American Pie for Grownups
Image hosted by
I certainly was NOT expecting to enjoy this movie...let alone laugh my arse off through the entire thing. For one thing, Owen Wilson usually bugs the crap out of me. there's just something about his super slow drawl or his super strange-looking, can't turn away from nose...but in this movie, he and Vince Vaughn just seem to work. They play off each other and just nail it.

for those who haven't seen it (although i feel like i'm the last person to see this movie...) here's a short run-down: Jeremy (Vaughn) and John (Wilson) play cads who crash weddings to score women. they look up hot wedding announcements in the paper, do perfunctory research on the wedding party and guests, then figure out an angle. Are they brothers this time? Are they businessmen? Who in the party are they "related" to? Anything to get them in there and hitting on the talent. Women at weddings, well, you've heard the deal on them. Jeremy and John just rake 'em in.

But when the scoundrels crash the big-time Washington wedding party for the daughter of Secretary of the Treasury William Cleary (Christopher Walken), things change. John falls a little too sincerely for Claire Cleary (Rachel McAdams), one of the secretary's daughters. And Jeremy gets in a little over his head with another Cleary daughter, Gloria (Isla Fisher), who soon declares her undying, bunny-boilingly permanent love for Jeremy forever.

each character brings more and more hilarity - from Claire's boyfriend, to the Cleary's strange painter son, to the foul-mouthed Grandma (played by the rappin' granny herself...) And, of course, look out for the Will Farrell cameo. You won't be sorry.

If you haven't seen it, i highly recommend.
