and emission-ingestion gags.

    The makers of Wedding have so effectively managed to make offensiveness seem tame that this could be subversion financed by the religious right.

    If you do not bring pride, good taste or sense to this third American Pie installment, you'll have a good time.

    American Wedding celebrates limited comic imagination with the predictable outcomes of most dead-on-arrival WB sitcoms.

  • David Ng Village Voice (Top Critic)
    The formula has long since hardened into a flaky mess.

    An aimless charade of doggy poo, latex breasts and really, really bad language.

    This is the funniest of the three movies. The new characters and the tighter focus are just what the series needed.

    The makers of American Wedding know what pleases its target audience -- and the movie delivers the goods, even if some are recycled.

    If you like the formula -- Hallmark card sentiments contracted out to hardcore youth offenders -- American Wedding may be the best of the trio.

    Although the movie cheerfully offends all civilized notions of taste, decorum, manners and hygiene, it has a sweetness that is impossible to discount, and it is often very funny.

    The whole thing is one big fat geek wedding fiasco.

    A gagfest that makes viewers gag at least twice as often as they giggle.

  • Colin Covert Minneapolis Star Tribune (Top Critic)

    The fastest, funniest, wildest entry in the series.

    Still has all the crude, rude fun of its predecessors.

  • Bill Muller Arizona Republic (Top Critic)

    An energetic, raunchy comedy that's funnier and more creative than the last film.

  • Robert Koehler Variety (Top Critic)
    Tastier than the previous two.

    Has some gut-busting moments, but for the most part the thrill is gone from what the ads describe as the 'thrilling climax' of this gross-out franchise.

    At this wedding, you can have your cake and barf it, too.

    A better film than anyone should normally expect in this genre.

    If there was ever a case of Hollywood's over-stroking a formula to squeeze every last drop out of it, American Wedding is it.

    If you think you're going to like American Wedding, you probably will. If you don't, you probably won't.

  • Michael Rechtshaffen Hollywood Reporter (Top Critic)
    The familiar formula feels significantly watered-down the third time around.
